Tamima Ibrahim bid adieu to KTN in 2017, 5 years after making her debut as a ‘Str8 Up’ host.

She moved to Ebru TV a relatively new station as the Channel Operations Manager. A move that was viewed as crazy by many people as KTN had so much to offer to her in term of career growth.

“Everyone thought I was mad! I had a good position and more opportunities for growth at KTN than Ebru TV but the later appealed to me. Ebru TV had a great team with great resources but some reason it had not picked up with the Kenyan audience. With my experience in the TV business, I was definitely up for the challenge,” she told Parents magazine.


In April 2018, she left Ebru to take up a job as the Head of Content and also the host of ‘Real Talk with Tamima’ at Switch TV.

She broke the good news with a post that read “Just Do it. Dreams don’t work unless you do #RealTalkwithTamima premieres on Monday 24th of September 8:30 pm on SwitchTV available on all signet set-top boxes.”
