NRG Radio which was launched in March 2018 is celebrating five years since its inception.
While the radio station is thriving in Kenya, Kevin Mulei who owns the company opened a new station in Uganda.
The new radio station went live on Wednesday, January 18, with Mwalimu Rachel taking up a trainer’s role to mentor talents.
While announcing her move to Uganda, she noted that she had been tasked to make sure the presenters were equipped with the requisite knowledge to deliver.
“When I was called to train I doubted myself but I encouraged myself since I have been a presenter for fifteen years. I took the challenge with humility and a lot of prayers,” she said.
Kenyan presenter Sean Preezy also left to join NRG Radio Uganda.
Kevin Mulei is the founder of NRG Radio.
He is also the founder of the once popular Groove Awards as well as Mo Sound Events.
He began his career as a DJ (DJ Kev) before quitting and later founded Groove Awards with the vision of promoting, supporting and celebrating talented gospel musicians in Kenya.
He later opened Mo Sound Events, a creative company that organizes events, provides production services, digital media and entertainment equipment with operations across East and Central Africa.
Mulei was born on September 5th 1982 in Kisikeni Village, Machakos County.
He was mainly raised by his grandparents since his parents lived and worked in Uganda.
He spent most of his time with his grandmother on the farm and this introduced him to the world of business.
When he was about nine years old he had his own small vegetable garden where he could farm and sell groceries to make a little cash.
Just before he could finish high school, his parents relocated to Gigiri in Nairobi where he joined them and began his career as a DJ.
