Shaffie Weru Joins Homeboyz Radio

  • Veteran Radio presenter Shaffie Weru, has now joined the Homeboyz Radio family as a programmes controller.

    Shaffie left Kiss FM alongside his co-host Adele Onyango back in June 2019, after 14 years at the station.

    Homeboyz stating that he had a wealth of experience on air.

    "He will be able to work with the team to improve our programming, work on creative ideas with the team to bring out the culture of hip hop in everything we do. We gave him a warm welcome, and look forward to an improved station sound and programming to make HBR the number one Hip Hop Radio Station in Kenya," Somoina revealed.
