Adelle Onyango

Adelle Onyango is a renowned media personality, who shot up to prominence following a stellar career stint as a radio presenter.

Despite being on top of her game, Adelle quit radio in 2019 to start her own media company, Legally Clueless Africa that birthed her podcast.

The momentum continued into early 2023 when the podcast pioneer partnered with Trace FM, marking a groundbreaking achievement as the first East African to host a syndicated podcast.

Beyond her podcasting achievements, she has also contributed a lot to society through the Adelle Onyango Initiative. 

Dedicated to empowering Kenyan youth for success in employment or entrepreneurship, the initiative extends crucial psycho-social support to African women who have overcome sexual abuse.

Her impact transcends borders, as evidenced by her global showcase at the prestigious Moth Mainstage in New York in  2019.

Onyango made a name for herself at Radio Africa’s Kiss 100 where she excelled earning several awards.

Her career in the radio industry spanned over 10 years. She began her career as a radio show host for 1FM. 

She later joined Kiss FM as a morning show host before taking over prime-time duty.
