Joey Muthengi has quit her job at Royal Media Services owned tv station Citizen TV.
The host of ‘Day Break’ and ‘10 over 10′ handed in her resignation on Wednesday after she was summoned for disciplinary action.
Trouble for Muthengi started when she did an advertisement with betting company Betin yet RMS has its own, Shabiki.
“The thinking was that she is a Citizen TV brand and should not be promoting a rival company,” explained another source, who requested anonymity.
The presenter was recently welcomed as Betin brand ambassador after signing a deal that reportedly earned her a six-figure amount.
Earlier in the year, she spent time in Italy shooting adverts with Kenyan footballer McDonald Mariga.
The ads have been running on local and continental TV stations. Muthengi is reportedly leaving soon to Italy for another shoot, our source adds.
Mariga signed a reported Sh8 million year-long deal with Betin in 2017 to feature in the firm’s adverts.
Muthengi is a media personality and actress and her entry into the Kenyan media industry came through being a radio personality on 98.4 Capital FM from 2009-2013 where she hosted and produced the wildly popular youth show ‘Hits Not Homework’.
