Former Alfajiri TV host Serah Ndanu has landed a job with an international streaming service, Netflix.
The sassy 30-year-old quit her lucrative hosting job on Alfajiri at K24, a decision that lit up the blogs as fans tried to predict her next move.
Some argued that she had been poached another local Media Station while other couldn’t understand why she left the job.
Ndanu confirmed that she is starring in the adaptation of one of Arese Ugwu’s book on a show that is set to be aired on Netflix.
“Everything is falling into place as planned, and my content is about to go on air. I have been working on a drama and an educative youth show, which puts the reality of all things youth into perspective. It has taken me three years to put this out. I have a team that has been working on this and the most exciting thing is that the cast is amazing. It is something as good as what you watch on Netflix,”

“I enjoyed Alfajiri, even though at first I was a bit scared about hosting a live TV show. I had a big following and I connected with fans. Sometimes I miss them. Besides, K24 is home,” she said in an interview.
Ndanu will be the second Kenyan to land a deal with Netflix. Renown Kenyan film producer and Spielworks Media CEO, Dorothy Ghettuba was appointed as Netflix Manager International Originals.
Ghettuba is the founder and CEO of the Nairobi-based Spielworks Media, an African production company launched in 2009. Her dream is to turn Spielworks Media into an African version of the American Universal Studios.
