Amina Adbi, an award-winning media personality, has dominated the East African airwaves for nearly a decade. Amina is a radio host, TV presenter, voice over artist, brand ambassador, and corporate and event MC who has dabbled in all aspects of media. Amina is also a mother and a wife, and some would even describe her as a superwoman.

Amina has mastered the art of juggling motherhood and a successful career. She does it so effortlessly and is one of Kenya's most entertaining media personalities, so we decided to compile a list of reasons why we can't help but admire her.

Law Was Her First Love


Amina has worked and appeared on almost every local TV station in Kenya, and her voice has been heard on all of the country's major radio stations. However, as difficult as it may be to believe, she was never particularly interested in the media industry. She had planned to become a lawyer throughout primary and high school, but that all changed when she joined the Homeboyz Radio academy.

She Married Her Boss


Having relationships with coworkers, let alone the boss, is the ultimate no-no in most organizations! However, a few rules were not going to stop this outgoing personality from finding the love of her life. Amina met DJ Rabar, her boss at the time, while working at Homeboyz Radio, and the rest is history. The couple married and later welcomed their son in 2014.

PaceSetter


Amina has always distinguished herself from the crowd. Her outgoing personality and tenacious attitude not only landed her her first radio hosting gig, but it has also led to more opportunities 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. Talk about making inroads into the industry!

MasterChef


Amina has admitted that when she is not gracing our TV screens, hosting events, or entertaining us on the radio, she will most likely be found in the kitchen. Her passion for cooking began at a young age, and it has only been heightened by her son's fondness for her food.

Grass To Grace


Even though Amina lives a luxurious life, wearing designer outfits, driving expensive cars, and living in expensive homes, the media personality'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 frequently stated that she works so hard because she is the breadwinner in her family, supporting her parents and siblings.

Amina is a trailblazer in Kenya's entertainment industry, and we hope to see her continue to conquer the world.
