Comedian Herman Gakobo Kago better known by his stage name Prof Hamo has been fired from Royal Media Services (RMS) owned radio station Hot 96.
As reported by Kenyans.co.ke, it is said that the Churchill comedian was sent home nearly a week ago.
“He was relieved of his duties after the scandal with Stella Bunei Koitie (Jemutai Chibambe) emerged,” an insider at the station said.
“Hamo no longer works for the station. We, however, wish him the best in all his endeavours,” another source added.
Further details revealed that the comedian had crossed paths with his bosses over indiscipline issues.
Hamo who was hosting the show alongside Jeff Koinange has been replaced by Clyde Katiba.
This comedian and Jemutai were embroiled in a paternity scandal, with the latter accusing the former of abandoning his two children showing up late night with just 2 Oreos and drunk.
Hamo responded arguing that his wife took over the matter and sent upkeep money to Jemutai. He added that “I have children who live with me and others who don’t live with me. I have been providing for my children from day one and there’s no day they went without food or shelter or anything they need.”
Daniel Ndambuki’s (Churchill) aided the conflicting families to resolve their issues with Hamo accepting to pay school fees and also demanding a DNA test.
Yestaday, Jemutai stated that the results confirmed that the then Hot 96 presenter sired their two children.
In August 2020, Hamo was poised to join Mediamax Limited’s Milele FM from Hot 96 FM.
Again, Kenyans.co.ke report that the comedian had already signed a contract with Milele FM.
The Churchill Show comedian was set to join radio host Dee also known as Presenter 001 to host Milele FM Drive from 4 pm to 8 pm.
Groups Radio Programs Manager at Mediamax, Simaloi Dajom however declined to comment on the issue. Hamo was reportedly offered a new contract to remain at Hot 96.
