Fatboy quits radio show after 21 years


The news coming from Crane Chambers is that Sanyu FM’s James Onen also known as Fatboy has officially stopped working at Sanyu FM.

Fatboy has worked for 21 years with the radio as a a co-presenter of the weekly morning programme, Sanyu Breakfast which aired from Monday to Friday, 6am to 10am. He was also the host of the Saturday morning Alive and Kicking radio show.

On a Facebook post, Fatboy praised his fans and promised to communicate his next plans.

“21 years. The ride is over. Thanks for the support all these years, you’re the best fans in the world. Will communicate future plans soon.   In the meantime, ladies, I’m coming for some transport money. #SavetheBoyChild,” he posted.

Fat Boy has been one of the biggest hosts on Sanyu FM. He has been known for his controversial style on radio. During the 21 years, he worked with other well-known presenters like Crystal Newman and Seanice Kacungira. While they left over time, FatBoy remained, till now.

He has been replaced by popular comedian Patrick Idiringi commonly known as Salvado.

Rumour is rife that the employees have sacked for holding a strike over a salary reduction. The Twitter timeline for the radio station, @882SanyuFM carried messages asking for a lawyer to provide services for people who the tweet said had been wrongfully dismissed.
