"Today I celebrate an incredible working relationship and an even better friendship. Thank you partner @mark_masai for being my ride or die, on air, and off air, for 13 good years! Damn. Cheers to us.
But our 13 years of success isn't just down to you and I. Thank you to our viewers, fans, friends and family.
Most of all, thank you to ALL our colleagues, former and present @ntvkenya" she wrote then.
