It’s been a long journey…. but it’s finally official. I am so proud to announce that I will be the host of the drive time show @vybezradioke. What an honour. I remember being told off by my parents for playing dancehall, having cd’s taken away, being told I can’t go out lol, not sleeping and raving all night before school in dingy underground dancehall, reggae and soca clubs. Starting my journey dancing dancehall. Dancing on carnival floats to Soca. Going to reggae concerts in parts of london that I wasn’t allowed to go in. My love for the music, for the culture, for the vybe has been life long, and today it feels worth it. I want to say thank you to Reggae, to dancehall and to Soca for being the sound track to my life. I hope to do you justice Nairobi 104.5 Mombasa 98.7 Nyeri 98.8 Meru 107.1
