Celebrated comedian and new KISS FM Breakfast radio show host Felix Oduor popularly known as Jalang’o has revealed that he will be the next Lang’ata Member of Parliament in the 2022 General elections.
While speaking in an interview on Billy O’clock, the former Papa Shirandula actor disclosed that his stint at the Radio Africa-owned radio station will be last final journey on the radio before he vies for the Lang’ata Constituency seat.
This was after he was asked if could go back to Radio Maisha if they offered him an irresistible contract to which he replied that he now wants to accomplish his dream of owning a media company and had already started Jalang’o TV on YouTube.
“Sasa hii ndio safari yangu ya mwisho redioni maanake nieanza shughuli zangu na sasa ni mipango zangu pia kuwa na kitu yangu ya media nikaanza Jalang’o TV ndani ya YouTube. Kenya’ number one online show,” he said.
He also revealed that Radio Maisha had tried contacting him but he chose to go to KISS FM since that was where his radio journey started.
He went on to state that he was using KISS FM as his exit plan to join politics something that he had been thinking for a while.
He expressed his confidence in clinching the Lang’ata seat claiming that he was not the incoming MP but he was already the Constituency’s MP.
He added that he was running for the seat because he was tired of crying for a change stating that it is difficult for a common mwanachi to bring the change unless he joined politics.

“You are looking at Lang’ata MP, I am not incoming. When they mention MPs’ names, know that you will hear Jalang’o. It is hard for a common mwananchi to bring that change we are all looking for bur for a politician it is easy to bring the change because you are in politics,” he said.
Jalang’o hosted his first show on his return to KISS FM on Monday 13 alongside Kamene Goro.
