Controversial media personality Andrew Kibe has finally opened up on his life as a man of God and as a trainee pastor.

Kibe, who is known for his care-free opinions that are often filled with vulgarity, reacted after photos surfaced online showing him praying and preaching among prominent pastors. 

He said he had wanted to become a pastor under the tutelage of among others, his friend Pastor Robert Burale.

The Kiss FM presenter admitted that despite his plans to become the “greatest pastor that ever lived”, he failed to qualify because he was too outspoken.

He said he was not good enough and hence was not promoted to become a pastor, adding that the church pastors did not like his outspoken personality.

Trip to India

Asked what led him to change from a Christian preacher to a man with seemingly extreme anti-Christian beliefs, he said the transition happened while on a working trip in India.

Kibe said spending several years in India changed his views on religion and decided to “be real”.

The radio presenter said unlike, Christians, he found Indians to be good and humble, and admired the fact that the did not bombard anyone with their religion - an experience that changed his life.

When he returned to Kenya in 2016, Kibe was a changed man and started a Facebook video column where he spewed his opinions – mostly about women and alcohol.

He has since amassed a large audience from fans who find his view “real” and which helped him transition to radio, starting out at NRG radio and now heading to Kiss FM.
