Kenyans’ reactions moments after Larry Madowo quits NTV

Tough times for NTV

Larry Madowo is a household name in the media industry. He made a name for himself through The Trend which is a show that airs every Friday currently hosted by Amina Abdi.

Larry over the years gained unmatched prowess in the media industry and attracted viewers and fan base during his time as the host of The Trend.

On Thursday at 4pm, he announced officially through his twitter that he is leaving the Aga Khan owned media organization eliciting wide reactions from his 1.43M twitter followers.


His post read;

“I leave as I came: humbled & grateful. The job was one of the great honours of my life. Thanks to everyone who watched, and to Nation for the privilege of the opportunity. I’m proud of my amazing colleagues & everything we accomplished. Farewell, my friends. Stay woke”

Some reactions from his post were;

“Boss who now who is left at @NTV

We will miss you on our screensTrend well Mr TTT maker


All the best Larry . You are going to be even greater. Keep your head high. Thank you for gracing out TVs. Bless

You created Friday evening to late night for TV. i might not agree with you on everything but I Will always be grateful to you for showing that those who really want it will create it, even from nothing. All the best Larry.

The former Trend host’s absence was loudly felt after he suddenly disappeared from the screens before his big announcement.

Following his absence, a section of people predicted he was either fired or resigned which is yet to be confirmed.

His decision to leave NTV has come exactly a month after Linus Kaikai left the station. Reports have it that Linus was fired from the Aga Khan owned media after he defied the Editor-in-Chief Tom Mshindi's directive and proceeded to steam live proceedings of the NASA swearing-in on January 30.
