News of Ajedra dating Aisha started emerging about about three years ago.

He reportedly converted to Islam for her.

In the mid-2000s Aisha became a staple for the city’s morning routine, hosting the morning show on Kfm alongside Roger Mugisha of the infamous Shadow’s Angels.

The duo’s infectious studio chemistry, eloquence, comedy and creativity drove them to the top of the business.

Mugisha left KFM in 2013 and Aisha followed three years later.

Aisha tried out politics in 2016, jumping into the parliamentary race for Soroti Municipality albeit unsuccessful.

In 2017, she was named the spokeswoman of the National Forestry Authority (NFA) a potion she held until 2022 when she landed a new job as one of the assistants of Speaker of Parliament, Anitah Among.
