JKL Live Presenter, Jeff Koinange

We really tried to have him, and when we finally did, we said we´d do our best to give him everything we never had, including the both of us, a father and a mother, which I particularly never had.

Up and Close with blogger, Yvonne Aoll, the veteran Citizen TV Journalist shared.

Don´t step into anybody´s footsteps, don´t try and be like daddy in any way, no pressure to do what your dad did, do what you want to do.

Carve your own path.

This comes in just days after the JKL Live Presenter articulated that he has no regrets for the fact that his father passed on while he was still young.

Jeff explains that, had his affluent father lived longer, he would have been brought up a spoilt brat.

Jalang’o: No, Jeff did not call me stupid! Blogs edited the video to feed lies 

Comedian Jalang’o had a lot to explain on why he left Hot 96 FM after rumours that co host Jeff Koinange forced him to.

A video has been doing rounds on social media showing Koinange calling Jalas stupid in what seemed like a joke but Kenyans believed Koinange had formed a habit of always abusing the comedian on radio.


Jalas in a statement, said bloggers edited the video to make it look like his recent move to Milele FM was due to the so called harassment from Jeff, something that’s wasn’t true.

“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 is 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!” he said on social media.

“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.”


Some Kenyans believe Jalang’o ditched Hot 96 because Jeff was always insulting him(video)

Jalang’o is no longer part of the Hot 96 FM team after hosting the breakfast show on the station for almost a year and a half alongside veteran journalist Jeff Koinange.

Though the comedian took time to personally thank each and every person on the team that made the show possible, and then proceeded to leave in peace for Milele FM, some Kenyans believe he left the show because Koinange was always disrespecting him.

Stretched joke

A clip has been doing rounds on social media showing the two presenters arguing live on radio and Koinange jokingly calls Jalas “stupid”. Jalas orders him to stop but Jeff goes on to do it again.

Some argued that the joke went too far while others claim it’s something Jeff has been doing for sometime. Both presenters have not addressed the clip.

“Damn… Now I understand why Jalang’o has left Hot 96 for Milele FM…. Imagine having to put up with this kind of disrespect every morning ?????Btw being a co-host on radio is one of the hardest jobs in life, mtu anakuja studio na stress zake?‍♂️,” said a fan.

Jeff Koinange: I also go broke sometimes

Despite being worth Ksh 50 million, presenter Jeff Koinange sometimes looks at his bank account and sighs with disappointment.

The popular journalist confessed in an interview that he also goes broke sometimes just like any other ordinary Kenyan despite his wealthy family background and thick portfolio.

I go broke, just like the next person. But because I was born into a family name like this, ‘Koinange,’ they say, Oh you people have a street named after you, your people were in government for the last 50 years,” said Jeff in a one-on-one interview with SDE.

His father died when he was just two months old

Jeff, in the interview, said that his father died two months after he was born leaving his mother a widow with three other children to care of meaning he had to step up his hustle from a young age but he doesn’t regret as much.

“My father died the day I turned two months old, leaving a 28 year old widow to care for four kids on her own, and she did don’t just imagine things,” he said.

” Also because if he was around, we might have ended up as some really spoilt brats as kids, and I’m glad we didn’t end up that way. So, you know, it’s not my calling, but, I think it’s a good thing he went.

He added:

“And look, that’s what people think, it’s the stereotypical image they have of me, and I hope I can set the record straight with the book, because, everyone thinks I grew up privileged.

I do go broke, just like the next person. But because I was born into a family name like this, ‘Koinange,’ they say, “Oh, you people have a street named after you, your people were in government for the last 50 years.”

And for me it’s like, you know what, that’s all well and good, but listen to my story, listen to the fact that my father died the day I turned two months old, leaving a 28 year old widow to care for four kids on her own, and she did. You know, read the story, don’t just imagine.

“This is exactly why people are so misunderstood. And it is also why I think it’s important for everyone to write their story, because, people assume whatever they want to assume.

Even then, at the end of the day, I might not be able to convince some people. They’ll still sit and think, this is just a book, it’s just a story. And that’s unfortunate.”
