Adelle rebrands after landing morning show job – PHOTOS

Popular radio personality Adelle Onyango has rebranded with a series of edgy publicity photos.

At 27-years-old, Adelle is currently the youngest personality to host a major morning show, a role traditionally reserved for veteran radio personalities.

She was promoted to host Kiss 100’s Big Breakfast show in early July.

“If I was to define the new look Adelle, the words I would use are, strength, liberated, self-aware. Not to say that that wasn’t who I was before. I think right now I’m more unapologetic about being my true and genuine self,” Adelle said.

 

The charismatic radio star admits that taking on one of Kenya’s biggest show on radio is no mean feat.

“I love my job and everything that comes with it. I don’t look at it as the biggest show in Kenya but my opportunity to change my country and the world. And also an avenue to influence young Kenyans, to get them believing in themselves again. So to me this platform is such a deep calling and blessing.”

Adelle’s journey has been a turbulent one, having survived rape and the death of her mother.

“I own each and every one of my experiences because I’ve gotten to the point where I understand why I went through them and I’m humble enough to learn from them. In 2008 I unfortunately got raped and I was in a dark place for a long time after that. I thought I was broken. But with support from my family, I pushed through that.

“I lost my mum and that broke me. Life as I knew it will never be the same but again I am letting the experience shape me for better. I conquered and I want my life story to inspire someone else to be a conqueror.”
