After a short break from the airwaves, radio host and comedian Jalang’o will be resurfacing tomorrow in a new morning show with TV personality, Jeff Koinange.
The pair will make their debut on the new show – The Hot Breakfast – at Royal Media Services’ Hot 96 tomorrow, on 27th April, 2017, starting at 6am.
Jalang’o, known officially as Felix Odiwuor, resigned from Radio Maisha early this month where he had taken command of the morning talk show at the station, which is owned by the Standard Group. Since then he had kept a low profile, leaving his fans guessing his new destination.
In a tweet, Jeff who will host the show alongside Jalang’o, confirmed the development. Jalang’o, who celebrates his birthday as he begins a new job, was introduced on JKL on Citizen TV
“Join me every morning from 6am to 10am on the HOT BREAKFAST on HOT 96 With @jalangoo starting THIS THURSDAY!! Spread the WORD!!! It’s gonna be SSSSSSMOKIN HOT!!!!”
The duo will be smoking out David Oyuke and Andrew Muthure, popularly known as DavidAndDru in the show. Andrew is the easy going chilled out guy who will call your mess and David Oyuke comes of as the renaissance man. Together they team up to tackle politics, trending topics and relationships.
The future of Oyuke and Muthure at Hot 96 still remains unknown, but sources say they will be redeployed.

The poaching of Jalang’o by Royal Media from Radio Maisha came a few days after a survey placed the comedian as the most popular radio personality in the country.
The combination of Jeff and Jalang’o is hoped to lift the fortunes of HOT 96 which is still low in listenership ranking. The radio station targets urban youth in a market dominated by established players like Classic 105, Kiss FM, One FM as well as XFM.
Jeff will try to replicate his TV popularity in radio while Jalang’o who was used to rendering his satirical comments mostly in Swahili on Radio Maisha, a mass audience station, will have to rebrand his taste of humour to fit the urban youth setting.
