The Citizen TV Show
2014 marked the beginning of the end of Teacher Wanjiku’s flourishing career in TV comedy. This was after Citizen TV offered her a classroom show at their station and she grabbed the opportunity despite her team having some reservations.
About a week after the first episode aired, Citizen TV quickly canned the show over poor ratings.
“I really thought I got it right but it was a total flop,” Wanjiku admitted.
For 4 years she tried making a comeback and at some point in 2018, a glimmer of hope shone in the horizon. Today, Teacher Wanjiku is back to where she once was, with some wise words for those experiencing a setback.
"Life has to go on no matter what you have gone through in your career. Go back to the drawing board until you get it right,” she advised.
