For nearly a decade, Amina Adbi, an award-winning media personality, has dominated the East African airwaves. Amina has worked as a radio host, a television host, a voice over artist, a brand ambassador, a corporate and event MC, and has participated in every aspect of media. Amina is a mother and a wife, and some consider her to be a superwoman.

Amina has perfected the art of balancing motherhood and a booming career. She does it effortlessly and is one of Kenya's most fascinating media personalities, so we decided to put together a list of reasons why we admire her.

Law Was Her First Love


Amina landed a job in media and has appeared on virtually every local Kenyan television station, as well as all of the country's major radio stations. Despite this, she was never particularly interested in the media industry, as difficult as it may be to believe. Throughout primary and secondary school, she had planned to be a lawyer, but that all changed when she joined the Homeboyz Radio academy.

She Married Her Boss


Getting into relationships with work colleagues, let alone the boss, have always been frowned upon in the majority of workplaces! However, a few rules would not inhibit this outgoing personality from meeting the love of her life. Amina met her boss at the time, DJ Rabar, while working at Homeboyz Radio, and the rest is history. The year 2014 saw the married couple welcome their son into the world..

PaceSetter


There is no denying that Amina has always stood out in a crowd. Her bubbly personality and tenacity not only landed her her first radio hosting job, but also opened up new opportunities for the media personality. In 2020, Amina was the first East African to co-host the 7th Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) alongside Nigeria's Ike Isakioduwa.

MasterChef


Amina has admitted that when she is not gracing our television screens, hosting an event, or captivating us on the radio, she can be found in the kitchen. Her love of cooking began at a young age, and it has only grown stronger as a result of her son's admiration for her cooking.

Grass To Grace


Amina's life has not always been glamorous, despite the fact that she wears designer clothes, drives expensive cars, and lives in expensive homes. Contrary to popular belief, Amina's story is one of humble beginnings, as she had to work her way to the top. She has stated on numerous occasions that she works so hard because she is the primary earner in her family, supporting her parents and siblings.

Amina is a trailblazer in Kenya's entertainment industry, and we look forward to seeing her take on the rest of the world in the future.
