Handsome, intelligent and a hard worker, he is not scared to speak his mind, very determined to be the best, believes that he has a lot more to do, you’d be surprised but Fareed Khimani gives credit to education, and just like Winston Churchill defined leadership, Fareed believes in going from failure to failure without loosing enthusiasm.

Kindly tell me alittle bit about your education back ground
Fareed many young people in Kenya want to venture into media but there is the ideology that you have to know someone so as to get into mainstream media,no matter your qualifications, what is your take on this?
not true at all…i mean i love to hear from aspiring radio/tv personalities and guys whow want to work in production…contact me anytime at email@example.com to chat….
Do you think Education is a major priority in this field of media, or is it that if you have the voice and face for it, then you can rock on and make it big in meida?
again, education is extremely important…but you will find that most guys working in this industry, worldwide, did not study this particular area…
So between the three, acting, being a radio and television host , which one is it that you love most?
i just love all of them…i learn something new pretty much everyday…doing drama with mnet’s “Changes” was great, mainly because I have never done drama before, so that was amazing to see how drama is produced and to work with such a fabulous team…
