  • Former Classic FM radio presenter Ciku Muiruri on Sunday, August 23, announced her return back to radio after a six-year break.

    Muiruri, however, kept her fans guessing her next work destination as she posted a challenge where the first 20 correct answers on what new station she was joining would earn one a free copy of her controversial book.

    "I am back on radio this week!!! From Monday, August 24, 2020. Can you guess which station I will be presenting on? First correct 20 answers get a free copy of my book," she posted on Twitter.

    "All other correct answers get #LoveisButADream at a REDUCED price of 700/- (down from 990/-)," posted Muiruri on her social media handles.

    Efforts to gather more details about her show were unsuccessful as calls by Kenyans.co.ke went unanswered with no response offered at the time of publishing this article.

    She, however, dropped a hint on her next move revealing that the station she is about to join has 'amazing music' which was in line with how she defined herself as 'always being different'. 

    A number of fans tipped her for a return to Classic FM or Nation FM which was previously known as Easy FM.

    The last time Ciku was on radio was when she worked with Classic FM, six years ago, for her popular show dubbed Busted that was aimed at catching wayward lovers.

    The radio queen announced her resignation from Classic FM back in December 2013 and noted that she was done with radio presenting.

    Ciku started out her career in radio at Capital FM with the Love Lights Show then later moved to Kiss FM under the Radio Africa Group.

    She then ventured into writing and had column at Pulse Magazine which appeared every Friday on the Standard Newspaper.

    After two year break, Ciku returned to radio with Easy FM but moved to Classic FM back in 2010 to take up the position of Assistant Programme Controller.

    Muiruri had a spat with another former Nation Media Group journalist with a interestingly near-similar name, Ciru Muiruki now at BBC Africa back in 2019 after Ciku accused the latter of using her name to gain fame.
