The media personality announced that he will soon be sharing numerous videos inside his posh ride.

“I apologize in advance for all the incoming panoramic sunroof videos. Ok, bye-bye.”

The Audi A4 is a gift he got himself “for what’s been such a year. Super grateful, and excited for what’s ahead.”

The renowned journalist is known to make big moves on his birthdays. Last year he announced his exit from BBC, on his birthday. 

In a post shared across his social media handles on August 30, the multimedia journalist stated that he was leaving BBC after a three-year stint.

Ndirangu said his exit from the international media house was to take up a new challenge but did not reveal specifics. 

“One of the most fun things I ever did in life was making and breaking news at the BBC. Time for a new journey,” the post read in part.
