Media personality Shaffie Weru made a comeback to the screen after taking a two-year break since he was fired from his radio job.
Hyping his new show, the renowned radio presenter who has been off-mic announced that his new show will premier on Monday, January 30.
In a video seen by Kenyans.co.ke, Shaffie was seen juxtaposed with his alter ego, the Reverend, in a show of self-praise claiming that needed no other personality to make his show greater.
The show dubbed Shafted will cover major interviews with public figures who ‘shafted’ themselves through their actions, controversial behaviour, or scandals that led to their downfall.
“Have you been Shafted? Have you Shafted Yourself? Who better than Shaffie Weru in telling it like it is,” he stated as he hyped the new show.
He further added that he believed in himself and for the long time he had worked in radio, was in a position to endure any type of hardship.
“I understand myself and I can’t lie to myself. I had worked in radio for so long, I can persevere for days. It has been two years of soul searching, do you know how many people have been calling me to interview me?
This is just me. Since I was fired I have done only one interview” he noted.
During an interview with Nation Media concerning the show, he explained that he had derived the name Shafted from his name but also that the heart of the matter on public falls from grace.
“Shafted explores if they deserved their public disgrace or were misunderstood and canceled for no reason. There are three sides to every story,” he added.
He was fired on March 27 2021 alongside his co-host Neville Musya and a popular Disc-jockey Joseph Munoru alias Dj Joe Mfalme over Gender-based violence utterances.
The remarks made the Communications Authority of Kenya crack the whip on Homeboyz Radio.
Radio Africa Group, the parent company to Homeboyz radio where he hosted the breakfast show, explained that the decision was reached after a comprehensive review of the comments made on the station’s morning show, adding that the topic in discussion was neither approved nor authorized by the management.
