Kenya: Everyone Wanted a Piece of Betty Kyallo, and She Obliged

KTN news anchor, Betty Kyallo on Friday night surprised her followers on Twitter by directly engaging them using the hashtag #TalkToBetty.

The ever bubbly presenter was happy to respond to all sorts of questions from her followers, regardless of how petty some of the queries were.

Betty responded to questions ranging from her marriage, love life, career and even to invitations for lunches and dinners from her fans, leading to speculations that her Twitter account had been hacked.

It all started when Betty accepted a dinner invitation from a tweep who goes by the handle CollinsKev.

Hi @BettyMKyallo you have good taste in food , you mind joining me for dinner at a restaurant of your choice next week Friday ?

But it wasn't just her 'ordinary' followers who had questions to ask. Some big names in the Kenyan entertainment industry soon jumped into the bandwagon.

DJ Joe Mfalme wanted to know when he will be invited as a guest on Betty's Friday Briefing news segment.
