Rasta Rob is back on radio

NB: this story has been extracted from

For some reason, it didn't hit us when we saw him enter Crane chambers and go up the stairs to Sudhir Ruparelia's office for a meeting. It could have been something to do with opening a Crane Bank account, or maybe asking for a place for his 9 year old daughter at Kabira International School. For some reason we didn't think Sanyu. Now seems like it included all of those.
Rasta Rob, who just recently returned from kyeyo in the UK was serious when he said he was here to stay. As if to prove it, he has got a lucrative job at Sanyu FM. After discussions with Sudhir himself and the Betsy Mugamba, the General Manager, Rasta Rob (now actually Master Rob) signed on to join the onair staff and will be joining Krystal (Angela Newman) on the evening drive show 5-8pm week days, the slot that catapulted the former rastaman to stardom both at Sanyu and later at CBS.
And it wasn't easy signing him on. The beefy bait that hooked Rob didn't just stop at a fat paycheck but also included a few juicy bits from Sudhir's other business ventures.
What happens to the fish when the water dries up? Most people don't care but we are concerned for Amarula funny man Irish Kyebandula who has been doing the show with Krystal. We are not sure what his fate will be after Rob's entry. Whether he's to stay (and on what show) or is to be shown the exit remains in the balance but he's been spotted at another radio station. Asking for a job or just visiting friends, we quite can't say.
