In a lengthy social media post, Awinja recalled how Bukeko gave her a chance to act at the popular TV series.
“This Man, Charles Bukeko, #PapaShirandula, the first time he called me for the role #Awinja I remember I told him “No I am not good with accents but I know someone who can bring out the Luhya accent really well,” she recalled.
“I went ahead and gave him my friend’s number, Eh! a month later he called me saying “manze Vike I believe you can bring out this role really well, acha kufikiria accent sana kuja tufanye kazi,” so I went zile za Ah! acha niende tu I carry it as a challenge, and guys the rest is history.”
