Zambian Music Awards(ZMA) winner of the Best Male Radio DJ for 2016 Jackson Demus Phiri aka DJ Showstar has moved from HoneFM Radio to QFM with immediate effect.
The DJ who earned his fame through Hone FM by promoting the Zed Experience and engaging local celebrities into personalized interviews will now be among the many presenters of Africa’s modern radio.
His move to QFM comes shortly after Terence Makondo; one of the station’s versatile presenters announced his departure from radio to concentrate on other things.
While a lot of fans appreciate and congratulate DJ Showstar on his move, a larger part of his fans at Hone FM will surely miss the DJ’s creative approach to sustain listenership in modern radio. His popular shows featuring local celebrities in various discussions and promotions of Zambian music will vividly be missed and one hopes he carries the same spirit to QFM.
Last month, Showstar beat Sun FM’s Allan Mwale from Ndola and QFM’s Caristo Chitamfya who he will now work with, to scoop the ZMA’s best male DJ. He takes to QFM his love for Zambian music.
