  • Popular radio presenter Jalang'o, real name Felix Odiwuor, on Monday, July 13 hosted his first radio show since leaving Mediamax-owned Milele FM in June.

    Jalang'o was in his element as he hosted the morning show on Kiss FM, Kamene and Jalas, alongside Kamene Goro.

    Before announcing his exit from Milele FM on June 23, Jalang'o had been hosting Milele Breakfast alongside Alex Mwakideu.

    Listening to the show, one would be forgiven for thinking Jalang'o had been at the station for years, as he used his trademark humour in hilarious conversations with his co-host.

    It was Jalango's second debut on Kiss FM, having hosted a show alongside Caroline Mutoko in the early days of his career.

    Among those who voiced their excitement at the presenter and comedian's return to radio were celebrities including singers Bahati, Masauti and Nadia Mukami, media personality Betty Kyallo and comedians Eric Omondi and Daniel 'Churchill' Ndambuki.

    Ndambuki, who also hosts a morning show on Classic alongside Maina Kageni, told Jalang'o in a recorded message to make the most of his 'Take 2' at Kiss FM.

    Betty urged him to continue entertaining Kenyans and making them laugh, just as he had done for many years.

    Jalang'o left Mediamax at a time when the company was embroiled in disputes with its employees over proposed wage cuts due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    He quickly found success online, however, with his Youtube channel Jalang'o TV racking up more than 100,000 subscribers in under a month.

    Other than the flagship talk-show Bonga na Jalas, the presenter had revealed plans to introduce other shows including a cooking show and a fitness show hosted by his personal trainer.

    His return to the airwaves was met with excitement from fans who flooded social media with messages welcoming Jalang'o to Kiss FM.

    "It's really nice listening to the two of you. Welcome home," wrote one Kamwana on Twitter.

    "I was wondering when Jalang'o would be back we promised to move stations with him," stated one Jonte.

    "Indeed life is a journey. Welcome back home Jalas," shared another listener by the name Brian Saina.
