Capital FM is known for having Kenyan presenters with British or American accents. It is even rumoured that this is one of the requirements before gaining employment at the Chris Kirubi owned station.
One of their products, Victoria Rubadiri, even exported the accent to NTV.
Kenyans have for a long time now been making fun of the station, and it is now widely referred to as Capiroo FM.
This week on Tujuane, one lady spoke with a British accent, and Kenyans saw this as an opportunity to bring back the Capiroo issue.
Below are some tweets on the matter.
You have 2MB of accent remaining. Dial *544*Capiroo# to get another accent.
