He was the one to tell us what has been happening, how he has been feeling and how he is coping with his condition.

That came and went. Following Wednesday, July 29, it is not until the 9pm news when we heard his voice and we were utterly shaken. We were like, is this virus a joke or what exactly is it?

Only for it to turn out he was doing a home edition of his own show. Had everything set prior to and took up the show running. Same case as his Aug 5, JKL show that saw him do it from the comfort of his home library.

However, the following morning his second round of Covid-19 results came out and he tested negative – 17 days after he tested positive for the virus and he could not believe he had just beaten what he called “a monster”.

Couple of days later and he is back on set, Live, co-hosting the 6 am- 10 am breakfast show on Hot 96 with Professor Hamo; shaking hands, all excited and prepping up for the session.

Jeff however seemed a little beat weak and worn out from the virus as he announced:

We are baaack! 3 weeks!!! Twende kazi!

Well, that means he will be hosting tonight’s JKL show from the Citizen studios, where he last stood roughly 3 weeks ago. Let’s wait and see.

Seasoned TV journalist, Jeff Koinange

But either way, we are glad he overcame the battle.

His return was welcomed with mixed reactions from fans, some excited, others doubtful.

Willis Raburu reportedly throws wife out, moves in with another woman

It seems all is not well between Citizen TV news anchor Willis Raburu and his wife Mary Ngami Irungu.

According to Word Is, the couple that tied the knot on May 5, 2017, is now living separately after 10 over 10 presenter cheated.

A source who spoke to the publication revealed that the couple was living in Phenom Estate in Lang’ata but they have since vacated the house.

The source further claimed that Raburu is currently putting up with another woman in Nairobi’s Kileleshwa Estate. His wife on the other hand is living in a rental in Thindigua.

It is reported that the news anchor is the one who asked his wife to move out and he agreed to rent a house for Mary and paid two months deposit  after they divided household items.

In January this year the couple lost their daughter who they had christened Adana and it has left people speculating whether it is what caused problems between them.

A few days ago, Raburu was on a live-stream with Hot 96 presenter Anita Raey  where he didn’t seem bothered about discussing sexual topics and it left many wondering what his wife would think about it but it now makes sense.

Hot 96 resorts to rotating comedians to co-host morning show with Jeff Koinange following Jalango’s exit

Jalang’o quit Hot 96 to join Milele FM where he hosts the morning show together with Alex Mwakidau whom he worked with for four years at Radio Jambo.

Jalas co-hosted ‘The Hot Breakfast’ alongside Jeff Koinange for a year before he finally quit. Hot 96 is yet to find Jalas’ replacement, or perhaps they have adopted a new strategy altogether.

On Monday August 6th Jeff hosted the morning show with comedian Sleepy David. But apparently Sleepy isn’t a permanent replacement per se.

Several other top comedians will also be co-hosting the morning with Jeff Koinange. The likes of Oga Obinna and Professor Hamo are lined up to co-host ‘The Hot Breakfast’ on different dates.





Bien: Ezekiel Mutua is not the target audience, sisi hatumuogopi

Moral police Ezekiel Mutua has vowed to ban Sauti Sol’s new song. The group however has no regret about dropping a lewd music video.

Kenya Film Classification Board CEO termed ‘Melanin’ as an absolutely pornography video. Mutua expressed his deep disappointment with Sauti Sol for dropping the offensive song.

He’s not the target audience

Sauti Sol knew they would clash with Ezekiel Mutua even before they dropped ‘Melanin’. The quartet confirmed this while speaking on Hot 96 a day before they released their controversial song.

Jalango asked the group if they thought their video would be played on TV. He told them that the photos they were posting on social media were not Ezekiel Mutua friendly.

“The photos that you people have been posting are not Ezekiel Mutua friendly. So you think it (‘Melanin’) might not be played in our local TVs?” Jalango asked.

Bien-Aimé Baraza replied and told Jalas not to be scared. He says Ezekiel Mutua is not their target audience and assured him ‘Melanin’ would piss him off.

“Even the video is not Ezekiel Mutua friendly. I mean he’s not the target audience. We are pushing the boundary, we are entertaining. We are entertainers that’s what we do you know. Wee (Jalango) usiogope. Unatujua sisi Sauti Sol ni watu wa vitu kali sisi,” said Bien.
