I wanted to be a Tour Guide – Milele FM boss Alex Mwakideu

Milele FM Head of Radio Alex Mwakideu has disclosed that he wanted to be a tour guide, but ended up being a radio presenter.

In a recent interview, Mwakideu who co-hosts the Milele breakfast alongside Jalang’o said that he grew up at the Coast, and all they dreamt of was to become tour guides, where they would find European women to marry and move abroad.

He went on to say that his dream was to party and tour while at the same time getting paid for doing it, but he did nothing to follow the dream.

Sikutaka kuwa kwa radio, nilikuwa nataka kuwa Tour Guide. Growing up in Mombasa kulikuwa na hio story ya unajua ukiwa tour guide utapata mama mmoja mzungu pale kidogo kidogo Ujerumani na hio story ya Kenya imeisha. So that was my dream, to become a tour guide nianze kuenjoy, partying. Unajua pia touring unaenda Maasai Mara, unapeleka watu huko Lamu na you enjoy as you earn your money. I didn’t do anything about it,” narrated Mwakideu.

According to him, he keenly followed drama during his school days until he landed an opportunity with a radio station that was looking for a radio drama actors.

A man called Peter Musembi then said he had a good voice and he should try reading the news which he did until the day he got an opportunity to go on air.

So news reader alikuwa ameenda kucover story the President is there and there is traffic he can’t make it. Nikaambiwa Mwakideu this is your time saa saba kamili. Nikapewa Habari live nikaipiga kweli and when I came out the whole office was loud and excited,” he added.

He attributed his 14 years success on radio to training with the best and having good mentors.
