Watch as Kanze Dena sings and dances to Gloria Muliro’s song

Kanze Dena is one smart operator.

The State House Spokesperson is trying to humanise the office that she works for -that is the presidency. And not in the way that Alfred Mutua did (with long drawn boring speeches and press conferences) but with suave and charm.

Kanze has been regarded as a mentor and example of an admirable woman ever since she was on Citizen T.V. The mother of one who always admits she is a saved Christian was spotted dancing to Gloria Muliro’s song ‘Ndio Yako’.

She shared a video on her official Twitter page showing herself and the hosts on Hope FM singing and dancing to the song. In the video, one can see that Kanze was really enjoying the song and called it one of the best praise and worship songs.

Some of the comments to her dancing are below;

Princess Kudura Bisase 👑 When great people come together obviously great things happen

Filikita Jillo Great.. Kudos my friends. God is your strength even as you reach out to many souls.

Kanze’s job is public relations and she is doing a magnificent job. Public relations is the practice of deliberately managing the spread of information between an individual or an organization and the public. Public relations may include an organization or individual gaining exposure to their audiences using topics of public interest and news items that do not require direct payment.

This Is How Kanze Dena Looked Before Fame And Money

Kanze Dena whose real name is Kellen Beatrice Kanze Dena is one of the most respected swahili anchors in Kenya today. She is one of the best news presenters of our time who complements Lulu Hassan.

She was born to Duruma parents, a community in Kwale county where she was brought up by a single mother after her father left when she was four years old.

Kanze Dena is both a first born and a fourth born since her mother got married with three other children and grew up both in Nairobi and Mombasa.

She was once a student at Kieni Girls High School and once suffered low-esteem because she was bow-legged and had protruding tummy and boobs at a tender age and she was looked down upon because of it.

After high school, she worked as a waitress and got pregnant in the process. After she delivered baby Natasha, she passed away three months later and this threw her into depression and contemplated committing suicide.

She found solace at Nairobi Baptist Church and joined Bible classes. She worked as an intern at KBC and later read bulletings after the KBC boss heard her voice and recommended she goes for a voice test after which she qualified.

Her beautiful nature is seen even in her today. She posted a picture on her instagram page reminding herself of the days back then when she was still in high school.

Here is what she posted and reactions from her fans:
