“The journey is going up from here…but a small break from TV. I would like to say that I appreciate the support that I got, I have grown a lot by being at Nation Media Group,” Azeezah said.
Azeezah has always been touted as a future star and house hold name in the media industry, but her initial ambition at her then tender age was to be a doctor while she was young. Something which could have been possible since she achieved a grade A plain in her KCSE exams.
Azeezah enrolled at the university of Nairobi to pursue a medical degree but later changed her major to journalism and media studies.
However the new resort was somehow unsuccessful to study through government sponsorship so she opted for self sponsorship .
Azeezah has often told her fans she struggles with social anxiety and that she decided to bury herself in books in the hope of pursuing a medical or aviation career.
“At this point I just stay at home when i’m not at work.” She said in a past interview.
Azeezah began her career at campus radio, an online radio station where she hosted a 1 hour political show. After a month she accepted a job as a content curator at what’s Up studios an online TV station in Lavington. She later joined MStar another online radio station shortly before it closed down.

She left Ebru after successfully landing a job on NRG radio as host for the NRGetic show just for a couple of months before she took on the job of TV host at Nation Media Group.
The host quitting Nation Media Services was never an alarm till now. A reliable source confirmed that Azeezah would never quit her job without a plan B. This only, means that Azeezah already had a deal with Royal Media Services before quitting.
