Great determination has put artist Rose Nyabhate in the map of Kenyan entertainment industry.

Your current job

I am a TV producer at Y254, a new youth tv channel owned by Kenya Broadcasting Cooperation (KBC). I also act in classmates and Je huu ni Ungwana both that airs in KBC.

Do art pay?

Yes, I am living in Nairobi and it’s the art that pays my bills. I see this industry as a potential employer of many youths and if the government puts more emphasis then it will cut youth unemployment by a big percentage. The government should realize that youths are more into entertainment and hatch a plan of opening up the industry. Stations should also give more attention to local content.

Any other side hustles when you were still struggling?

I started as a college teacher before I moved to acting as a full time job and I taught in bought Nairobi and Kisumu counties. My students are all over working as Social workers.

Are you working hard or smart?

I can say both (giggles), if you don’t work hard nobody can recognize you. I spent a lot of time working hard to build my brand but nowadays I do work smart.

How were you making that extra coin in college?

By hawking. I used to bring in important wares and sell them at exaggerated prizes. I think I have entrepreneurial spirit too (laughs).

Despite achieving great in life, Nyabhate has got her share of hardships career wise

I was dismissed by a leading entertainment company by asking for my rights. I have moved on and I don’t have hard feelings because I believe they helped me to build my brand.

Your future plans

I am working on strengthening my initiative ‘We are watching campaign Kenya’ which synthesizes girls on anti-FGM (female genital mutilation). I plan to register an NGO in future where I will continue to champion girl child rights

Are you an early riser or night owl?

I prefer working till late in the midnight because my day usually starts at 7 am.

Any memorable moment in life

I remember telling my late mum that one day I would be in TV screens and she encouraged me. Now I am disappointed that she is not here to see how her daughter has matured artistically.
