Kiss FM breakfast show host Oga Obinna has left the urban radio station, after only a year.
Following the expiry of his one-year contract, Obinna stated that they had mutually agreed with Radio Africa Group to part ways. Obinna had replaced comedian Phelix ‘Jalang’o’ Odiwuor, after Jalang’o, now Lang’ata MP, ventured into politics.
“I’m no longer at Kiss. I have finished my contract… The experience has been beautiful and I have achieved my dream and did everything I wanted to do. And everything I do from now henceforth will be extra,” he stated, revealing that he first sought an opportunity to work with the station in 2013.
Obinna has been hosting the show in recent months alongside Sheila ‘Kwambox’ Kwamboka, who joined the station in January 2023 from Vybez Radio, replacing Kamene Goro on the Kiss morning show.
Dismissing speculation on his exit and discussing a potential return to the station, he stated; “I know the reason as to why I have left so let those who want to speculate do it, it’s their job… its good vibes all around it, and people should not feel bad about it or anything. It’s been a nice run and maybe I might come back or maybe I will not. Time will tell.”
He thanked Radio Africa for the opportunity, stating that he had lived his dream.
“If it’s a job or a car, I will be extra. I have driven that car I wanted to drive (apart from Range Rover Sport), lived in the houses I wanted, and worked in an organization I always wanted… I have achieved what I wanted to do and now we move,” he stated.
Obinna spoke highly of Radio Africa Group for its treatment of employees.
“I have learnt that when an organization cares about its people and talent they thrive more. I have worked in organizations where they really don’t care about their employees. But here I was myself, dressed the way I want and doing my thing,” he told Radio Africa’s Mpasho.
