Celebrated media personality Willis Raburu has finally revealed that he was approached by NTV to move to their station and take over The Trend show.
The 10 Over 10 show host, in an interview on K24’s Talk Central, said that he consulted his bosses first before making a decision.
The meeting with his bosses was to ensure that in case he leaves and things don’t go well, he would be given another chance at Citizen. He said;
What happened was, there was some offers that were made but you know that am so into Citizen, Royal Media, Sk Macharia and you know what happens in the media is, there is such a rush, they offer you money, throw figures but if it’s not going the direction of your brand, but at the end of the day the environment where you are working is also important, I had to talk to my bosses to understand if the move was okay. I didn’t want to make a mistake because you can jump ship then it goes wrong, the direction of what they were offering was not really what am doing, I have done it before so I just went there and had a conversation and I decided to stay.
Recently, Raburu showered Jeff Koinange with praise for advising him how to survive in the competitive TV industry.
THIS MOMENT MEANS A LOT TO ME BECAUSE 8 YEARS AGO AFTER BEING FRUSTRATED AT A PLACE I WAS INTERNING (ANOTHER STATION BEFORE CITIZEN) JEFF TOLD ME ”DO NOT GIVE UP, ONE DAY PEOPLE WILL KNOW YOUR NAME” AND 8 YEARS LATER WORKING AT ROYAL MEDIA SERVICES HAS INDEED HELPED ME. I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR THE OPPORTUNITY AND FOR DR. SK WHO CONTINUES TO BE A FOUNTAIN OF WISDOM AND ENCOURAGEMENT!!! HE SAYS “WHEN YOU FAIL, LAUGH AT YOURSELF AND TRY AGAIN!.
