Former Hot 96 FM show host Shix Kapienga has revealed that she was hit hard after she was fired from Royal Media Services earlier this year.
The sassy and streetsmart actress and radio host opened up about her fears on Adelle Onyango’s Legally Clueless podcast.
“What do I do? It is not like I have achieved what I needed to achieve at a certain age, but I’m not complaining, but it was too abrupt,” she said.
“Yes, I know I wanted to resign, call it quits, but I did not expect it too soon.”
Shix Kapienga also spoke about her tough upbringing in Kangemi neighbourhood in the western side of Nairobi.
“God’s forgotten people. We gave it that nickname because before you get to our place in Kangemi, it is a long stretch from the main road,” she said.
“I look back and realise our parents struggled and there is a time I told my mum, I wish I knew,” she said.
Shix said it makes her realise you need to appreciate the little you are getting, it doesn’t matter whether it is 100 or 50 or 10 or nothing.
