Mheshimiwa Jalang’o talks about returning to radio

Comedian Jalang’o real name Felix Odiwuor has responded to his fans’ throng of questions about his next step in his career as a radio presenter versus his newly elected role into the government as Lang’ata Member of Parliament.

The former Kiss FM radio presenter cum politician shared a post on his Instagram page where he responded to all the questions that have been flooding his inbox ever since his victory in the race for MP.

Among the questions asked by his fans is if he is still planning on pursuing his radio career even after winning the MP seat for Lang’ata to which Jalang’o aka Jalas said that radio being his love, he does not rule out the possibility of ever getting back to presenting for radio.

Jalas added by saying that if the opportunity presents itself at any one time where he can run a morning radio show before heading to parliament, he would take it.

“For now Langata is my No. 1 priority! Delivery of our manifesto and the promises we made to the electorate.

Radio is my love and if I get a morning show that ends by 9 so that I can make it for bunge on time then why not? I know many MPs who still do their jobs and deliver for their constituency,” said Jalas.

The comedian also said that he will no longer be hosting club events or making club appearances because his new job comes with a lot of responsibilities.

“No! My new job comes with a lot of responsibilities and time for clubs might not be there anymore,” he wrote.

He, however, mentioned that he will still be doing advertisements as he plans to engage the youth of Lang’ata in many such projects and nurture their abilities.

“Hell yeah!! A lot of them! We will actually be now working with the young people of Langata in concept development and filming! I want to train as many young people as possible in our resource centers,” read his response.

Jalang’o further stated that he will use his YouTube channel, Jalang’o TV which has so far amassed a subscriber count of 574, 000, to showcase the projects he will be conducting in Lang’ata.

“Jalango TV is now in the hands of my team but once or twice I’ll be doing high-profile and political interviews. I will also use it to showcase the different projects we are doing in Langata,” he said.
