Top fashion and lifestyle blogger ‘This is Ess’ joins NTV

Award-winning fashion and lifestyle blogger Sharon Mundia, popularly known as ‘This is Ess’, has joined the Nation Media Group family and she will be hosting her own show on NTV which will premier by the end of the month.

Ms Mundia, who has been blogging for several years now in what started out as a fun hobby, has turned it into a great passion for herself.

The mother of one will be taking over from Kobi Kihara who is on a sabbatical and was the host of Better Living since it was launched in 2016.

NTV head of television Justus Tharao explained that the revamped lifestyle TV show is a guide to living a life inspired by dreams and passion that expands the boundaries of horizons as it paves the way for dreams to happen and passions fulfilled.

“Through the show, This is Ess will bring out your inner beauty with shows that tells you what’s in and what’s out in matters fashion, how to keep yourself healthy inside and out and how to develop your potentials to the fullest,” said Mr Tharao.

He added that, the new NTV programming promises to deliver world-class entertainment that will let the viewers take a peek into the lives of fascinating characters in the real and the reel world.


At the same time Ms Mundia expressed optimism that she will inspire women of all ages by sharing her personal style and other bits of her life.

Speaking about her blog, she said, “What I’ve come to realise is that fashion isn’t just about being trendy and cute, it’s about expressing your character, building your confidence and ultimately celebrating yourself.”

The new host also said that she is scared of coming second.

“I almost always turn everything into a competition. When I was younger, especially in high school, I may have stepped on many people’s toes.”

In an interview with Daily Nation recently, she said that it was her good upbringing and doing her best in school and having respect for money that has seen her grounded in an age where women, especially socialites, post nude pictures to get their fifteen minutes of fame.

“I am not fixated on being obsessively rich but having a secure future. I set goals each year for my investments and blog,” she said.
