"I have always been one of the biggest entertainment media personalities in this country, I have always influenced the flow of entertainment and I do a lot of exclusive interviews, I do a lot of interactions with top celebrities. I do a lot of work when it comes to entertainment. I believe my work at Mpasho influenced my nomination," she said.
The media personality continued with her many praises for Radio Africa Group and stated that it was her 6th year since she joined the company.
"I like the opportunities that Radio Africa has offered me, I get to network and get experience and also get an opportunity to meet my favorite media personalities face to face and also travel a lot... this is my 6th year in Mpasho and what I absolutely love Radio Africa and am excited to be there," Kalondu noted.
Other than praising Mpasho she also gave credit to her grandfather since he was her inspiration to join the media industry.
