It’s not easy to manoeuvre a male-dominated field, but Phylis Maina is blazing as a female master of ceremony (MC). Female MCs are increasingly creating a niche for themselves in the world of events and entertainment.
As an MC, you are the face and voice of events, conferences, and other special occasions. You are the go-to person for setting the tone and atmosphere of the event. It is a great way to use your wit and charm to make sure that attendees have the best time possible.
With her professional attitude and enthusiasm, MC Phylis is bringing an edge to the stage that is hard to ignore. She recently won Kenya Wedding Awards as Best Female MC of the Year 2022/2023.
Besides that, she is a freelance voice-over artist and an actress. What started as a hobby became a career, one she says she doesn’t regret.
With her natural gift and flair for talking and her chronic desire to be unique from a tender age, she grabbed the opportunity and ran with it. She admits it can be challenging to navigate the complexities of the industry. From the difficulty of finding the proper gigs to the pressure of having to deliver a perfect performance, the journey can be daunting.
There is lack of support and recognition for women in the industry which makes it extremely hard for her but somehow she manages to cope with the situation.
