Joyce Maina Biography, Age, Education, Career and Relationship With Kwalanda

By Prudence Minayo

Joyce Maina is a presenter at Switch TV who co-hosts Chatspot alongside Kush Tracey and  Nana Owiti. She got the job after a former producer of the show called her asking if she’d like to be a guest host for the show. The show takes a look at trending topics on social media, as well as interviewing celebrities.

Apart from being a TV host, Joyce Maina is also an actor, a content creator and a commercial model. She was nominated for Best Actress in a feature film for Aisha at the Kalasha Awards 2017.  

Age and background

She was born on 9th September in Karen Hospital, Nairobi. Her family lived in Eastlands before relocating to Lang’ata. She has a younger brother and lost her dad in an accident a number of years ago. 


She first attended high school at St. Lucy Kiriri before moving to Serare School in Ngong. After high school, she proceeded to African Nazarene University for a Bachelor’s degree in International Business Management.


She got her first taste of acting at the age of 11 when she took part in a school play. In university, her friends introduced her to commercial modelling. At the age of 19, she began doing commercial modelling.

The model agency she worked with thought she was a very good actress. What followed was a series of auditions for various roles. For two years, she attended auditions without being casted in a single drama. She even auditioned for MTV Shuga more than once. At some point, she thought of quitting but first she auditioned for a role in Sumu la Penzi. Joyce had decided it would be her last and as luck would have it she got in. Not only did she get to act in the romantic drama series, but she also became a main cast. 

Joyce also got the chance to play Collete on the award winning drama series Selina. She has also been featured in other films, such as Disconnect, Neophobia, Monica and Aisha. 

Engagement and breakup 

The show host was in a relationship with fellow Switch TV media personality Tony Kwalanda. Tony proposed to her during the Switch TV anniversary party late last year and she said yes. The two later went their separate ways.

Their breakup came as a shock to many fans and Joyce later said she’d never post her man on social media again.

“I have posted my man on social media and I am never going to do it again I took my pictures down but he still has my pictures I don’t know why. Most of mine were Insta Stories and they disappeared, by the time I was joining Switch TV I didn’t know people cared about my life like that,” she said.  

She added that her relationship with Kwalanda was non toxic unlike others she had before.
