Why I suddenly left Kenya - Former KTN presenter Tero Mdee spills all

Tero Mdee is back to Kenya with some answers.

She later joined the ‘Velvet Room’ which she hosted on Monday-Thursday from 10:00 pm to 12 midnight and Str8 Up show every Monday to Friday on KTN.

But as she was at the peak of her career she suddenly up and left and shut down her Facebook and Twitter accounts as Instagram was not yet a thing.

Her fans and colleagues didn’t even know of her exit and the only person who knew of her exit was her boss John Rabar who thought she was off to study.


Her fans were left confused but she has finally explained her sudden exit 7 years later. This was during an interview on HBR’s ‘Ignition.’.

“I have been home in Tanzania. I went back home because I wanted to do something I was called to do for a while. God called me. It wasn’t easy, for 8 years this was the life (media life) I knew. It reached a point where I wasn’t happy. I would smile but I wasn’t really happy I wasn’t satisfied I was in a place of confusion and I had to make a choice.” She disclosed.

Tero now known as Nancy Hebron couldn’t say goodbye to her fans as it was heartbreaking but she had to leave. “I knew I had to go, I knew I had to say goodbye. After my last show, I shut down Facebook and I shut down Twitter”

Tero now a fully-fledged pastor also responded to claims that she had been brainwashed and initiated into a cult after she married her pastor husband.

“I didn’t join a cult, I wasn’t brainwashed. I accepted Christ and I started serving him and I love it. I wouldn’t change anything, it was the best decision ever.” A cheery Nancy said.


The singer who is currently on her ‘Taa ya Miguu Yangu’ Kenyan tour dashed any hopes of a secular comeback by saying that she is happy where she is. However she is open to hosting a syndicated Gospel show from Tanzania.
