Jalang’o speaks out on Jeff Koinange’s ‘stupid’ slur

Comedian and radio show host Felix Odiwour, popularly known as Jalang’o has finally broken his silence following claims that he left Hot 96 station after a derogatory comment made against him by his co-host Jeff Koinange.

Jalang’o bade farewell to his listeners last week in a long emotional post he shared on his social media platform.

“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,” read part of his post.

The news was met with mixed reactions from his fans but what seemed to have shocked them more was a short video that emerged online that captures Koinange calling him stupid.

LEFT THE STATION

But Jalang’o has refuted the claims that this was the reason he left the station.

“I have received so many calls asking me why I left Hot 96 and why I parted ways with Jeff when the show was such an amazing gig and everything was just perfect. Now here NOT why I left! There is this story doing rounds that Jeff abused me or called me stupid and blogs have picked it and making everyone be live that it’s the reason why I left!” said Jalango.

He continued: “NO JEFF DID NOT CALL ME STUPID! What the blogs have done is pick a Part of our conversation and edited it to feed this lie! Jeff and I had and still do have the best relationship ever! Jeff actually knew that I was leaving and wished me well.”

I have received so many calls asking me why I left Hot 96 and why I parted ways with Jeff when the show was such an amazing gig and everything was just perfect..Now here NOT why I left! There is this story doing rounds that Jeff abused me or called me stupid and blogs have picked it and making everyone be live that it's the reason why I left! NO JEFF DID NOT CALL ME STUPID! What the blogs have done is pick a Part of our conversation and edited it to feed this lie! Jeff and I had and still do have the best relationship ever! Jeff actually knew that I was leaving and wished me well…I have since called Jeff and we had the best conversation and the show must and will go on without me Hot 96 is a big brand. So let no one lie to you that Jeff abused me…he would never do that because of the respect we have for each other. @koinangeJeff again I thank you for the giving me a chance to work with you each and everyday was a movie…our paths will cross again! Much love Bro. #JeffandJalas
