Maria is arguably the best local television show in Kenya right now. The drama series has been keeping Kenyans entertained during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show which airs every weekday from 7:30 pm to 8 pm, has since gotten a mass following with more emphasis put on the two stars Luwi and Maria.
Maria, acted by Yasmin Said, is the main character in the TV series created by Citizen TV’s news anchors Rashid Abdalla and Lulu Hassan. What people may not know about her is that Yasmin is just fresh from high school.
She sat for her KCSE examinations recently from Ribe Girls’ High School in Kilifi County. Born in Kilifi County in 2000, Yasmin is a staunch Muslim and values the religion’s doctrines.
Unlike her role in the tv show, she has never lived in the slums which shows her excellent acting skills at a young age.
While she is yet to join campus, she desires to pursue Film and TV or being a journalist.
