The longest-serving member of the Malkia Strikers squad has been appearing on billboards all across the country advertising the new betting firm.

Janet is the latest among Kenyan celebrities whose talents have been tapped by a betting firm. In September, Joey Muthengi was picked as the Betin Brand ambassador alongside former Harambee Stars midfielder McDonald Mariga who plays in Italy.

“New month, new bae..., who dis?! #Betin #ChezaNasi #SecureTheBag. We look good don't we @mariga77. Spotted in this month’s issue of #Msafiri Magazine. Thanks to @chefalimandhry for sharing. Have a safe flight,” said Joey Muthengi in her post.
