His wife Lulu Hassan said that the party had to wait because they were observing Ramadhan.
The journalist was overcome with emotions after his wife Lulu hugged him and welcomed him to join their pals.
From the videos shared by Producer Monicah Kiragu on her Instagram page, Rashid received lots of love and even had money thrown at him to celebrate his life.
Among the guests were workmates Faizah Wanjiru, Emmanuel Igunza, Wangechi Muriuki and Hassan Mugambi.
On Rashid's birthday, Lulu threw him another surprise by walking into the studio with their children just after Rashid was done with the bulletin.
The kids were so happy to see daddy at work while singing birthday songs to him.
