Among those appointed as consuls general is a popular businessman and artist, Tomas Kwaka ‘Big Ted’. He will now serve as Consul General of the Kenyan Consulate in Los Angeles, California, United States.

In a reflective piece from State House on Saturday, Big Ted shared some personal beliefs that have seen his career progress as a DJ, MC, events professional, State House deputy director for branding and events. , and now Consul General in Los Angeles.

“I cling to the belief that your experience should be my lesson, but your experience should not be mine! When they tell you it can’t be done, that doesn’t mean it can’t be done for you! Most likely for them”, he encouraged his followers.

In a later post on his personal blog, Big Ted added: “I am learning that once you step out into the great abyss of darkness, two things happen, either your eyes close in despair at the darkness life may contain, or your eyes adjust to the darkness and you start seeing and appreciating things you’ve never seen before, it’s like gazing at the stars on a clear night in Africa.”
