Ex Milele FM Radio host Jalang’o has responded after being accused of staging outgoing Kiss FM presenter Andrew Kibe’s firing.
The outspoken personality, speaking on Tuesday, June 30, on his popular Bonga na Jalas channel, sought to clarify that he had nothing to do with the exit.
Jalang’o without ruling out the likelihood that he could take up a spot at the Radio Africa owned station noted that Kibe was his friend and that the latter exited the show on his own volition.
“I am trending at number one today. The reason why, Andrew Kibe who is a very close friend of mine, has resigned. How I am trending is because I caused Andrew’s firing. so sad.
“I was asleep and when I woke up, I found myself trending at number one. I have just spoken to him and he told me he disagreed with the station,” he stated.
“Kiss FM is where I started. Guys, I did not know Andrew had left the station. Every other person claiming I can’t take over Kiss FM, that is where I started,” Jalang’o added.
As stated by a local blog Kibe confirmed that Tuesday was his last day at the station after he tendered his resignation three months ago.
Kibe who is known for his hard-hitting advice stated that he had a great run at the station and would now focus on his brand on digital platforms.
Kibe’s fans trooped to twitter after announcing his exit, blaming Jalang’o of being behind his ouster with the aim of landing the spot.
Some went as far as to claim that he could not level up with the English standards that Kiss FM has meted on its stars and is known for countrywide.
While some felt the funnyman was the luckiest chap on earth for presumably landing a job just days after resigning from his old one, there were those who believed the chemistry with Kamene Goro was not going to work.
There were some fans who claimed Jalang’o was better suited to a Swahili radio show as compared to Kiss 100 where English is the norm.
The speculations were fired by Jalang’o’s initial confirmation that he was set to reunite with his colleagues at Radio Africa which owns Radio Jambo, Kiss FM and Classic 105.
Earlier Jalang’o had hinted that he might end up on Waiyaki Way, after a meeting with Patrick Quarcoo (Radio Africa CEO).
