“So nlikua very famous si Churchill akenda break ya one and a half year akarudi Classic FM. Sasa mimi nkabaki hapo na fame yangu iko kule juu. Haikuchukua ata siku mbili simu ndo hio KTN ‘hallo, we were told Churchill has taken a break what will you be doing? Tunataka kukupea show’. Akemention hela, hio hela ilikua nzuri
“Wakaniuliza ‘we are thinking so you come in we prepare we start next month’. Nkamwambia no no no. Nkadanganya. Mi nahitaji hela ‘nkasema mimi nimekua na concept, nimekua na show ata nimekua nkiandika, tuanze next week’. Nataka hela maanake nyumba imefungwa nini. Nikaanza the followig week sina jina, sina concept sina anything,” Eric said.
