Lulu Hassan on challenges of working close with her husband


TV news anchor Lulu Hassan has opened up on everyday challenges she faces while reading news together with her husband Rashid Abdallah at Citizen TV.

Speaking to Millard Ayo last weekend Lulu revealed that being in the spotlight puts her and her husband in a tight position, as much is expected of them.

According to the Nipashe wikendi co-host, fans normally keep close tabs at them during live broadcast’s in order to tell if they had a fight or they are happy in their marriage.

“Changamoto zipo wakati tunaposoma habari, kila mtu anawaangalia na jicho la tatu, anataka kujua hawa kweli leo wamekosana. Wakati mwingi tunasoma taarifa za huzuni back to back, huwezi smile wakati huo so unapata mtu anasema ‘aah! hawa leo kweli hawajapatana, wamekosana leo’,” Lulu said.

She further went on to disclose that contrary to what many viewers believe, she is not always with her husband every day at work despite them working together.

“Ratiba yetu ni tofauti, mbali na kwamba Jumamosi na Jumapili tupo pamoja studio but during the week huwa hatuko pamoja,” Lulu said.

The duo became the first couple to read news together after Rashid decamped from NTV in June 2018, to join his wife at the Dennis Pritt Road owned media station.

The two got married in 2009 and have three children.
