Odhiambo announced that he would join an English station in the coming days. However, insiders privy to his next move told Viral Tea that he will join Royal Media Services' Hot 96.

Odhiambo has also been replaced by former Milele FM head of radio Titi Nagwala.

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, will be filling his shoes at Radio Maisha. Nagwala, an engineer by profession, has been absent for nearly three years after exiting Milele FM.

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.
