About Alex Ndawula

Alwxander Ndawula was born in 1963 in New york City, USA. Following his father’s death, the family relocated to Uganda when he was just eight years.

He went to St Mary’s College Kisubi, then went to Nairobi before joining Namasagali for his High school and then Nakawa Technical Institute where he pursued Marketing far from his dream of Architecture.

Ndawula joined the deejaying profession in the 1990s when the FM mode had taken over the Kampala airwaves.

He began his radio career at Sanyu FM in 1993 and later joined Capital FM in 1994. He was briefly ‘fired’ in 2003 but later recalled due to public demand.

In 2017, Alex Ndawula announced his retirement from radio after working with Capital FM for over 20 years. A farewell party was organized in which the radio legend was reportedly gifted with a Toyota Prado and a cash prize of UGX 30million as gratitude for the years he had been at the station.

However, he would announce his comeback the following year 2018, this time joining Jazz FM in Ntinda, and co-hosting an evening show with his former co-presenter, Christine Mawadri.

Ndawula and Christine rocked the Capital FM airwaves in the 1990s and 2000s with the famous morning show, where they were later joined by Oualanyah Columbus.
