Eugine Kabasa is set to release his latest book, The Making of an Icon: The inspiring journey of Jalang’o The book which is also written by KTN’s Brian George which tells in-depth the story of Langata MP Jalang’o.
Jalang’o overcame all odds and is now a member of parliament.
Born and raised in Homabay, Jalang’o came from very humble beginnings. His father and mother were native famers who could toil to provide for their children – they basically lived a pathetic life, even the basic were not basic to them.
Jalang’o kickstarted his radio career at Ramogi FM. He did voiceovers, and in January 2009, he applied for a job at Kiss 100 as a radio presenter, despite not having a degree.
He beat his degree-holding competitors and secured the job, co-hosting alongside Caroline Mutoko.
After three years, he left Kiss FM to join Radio Maisha, where he worked with Alex Mwakideu, before moving to Hot96, and then rejoining Mwakideu at Milele FM.
In 2020, he left Milele FM and returned to Kiss FM where he hosted the breakfast show along side Kamene Goro, who hosted the morning Kiss for the last time yesterday.
Jalang’o resigned in 2022 to focus on his political career and later won the Lang’ata MP seat in August 2022. He continues to still produce content on YouTube.
