Larry Madowo’s BBC Colleagues Unveil Special Farewell Gift [VIDEO]

Larry Madowo is taking a sabbatical starting from August this year after his acceptance to be among the beneficiaries of the 44th Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Business and Economics at the Columbia Journalism School.

Media personality, Larry Madowo, could not hide his joy after receiving a unique gift from his colleagues at BBC Africa during his farewell.

In a 24-second clip that was shared by Peter Mwangangi, Madowo is seen holding up a card that is shaped like a cat while laughing.

When he was the host of The Trend, which airs on NTV every Friday, the 32-year-old newscaster had a segment where he aired funny cat videos.

The card that he was given by his colleagues brought back fond memories of when Larry was hosting the show.

He let the cat out of the bag that one of the people who gifted him the card used to select the videos for him.

You guys are talking about cat videos but I used to work with this guy on them. Joseph, I have not forgotten.

“He is the one who used to select the cats. When he was in Uganda, he had like 4 cats. He had no friends, just cats,” he remarked.

On Monday, Madowo announced his temporary exit from BBC Africa where he works as a Business Editor.

He noted that he only had three weeks left before he took time off to be a full-time student at Columbia University in New York.

The former NTV news anchor is not lucky but blessed to have been chosen among the beneficiaries of the 44th Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Business and Economics at the Columbia Journalism School.

The program, which runs for one year, is awarded to individuals with four-year experience in business journalism.

The fellows come from top media publications and their work has been published in Bloomberg, MarketWatch, Quartz, Politico, Mother Jones, BBC, Africa Report, The Washington Post, Reuters, and The Journal News in White Plains, reads an announcement on the school’s website.

The fellowship will provide full tuition and a living stipend of Sh6 million for experienced journalists to take graduate courses at the university.

These Fellows reflect what was one of the most globally competitive and diverse applicant pools the Bagehot program has seen in its 44 years,” said Raju Narisetti, professor of professional practice and director of the program.

Madowo did not shed light on to whether he will be back with the British broadcaster after completing the fellowship once he is done.

Celebrities Kenyan men can borrow ideas from on how to rock a suit

A wise man and very stylish sage was once quoted:

A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life.” “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. Clothes and manners do not make the man; but when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance.

2. Ommy Dimpoz

The most admirable thing about him, however, is the fact that whether he is in suits or not he is still as fashionable as a man can be.

3. Trevor Noah

The very handsome Trevor Noah who dons many hats like comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and television host is not only talented but fashionable as well.

With his melodious tunes, a body worth being on the cover of magazines, who wouldn’t want such a man for a husband.

Larry Madowo shows off Sh340,000 Remy Martin Louis Xiii

Spoiler alert!1 You can’t afford it.

Former NTV presenter Larry Madowo is living the good life, and his weekend shenanigans is proof of this.

The outspoken media personality is in London, and is making sure things are poppin’.

What we have to wonder if this is his favorite drink. Louis XIII is a cognac produced by Rémy Martin, a company headquartered in Cognac, France, and owned by the Rémy Cointreau Group.

This is a favourite of Elton John, Christian Dior and even Winston Churchill, who celebrated his election with it in 1951. It was served to Queen Elizabeth II in the Versailles Palace to celebrate her visit of 1957.

So why is this Cognac so expensive? All Remy Martin is made with grapes from the Grande Champagne vineyards in the Cognac region of France. The brandies are blended and aged in oak barrels, some of them dating back centuries, to make Remy Martin’s famous Cognac.

Sounds fancy right? Check it out.

Trevor’s post read, One of the greatest brains I have ever worked with @larrymadowo you were my friend, inspiration and my brother. On to greater things my friend. Your lessons will forever remain. Shine on my brother..shine on #InternationalWaves.

We wish Madowo all the best in his future endeavors.
