    Tande, a gifted media personality, scooped the Best Actress at the 2022 Kalasha Awards due to her keen sense of detail and role.

    However, unknown to many, the actress passed the mantle of her lead role to former Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) presenter Mbeki Mwalimu. 

    Mwalimu has acted in numerous roles including the local drama show Tabasamu, and drama series Selina and also made cameo appearances in hit shows such as Citizen TV’s Tahidi High

    During a past interview, Mwalimu detailed how she landed a role as a presenter for KBC’s show Good Morning Kenya

    “I hosted Good morning Kenya which is such a coincidence as producer Mary Mwikali who used to be on the radio on KBC asked me to look for people to host a show, a reality show called The Ultimate Choir.”

    “She, however, asked me to try it and during auditions, they debated whether I do the reality show or Good Morning Kenya. Then I ended up clinching both roles,” she stated during an interview at Switch TV. 

    After switching from KBC, she delved back into her passion for theatre and birthed an idea in 2018 for a professional theater performance organization christened Back to Basics

    “Art is one of the most powerful ways of passing communication so when you do it artistically, people will remember. I wanted real authentic stories, real-life experiences,” she stated. 

    Owing to her roles in many films, Mwalimu scooped the best theater director award in 2018 at the Sanaa Awards.
