8 INTERESTING SECRETS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT CITIZEN TV'S LULU HASSAN, NUMBER 4 IS QUITE SURPRISING
That is the warm welcome viewers get every weekend on Citizen TV’s 7 pm Swahili bulletin from the soft-spoken Lulu Khadija Hassan.
Lulu, who hosts Nipashe Wikendi with Kanze Dena, has had a long journey to get to where she is today. Earlier this week she sat down with Citizen Digital and shared her life story. Here are eight things you probably did not know about her:
1.She’s got Seychellois roots
Lulu, who is the first born in a family of three girls, grew up in Mombasa.
“Being the first born, I did not face any hardships while growing up; I was taken to one of the best schools in Mombasa – Aga Khan Academy,” she said.
Her mother, Mariam Abu, passed away in 2007 after being unwell, and Lulu had to take care of her two younger sisters.
“It wasn’t difficult taking my sisters to school since mum left us with some wealth. She had a real estate business which I began managing upon her demise. I’d been helping earlier, so it was not difficult to take over,” revealed Lulu.
Contrary to common belief, she’s not Somali. Her late mother had both Seychellois and Kikuyu roots, and father too was of Seychellois descent.
