Naturally concerned, Joyce questioned why the office hadn't taken charge of the situation directly.

However, before confusion could escalate, Lotan intervened, revealing the true purpose of the call: to wish Joyce a happy birthday.

Jakes, the youngest son of Joyce Wa Gituro, has followed in his mother's footsteps by pursuing a career in radio.

At just 18 years old, Jakes has already made waves in the industry, recently stepping into the shoes of Kerry Martin at Homeboyz Radio after Martin's departure for Kiss FM.

In an interview with SPM buzz, Jakes expressed his deep admiration for his mother's influence on his career path.

He fondly reminisced about accompanying her to radio shows as a child, highlighting his passion for entertainment and the invaluable lessons he learned from her.

"Way back when I was young I used to tell my mum who used to go to the Sunday show to wake me up so that we could go together,” Nyanjom said," Jakes shared.
