The Teen Republik Duo

Martin Kimathi’s exit from NTV come months after his co-host Tracey Wanjiru also called it quits from the station.

In a lengthy, Instagram post, Wanjiru expressed gratitude towards the NTV Management, viewers and fans for always keeping her company for the 5 years she was living her dream of being on TV.

5 Years

“I interviewed so many Kenyan celebrities who I can now call friends, celebrated artists from all over the world, hosted events not only here but in other countries in the continent and I could keep going on and on but this is just to appreciate @ntvkenya and the entire #teenrepublikntv team for giving me an opportunity and for the learning experience. For the past 5 years I was literally living my dream. Things I only wished for when I was younger I experienced and did. I was fresh from high school and now half way through my 20’s I have gained so much experience I couldn’t be more grateful! Thank you to everyone who supported me and the show. Here’s to the next chapter of my life 🥂🎊” reads part of Tracey Wanjiru’s post.

She added “Wow 5 years flew by so so fast! I remember auditioning for Teen Republik only because I really needed a job so that I could start making money. Little did I know this really was my calling. God surely works in crazy ways. The day I found out that I’d be the new host on the show, I couldn’t believe it because they called me 3 months after the audition so I thought it was a prank. Years later, I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities, the highs the lows and overall the best experience of my life!

I’m very critical of myself and don’t really applaud myself much, but man I did some dope shit on the show with the baddest @martinkimathi_”.
