The renowned radio presenter quit Royal Media on March 18.

Former Radio Citizen presenter Steve Jacob Maunda alias Shatta Bway has joined Cape Media. 

He will be in charge of the company's sports gaming platform, besides his broadcasting roles on Radio 47 and TV47.

"Shatta Bway joins Cape Media Limited; he will be the Director of Projects and Strategy for Maybets as well as TV47 and Radio47 host," Cape Media announced while unveiling him.

Shatta's last show on Radio Citizen was on Monday, March 18.

While leaving, the father of two expressed his gratitude to Waks Tikitaka fans for their support during the five-year stint. 

Shatta Bway joined Cape Media from Radio Citizen of Royal Media Services.

“It has been five amazing years in Waks Tikitaka thank you very much for becoming our family. You have stood by us in every corner we took. We came here green and you have made us number one for those five years and we don't take it for granted,” he said.

Shatta also thanked his co-presenters Q-Tee and DJ Rambo and his fellow workmates; Fred Afune, Vincent Kimani, Vincent Ateya, and Jeridah Andayi.

In a video on his YouTube channel after exiting Radio Citizen, Shatta explained that his decision to leave was to concentrate on raising his two children.

“At this point where I am in life, I make decisions like two parents. I have to think as a father and as a mother. I need more time with my kids, for example, my son is now 13 years and this is the point a parent is likely to lose their children unknowingly,” Shatta explained.

“I feel I need time with my kids and I can’t be working on something that ties me down daily limiting what I need to do with my kids. I am trying just to be the best dad.”

Shatta lost his wife in June 2023 after she fell ill and was admitted to the hospital for some time.
