May God bless you as start your new job at Kiss 100 with Kamene Goro," reads Dr. Ofweneke’s post in part.

Upon seeing Dr Ofweneke’s message Obinna replied; “We move. Thanks bro, some days when I'm off you can fill in for me as Obinna? Just keep saying waaampoto not shekebedeeee,”.
On Sunday, an excited Obinna celebrated the new opportunity saying that he had faced enough rejection in his life saying the new job was proof of his hard work.
Crowning it as the hallmark of his career, Obinna noted that he is one of the few presenters on radio who can boast of having done "the full nine yards".
"I'm the only radio presenter to have done the whole 9 yards, started with the late-night show, then evening, then midmorning, then drive and now breakfast. I'm contented.
"To all my former colleagues and bosses asanteni for ya'll are the reason why this is possible. You all played a pivotal role in teaching me, sharpening me, and guiding me well as you prepared me for this position and I won't let all of you down. I got this," he posted.
Adding that; “One man's trash is another man's treasure. wheh!! I have been rejected, fired, mistreated, gossiped, laughed at! Not once, not twice, told how I wasn't worthy blah blah...however as I look back I realise all these have been blessings. They made me stronger, made me work harder and made me better. let me take this opportunity to thank everyone that fired me, pushed me away, cancelled me or mistreated me in a personal or professional position, asanteni. Without that I wouldn't have worked harder maybe,”.
Comedian 2Mbili who was also in the race to replace Jalang’o wrote; “I don't like the way am happy for you. congrats broo... Lets roll with the wins... ❤️,”.
