Kiss Fm Presenter Kamene Goro on Monday October 19, spoke about her journey in the limelight and how one ultimate decision almost ruined her career in media.
Speaking in an interview on Jessy Junction, the 28-year-old, who has been in the media industry for 8 years, narrated how media was not her first choice in school.
"I went to the University of Nairobi where I pursued an undergraduate degree in law. I had numerous scholarship offers to study abroad but my father declined all of them, " she said.Radio presenter Kamene Goro pictured at Kiss FM studios on July 13, 2020
The sassy presenter further stated that her choice to pursue law was influenced by her father's close connections within the said industry.
"During my second year, immediately after doing my clinicals, I was dispatched to a law firm, owned by my father's friend, as a paralegal.
"Eight months passed by and I felt a calling to pursue something else. Then an opportunity presented itself at Ebru TV, which I took," she stated.
In 2015 life took an immediate turn for the then 23-year-old, when she exchanged vows with a foreigner who had charmed his way into her life.
"I decided to call it quits on my job, so I gave my employer at Ebru TV a two days notice after which I travelled to Tanzania to live with my husband," she recalls.
Unbeknown to her family, the acclaimed presenter had left her career in the name of love, a decision which, she states, still haunts her.
She noted that during the course of the two year marriage, she experienced domestic squabbles like any normal couple but one phone call from her husband one evening made her life come to a screeching halt.
"One day when I was travelling to Nairobi, he (husband) called me and decided to end the marriage. In utter shock, I hung up the phone and that was the final time we spoke.
"Looking back, I thought he was my everything. For a whole week, I was a total wreck because of the divorce as I blamed myself for the failure of the marriage," she added.
Her ability to cope with the ordeal was strenuous at first as she felt all her time invested in the marriage had gone down the drain. The radio presenter however urged all ladies in similar situations to get back in the dating game in order to cease from self accusation.
The radio girl also responded to the backlash she received from supporting local Gengetone artistes.
"My choice of supporting Gengetone artistes is based on making an impact in the youths lives. The same critics who are quick to judge don't pay for the artistes' studio time or source for their venues. If you want them to sing clean, link them up with gospel artistes," she opined.
During the interview, the radio presenter disclosed her struggles with negativity and hurtful comments on social media which ensued from an ordeal which transpired a while back.
"One time a story was published about me, which stated that I allegedly received Ksh70,000 for going on a date. This story made headlines and forced me to leave the country for a while," she revealed.
The comical side of Jessy was also seen throughout the interview as he tried to wow Kamene Goro with his charming antics.Former Milele FM presenter Jalang'o (Felix Odiwuor) (right) and Kiss FM Presenter Kamene Goro.
