Multi-talented radio presenter cum actress Nancy Wanjiku popularly known as Shix Kapienga has exited Hot 96.
Taking to social media, the former Drop Zone show host bid her co-host cum comedian Rapcha the Sayantist goodbye as she appreciated him for the time they spent working together and the memories they shared.
“Rapchiziiiiiiiiii @rapcha.sayantist It has been one amazing journey, and I will most definitely miss our crazy nights on air. #Bless,” she wrote. To which Rapcha responded with two broken heart emojis.
The announcement came as a surprise especially to her listeners and fans. A move that saw some camp at her Instagram account to wish the presenter well in her future endeavours.
"The next chapter will be awesome," stated comedienne Teacher Wanjiku. "Once a star always a star. Bless you," added gospel singer Holy Dave.
