The New Female Voices of Capital FM Kenya

Davina Leonard

A  trained actor, freelance producer and lover of all things caffeine-based or unicorn themed. She studied drama in Scotland, where she later took a one woman show to the famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Like everyone, she has been hustling in and around. She tried getting acting jobs in London for a few years (she spent most of her time standing in the rain in inappropriate clothing, handing out flyers).

Davina later moved back to Nairobi to join her family and has spent the last few years teaching acting at the Kenya National Theatre and producing one woman shows.

She caught Capital FM’s eyes and ears last year when she was interviewed about her short film, ‘Poacher’, now streaming on Netflix. You can catch her on  Capital In The Morning with Fareed Khimani from Monday to Friday 6AM to 10AM.

Soni Adriance

Popularly known as Soni Side up, began her entertainment career in digital media running a food/drink, travel, and lifestyle Instagram page.

On air, you can expect fun conversations on what’s hot in the entertainment industry, quick wit and the occasional mile-a-minute rant. 

Soni will be our resident roving presenter. You can catch her on Capital In The Morning, The Fuse, The Jam or The Hype.You can also catch her travel escapades and experiences on Capital Lifestyle.

June Gachui

Singer-songwriter, thespian, aspiring dancer and a member of the improv comedy troupe “Because you Said so!’ June is one of Kenya’s most sought-after entertainers who performs with her entire being.

Those who have listened to and watched her can attest to this and you can expect the same energy from her on the Jam alongside alongside Martin Kariuki every Monday to Thursday from 3PM to 7PM.

Wanjira Longauer

A film graduate and published writer, who bought a one way ticket to Nairobi, Kenya in early 2014. Just three weeks into her move, she secured a contract at one of the largest media houses; Capital FM Kenya where she hosted a mid-morning rock show full-time for several years.

Wanjira is passionate about and driven by humanity, justice, compassion and success against all odds. This young woman has always been drawn to compelling stories about the harrowing tales of survival, the curious or bizarre, and anything which relates to building Africa. Asked what she thinks so far, she says she has barely scratched the surface.”

She’s back at Capital FM and you can catch her on Believe the Hype every Monday to Thursday from 7pm to 10pm.
