Amina Adbi, an award-winning media personality, has dominated the East African airwaves for nearly a decade. Amina has worked as a radio host, TV host, voice over artist, brand ambassador, corporate and event MC, and has dabbled in every aspect of media. Amina is also a mother and a wife, and some regard her as a superwoman.

Amina has mastered the art of juggling motherhood and a successful career. She does it with ease and is one of Kenya's most entertaining media personalities, so we decided to compile a list of reasons why we admire her.

Law Was Her First Love


Amina began working and has been featured on nearly every local Kenyan television station, and her voice has been heard on all of the country's major radio stations. Despite this, as difficult as it may be to believe, she was never particularly interested in the media industry. She had planned to be a lawyer throughout primary and secondary school, but that all changed when she joined the Homeboyz Radio academy.

She Married Her Boss


Relationships with coworkers, let alone the boss, are frowned upon in most organizations! A few rules, on the other hand, would not prevent this outgoing personality from meeting the love of her life. While working at Homeboyz Radio, Amina met her boss at the time, DJ Rabar, and the rest is history. In 2014, the couple married and welcomed their son.

PaceSetter


Amina has always been a standout in a crowd. Her outgoing personality and tenacity not only landed her her first radio hosting gig, but also opened up new doors for the media personality. Amina became the first East African to co-host the 7th Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) with Nigeria's Ike Isakioduwa in 2020. 

MasterChef


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

Grass To Grace


Despite the fact that she wears designer clothes, drives expensive cars, and lives in expensive homes, Amina's life has not always been glamorous. Amina's story, contrary to popular belief, 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 and is responsible for supporting her parents and siblings.

Amina is a pioneer in Kenya's entertainment industry, and we hope to see her take on the world in the future.
