Uganda’s ‘King of Radio’ Fatboy real name James Onen is back on air with an online digital radio he started dubbed ‘Reckless Radio’. So far the reception is fine going by online comments especially from his fans who had been yearning for his return on air.
Fatboy was fired from Sanyu FM a few months back after allegedly leading a staff strike which resulted from a management proposal to cut salaries by 25% because of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the staff members mostly radio presenters were not amused and went on a sit down strike until they all got fired after failing to come to an agreement.
He will now be hosting a morning show from 6Am to 10 Am on the radio that can be listened to via an App. where he is joine by Olive.
The veteran presenter is joined by Crystal Newman his former colleague at Sanyu in a program that runs in the evenings in a program called The Groove from 3PM to 7pm. onday to Friday..
This has somehow come as a surprise to many who expected the duo to join one of the already established radio stations but the man with over two decades of experience on the airwaves, had other ideas.
