About Ruhila’s Rara’s

Ruhila Adatia is a  journalist in Kenya who writes for The Star, presents on radio (East FM, Kiss 100 and X FM) and also hosts shows on Kiss TV and Africa Magic (DSTV).

Ruhila’s Rara’s is an extended arm of everything she does on and off air and print.

She covers entertainemnt news on the radio stations so the blog is an extension of that and her stories from The Star and Kiss TV.

Here is her first post On Ruhila’s Rara’s describing what she is about:


“So you might have read my Showtime News blog which was created more than a year ago that’s all about entertainment news.

That baby was created when I needed an outlet for entertainment dirt for my fabulous company, Radio Africa (Kiss 100, Kiss TV, East FM, X FM).

But as days turned into months, thanks to my talented sisters (Shina, Pinky and Farah) who all are writers, a fabulous journalist/writer named Javed Kana and my awesome editor at The Star-Mwangi Githahu’s constant encouragement in writing (and for getting my work published in The Star)my dormant muse was woken.

I write reviews-restaurants, films, music,books- and features for The Star and since i enjoyed writing so much I decided to post a couple of them here (after public demand).

Thank you for being a part of this blog, reading it and for bearing with my Rara’s (musings, or as my wonderful TV co-host says-Adatia-isms-LOL)”

    i am in nairobi working on a web page for nairobi.
    the site launches in may, and will cover 60 cities (all over the world) at launch, hopefully growing fast.
    I read your post on muthurwa market (Perfect…style of writing…energy everything)
    and wanted to see if you’d be interested porting some of your great pieces to our site.
    it doesn’t pay now. But on the launch in may, the concept is to give 70% of the advertising money to the content creators and locals themselves. That would mean a possibility of getting paid not just once…but forever for the articles…interesting for sure.

    the nairobi page will be up soon,
    but here is an example page for Buenos Aires

    it is rough, because it was started just a couple weeks ago…but you’ll see that it adds lots of new things to the idea of a city (sports, music, adventure etc)


    i hope it works out
