Top Radio Africa presenter quits after 7 years

Major Blow!

Radio Africa Group

Nick Ndeda has left X FM after 7 years at the station.

“So, I’m doing my final show on XFM tomorrow. It’s been an awesome 7 years hosting that zany morning show. I had great shoes to fill following Fareed Khimani. Tomorrow, let’s do it one last time! And if you wanna send samosas to the studio then all I can say is aaaaaaamen!” read his goodbye message.

Radio Career

Nick who is also an actor joined radio after he took his late brother Jeremy Odhiambo for a radio audition at Homeboyz Radio.

“If it wasn’t for my brother Jeremy Odhiambo, I wouldn’t be on the airwaves. He told me to accompany him for a radio audition at Homeboyz Radio and I had nothing to do. So after hours of queuing, it was his turn. So I left the line and the ushers were like ‘where are you going? You stood up on the line for hours you might as well try.’ I did and just like that, I got it and he didn’t,” Nick told Daily Nation.

He spent 3 years at Homeboyz Radio then left for Royal Media Group’s Hot 96. A huge opportunity came knocking at his door and he left for South Africa after landing a role as ‘Kalonzo’ in popular M-Net show ‘Jacob's Cross’.

After he was done with the show he got a call and joined XFM where he has been a presenter for the last 7 years.
