  • When Inooro TV Ken Wakuraya is not anchoring news on the station, he is busy on his farm; tending to poultry, writing scripts or entertaining revellers with country music.

    Wakuraya, who has gained popularity over the years for his craft in the media and arts industry, is a jack of all trades.

    Speaking during a show on YouTube, the media personality disclosed he was a farmer who kept chicken and horses. He observed it was more difficult to keep horses as they are very expensive.

    He went on to disclose that he was counting losses after losing two horses in just a period of a month.

    "Tending to horses is a bit difficult and losing a horse is a huge loss. However, just like any other business, I dust myself and know my next move," he stated.

    In addition to farming, Wakuraya divulged he was writing a book which he hopes to launch in 2022.

    "I was hoping to launch my book this year but because I want everything to go well, I decided not to rush things and slated the event for next year in February or March," he stated.

    The media personality is one that has come to be loved and admired by many for mastering his craft over the years. Other than presenting prime time news, Wakuraya hosts a Country music show which airs on Inooro TV.

    His career began on the Tahidi High Show which previously aired on Citizen TV. There, he was cast as a Geography Teacher.

    In 2015, when Kuraya heard that Royal Media Services was opening a Kikuyu TV station, he tried it out and became among the pioneer vernacular TV presenters. 

    Before his debut on Tahidi High, Wakuraya had tried out a number of jobs including; writing poems in newspapers and working as a salesman in the pharmaceutical field.
