Mwakideu didn’t join any institution for journalistic training. He polished his acting skills after high school and appeared in plays in and out of Mombasa.

His major break came after he was asked to do an advert for Baraka fm. The work he did satisfied them in such a way that they decided to keep him.

He is thankful to Peter Musembi, the then Baraka FM news editor currently working at BBC, London. He is the one who noticed his talent and mentored him to what he is today.

Did you know that Alex Mwakideu went to Shimo La Tewa high school. He was later expelled following a dispute with the principal.
