However, he was left tongue-tied after his long-term mentor and inspiration, seasoned journalist, Julie Gichuru celebrated him in a special way.

Julie literally took some time off just to send the ’10 over 10′ show host a birthday message, recalling how they first met at Citizen TV and to date, she deeply appreciates him.

Happy Birthday Willis. Wishing you a very happy birthday on this special day. Right from the beginning, it was so clear you had so much passion for the work, your heart is in the things that you do and that’s such a special thing. Never ever lose that!

Julie Gichuru

Sending some advice his way:

Willis, this life can be really really be tough and the thing we have to always remember, is there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. My message to you is: Never lose your light, you have such a bright light, you have such a warmth. Never lose hope. Wishing you a wonderful year ahead and Please, stay safe and be well.

All this time, a thrilled Willis was busy rotating on his chair in the studio, shying away from the camera, and blushing at the moment, til he put on his shades to prevent the tears from running.

Once the clip was over, Willis threw himself to the ground, kicking his legs in the air, you’d think his brain was retrogressing.

Flaunting: That was Julie people! Oh my God! Eh! Julie Gichuru. Mimi nakwambia ni Julie peke yake! Wacha tu tukae na huyo Julie mehn! There can only be one.

Before confessing:

I’m weak.

He became unruly in the studio and to say the least, this guy was over the moon.

He came out sweating, breathing heavily and tears rolling down his cheeks.

33-year-old Willis Raburu explains why he hosts kids show 

Citizen TV presenter Willis Raburu has been trolled several times for hosting his teenager’s show 10 over 10.

Many have always claimed that the presenter shouldn’t be on the show because he’s too old.

The presenter recently revealed that he has always loved journalism and hosting 10 over 10 has always been a dream job for him.



He narrated how he started the job while in Unversity and even charged 30 shillings for his first show.

“You see I had always dreamed from when I was a young boy of hosting a show, when I was 7 years old I would read to my mum the newspaper,” he said.

Adding: “When I joined campus I revived it, the people of Moi University, main campus, remember WAYNE LIVE, a show I would charge 30 bob entry fee.”
