Willis Raburu was trending a while back after rumors hit the country that he was quitting 10 over 10.
This was before his co-host Joey Muthengi left the show. Rumors had started circulating that he will be leaving Citizen to join NTV under The Trend.
On getting Willis to comment on the matter, he told KISS100 he has no comment on the matter and months after, Willis Raburu is still a news anchor at Citizen and the host of 10 over 10.
He had an interview with Kalekye on her weekly show, Talk Central saying he did not leave because of loyalty to his bosses and the brand he wants to build.
WHAT HAPPENED WAS, THERE WAS SOME OFFERS THAT WERE MADE BUT YOU KNOW THAT AM SO INTO CITIZEN, ROYAL MEDIA, SK MACHARIA AND YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MEDIA IS, THERE IS SUCH A RUSH, THEY OFFER YOU MONEY, THROW FIGURES BUT IF IT’S NOT GOING THE DIRECTION OF YOUR BRAND, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY THE ENVIRONMENT WHERE YOU ARE WORKING IS ALSO IMPORTANT, I HAD TO TALK TO MY BOSSES TO UNDERSTAND IF THE MOVE WAS OKAY.
Willis’ biggest fear was running for the big offers then going into a job that will eventually frustrate you and so after consultation, he decided to stay in Citizen.
I DIDN’T WANT TO MAKE A MISTAKE BECAUSE YOU CAN JUMP SHIP THEN IT GOES WRONG, THE DIRECTION OF WHAT THEY WERE OFFERING WAS NOT REALLY WHAT AM DOING, I HAVE DONE IT BEFORE SO I JUST WENT THERE AND HAD A CONVERSATION AND I DECIDED TO STAY.
Recently, Raburu showered Jeff Koinange with praise for advising him how to survive in the competitive TV industry.
We have seen him trying to make a few improvements in his life. Willis is a lover of the gym and this year he promises to be consistent.
