He went on to narrate his experience of working with the legendary Koinange.
“Everybody thought that it won’t work, but then it became the best show. I went and accepted that Jeff is this Guy who was raised up well and I’m from the village. I just went and became humble and started telling Jeff stories that he thought were movies na yeye pia akisema vitu zake naona ni Movies. So the difference in our lives just created magic” said Jalang’o.
Talking about his switch from Hot 96 to Milele FM, the celebrated radio comedian mentioned that his longtime friend and brother Alex Mwakideu reached out to him when everything was ready.
“We worked with Jeff for Two years, then Alex Mwakideu told Me, do you think we can ever work together again, Kumbe at that time he has already resigned from Radio Maisha, going to Milele. He says he has an offer for me. And I said working with you any day. I love working with Jeff but you are my brother and I love working with You” Jalas said,

“I don’t think he has ever forgiven me…” said Jalang’o.

“My brother…My Mentor…My Friend and my partner…I haven’t even called you to say bye because I don’t know what to tell..I guess my voice will shake all through and maybe I’d want to lie and maybe tell you I’ll be back..It’s your time to shine on! Hold the fort! You’ve always done it so it shouldn’t be be different! Thank you for everything Jeff1. Making me believe in myself again that I can fit in any place even when people dint believe in me you made me shine among the elite! “ reads Part of Jalang’o message
