Since July 2018, the dynamic duo of Rashid Abdalla and his wife Lulu Hassan has dominated the Swahili News business, often revealing nearly intimate details of their offscreen lives.
During an episode of their acclaimed Mawaidha na Bi Msafwari show on Saturday, September 26, Hassan revealed peculiar habits of a boys club that consists of Citizen TV employees.
The three; Lulu, Abdalla and Bi Msafwari, were discussing possible reasons why men do not like being checked on by their wives while away from the home.
In the course of the discussion, Hassan gave an example of a news director identified only as Roba, who preferred not being incessantly phoned by his wife, arguing that he "did not leave with vegetable money."Citizen TV relationships adviser Bi Msafwari.Citizen Digital
"Lulu, you will make our director refrain from participating in our discussions because you use his opinion during on-air discussions," warned Abdalla.
In the course of the discussion, Hassan further revealed that she had noticed, in the weekend of Saturday, September 19, that men had developed a rule of having all their phones on the table while hanging out.
This, she explained, was to prevent them from receiving calls from their wives, and if they did call, the man would be made to finance an entire round of drinks.
"Last weekend, through men's discussions inside this studio, I discovered that whenever they go out to have fun, all of them must display their phones on the table.
"If your wife calls, you will have to buy everyone a drink," stated Hassan.
In his rejoinder, Abdalla explained that he had fallen victim to the punishment, insinuating that his wife called him quite often during his hangout with colleagues.
Msafwari later advised Abdalla (and the entire men folk) to be wary of some friends because not all friendships are genuine. She explained that some of the men were out to drive their colleagues astray.
Hassan had earlier stated that part of the reason for incessant calls from wives to their husbands were driven by suspicions that some of the friends could not to be trusted.
Msafwari, wishing she could be called more often, also noted that more calls from spouses only affirmed that their love for each other were stronger.Citizen TV anchors Lulu Hassan (left) and Rashid Abdalla with matching pilot uniforms during a bulletin in June 2020.
