RS Elvis is one of the longest serving FM radio presenters having started his career while still at the University in 1994 on Radio Sanyu, the first private owned FM station. He made his mark as host of the Quiet storm, Hotmix and the RS top 20 countdown. There’s almost no show he hasn’t done, boasting having done the breakfast show for over a year, Jazz shows, country music shows, a few classical music shows, a gospel show, even a reproductive health talk show for two years. Highlight of his career is when he was hosted by VOA’s Rita Rochelle for a 30 minute live link at the beginning of his career.
If there was a job you’d rather be doing, what would it be?
Commercial Airliner Pilot. Or better still, Aeronautical Engineer. But the mathematics!!!
Movies or books?
Internet. You get more enlightened than a whole library of books!
What is the last thing you listened to?
Shaggy’s remix compilation on my Zune. I listen to him all the time.
I also like Ludacris, Destiny’s Child and Blu3.
Who would you most like to be stuck in an elevator with?
Angelina ‘luscious lips’ Jolie.
What’s your bed time: (do you ever sleep?)
I sleep very early (surprisingly). Except when I have to work late.
Home food or eat out?
She cooks like a pro chef. And besides, even if I ate out, she’d force the home food down my throat!!!
What’s the worst/most rebellious thing you did as a teenager?
My mum was a strict disciplinarian. Rebellion was a word I only saw in dictionaries.
Things I’ve learned from life:
Where in this world you most want to visit:
Everywhere. I like to travel. I would like to go everywhere. From Aruba to Zimbabwe!
You’d never be caught wearing:
I wear just about anything I want to. I’ve worn a dress to club before with a bunch of guy friends. Girls have it going for them. Dresses give you ‘breathing space’.
Do you believe size (of whatever is on your mind right now) matters?
It’s the size of the fight in the dog, not the size of the dog in the fight that matters!
In his own words:
I think Uranus is in my constellation!
Something no one knows about you:
I am a very shy person. Its just bravado that keeps me going. I am also very largely misunderstood and it pains the most when people you think are close are the ones misreading you.
If there is one thing this guys doesn’t like, its doing the laundry! *wink*
