    "This is Goma, the capital of the Eastern region of DRC. Things are good and we are fit. Residents here wake up early every Sunday to exercise before going to church. I joined them and see I am good," Chamwada caption the photos.

    He explained that the residents of the estate exercised regularly.

    "Today I joined them because they exercise every Sunday morning. It is normal just like Nairobi, only that here they do it religiously. 

    "In Nairobi, there are people who wake up to go exercise in Karura and Buruburu among others. It is not a tradition, it is just a practice," he clarified.

    Chamwada who travels a lot recording shows abroad stated that his work can be challenging at times due to lengthy procedures one has to go through in Western countries just to have something done.

    In an earlier interview, he confirmed that it was easier working with Kenyans abroad, stating that the cultural influences make it easy to get their contacts and even interviews over the phone, unlike their foreign counterparts.

    In early 2020, Chamwada terminated his company Chams Media's contract with KTN before giving the show a new home at NTV.

    The show has consistently been ranked among the country's best performing
