Wachana Na Wakanai! Meet Captain Kale Who Has A Lot To Say About Women Who Call Maina Kageni To Air Their Grievances

Most men have complained to Maina Kageni about him not always talking on issues concerning men and rather prefers talking about what women go through in the hands of their men and their marriages in general which is not true, because he always tries to balance the issues.

We were used to a caller by the name Wakanai, who always called to abuse women who aired their grievances to Maina Kageni on Classic 105. His hate for women was too much and this left many women hating him as well.

Meet Captain Kale, who has now followed the trend. Most of his calls are always based on harassing women and even abusing them.

In one of the morning conversations aired about a week or so ago, a lady called to say how her husband owed her 4.2 million shillings and she was waiting for him to pay her back before she left him and this issue did not go well with Captain Kale.

This is what he had to say, “Women are just in these marriages because of money and even if they get hurt by anyone that comes from Karen or Runda, they will stick around just because of money kama kupe. I wonder when this women will start living their own lives and start providing for their children without their men’s support. Where did the rain start beating them? A man cannot take you if he does not love you.”

In another conversation, he said its better to tell someone that you have fallen out of love than cheating on her. He described women as dogs who can ‘chochea’ you to believe something. “Women should draw the line and change themselves”

Captain was so annoyed with a woman who called Maina to tell him how she has been helping his man for twenty years because he didn’t have a job. He thanked the woman for helping the man but disagreed with the lady for letting the public know that she has been helping this man with their upkeep.”How many men help their wives and they keep it a secret? A woman should help his man. We are their kings and very few in this world. Our children are all ours and not mine alone so she should chip in. A man should be assisted in the house.”

Captain concluded saying, “Women suffer from verbal diarrhea. Mdomo ya mwanamke haiwezi fungika, inakuwanga open tu. There are no men like Kenyan men. They are just using lots of English words for nothing.”

Why Kenyan Women Do Not Date Broke Men

Women love being classy and being provided for whether they are working or not. The women of nowadays can never inspire to be housewives because they want to feel their own sweat and their hard earned money from the work they do.

Here are reasons why Kenyan women would never date broke men:

  1. No woman wants a looser.

It is  every woman’s dream to get whatever she wants from her man. She has to be proud of you and even introduce you to her colleagues, but when you have nothing to offer her, the woman will surely leave you and go get a man who knows what he’s doing.

2. Women want men to pay their bills.

The expectation of a woman is that she gets a man who will pay her bills like paying for her hairdo, paying for the drinks when they go out and a man who will surprise her with gifts. When a woman sees what you do for her, she will also spare her money to treat you once in a while but if you cannot pay her bills then you will never have her.

3. Inheritance.

When you pass away, your money will be hers and your children and that’s why they go for rich men since they know they will be left with something when you are no more. If you are broke, this is something that you will not be able to give your woman making her leave you for someone much better that you.

4. Women want to be identified with class.

Have you ever wondered what women discuss when they go out? Well, you will be shocked to learn that they always discuss about their men and other topics and if you are not rich, then you will feel left out because they are always identified with class on how they carry themselves and the people they associate with.

5. Kenyan women want men who can provide for them.

A man can provide for a woman with so many things including a shoulder to lean on when all is not well. The Bible says that men are the providers because they are the head of the family and it is their responsibility to provide for their women whatever they want as long as the things they want can be provided.

Well, if you are a broke man then you must prepare to work hard in order to keep your woman from eyeing someone else who can provide for all her needs.

Prezzo Opens Up About His Life And The Lessons He’s Learned Along The Way

Despite him being a bully and killing us with his swag, Prezzo was born at Pumwani Hospital and raised in Eastleigh, Muyuyu section one until he turned ten.


During an interview on Talk Central, the king of blings remembered the life of being brought up in Eastleigh because it taught him the street life and its the kind of place even at ten or eleven at night is as good as day time and guys are up and about.


Being brought up by a single mother, Prezzo describes his mother as the love of his life because she has  been there for him ever since his father passed away and this is what caused the close bond between mother and son.


Whatever he needed, his mother would do everything to make sure he has it to avoid him going on a hunger strike. He later realized how his mother was struggling to make sure he attends school and to make sure she gives him what he wanted. His father passed after being with and his mother had a debt to pay at Nairobi Hospital.


In the beginning of his career in music, his mother was so affected with all the negativity about her son and he decided to sit down with his mother and explain to her that he is a public figure and such things are bound to happen and she should try and adopt to them.


He further said, “I have no regrets for some of the things I have seen written about me reason being whatever it is that you go through being good or bad is for a reason. I don’t believe in coincidence. There is no such thing in this world like coincidence. Its God’s grace.”

Prezzo added that his past women became famous when they were with him and he still talks to some of them. “I talk to Huddah because she is cool and we go way back. I know she go my back. Vera once in a while. The rest of them, No.”

Speaking about his marriage to Daisy Kiplagat, he said, “Marriage life was good and the best part of it is that I got a beautiful baby girl out of it. Daisy loved Jackson Ngechu Makini and she hated Prezzo. I spent so much time into building Prezzo brand and I could not drop it. I have never used drugs in my life.”

This is why Janet Mbugua rarely shares sweet family moments

Is there such a thing as oversharing one’s personal life? You be the judge.

This seems to be one of the concerns expressed by former TV girl Janet Mbugua in a message she penned down recently.

The stunning beauty is a mother to cute son Ethan Huru and she is also a wife to hunk hubby Eddie Ndichu. The family always light up social media when they are spotted together.


Unlike her counterparts who flood social media with photos of family moments, Janet holds back with what she calls a very good reason.


Family is very important to Janet and her fans are always left wanting to know more about them. The Inua Dada Founder and handwashing campaigner is now letting us in on a big secret.



She has finally opened up why she is always reluctant on sharing her family photos online.

She said, “I’m not huge on sharing family photos, not all the time at least. I may occasionally do so on my Inta Stories. But this here is a real moment. Shared laughter, in between moments of fatigue, being cranky, not always being sure of what I’m really doing, or my methods, when it comes to raising a new family! I’m learning that this life, balancing all things, is far from easy. It can consume you and sometimes you just need a moment, away from people and projects, to conquer the everyday good and bad. Seasons and phases, which not everyone will understand. But ultimately, it’s a most fulfilling life, abounding with lessons that will certainly better me. Hands up if you feel me!

Her fans appreciated her remarks with the following responses;

elsie_essie: They grow up so fast!!just the other day he was so little…Good work mama🙌🙌it’s never easy raising kids…my lo is 6months #stillLearning

lynne_ngugi: I think my secret is just not to over think it, live one day at time, share moments and just live. My daughter is 2.3 and another miracle on the way by end of next month.. Ild go crazy if I gave things as much thought as I probably should. One day at time. You’ve got a great family.. And thanks for being a woman I can look up to!

idah_alisha: Aawww my love! I don’t know what’s more beautiful… that message or the people in the picture… you are doing good mammi! Keep it up I will need tips from you in the maybe near future! #ProudOfYou

mkawajombaagnes: Each day brings new joy. Never will you have a dull day. You shall never be a pro in raising a family

alex_cos_mas: Some women have five kids and they soldier on Janet. There is no formula just God’s grace.

bigfreddy45: Intentional parenting. Its very hard. But its got to be done.🖒






Dear Slay Queens DON’T DO THIS When You Go Out

You will always know when the weekend is approaching for the relaxed atmosphere that hits Nairobi. Everyone makes sure they find out what the ‘plan’ is just so that they can be ready to paint the town red.

From college girls to the busy working mum, here is some piece of advice that I think you should consider before stepping out.

You’re welcome:

1. Putting on short dresses

I think this depends on where you are hanging out. Will you for instance be able to dance when you hear despacito? Some Kenyan clubs are known to be frequented by perverts, and wearing a ka -mini may send the wrong signal. Although I do remember there was the street protests dubbed my dress my choice. We know those with yellow-yellow thighs want to show them off.



2. High Heels

Have you ever walked behind a girl with super high heels in town and seen how she struggles? Keep in mind that our pavements in town are uneven and you may trip and embarrass yourself. Flats, or those baby doll shoes common with Nairobi girls will do.


3.Too much makeup

This is not the opportunity to try on the huddah makeup you stocked up on girls. A lip gloss will do, and lay off the eyebrows, there are enough scary looking eyebrows walking the streets of Nairobi. Plus your dude will be too polite to tell you that you have done too much. You also could be dating a guy who prefers au naturale girls.

make up

4. Do not eat too much

Especially if it’s buffet, where it’s all you can eat. That little black dress you wore will surely burst, then again no one wants to see a bloated belly, girls. Also stay on your lane and eat what you’re familiar with, lest your tummy rumbles and you have to dash to the bathroom when things get thick.


5. Avoid drinking something you’re not used to

I’ve heard many stories where just because a dude is buying, you think it’s time to try those posh drinks you’ve never consumed. Shock on you when you get drunk and misbehave. Lesson here, ka lane yako. If you’re used to guarana, stick to it, otherwise you will be a mess and trust me it will be hard to land a second date with that dude, if ever you hoped for one.


6. Carrying big purses

Kwani umebeba nguo za kulala? Big bags are a no-no girls. Here’s why: you only need to carry a few items therefore ditch the cucu style bag.



‘I’m too Wise To Live A Fake Life’- Akothee Flaunts Her Parent’s House

The famous singer Akothee who is known for her hit songs such as Baby Daddy, Yuko Moyoni and Sweet Love is known for her flamboyant lifestyle with some people saying that she likes attention and wants people to know she has money.


Despite this, Akothee has stood tall on her feet enjoying her hard earned money through her music career and her famous Akothee Safaris Company.

The mother of five works hard to see her children have a bright future ahead of them and makes sure they do not go through whatever she went through in her past life while growing up. She is very protective of her children’s welfare.


Being a well known artiste, she has other capabilities like cooking for herself and even going to the farm, something that most musicians cannot do in their life.

Akothee took to social media to express her feelings and thoughts of how men spend their money seducing  women at club not thinking of what kind of environment their parents live in.


She said, “I can courageously walk into my parents compound and park my big car in front of their house without any guilt , I can slay and travel business class knowing my parents are sleeping in a cool place , I might seem mad to you , but just know this idiot is too sharp and focused in life, loosers will say am proving a point , cowards will say am a ritualists, unlucky ladies will say money from sponsors , Lazy men will call me a prostitute for having children & failed relationships , never mistake knowledge for wisdom , am too wise to live a fake life , this is me, take me or live me , you are allowed to be proud of your accomplishments and admire your efforts , if you feel am bragging then just wait , I havent offended you yet , there is nothing to brag about here , I havent arrived in my comfort zone , when I will land there! then you will know😂😂 that I have surely arrived , the rate at which I will brag😂😂😂😂 even God knows! thats why its taking too long to reach there 😂😂😂😂, Even Amerka will know that maskini amepata 😂😂😂😂 nitawasumbua mpaka panadol ziishe kwa duka 😂😂😂😂most men carry bundles of money to seduce women in the club , they drive big cars and living in mansions in runda, lavington etc , but have no idea of where their parents live , this kind of men carrying loads of money in clubs dont entertain me at all ,because money stays in the bank or on investments , men with money look broke in the clubs because they know the value of money , this spraying money in clubs are broke n****s , tell them to take you to their village you want to say hi to their parents 😂😂😂😂😂, sijataja mutu, kama hayakuhusu usiyasome , kama yatakukera pia pole , kila mtu angangane na hali yake.”

Here are some of the reactions from her Facebook fans:

Del-vee Omondi: Go for everything they said u can’t have
Alicia Akoth: Akothee I wake up everyday and look for your post coz they inspire me, I pick what’s best for me and work with it, haters she is not gonna stop any time soon, the best u can do is, if u cant beat her, join her and u will learn a lot from her. She might be talking carelessly but all the same ,every time she types, she types the truth as it is.
Mercy Nyerere: I admire you mummie. Tell them damn haters.Go go madam boss.
Emmah Wanzalah Wanzalah: Akothee says watch out for men who drive big cars and trsh money in clubs in the name of buying drinks hey guys they are broke nigas….which is very true show me your parents home and I will tell you your lifestyle….watu watunze wazazi.
Yao Baba: only poor people,thieves and cons with low selfesteem post their cars and houses on social media. The day equity boss Mwangi start posting such nonsense,ill know it legit.
Kagonya Muhenge: Akothee in many words is just passing across a very simple message. Take care of your parents in the rural areas even as you floss to the world. Some here ride in big cars and wear designer clothes and accessories yet their parents live pitiable lives.

Here’s What You Didn’t Know About Huddah

Socialite Huddah Monroe aka Alhuda Njoroge has not always had it easy according to her.

While she flaunts her wealth and lavish lifestyle, she revealed she was born in Eastlands, Huruma. Yup from grass to grace.



Huddah Monroe rose to fame in 2004 after she clinched the coveted slot of representing Kenya in the Big Brother Africa-BBA reality show in South Africa.

Speaking to K24, Huddah narrated how she was brought up.

She grew up both in Huruma then later in Kitengela away from the city. Her life in Huruma was not hard because she had her cousins and relatives who were very protective of her which made it easier for her to get to know other people. After leaving for Kitengela, she used to go back to Huruma because her  grandmother still stays there. Huddah grew up in a home where domestic violence was prevalent and that’s where she got her thick skin plus having four step brothers. Sadly she also revealed how her step father would drink, and come back home, kick the door and start beating up her mum.

Huddah had to be confident going to school, knowing things are home were not well. Unfortunately she would be mocked by fellow students, and when she came from school she would tell her mum about it. Her mum was very supportive, giving her advice that such was life and she should not care whatever people say as much as she was going through a tough time and this was how she became stronger.

This has strengthened Huddah so much that she is able to handle whatever her haters said. She said “Haters are the best people because they help you grow. They pay more attention to you”. 


School was everything for her and after high school she decided to do a Diploma in programming because she was so much into IT. Plus she saw how her mum was struggling to get money to pay for her college. But she didn’t stay long in school and dropped out to allow her younger siblings to continue with their education.

She decided to be a video vixen with her friends as part of having fun. Her first video was with Jaguar in the song Vuka Boda. Huddah met so many people, some of whom were into drugs and influenced her to use drugs.


She was just 18 when she picked the habit. But at 21 years, Huddah quit drugs upon realising the effect it had on her friends some of who died from overdosing..

How did she change her life? She moved out, changed her phone number and the rest is history.


The richest man in China, Jack Ma, coming to Kenya. Read his remarkable story

He recently made headlines after his visit with US President Donald Trump and subsequent announcement of his assistance in creating 1 million jobs in the United States. He has inspired and empowered millions of people around the world especially with his incredible and true rags-to-riches story and now, Kenya will have the privilege of hosting the sensational Chinese billionaire, Jack Ma.

According to Forbes, Jack is worth an estimated $29 billion and this includes his 7.8% stake in the Alibaba Group — China’s answer to Amazon — and close to 50% stake in the payment-processing service, Alipay.

Although Alibaba and Jack Ma aren’t household names outside China, it’s worth noting that Alibaba is worth more than Facebook and processes goods more than eBay and Amazon combined!

What’s his story?

Ma Yun a.k.a. Jack Ma is among the rare breed of self-made billionaires with humble beginnings. Born in Hangzhou, south-east China, he was raised alongside his elder brother and younger sister at the rise of communist China and its isolation from the Western regions. His parents were poor and made a living as traditional Musicians-Storytellers. That income wasn’t adequate to have them even considered as middle class at the time.

Rejections and failures

Without money or connections, the only way Ma could get ahead was through education. Jack Ma failed in his Primary School examinations twice! He failed thrice during his Middle School exams. When applying to universities after his High school, Jack failed the entrance exams twice, before finally joining University. He even applied and wrote to Harvard University ten times about being admitted – and got rejected each time.

He graduated in 1988 and started applying to as many jobs as he could.

Jack tried and failed to get a job at a several places after applying to them about 30 times in total! He once recollected at an interview, “When KFC came to China, 24 people went for the job. Twenty-three people were accepted. I was the only guy who wasn’t.”

He was also one of the 5 applicants for a job in Police force and he was the only rejected being told, “No, you’re no good.”

“When KFC came to China, 24 people went for the job.  Twenty-three people were accepted.  I was the only guy who wasn’t.” – Jack Ma

At one of his interviews, when Jack was asked about his past rejections, he stated “Well, I think we have to get used to it. We’re not that good.” Naturally, he learned to overcome the pain of rejection and how to treat rejection as an opportunity to get better every time.

Learning English

When former US president Richard Nixon visited Hangzhou in 1972, there was an increase of tourists in his home-town. It was like a tourist Mecca and Jack wanted to make the most of it. He always wanted to learn English. He spent his early mornings riding his bike to a nearby park and at the city hotel, he met visitors and gave them tours for free in exchange for English lessons.

It was then he met a tourist who gave him the nickname ‘Jack’ because she found his name “difficult to spell”.

After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in English, he worked as a teacher at Hangzhou Dianzi University and earned just $12 a month!

Computers, the Internet and technology

Jack was captivated by the internet when he first used it during a trip to the US in 1995. He had just begun a translation business and he made the trip to help a Chinese firm recover some money. His first search online was “beer” and surprisingly, he found no Chinese beers in the results. It was then that he made a decision to found an internet company for China.

His first two ventures failed but four years later, he got together 17 friends in his apartment and convinced them to invest in his vision – an online marketplace he called “Alibaba.” This website allowed exporters to list products which customers could buy directly.

Screenshot / The Crocodile in the Yangtze

Initially, Alibaba hadn’t a single penny from outside investors but soon got attention and raised $20 Million from SoftBank – a Japanese telecom company that also invests in technology companies and another $5 Million from Goldman Sachs in 1999.

Building trust among the people of China that an online system of payment and package transfers is safe was the biggest challenge Jack Ma and Alibaba faced, a challenge that Jack will cherish for life.

Fast forward to 2005, Yahoo invested $1 billion in Alibaba in exchange for close to 40% stake in the company. This massive for Alibaba — at the time it was trying to beat eBay in China — and it would turn out to be a big win for Yahoo as well, netting it $10 billion in Alibaba’s IPO alone.

At an interview, Ma told Bloomberg that he knew Alibaba had made it big when another customer offered to pay his restaurant bill.

“I’m your customer of Alibaba group, I made a lot of money and I know you don’t make any money,” said the customer. “I’ll pay the bill for you.”

The company’s $150-billion IPO was the largest offering for a US-listed company in the history of the New York Stock Exchange at the time. It also made Ma the richest man in China, with an estimated worth of $25 billion.

This made Ma an extremely wealthy man though he has made very few flashy purchases and he still maintains some pretty modest hobbies. “I don’t think he has changed much, he is still that old style,” Xiao-Ping Chen, a friend of Ma, told USA Today in an interview.

He likes reading and writing kung fu fiction, playing poker, meditating, and practising tai chi.

After the IPO, Alibaba employees threw a huge party at the company’s Hangzhou headquarters in celebration. Ma told employees at a press conference that he hoped they would use their newfound wealth to become “a batch of genuinely noble people, a batch of people who are able to help others, and who are kind and happy.”

Ma’s visit to Kenya

Ma’s visit to Kenya is scheduled for July 20 where in the morning hours, he will engage entrepreneurs at NaiLab who will have a fireside chat with Jack on “The role of small businesses in global trade”

In the afternoon, he will lead a delegation representing Chairmen and CEOs of leading companies in Asia. Industries represented will include: ecommerce, financial services, health, real estate, technology, and pharmaceuticals.

The objective of this busiess-to-business session will be to introduce Chinese and African leading business players to cultivate mutual understanding and initial relationships.

It will also serve to present and discuss the key opportunities and challenges facing the future development of the economies in Africa and the special role that technology, education, entrepreneurship and young people can play.

They Want To Kill Me!!! Rapper Who Was Arrested By Magufuli Fears For His Life

Nay Wa Mitego also known as Nay Trueboy, a Tanazian rapper has come out to speak, days after he was released from jail for insulting President Pombe Magufuli.

His new track Wapo is one that seems to talk about politicians that use and traffic drugs and are never talked about. Nay goes ahead to say that there are politicians who have been forging their certificates.

5 Times Magufuli Has Hit The Headlines For SHOCKING Reasons

Who rans Tz?….Pombe.

Dr. John Pombe Joseph Magufuli has been driving most Tanzanian celebrities crazy. He has been identified as a no-nonsense human being with his government illegalizing things left, right and centre.

 Apart from the fact that he came to power with alot of strictness, many have seen the wrath of Pombe. Here are the most unbelievable things the Tanzanian president has shocked many with;

He Warned Socialites

You must be wondering why a whole President would concern himself with socialites, right? Well, Magufuli’s government put a warning to socialites who sell their bodies on social media. I mean those that post nudes on the gram. It seems the warning has since fell to deaf ears!

Banned Mini-Skirts

With all the drama that came with this new President, of course people had to fake some things. Well, Magufuli was rumoured to have banned mini skirts in Tanzania. According to the ministry of affairs, he had only banned it in a certain region to curb HIV/AIDS. The people in that place must have been notorious for a prezzo to take such a step. Well, Zari Hassan and many must have rejoiced to continue rocking their dressing when this rumour was debunked.


Arresting A Rapper

Magufuli’s government recently arrested rapper Nay Wa Mitego also known as Nay Trueboy saying that he released a song that was insulting the president. After days behind bars, Pombe ordered his release and claimed that he loved the song. That’s quite confusing, right? The rapper who is set to release a video for the song might be reconsidering removing what he said about Magufuli in the song wapo.

“Hakuna cha mtu aliye maarufu, hakuna mwanasiasa, hakuna askari, hakuna waziri au mtoto wa fulani ambaye akijihusisha aachwe, ata angekua mke wangu Janet hapa ambaye angejihusisha wee shika tu peleka. Kwa sababu madhara ya dawa za kulevya kwa taifa letu yamefikia mahali pabaya. Haiwezekani kuwa watu wanauza kama njugu”


Arrests Acting Minister

Magufuli sacked Information Minister Nape Nnauye without notice. Immediately after a new minister was named, the sacked minister addressed the media from his car at a hotel he was barred from entering by the police. Nnauye confirmed that he was not consulted before his replacement.
