Award winning media personality, Amina Adbi, has been dominating the East African airwaves for close to 10 years. Amina has dabbled in all aspects of media and is a radio host, TV presenter, voice over artist, brand ambassador and a corporate and event MC. On top of that, Amina is also a mother and wife - some would go as far as describing her as, superwoman.

Amina has perfected the art of balancing motherhood and a booming career. She does it with such ease and is one of Kenya’s most entertaining media personalities and so we decided to list down a few reasons why we can’t help but love her.

Law Was Her First Love

Amina has worked and featured on almost every local TV station in Kenya and her voice has been on all major radio stations in the country. However, as hard as it is to believe she was never really that interested in the media industry. All through primary and into high school, she had set her sights on becoming a lawyer, however, that all changed wen she joined the Homeboyz Radio academy.

She Married Her Boss

In most organizations, the ultimate no-no is having relationships with fellow co-workers, let alone, the boss! However, for this outgoing personality, a few rules were not going to keep her away from finding the love of her life. Whilst working at Homeboyz Radio, Amina met DJ Rabar - who was her boss at the time and the rest is history. The couple went on to get married and later welcomed their son in 2014. 


Amina has always stood out from the crowd. Her personality and tenacious attitude not only got her her first radio presenting gig, but it has also opened more doors for the media personality. In 2020, Amina became the first East African to host the 7th Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) alongside Nigeria’s Ike Isakioduwa. Talk about making strides within the industry! 


When Amina is not gracing our TV screens, hosting events or entertaining us on the radio, this mama has admitted that she will definitely be found in the kitchen. Her love for cooking came from an early age and it has only been exacerbated by her son's love for her food.

Grass To Grace 

Although she lives a very lavish life, dressing in designer gowns, driving fancy cars and living in fancy houses, life has not always been that glamorous for the media personality. Contrary to popular belief, Amina’s story is one of humble beginnings as she has had to work her way to the top. She has often stated that the reason she works so hard is because she is the breadwinner in her family and she supports her parents and siblings.

Amina is a trailblazer in the Kenyan entertainment industry and we look forward to seeing her continue to conquer the world.
