Famous thespian Ian Mbugua was one of the most feared judges on Tusker Project Fame when the show was a must-watch on TV.
Ian’s ability to either lift or crush a contestant was unrivaled with many comparing his method to that of the original bad boy judge from the UK, Simon Cowell.
And the assumption that Ian was a terrible person persisted in some people’s minds as they could not divorce his judging persona and who was behind the veneer.
But over the years, the veteran stage and screen actor has managed to convert critics to his side, showing that his rational and logical side was just a layer of a more multi-faceted individual.
This week, Ian added a memento for the fans showing his heart of gold when he recorded a wonderful ballad for acting colleague Brenda Wairimu on her 32nd birthday.
And the man wasn’t playing around! He went all out for the mother of one serenading her with his impressive singing.
An over the moon Brenda shared a video of Ian singing for her. In the clip, Ian, who is wearing a yellow T-shirt, sings his heart out for the mother of one. “Happy birthday to you, happy birthday, beautiful Brenda. May God richly bless you,” Ian said in the video.
Brenda didn’t take the gesture lightly and expressed gratitude for the love she was receiving, saying it made her so happy. “I am so thankful for all this love…This is the best thing, man. I’m so happy, so so happy @ian.mbugua. Thank you so much. And he is wearing yellow!” she wrote.
Many fans were more than impressed by Ian’s singing and said as much in the comments section. Check out the video below;
