Capital FM Programmes Controller Michael Waithaka has denied that Anita Nderu, Anne Mwaura, Tracy Wanjiru and DJ Jo Kisila, the crew tasked with hosting the oldest hip-hop show on Kenyan radio, Hits Not Homework, have been fired.
Listeners noticed that Mwaura, Wanjiru and Kisila have been missing on the show for the better part of 2019 which consequently led to rumors that they have been fired.
But according to Waithaka, their was a reshuffle that saw Mwaura moved to mid morning show The Fuse, while Wanjiru is now hosting Saturday’s morning show.
“No one has been fired,” said Waithaka. “Anne moved to The Fuse, Tracy is on Saturday breakfast. They were on a one year contract from Capital One of which ended in January but that doesn’t mean that they are out of Capital.”
Last year, Capital FM debuted the new team in an effort to replace Amina Abdi who was moved to The Breakfast show on weekdays. The debut was marred by a lot of controversy once they announced Nderu –A Capital FM employee– had been picked as the host despite holding auditions to tap new talent.
Since then, the show has been struggling and Capital have been looking for answers. Word also has it that the station is invading Homeboyz Radio yet again to scout for another Amina-like presenter who will redeem the show.
“The show just needed direction,” said the Program controller.
“Basically what was supposed to happen every year we had agreed on refreshing the show, we had targets.”
