Zeddy is a Kenyan comedian, MC and a radio personality. When still very young she noticed her talent to make people laugh, and along her life decided to take this career path. She was encouraged to participate on The Churchill Show, and even though she worked hard, she never had a chance to perform on stage. But things started looking positive, once when she volunteered during a segment of the show, where anyone in the audience who thinks he or she is funny is invited to perform and then the winners are awarded. Zainabu Zeddy was the only lady against three guys and was declared the winner. Three weeks later she got her first show on The Churchill Show.
