Kojo and Jade leaving Capital XTRA breakfast

Kojo and Jade, who have been hosting the breakfast show on Capital XTRA for the last two years together, are making way for a new breakfast show in the new year.

Capital XTRA owner Global will make an announcement soon about the new programme, but for now, the two presenters will be on weekends only. Kojo will host a new Saturday breakfast show 6-9am and Jade will continue to present Sundays from 4pm. Manny Norte will cover Capital XTRA In The Morning until a replacement is found.

Kojo has been on the show for almost five years, and will return to his first love – comedy. He said: “It is with sadness & excitement that I announce the time has come for me to leave the Capital Xtra breakfast show and my last show will be on Christmas Eve.

“It’s been nearly 5 years waking you all up in the mornings and I’ve loved every second of it. I would like to thank all my amazing bosses who understood & shared my plans for the future & my co-host Jade Avia for helping me on the show for the last 2 years.

“I have new exciting commitments on the way as well as getting back to my first love, stand up comedy on an international level.”

A Capital XTRA spokesperson told RadioToday: “Kojo has decided to leave Capital XTRA In The Morning to concentrate on other projects. Kojo and Jade will present their last show on Wednesday 24 December. We are pleased to say Kojo will be moving to a new weekend slot, time to be announced, and Jade will continue to present on Sundays from 4pm.”
