At Radio Maisha, Nick will be getting into the shoes of Felix Odiwuor, alias Jalang’o, who left the Standard Group-owned Kiswahili radio station to join Hot 96, which is run by Royal Media Services.
This are clearly big shoes if Radio Maisha’s listeners’ reaction to Jalang’o’s exit is anything to go by.
Jalang’o, a comedian and events organizer, together with co-presenter Alex Mwakideo, had captured a huge following with his pithy and often outrageous approach to issues, often laced with humour and hilarious punchlines. At Hot 96, he is co-presenting with radio personality Jeff Koinange.

Nick will have work quickly to build chemistry with Mwakideo, if he will be paired with him, and offer something that will appease Radio Maisha audience, which comprises mostly rural and the less sophisticated urban listeners.
Standard Group had initially approached Kazungu Matano aka Captain Otoyo Sibuor alias Awinja, who co-presents the morning show on Milele FM, to replace Jalang’o on the show but did not reach a deal.
