Jalang’o bids farewell to Hot 96 with emotional posts

Comedian and radio show host Felix Odiwour, popularly known as Jalang’o, has called it quits at Hot 96 radio station.

In a series of Instagram posts, the celebrated comedian announced that he has left the station, but fell short of stating why and where he is heading to.

“Last Friday was my last day at @hot96fmkenya I must say it’s been a ride and a half… 1 year 4 amazing months of hard work and delivery,” Jalang’o wrote.

The comedian also paid glowing tribute to his bosses at the radio station, with special mention to veteran broadcasters Fred Afune and Waruru Wachira.

“I want to take this special opportunity to thank The entire Family of Royal media especially The hot 96 Team. Very special mention to Fred Afune who believed in me and assured me that this will work even when no one believed,” he wrote.

He also had very nice words for his co-host in the station’s breakfast show, award-winning journalist Jeff Koinange.
