Big Breakfast host Marcus quits Capital FM

Marcus at his farewell barbecue

Marcus Kwikiriza has finally said goodbye to the Kisementi based Capital FM radio.

Marcus has been hosting the “Big Breakfast” morning show at 91.3 capital FM.

He has worked as the reserve Brand Ambassador at Uganda Breweries Limited.

On Tuesday, the top city radio famed for playing Kampala’s fresh hits threw a farewell party dubbed #MarcusThanksRadio.

“I am leaving because it’s the stage of life, I need to concentrate on other projects,” Marcus said at his “Farewell Marcus BBQ” held at the radio’s premises.

“It’s either I give Capital FM 100% or nothing which is impossible with what am doing right now.”

He said Capital FM became family and he is truly grateful.

This is his Farwell message:

What started as a vocational job in S6 vac back in ‘98 (Sanyu Radio) has ended up giving me a very fulfilling career and opening more opportunities than I can care to admit.

It’s been 18 years of active radio work taking to me to 3 countries and 7 different radio stations.

The time has come to hung up the M.I.C…..(at least the one for radio)

To everyone that I have worked with in Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda, I thank you all for helping me improve my craft. Besides my home town Kla, I feel welcome in all 3 countries thanks to all of you.

To my latest family of @91.3 Capital FM, thanks for an amazing 5 years. All of you will forever be family.

Especially Jackie Nake Lumbasi and Jimmy Okoth. Thanks for helping us rock the breakfast airwaves for 5 solid years.

Keeping at number 1 isn’t easy and you have made it possible by hard work and consistency. Keep on keeping on guys….

UBL & NBS TV still remaining addresses I can be found at. Not to mention Blackstar Entertainment and Imara African Coffee.

Countdown is on to last radio show on Dec 15th.

One love y’all.
