  • Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) presenter, Nancy Onyancha, has perfected the art of not carrying all her eggs in one basket, having started a venture considered her side hustle, earning her extra cash.

    Onyancha, who made her debut after the revamp of KBC studio, made a comeback hosting the Monday evening show known as Darubini, alongside renown Swahili presenter, Harith Salim.

    She has over 10 years of experience working in different media stations, making her one of the highly-rated presenters in the government-owned station. The presenter is known for exuding a lot of confidence and passion while making an appearance on TV.

    Initially, she wanted to be a lawyer. This was influenced by the need to champion for the rights of different people in the society.

    She, however, became a journalist, but that did not stop her from pursuing her passion of championing for the rights of women and children in relation to FGM and maternal health.

    Her social life is filled with a lot of travelling spiced up even more with other outdoor activities. This hobby was developed from her previous work experience as a field reporter for over seven years.

    At KBC, she joined the likes of Catherine Kasavuli, Tom Mboya, Cynthia Nyamai, Shiksha Arora , John Jacob Kioria , Fred Indimuli who rejoined KTN, Juma Ballo, Fayyaz Qureishi, the late Badi Muhsin, and Pauline Sheghu.

    Her Side Hustle

    From her official social media page, Onyancha has indicated that she currently runs a side hustle that is undoubtedly earning her good returns.

    She is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of No Collection, a company that deals with selling high quality designer clothes.

    Her clothing line has a wide variety of neatly pieced attire with high quality fabrics appealing to the modern dressing style.

    Onyancha's line specializes mainly in ladies attire, offering them a variety to choose from. Her store has different types of dresses, swimming suits among other clothing.

    The price range is affordable with some of her pieces going for as little as Ksh1,000 depending on the type of clothing and the fabric used to neat it.

    To make her pieces accessible to all, she delivers them all over the country once the orders have been made.

    Her inspiration to start a clothesline was inspired by the need to meet the ever growing demand for women's outfits in the country.

    In 2018, she made highlights after she walked down the aisle with a colleague, Joab Mwaura, and this year, they celebrated their third wedding anniversary.

    The two wedded in a lavish ceremony that was only attended by close friends and family members.

    The couple lost their jobs at K24 in 2020, forcing them to become entrepreneurs. Together, they revealed plans to expand their own media company.

    "At Sauti Tajika, we cover TV and online commercials, documentaries, event coverage, and voice-overs," they stated.

    Joab and Nancy incorporated Sauti Tajika Production Company as a business to generate extra income.  The company has produced some great pieces, including serving some influential political leaders such as the Former Nairobi Governor, Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
