…settled down, referring to a Vogue-produced clip where she learns to cook the Kenyan staple from her mother.
“You put me in a lot of trouble,” she responded with a smile.
She had confessed to me in a previous interview that she missed ugali but didn’t know how to make it, which set Kenyan social media alight.
She was detached and appeared bored throughout the rest of the interview, which prompted some to say she didn’t value African presenters, compared with her American appearances.
The interview ended abruptly when I asked about reports that she was a prima donna and I was ushered out without a picture.” Larry narrated.
He also disclosed how local celebrities like Jimmy Gait, David Rudisha and Nyashinski behave like small gods.
“Others like David Rudisha, who has consistently refused to do the show with an ever-expanding list of excuses.
Even that is still better than Jimmy Gait, who cancelled last October in a text message to producer Kevin Gitau, then refused to answer calls.
Then there are those who are booked in advance but decline to come on when they land in Nairobi, like Koffi Olomide, or Nigerian artistes Flavour and Sinach. Well before he got deported for his airport drama, Olomide just couldn’t be bothered to honour an invite.
Flavour reportedly had drama with immigration officers when he arrived that ruined his mood while Sinach wouldn’t leave her hotel room.
Every so often, there is also a guest like Nyashinski who confirms, then stops answering calls and ends up on another station” He further said.
