How long have you been with your man and why hasn’t he married you yet asks Maina

 

On the morning conversation on Classic 105, it was all about how ‘Ladies mumechomewa picha’ by Manu Chandaria.

Mzee formalized his mariage last week after 64 years of being together. They went to the AG’s office, signed a piece of paper and spent 9k and went back home.

Mwalimu questioned why Kenyan women are always in a hurry to marry men.

 hii haraka ni ya nini many Kenyan ladies want to marry so quickly. They take men mbio why the hurry why do they rush us so fast, where is the hurry?

Maina wasn’t convinced with this argument demanding to know how long women should take before asking for commitment.

if you don’t make your man commit, what do they do?

What are you doing with a man for seven years and he is not marrying you, how!! shouted maina

Do you know the kind of life that Manu Chandaria has given that woman? She has lived like a queen for those 64 years!

No no no they started from the bottom argued Mwalimu

Maina opened up debate to listeners on air and those online to contribute.

Ladies how long have you been with a man? A woman should never move into a woman’s house before marriage, you can build chemistry out there.

Ladies why have you been with a man for so long without getting married?

What are you doing in a mans house for five years giving him babies, aieee!!

How long have you been with your man and why hasn’t he married you yet?

A man called in with some deep thoughts

Why are you helping people who can’t help themselves, they bring themselves to us, and then they sit there like a tick. Kenyan women are gold diggers, they stick like ticks they don’t want to move out, they mark their territory and so they can’t be helped. We won’t marry them.

Another man said

I call it the emancipation of the boy child, finally we have a trick as a boy. I don’t have to marry her until I’m 100, I don’t have to sign papers, I am in a long term relationship about six years, and I don’t intend to marry her, let’s build a future together first, there is no hurry

Maina was astounded by his confession and advised his unidentified woman,

‘If your that’s your man, woman you are living a wasted life, sweetheart your are not a wife you are a maid with no options, six years and he has not married you ,what is he waiting for jesus christ to comeback?

If it’s been two years and he’s not talking of a future together, he is wasting your time, If he doesn’t even give you an engagement ring he is wasting your time, if he is living with you and doesn’t marry you he is wasting your time

Male caller

kitu ya kujiuliza ni moja tuu what was the objective of being with this woman? If it was children why waste money marrying her, we don’t just do things with no objectives in mind, like me let me not cheat you, you will never find me in a car written just married. I have better things to do with my money, the definition of money is go to her parents and that story ends there si they know me? This stupidity of marriage is useless, concentrate on life, she is here hearing em and I am not shaken, she is standing here listening to me

Another man’

there is no Kenyan woman who will stand with you from the bottom up,

Another man

I don’t think it makes sense to have a wedding if we are living together already, I am not married at 35 I’m not dating and if that time comes I don’t think it will happen immediately it will come after two or three kids

The secret to scoring a second date? Share your dessert!

 

Some rely on charm or good looks, but the real secret to securing a second date is to share your food.

Psychologists at Leeds University analysed the dining habits of couples on the Channel 4 series First Dates, where potential partners are set up on blind dates in a restaurant.

They compared almost 60 dates where couples shared food with 49 who did not.

The overwhelming majority of those who tasted each other’s dishes agreed to meet again, against 42 per cent of couples who did not share.

Dessert was the most popular dish to split.

‘One person feeding another may represent ‘courtship’ feeding that signals sexual interest,’ wrote the researchers in the journal Appetite.

Diamond Platnumz puts to rest rumors why he hasn’t proposed (YET)

Diamond Platnumz and Tanasha Donna revealed that they are expecting a baby boy. This will be Diamond’s fourth child. He has two kids with ex-lover Zari Hassan and one with model Hamisa Mobetto.

In an interview with Tanzanian media at the backstage of Wasafi Festival, Diamond first spoke about why he didn’t propose to Tanasha;

I knelt down and kissed the bump and stood, people thought I had proposed but no. Everything has its plans, Tanzanians like to predict things and I don’t like to be predictable. I didn’t want my engagement to be done in a place like that.

diamondplatnumzinClassic(1)(1)(1)(1)

Adding that;

I just wanted it to be my mother and lover’s birthday for them to just enjoy. That event will happen. That wasn’t the right day from the way I want to propose to my girlfriend. So many people have done it like that and now it’s outdated.

 

He says the baby show is underway and fans should wait for the another big event;

Smoking can occur in two ways which are passive and active. Passive involves taking smoke from the environment while active involves direct inhaling of smoke to your body. However smoke has negative impact to your body especially the lungs.

Picha inayohusiana

 

Other effects include;

Lung cancer

Smoke is the greatest threat to the lungs. This is because it infects the oxygenated air leading to breathing problems.

Smokers of light cigarettes suffer same fate as those who use traditional ones

Infertility

This negatively affects men ability to perform in bed, while it can cause cervical cancer for women.

Blood clotting 

Smoke can cause blood clotting as it invades the blood vessels. This lowers the rate at which blood circulation occurs in the body.

Blood cancer

Smoke contains some bacterial substances that once they invade the blood, it becomes infected. People who smoke a lot are likely to get leukemia compared to those who don’t smoke.

Do Kenyan men understand the meaning of being given a second chance asks Maina Kageni

Yesterday in some peoples eyes, a miracle happened and that was Esther Arunga who was staring down at 25 years in prison for admitting to lying to police.

People reckon she has been through enough, and needed a second chance.

Maina Kageni reacted to her 10 month sentence saying

That’s what you call a second chance and I want to ask a question coz Kenyans take so much for granted. Do Kenyans understand the meaning of a second chance. Do men understand the meaning of being given a second chance?

He contnued pointing out second chances are important

The biggest culptirts are men. You mess up and she keeps forgiving you and taking you back and you just don’t get it.

Ladies have you ever given a man a second, third and fourth chance and he just doesn’t get it. Do we understand the value of a second chances, do we understand the value of forgiveness.

Do men get it? This is the weekend you will disappear this weekend and reappear on Monday with the same excuse.

Why don’t men get the idea of a second chance guys?

What’s your story?

@moniqueKimm..

@ItsMainaKageni You keep calling a man when you’re newly wed but as time goes by these men harden us,second chances don’t exist any more cause they take your love for granted!That’s why women are giving up cause u can’t be lied on forever!

@Classic105Kenya#MainaAndKingangi

@pieremutongah27…

Replying to @kipskiplagat @Classic105Kenya and @ItsMainaKageni

Sometimes you just have to lie coz that’s what they want to hear. Lie when its necessary not always. Dont tell her everything also. 🙊🙊🤭🤭 #MainaAndKingangiv

This is the secret men use: they’ve got someone at a police station, coz they will switch off their phone and that cop will call you on Sunday to tell you come for your man and you will go and he will come out with one shoe, that’s what a lot of men do.
