Nobody wanted to move with me to Radio Jambo- Mbusii
Speaking on Jessy Junction, Mbusii said that he first approached his them co-host Bonoko who declined his request before informing Lion (his currently Co-host), who was willing to risk it all and try on a new challenge at Radio Jambo.
“Ukishapata greener pastures, huwezi kaa tu pahali, na hakuna mtu sikuambia Gheto Radio kwamba naenda. Na nilikuwa nawaambia wamesema niende na mtu tunaeza fanya kazi na yeye.
Mtu wa kwanza alikuwa Bonoko, but yeye akasema yeye ako home…pia nilitaka niende na Dj niintrodice DJ huko. So Mtu alikubali ni Lion na hapo ndo tukaenda. Sio ati ni kwa ubaya nilitoka Ghetto, Ghetto ni Home, walinijenga for 8 years. Sisi bado ni mabeshte,” said Mbusii.
He added that stories that were making rounds on social media about his Salary at Radio Jambo were cooked with the figures being doubled.
Mbusii also went down the memory lane, remembering the days he used to get three thousand per month as a messenger at Ghetto Radio. This was at the early stages of his journey in the Radio industry.
The radio personality further stated that he got ushered into radio as a Traffic Updates reader, before his role was scraped off and got employed as Ghetto Radio’s office messenger for 2 years.
“Nilianza radio na Traffic Updates, show ya Asubuhi na Jioni, Nilikuwa najiita, Senior Deputy Police Inspector Francis Ng’ombe… after hapo nikakuwa Messenger for 2 and a half years. Walikuwa wananilipa three thousand. So after Maji Maji kukuja ndio akanipea nasafi ya Radio tena,” said Mbusii.
