Teen Republic show host quits

NTV’s Teens Republic host Tracy Wanjiru has quit the show after five years.

On Saturday during a live recording, the sultry host surprised her viewers with the news and thanked her team for making the show a seamless ride noting that she joined while still a teen.

“So, today is my last day here with the team on Teen Republik. It has been a great five years on the show but today marks the end of a beautiful journey with such a great team. It is quite unfortunate but moving to new things,” she said.

Her co-host Kimani praised her revealing that over five years, the duo had formed strong friendship chemistry both on the show as well as off.

“It has been so long since I met Tracy and she has literally been one of my best friends. We have grown tremendously. We started this show as kids and now we have grown. All the best to your new season Tracy because from here on, I believe the experience you have gained in elevation. You are only going to get better,” said Kimani.

Wanjiru did not reveal any details of what her next move will be only saying that she was going to be great.

The popular media personality was presented with a cake by her colleagues who also played for her a video montage of her initial debut on the popular teen music show.

“Thank you so much for all the love throughout the years. I love you so much. Teen Republik is always going to be home,” she signed off.

She has had a long-running career in media and entertainment and was among a team of four that hosted the now-defunct Hits Not Homework show on Capital FM after it folded in March 2019.
