The exit of popular comedian Jalang’o from Milele FM last year was without doubt bound to create a vacuum. And in filling this vacuum, the MediaMax station found itself in a bitter fight with Royal Media Services. The fight involved comedian Prof Hamo.
Apparently, after Jalang’o left Milele and joined Kiss 100’s morning show, MediaMax began luring Prof Hamo from Royal Media’s Hot 96. This effort appeared to have been fruitful after the comedian expressed interest to move. He was set to join Mediamax Limited’s Milele FM after completing his self-isolation mid last year.
Reports indicated that Hamo had already signed a contract with MediaMax and was supposed to join radio host Dee also known as Presenter 001 to host Milele FM Drive from 4 pm. to 8 pm.

“Milele FM had started running a radio promotion of Hamo and Dee and on catching wind of it, Hot 96 FM acted swiftly to retain the comedian’s talent. Hamo was reportedly offered another lucrative contract,” one report said. “The Royal Media Services-owned station also made their own promo in which Jeff Koinange announced a radio comeback. Both stations Milele FM and Hot 96 FM concurrently ran promotions on the comedian.”
The Royal Media Services promo by Jeff said: “We’re Baaaaaaack! The Hottest Breakfast Show in all of Africa #JeffAndHamoOnHot returns Monday, August 3, 2020, from 6am. – 10am. Only on Hot 96!”
Hamo is currently embroiled in a public spat with fellow comedian Jemutai, with who he has two kids. Prof. Hamo is accused of neglecting his kids despite his huge media earnings.
