In an Instagram post, the station announced that it will launch their Hot Breakfast show under the new duo on Wednesday, June 21.

Media personality Nick Odhiambo will co-host a morning show at Royal Media Services’ Hot 96 alongside Citizen TV anchor and fellow media personality Jeff Koinange.

Odhiambo had teased on Tuesday, June 22 that he would host an English station in the coming days, but insiders in a past conversation with Viral Tea revealed that his next move was a stint at the Royal Media Services station. 

Odhiambo announced his exit from Standard Media Group’s Radio Maisha after four years of holding the fort at the radio station.

“Today’s my final rhumba show on air after 4 years at Radio Maisha! Did I ever think I’d switch to swahili radio? NOPE but the opportunity came and I took it. Transitioning back to English radio in a few days tupige sherehe leo buuuuuurrrdan is burrrdaaan,” he wrote on Tuesday, the day of his exit. 

Odhiambo joined Radio Maisha after working for ten years at Classic 105, hosting The Drive alongside Larry Asego. The presenter is also a part-time comedian and actor.

Titi Nagwala, a Rhumba enthusiast, filled his shoes at Radio Maisha. Nagwala, an engineer by profession, has been absent for nearly three years after exiting Milele FM , having been its Head of Radio. 

The former Radio Citizen host announced via his Instagram page that he will be hosting the Rhumba show on Radio Maisha, every Monday to Friday from 7 pm to 10 pm. 

“I took a sabbatical after exiting Milele FM and had planned to land another job in March 2020. However, I shelved my plans after the COVID-19 pandemic broke out.

“I also have been doing consultancy work for the past year. I believe I will be back in the media in a few months, as that is my passion and calling,” Nagwala told a local daily in May 2020.  

The self-proclaimed Mfalme wa Rhumba/Rhumba maestro has rocked the airwaves for nearly two decades, with his career beginning in 2004.
