Media personality Chiki has quit her radio job on Vybez Radio.
She did not explain exactly why but intimated that she will take a short break then get back to working on her projects.
Her exit letter was posted on Instagram.
“ITS WITH HEAVY EMOTIONS THAT I CAN NOW ANNOUNCE MY DECISION TO LEAVE @VYBEZRADIOKE . IT WAS NOT AN EASY DECISION TO MAKE. IN SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME I HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THE LISTENERS AND WITH THE TEAM.”
“HOWEVER I AM SO EXCITED BY WHATS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW. I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN CARRIBEAN MUSIC AND AFRICAN MUSIC, SO THAT WE CAN BE MORE OF A GLOBAL FORCE. I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT I SEE AS THE FUTURE, WHERE ALL BLACK PEOPLE COLLABORATE, EXCHANGE AND MAKE MONEY TOGETHER.”
“I LOVE THE GROWTH OF DIGITAL, AND THE IDEA THAT THIS LITTLE THING CALLED YOUR PHONE CAN BE ALMOST AN ENTIRE MEDIA HOUSE. I AM NOT GOING TO ANNOUNCE WHATS COMING NEXT JUST YET, BECAUSE I NEED TO TO SLEEP, AND TAKE A LITTLE BREAK. BUT WHEN I ANNOUNCE, YOU WILL HOPEFULLY UNDERSTAND WHY I HAD TO MAKE THIS DIFFICULT MOVE, AND WHY THE FUTURE IS SO BRIGHT. THANK YOU FOR BLESSING ME WITH YOUR EARS!”
Her fans reacted to her decision to leave the station. Here are some reactions from fellow radio presenters.
