She also has another show on Sunday from 10am on Gukena FM.

“Finally back on air!!!,” she captioned a picture of her and her co-host.

Auntie Jemimah lost her daughter on September 29 and asked for a break to mourn her loss.

“On 29:9:21, my girl arrived at 34 weeks, sleeping. I held her in my arms and said goodbye. I am broken, oh so broken that there was nothing I could do to bring her back to life. I therefore will be taking a sabbatical to mourn my Nduta the best way I know how and for as long as it takes. Thank you for the love and support. Auntie will be back,” she explained in a message that also announced the loss.

She took a break from social media during the team and resurfaced last week.

Her funny skits, which she does in Kikuyu have earned her hundreds of thousands of followers on YouTube and social media.

In August as she was celebrating her 32nd birthday, Auntie Jemimah surprised her fans with news of her pregnancy, by sharing a photo capturing her baby bump, stating that’s she is excited about the new chapter in her life.

“32. New chapter. New Title” wrote Auntie Jemimah.
