Lulu Hassan was born to a Kikuyu mother and a Somali father. She is the eldest of her to sister. Her mother died in 2007, and she took the responsibility of taking care of the children and managing her mother's real estate properties.
She was earning slightly over Ksh 300,000 and was even earning Ksh 100,000 in allowances.
Lulu Hassan attended Aga Khan Academy in Mombasa for her High School Education. She later trained as a cabin crew hostess, human resource manager, and ticketing officer at Salrene Travel Operations College.
When she landed a radio job in Mombasa, she thought it would be good to have journalism skills. So she went back to school and studied Communication and Journalism.
Back in 2008, Lulu was a news presenter at Radio Salaam in Mombasa. Interestingly, she used to read the news in English and not Swahili.When she was still a presenter at Radio Salaam in 2008, a KTN cameraman informed her there was a crisis at KTN. Two of KTN’s Swahili anchors were going for maternity leave, and they needed someone to step in. The cameraman asked her to try her luck. Being a risk-taker, she went for a screen test, and she was hired.
When Lulu tied the knot with Rashid, her neighbors and friends came in large numbers to celebrate their union.
“When Rashid and I wedded, most guests were people whom I did not know. Out of love, they came in large numbers to celebrate my big day,” tells Lulu.
Since her late mother was not there to ‘give her away’ as is customary, her neighbors and friends stepped in. For this reason, the soft-spoken newsreader describes Kenyans as loving and caring people.
