  • Rashid Abdalla and colleagues at Citizen TV surprised Lulu Hassan┬áduring a live bulletin on Sunday, April 24.

    In a video seen by Kenyans.co.ke, Lulu's colleagues led by Hassan Mugambi, Faiza Maganga and Chemutai Goin, stormed the studio at the end of the 7pm bulletin hosted by the couple with a two-tier cake with Lulu's image imprinted on the icing.

    The Swahili presenter was without words, as the cake was placed on the desk. Just as she thanked the team, Goin brought in a second cake.

    "Oh my God! He has brought with him a cake. Thank you very much. I am very grateful," Lulu remarked as she wiped tears off her eyes.

    Lulu and Goin broke into a birthday song, with her husband wishing her well as she turned a year older. The couple shared a tet-a-tet, with Rashid asking his wife how old she was turning.

    "May the Lord add you more. How old are you turning?" he posed. "I am officially 38 years old today. At least I am not yet 40," she teased as her and her colleagues burst into chuckles.

    In addition, Lulu Hassan, who is a proprietor of Jiffy Pictures - a film production company, received birthday wishes from cast members of the Maria, Zora and Sultana shows including Yasmin Said and Sarah Hassan.

    "Happy Birthday Lulu! You are an inspiration to so many people out there, and I just want to let you know that you are appreciated. I wish you great health, happiness and a lot more success in the coming year," remarked Sarah Hassan.

    The bulletin ended with Lulu, Rashid and their colleagues cutting the cake and an image of the Swahili presenter alongside a cake - a celebration of her birthday by Citizen TV and the Royal Media Services.

    Lulu's surprise birthday comes barely a week after she and her three children surprised Rashid on live TV on his birthday on April 17. As the presenter wrapped up the show, his children appeared, singing him a birthday song.

    The trio was escorted by another Citizen TV anchor, Hassan Mugambi, who also presented the cake to the journalist.
