Tik Tok sensation and former Tusker Project Fame (TPF) star Alvan Gatitu has landed a new radio job.

On his Facebook page Tuesday, Gatitu who is popularly known as “Alvan Love” announced he had landed a new radio gig with Trace Radio, a French-owned venture.

He will start the new job on February 1.

“Your Boo boo precious shnokums is on radio. Tune in from Monday 1st February. 95.3 Trace FM 6am-10am. Monday to Friday. Will you be tuners? If the Lord did it before He will do it again for you,” he said adding “It’s been 4years. I missed radio.”

Last when he worked as a radio presenter was four years ago. He worked with Family Radio 316.

In July 2020, Gatitu moved Kenyans to tears after publicly confessing he had been locked out of his house over arrears for several months.

On the morning which he went live of Facebook page narrating his woes, he had spent a few hours by a in a guard’s room far from his house.

“My landlady and landlord waliamua wako na shida zao na mimi nikae na zangu so mimi nililala nje (they decided they have their own problems and I have mine so I should sleep outside). Please note that as this was happening nilikuwa nimekatiwa maji na stima for one and a half weeks. Just trying to make ends meet,” Gatitu plaintively said in the video.

He detailed that even his closest friends despite reaching out to them for help, are not able to help him out because, they too, have problems of their own.

In the video, he says that he is not ashamed of coming out adding that he intends to end the shame and pretense that is part of celebrity life.

“There is a day that comes when you can’t put two and two together and even your friends will fail you, even the brightest fail at times. This is a message to everyone out there, I am here to remove the whole celebrity façade by keeping it real,” he opines.

Few days later, Kenyans of goodwill fundraised Ksh2.1 million shillings.

He thanked Kenyans for answering his call of desperation.
