Let’s be clear…

I was very busy over the weekend, I was working all day sato and yesterday I got into a route 32 bus to go see a very cute woman who just gave birth to an even cuter kid. Anyway – this weekend my gmail was blazing with hate mail and accusations of malice!

It started with Eve sending me a long statement via email and leaving the statement as a comment here.

I applaud Eve for replying to accusations on that piece, but sadly she was wrong on a few things. First off she says I should talk to her real friends. I DO!! And as much as she and many others would like to assume their drinking buddies or even their BFF’s would never sell them out. They DO! In large numbers by the way.

Then came the accusations that I’m being paid to finish Capital. Let’s be clear, for me to finish Capital I’d need more than a wordpress blog. I respect Capital as a brand and it saddens me to see it being run down.

When I was 9 and tired of listening to Metro FM and my dad’s Alpha Blondy cassettes on that morning drive to school, Capital brought something totally different in life, an appreciation for humor and introduced new genres of music into my young life.

And for that reason I rant about them (And am lucky a few thousand people get to read my rants)  so that they can realize their mess and fix the one brand that has a long life ahead in the local media. Cause seriously look at Kiss, they have re-launched 8 TIMES!!! That’s like every year since they first went on air. They’re clueless and the only reason they make money is cause they literally have  media buyer(s) in their pockets!

Then came the BIG one! Ati I hate on Capital cause they didn’t give me a job. Now something you perhaps didn’t know about me is …am a business graduate. And in any case if I should hate on a media house, it should be Radio Simba for seriously messing with a month of my life in 2006, but am over that.

I hope I’ve cleared up a few things.

Pssst! Send in your rants for Bitchfest Tuesday

    Nobody needs to be paid to finish Capital, they are happily doing it themselves! Take for example this past weekend: their studio mikes were not working and they didn’t realize this throughout Saturday and Sunday. I mean, don’t they listen to their own station?

    Ed Note Of course! They don’t listen to their own station! They have I-pods!

    HELPING CAPITAL

    Eve..I think I might get what you are hoping for in Rae…that she might be like Seanice (Where is Seanice?) but you guys forget, Seanice worked in radio for the longest time and had a great voice and came across as intelligent (even though i have no physical evidence of this) …Rae doesn’t…Eve..it’s okay  if you guys made a mistake with Rae…we get it..but for Gaetano’s sake (come one Gae is like 35!…she’s like 8-intellectually )…mix things up,..put Cess with Gae..Maq with Charles Rae with Italia ..Tina,on the back burner ,..and let’s get Capital back on track!!! Seeing you want constructive criticism..i think this is constructive enough..big thank you to Pete, Sam, Ciko and Edu,..everyone here has chipped in on what they feel would make CITM and Capital fm rock…as in media madness is being helpful…what do you have to say Eve?

    The guy asking why you give a damn is on to something? why do you give a damn? and kuwa serious, at what point did capital fm ever start listening to the views of their listeners?? HBR baby! They can keep their shitty morning show,cause game yao is ova! Gmoney in the mornings is the only show that makes sense!!

    LOLest, ati? Merry christmas and all the best with the dream! LMAO are you honestly telling me that capital fm doesn’t care what I, their ardent fan has to say? …then why do they have Facebook accounts? Anyway if this is true a part of me has lost respect for capital but mad respect for being helpful versus just talking out yo ass!

    Maq in the afte, how????? why would u suggest that? But I love! The Cess in the morning idea..I think she would make him come out of his shell

  12. Posted by Marge on December 21, 2009 at 8:44 am

    You’re all deluded, you think that if you talk they will listen? Just change the frequency to 105.5,get a thorough mcheko fit from maina, tune in to capital after 7,fuck their morning show!

    i don’t take this blog seriously when I read it and chat about it with guys in the office seeing i work in advertising , and i have to say , you are so full of shit on a daily basis , but today you had us thinking,on a positive note, have you spoken to Mr.kirubi about your idea? if not take it to him ,and ignore these twats in here , if it makes sense Somo and c.k will take it up.hopefully you can maintain this level of writing in 2010 ,i.e contructive criticism.

  14. Posted by Njeri on December 21, 2009 at 8:50 am

    YES!! Cess and Gaetano – mtoto was uganda- for capital mornings!!!

  15. Posted by Olivia on December 21, 2009 at 8:50 am

    Don’t bother seeking Kirubi’s, but good job on telling it like it is, hope we get Cess with Gaetano, the guy does need that same level of understanding, not that rae is bad, it’s that Cess better!

    Hmm.. Interesting comments.
    I’m an ardent fan of Capital. But yes, Fareed and Sean will never be replaced. That said…

    Rae is great if you listen to what she says. And yes she does talk like that, it’s not a fake accent. So while she can’t change her voice, maybe she should be given the genre she loves – rock.
    Tina… hmm…. needs to change to a more mature presenter.
    Italia… erm. I don’t know. I never liked her that much. She needs to stop being so plastic and fake.

    Maq and Cess make a good team, but put him back with Charles (back to being a boys show) and put Cess with Gae.

    Meantime, look for one Teddy Muthusi and throw him into the Jam’s mix. He might not be a good stickler to rules, but he’s got jokes.

    As for Eve, she’s doing her bit. Her show rocks. I haven’t sampled her administration but in time.. in time.

    Somoina… I think she’s out to prove a point – that she can clean of Seanice’s footprints. And I believe that’s where the problem lies.

    So Pius.. go to DJ CK and tell him (or send him an anon letter, whatever you fancy)… and tell him your two cents worth. Who knows, you might land Somo’s job (and some of us would be delirious)…

    Did I say too much ha ha ha ha.
    Kweli kutanyesha leo! Umesema good stuff about Capital!

  21. I’m not a capital Stan since I only listen to two of their shows that’s Soul Inc. and Capital Entertainment and Sports..they clearly need to do something on that breakfast show though I still won’t listen to it cuz my mornings are solely dedicated to Gmoney In the Morning show-the guy most of you love to hate or is it the other way round?..all the mid-morning shows suck balls with the exception on My Block Rewind on HBR…the writings are clearly on the wall better read em…again all the afternoon shows suck balls in all the Kenyan radios and at that time I ride with 94.7 East Africa Radio baby!!! and that’s where i learn my swahili(it’s used to be so wrong in all accounts coz i hated that language in high school and the sheng factor,y’al dig?) but I miss Marcus and Leo in the afternoons though..lol. I don’t listen to drive shows so I wouldn’t rate any station coz they all suck balls too..that time the boy goes streaming online baby, stiff competition between Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg on Hot97.com and 1xtra’s Tim Westwood- I can’t see beyond these two shows thanx to technology there are applications that enables me to do that..evening shows Eve takes me on but I didn’t like her convo on Uptown 91.1 cuz Capital too plays dancehall nowadays which means Dancehall seizes to be a Ghetto music only it goes uptown too..but she still has what it takes to get you listening to her show the only issue i’ve always had with Hits not Homework is the chit chat segment…can they ever chat other issues the youths are going thru? does it always have to be relationships? but it’s alright. and on Friday the best shows ever are Ghetto radio’s Friday Nite Live with Dj Zaq and Silverstar on Hbr before i flip it up to East Africa Radio’s Friday Nite Live till 1 am.. lol and on Saturday is the creme de la creme of favorite shows baby..from God’s Favorite show on Hbr to Soul Inc. and Capital Music and Sport on Capital to Coca Cola street mix and sports and Spinderella on Hot 96 to the new baby on the block Ghetto radio’s Sprite street mix…..oohh!! shit do we have other radio stations apart from this i’ve mentioned?..where did Kiss go?..Nation Fm?…
    Don’t hate that’s just my opinion and it affirms the emerging trend in radio the world over..people don’t jus have favorite radio stations no more …it’s more about favorite shows and radio personalities…

    ED NOTE Comment of the YEAR!!! Good stuff

  22. Posted by Angy on December 22, 2009 at 10:15 am

    Gaetano and Fareed would be awesome. They are tight, good buddies, different aspects on life and both hooooot!! Come on DJCK or Somoino or Eve or Cyrus. You know Fareed would come back. He is Capital. Think about it!!

  23. i propose Gaetano and Cess for the morning show coz no matter how much they deny it Rae and Gaetano is a whack combination.
