Published

on

Media personality and actor Wanjiku Karanja known by her the street moniker Shix Kapienga has spoken about how she found out she had lost her job at Hot 96.

Speaking to Adelle Onyango on her latest podcast, Legally Clueless, Shix detailed how her work life was like from the beginning all the way to when she was let go from her radio gig.

“I took up a job for reggae, not because I knew reggae music, but I told God, this is an opportunity that has been given to me, can I do it? Yes, I can. I was like, I don’t know anything about reggae. I did not know. I learnt, and I was good at it and I became good at it and I would learn every day. I made it my job to learn and I did. I think it took me a few months and I was good at it. I made a few blunders on the radio and on-air, I did a couple but I managed and that is why I was on the radio for 7 years.”

Shix explained that her zeal to work on the radio was dwindling.

“At the beginning of this year, when I went back to work, I was actually from leave, I had come from visiting my sister (in France). I was too frustrated in 2019, and come this year I was going to start afresh, but when the D-Day for me going back to work came, I was like can I extend my leave? I even called my boss and asked. and she was like it is about time you came back to work.”

She added,

“I went back to work and I was like, do I really need to be here? I’m I giving my all, are my bosses okay. it was not good because I was jumping from show to show, I was losing relevance on my show, since July I was on people’s shows not on my show.”

She continued,

“I wanted everything to be perfect, I did not want to be blamed for something going wrong I felt like I was not good enough for it there are times I would get sick… I used to have migraines and my voice would go. Only to find out it was tension and stress. I had lost weight. I started having panic attacks. I was panicking I couldn’t do anything, I was shaking.”

She later went to work and that is when she learned that she had been let go.

Shix said, “To date, it hasn’t hit me yet that it happened. I’m thankful that a girl raised in Kangemi has gone on to rub shoulders with influential people who have come to be good friends.”

Amina Abdi quietly quits troubled Capital FM

Published

on

Capital FM presenter Amina Abdi Rabar has called it quits at the station which had recently been hit by a massive exodus of presenters.

Amina’s exit was not announced neither did she tell her listeners that she was leaving the station she had worked for for almost a decade.

In the last few weeks, Fareed Khimani who returned to Capital FM last year, has been hosting the morning show alone and disclosed tha there will be a new co-host who will be joining him soon.

“Amina Abdi will not be returning and I will be joined soon by a new co-host. She has gone to do big and better things,” he said.

Amina, who is a vivid social media user, did not tell her followers that she was leaving her morning show leaving many to speculate on what exactly transpired between her and station owned by city billionaire Chris Kirubi.

Her social media pages showed that she had deleted almost everything to do with the media house only leaving the material she promotes and the show she hosts on NTV, The Trend.

Her departure from Capital fm comes just a month after another long time presenter Miano Muchiri left, and unlike the quiet departure by Amina, he said he was leaving his mid-morning show which he had hosted for more than a decade.

“The time has come to say goodbye to radio I would love it if you tuned in tomorrow one last time from 10:00-14:00,” he told his listeners then.

In mid-2019, the media house lost a host of its top talents, including radio host Anita Nderu who resigned saying she felt she had given her best and wanted new challenges.

Others who left the station are Web Editor and lifestyle writer/photographer Susan Wong, who resigned in January 2019 to return to her Canadian home and popular presenter Laura Walubengo, who quit in July 2018.

Others who also left were veteran presenters like Maqbul Mohammed, Cess Mutungi and My Two Cents co-hosts Sharon Mundia.
