Amina Abdi Rabar was on Friday night unveiled as the new host of NTV’s ‘The Trend’ show.

The sassy presenter first show was at the new Nairobi University Chandaria auditorium in front of a live audience.

Speaking to Nairobi News, head of television at NTV Justus Tharoa said that they wanted Amina to have a feel good welcome as she joined the team.

“We wanted her to feel welcome and that is why we unveiled her at a concert and not at our studios, but from next week she will be hosting the show right here in the studios.”

‘The Trend’ has since June been hosted by former Nation FM presenter Ciru Muriuki, Hot 96’s Cindi Ogana, Capital FM’s Anita Nderu, funnyman Dr King’ori and Njambi Koikai.

According to Mr Tharoa, the show will see a few new fresh looks with new segments which will be introduced.

Asked why they settled on her? He said, “Amina presents a new fresh air of breath in the entertainment and she has a 360 degree understanding of the entertainment industry. She is the new face of entertainment, from TV, radio to emcing and that is what NTV was looking for.”
