There are also rumours that wa Macharia could eventually be paired with Nyoxx wa Katta in the Friday night Mugithi show on Inooro TV.

Nyoxx and wa Macharia have a long history together as mentor and student.

“Nyoxx is my professional’s true north. She adopted me as her own at a time we did not have any history,” wa Macharia once said.

According to wa Macharia, were it not for Nyoxx, who also started out at Coro FM, she may not have been the successful radio journalist that she is today.
