    Tom has been in the media industry for more than 15 years but they have been married for 13 years. 

    The power couple celebrated their anniversary in May 2020, with Massawe attributing their strong bond to commitment. 

    "It is resilience. In it, you discover your elasticity and capacity to do more than you ever gave yourself credit for.

    "It is a sacrifice because you learn to make concessions therein. It is a vulnerability, a high-stakes gamble, where your heart is the prize or the price,” she stated.

    Tom met her in 2002 while they both worked at Baraka FM where he was a presenter while she was an intern. 

    During a past interview, he described his marriage to Massawe as a learning curve. 

    “Being married to my wife has been a huge learning experience. Forget the beauty, she is intelligent and committed,” he shared. 

    Massawe and Japanni are blessed with three beautiful kids.
