It is one thing to look up to someone, but it is another to be tasked to take over from them. Well, this is the case for Phoenix FM Presenter, Chimweka Chileshe who also doubles as a Diamond TV Presenter.
We caught up with the Media Personality after noticing his presence on Phoenix FM’s Tonight Live for the past few days, a show that was originally hosted by Chinyota “Chi” Msimuko and Just Tash.
Chimweka revealed to Dennis Mwewa of Zed Hype Mag exclusively that he also does not know what led to the departure of Chi (someone he looked up to, radio wise) but he filled in for him once and his performance was perceived as impressive by the Production Manager, hence been offered the slot permanently.
“I’m obviously stoked about it, to be promoted to a show of such magnitude, that was hosted by one of the biggest (and my favorite) radio) presenters in this era. It will take a while for people to obviously adjust to change, but I’m confident I will do it, moreover, my bosses at Phoenix FM are equally confident in me which is a plus, God is good, isn’t He?” Chimweka said.
Last time Zed Hype Mag caught up with Chimweka, he did reveal that he will soon get into more current affairs programs and this is the reality of his plans.On top of this show, Chimweka has the Saturday Breakfast show on Diamond TV (The Weekend Marathon) previously hosted by Diamond TV CEO Costa Mwansa.
As Zed Hype Mag we passionate promoting young talent for that cause we are proud to see more young people make a massive impact in their various fields of life, and in Chimweka’s case in the media fraternity!
Keep aiming beyond the sky Chimweka ,we have to see what lies there.
