Legendary DJ Sbu has announced his retirement from radio to focus on promoting new talent behind the scenes.

The award-winning media personality has delighted millions of listeners since the beginning of his radio career.

Recently, the DJ made history after breaking the world record for the longest marathon radio show ever, but now he feels it’s time to bring the curtain down on his illustrious career.

In an interview with the Daily Suns, the veteran DJ said:

My career has come full circle. It’s 20 years old. I’ve outdone myself. I didn’t think I would get this far. I’m retiring from the microphone to focus on mentoring new talent.

Speaking about achieving his dream, the legendary DJ said his dream was to host the longest marathon radio music show ever, which he accomplished when he hosted a non-top music radio program for 216 hours straight!

We hosted 216 hours of radio, which is about nine days of non-stop music radio. It was a challenging experience, even though we had practised.

The veteran now gets enough time to focus on his business in addition to nurturing young talent. He launched his own drink Mofaya 6 years ago, which recently celebrated its 6th anniversary and is doing well in the market.
