A new addition to Nairobi’s radio entertainment portfolio has been unveiled today. It is a Swahili radio station. The lineup of presenters is a thing of familiarity with people used to tuning in to radio frequencies in Nairobi.
- Vincent Ateya- He recently left Milele FM and will be hosting the Qwetu Asubuhi, a morning gospel show, that runs from 4am-6am.
- Mogaka- Popularly known for his theatrics on Milele FM, will also be a voice on Qwetu. He is a co-presenter with Vincent Ateya on Qwetu Asubuhi from 6am-10am.
- Donah Kaya will be hosting Qwetu Kazini, from 10am-1pm. The mid-morning show is meant to be engaging and entertaining.
- Zulekha will co-host this show with Dorah. They like the modern-day mwananchi exemplify the conflicts in our culture.
- Nyosh Gathu is a brother to Jimmy Gathu. He will be hosting Qwetu Jioni from 3pm-7pm. This show is envisaged to give its audience non-stop fuel to make it through the final part of their day. Nyosh is the sultry-voiced, well educated individual who is informed about emerging trends, and is accommodating enough to embrace the new way of life.
- Awinja, Jacky Vike, is the co-host of this show. Awinja is the house-manager who is wishful – as is expressed in her story telling style.
There are definitely other shows on the lineup. Qwetu will be airing on frequencies 95.3 FM in Nairobi, 99.1 FM in Kisumu and 92.0 FM in Mombasa. Something they promise you is Rhumba music. So ‘Karibu Nyumbani’- swahili for welcome home.
