Capital XTRA host Will Njobvu has explained his decision to leave the station.

On his Instagram page, Njobvu, who has also fronted a handful of documentaries and reality TV spin-offs, talked about why he's exiting the Saturday Breakfast Show after doing it for almost half a decade.

"As they say in showbiz, it’s a WRAP!" he wrote. "After 4 and a half amazing years - I’ve taken the tough decision to leave my Saturday morning show on Capital XTRA to focus on new opportunities elsewhere in broadcast & digital media.

"My love for radio started 12 years ago in 2012 when I joined my student radio station in Leicester, then went on to hospital radio in Harrow and a local FM station in Hertfordshire - so ending up on Capital XTRA as my first job in commercial radio has been a blast & a real blessing.

"Alongside my Saturday morning show, I've hosted Sunday afternoons, covered the Breakfast show and my earlier listeners will remember when I use to bring you guys the Love Island interviews and gossip… even a reunion show!

"This job kept my spirits high during lockdown, through Black Lives Matter & I got so comfortable with my listeners that I decided to open up about my sexuality for the first time ever on air (even though we know the closet I was in was see through & made of glass) But it was an amazing moment!

"Not only has this job helped me grow as a person, it’s helped me grow as a broadcaster. While my journey at XTRA is done, the Will Njobvu journey has only just begun... a big thanks to everyone who helped get me on this station and of course thanks to the listeners."

His last show on the station was today (March 3o).

Njobvu's announcement comes a month after Roman Kemp announced he was leaving Capital FM after eight years.
