Popular Kenyan comedian and big media personality Felix Odiwour AKA Jalang’o has tendered his official resignation at Roya Media Services’ Hot 96 radio where he used to run the breakfast show alongside Jeff Koinange, Exposeke.com has now learnt.
As per the sources close to Hot 96 and Jalang’o, the comedian will be heading to Milele FM, a radio station said to have offered him irresistible mouth watering deal which he could not resist.
It is not yet clear when the comedian will first go on air at his new home radio but Exposeke.com can authoritatively report his move is a done deal.
Exposeke.com attempted to get in touch with Jalang’o for more details concerning the move but he could note be reached on phone.
His exit from Hot 96, a subsidiary of Royal Media Services, came quite as a surprise to thousands of his fans at the station who had not even gotten a good feel of him since he joined the station barely four months ago.
The comedian moved to Hot from Standard Group’s Radio Maisha in April 2018 where had gained much traction.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! Waking up a Year Wiser A year Older! Thank you to all of you who have held my hands in this journey…those who have always believed in me…those who have criticised me…those who love me…those who dont..Those who I have made proud and those that I have failed…Inspired…you all have a special place in my heart! Lets do this again! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Following his exit, Radio Maisha sought the services of Nick Odhiambo as his replacement to co-host alongside Alex Mwakideu.
However, Nick somewhat failed to fill Jalas’ big shoes forcing the station to invade Milele FM for Otoyo alias Awinja.
Well, it seems Milele FM have returned the favour by going for the top radio personality.
Jalang’o’s move to Milele FM came just days after the station invaded Radio Citizen and poached Francis Luchivya, comedian Wilbroda and Joyce Wagituro.
Word on the street is that Milele is also in talks with Mwakideu who the station is trying to rope in.
