Capital FM Live

Listen to Capital FM live online. Capital FM, one of the pioneer radio stations in Kenya, has been gracing the airwaves since the mid-nineties, providing listeners with a diverse range of content. From delivering the latest Kenyan news and breaking news to curating the best mix of music, business, and technology insights, sports coverage, and lifestyle features, Capital FM has firmly established itself as a go-to destination for a comprehensive radio experience.

Established in 1996, Capital FM was the second independent FM station in Kenya following the liberalization of the airwaves. Despite the subsequent emergence of several FM stations catering to diverse tastes, 98.4 Capital FM has maintained its popularity, particularly among the middle-class and upper-class markets.

A notable aspect of Capital FM’s history is its connection to the late Kenyan Billionaire, Chris Kirubi, who owns the station. The late Mr. Kirubi’s influence is reflected not only in the station’s ownership but also in its eclectic musical offerings. The station curates a diverse playlist, blending genres such as hip-hop, R&B, rock, neo-soul, new jack swing, jazz, techno, and dance, and proudly featuring Kenyan music.

Situated on the 19th floor of Lonrho House along Standard Street in Nairobi’s central business district, Capital FM operates from a strategic location in the heart of the capital city.
