It seems Kenyans are tired of waiting to see Larry Madowo’s wife and probably kids. They want to see the multi-talented media personality happy and for that reason they can’t stop pressuring him to marry.
So, Larry Madowo recently introduced one of the most special women in his life, his first employer Lorna to his fans.
“Lorna Nyatome gave me my first paid job in media when I was just 19. She hired me as a writer for a now-defunct tech magazine called E1. I was objectively terrible but she had faith in me & saw potential. I’m forever grateful to her for getting me started in journalism that early,” he tweeted accompanied by the photo below.
That gig cemented my love for technology, taught me how to write and reaffirmed my career choice. Even though I went on to cover business news, politics and pop culture, tech has always been my first love.
“The moral of this story is that you need to start now, with what you have and what you already know. As a 19-year-old first year student in college, I didn’t have much writing skills but I knew I wanted to make a career in journalism. When I went for the interview that got me hired at KTN, I had nothing but those writing samples from jobs like this. Linus Kaikai, Farida Karoney and the management then hired me purely on the strength of my writing.
Don’t wait until you get your diploma, degree or professional certification. Start looking for opportunities in your chosen field now!’ he added.
Well. some of his fans praised him for being a great journalist while others were more preoccupied with trolling him specifically asking him to marry before it’s too late.
