Dorea is a God-fearing, hardworking, focused, a go-getter and always self-motivated while Maggie is a reserved pretender who is so desperate.

I grew up in Kahawa west. I did my journalism and mass communication diploma at Daystar University and I’m planning to go back to school and pursue a degree. I am the firstborn in a family of three and both my parents are pastors.
I always wanted to be a singer because of the influence of participating in a church choir.
4.) Do you get stalkers due to fame? What has been your biggest challenge in playing Maggy?
Stalkers are always there actually, as a pretty lady, by now I am used to it. My biggest challenge has been meeting people who are full of hatred. They think I am cold-hearted and a husband snatcher. They advise me against it.
