Award-winning fashion and lifestyle blogger Sharon Mundia, otherwise known by her moniker This Is Ess, is less than a week from making her television debut.
The blogger, who also pens lifestyle articles on the Capital FM website, has joined the Nation Media Group staff and will be hosting a show on NTV. Dubbed ‘Living With Ess’, the lifestyle show is scheduled to premiere at the end of this month.
The mother of one will be replacing Kobi Kihara, who has since relocated to New York to pursue her fashion dream at the world-renown design school, The New School.
Kobi was the host of ‘Better Living’ since it’s inception in 2016.
Confirming This is Ess’s new gig, NTV head of television Justus Tharao explained that the revamped lifestyle 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 tell 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 Tharao.
At the same time, Mundia has expressed excitement over the exciting next step in her career and life.
