I have never tarmacked looking for a job – Dennis Okari narrates his career journey

NTV news anchor Dennis Okari has revealed that he has never tarmacked for a job in his entire life.

In a recent interview dubbed Quickfire Friday with the TV station, the Special Features editor stated that jobs always go looking for him. He narrated that his first job was at KBC Metro TV where he worked with a producer called Bwana Onguso whom they considered their Kenyan Tyler Perry.

He stated that Onguso was the producer of programs such as Tausi, Tahamaki and other epic Swahili programs. He revealed that he worked as a video editor, producer, and also as a reporter. He went on to narrate that after working for KBC Metro TV, he crossed over to TBN Family Media before leaving for Mombasa to work with Bahari FM.

He explained that he wanted to learn Swahili because his Swahili was so bad and when he came back to Nairobi, he was to work for Radio Maisha but he was hired for the Broadcast Division (TV).

“So that was the first time on KTN, then I went to Radio Africa then came to Nation Media Group. I was then poached by the BBC, went worked in the UK then came back to Nation Media Group,” he narrated.

Okari revealed that he left BBC because he felt that he was not being given the platform he needed to tell the stories that he wanted to tell. He pointed out that there were a lot of people working for the international media house hence there was no space to tell the African stories as they should be.

He also mentioned that family was the second factor that made him quit the job as the traveling was too much and he never enjoyed it. He, however, thanked the media house since he learned a lot for the short time he was there.

He revealed that he also produced while at KBC for Award-winning talented American-based Kenyan actress Lupita Nyo’ngo when she was starting out. He mentioned that he used to go through her scripts, prepare her for studio and frame her.

He stated that seeing where she is now was a big thing. He stated that he was not sure if the Wakanda actress could remember him now since those days, they were really hustling to even to get clothes for her to wear on set.
