His name is Mark Masai. Mark is the most down-to-earth man I have ever met. He made us feel so comfortable despite our insecurities.
I know many people who Mark has helped get jobs in the media. Mark has been trending because one of Kenya’s top TV stations NTV has let go of him.
I know he will be back bigger and better, and offer him my unconditional support.Kevin Otiende Via LinkedIn
