Classic 105 Drive show presenters Larry Asego and Nick Odhiambo are surely the funniest pair of radio hosts one can ever listen to.
The hilarious pair yesterday hosted gospel singer Janet Otieno in studio for a segment dubbed 5 at 5. They asked her five random questions that no one else knows about her, and I must say she opened up, revealing what many Kenyans don’t know about her.
The ‘Napokea Kwako’ singer joined the two hosts in the afternoon, and she was blown away by how funny they are. They referred to her as ‘baby’, ‘her majesty’, ‘her gloriousness’. I mean with such endearing terms being thrown your way by two luopeans, how can one not help themselves but open up?
Here are five things you didn’t know about her
Question; What was your nickname growing up
Answer; Nyonyongo (ha ha..get your mind out of the gutter) I bet some of you are thinking of that song ‘Yesu Ni Nyonyo’ right? Janet clarified upon seeing the shocked look on Nick Odhiambo’s face. She said ‘ yani it means msichana wa Nyonyongo’.
Question; How was it working with Christina Shusho
Answer; It was easy, it was a good one. We actually did not plan for it. I think God had it planned. I went to Tanzania for my single, and she got to learn I was there, and she called and said ;Janet I think we should work together. That’s how our popular single ‘napokea kwako song idea came up.
Question; Things that your panning on doing next.
answer; People should expect more songs, also expect the official launch of napokea kwako.
Question; Nick of course wanted to know if she has a husband.
Answer; yes yes nimepata bwana. I have a husband on earth and in heaven.
The banter on this particular question is so hilarious please listen to it below. She also reveals whether she sings for her husband when summoning him to eat.Eish yawa.
Question; What is your ideal relax mode, holiday destination?
Answer; I like going out, kwasababu nikiwa Nairobi I’m not relaxed at all. I like going to Mombasa, Dubai uou know. I do get time ya kuenda kurelax abit.
Her parting shot? Tupendane, our tribe should be 254.
Comedian Churchill is the latest celebrity to be killed by an online blog. Kenyans are waking up to fake news that Churchill has ‘died’.
You can’t make this stuff up as TV host Jeff Koinange regularly says.
But seriously who is targetting our big wigs by doing this, causing so much torment to Kenyans and family members by putting out such horrible news?
The list of those ‘killed’ in the death hoaxes include Musician Jaguar, Former Vice President Moody Awori , Former President Mwai Kibaki, Actress Jacky Vike, Actress Brenda Wairimu, Singer Mr Nice and Nonini, and Radio personality Willy M Tuva.
Well this morning Classic 105 morning host Maina Kageni also disclosed that the same internet has killed him. Not just once, but three times. During his morning Thursday show, Maina disclosed to co-host Mwalimu Kingang’i how he has been a victim after learning through people that the internet had announced his ‘sudden death’.
“I died in Daresalam, I died in Kampala, I died in Dubai.’
“They (blogs) must give the whole picture of where you were driving or who shot you, or which bar you were at, with who, na unakufa tuu. I died a long time ago. Welcome to the land of the day”.
Listen to audio as he describes how he felt about such an announcement;

But aside from that, there is one topic on most Kenyans mouths, after a flurry of activities in Mombasa yesterday.
President Uhuru was in Mombasa to relaunch the Mtongwe ferry, and amidst drama with Governor Joho, the President made some remarks that outraged some, with others coming to the Presidents defense.
The President publicly scolded the Governor saying;
“Tufuatane na yeye tufanye nini? Mimi sio bibi yake, mimi sina haja na yeye (Why should we always engage each other? What for! I am not his wife and I don’t need him),”
Kenyans have taken to twitter to comment under the hashtag #JohoVsUhuru.
This drama has caught the attention of Classic 105 presenters Maina Kageni and Mwalimu Kingang’i. Maina has asked President Uhuru to call him for a small get together.
Why? You ask.
Maina believes having a ‘dabo dabo’ will help him relax.
Listen to the audio as he and Mwalimu give their hilarious take on the drama.

On today’s Classic Countdown, we sample music from the year that Bill Clinton was inaugurated as 42nd US President. From the likes of Sade to UB40, take a listen to these awesome songs that are sure to leave you with some great memories.
Kenyan music has over the years improved in terms of the fan base, and popularity.
In the last couple of years, some of the local artistes have propelled the industry to whole new levels, with the likes of Sauti Sol, Victoria Kimani, Eric Wainaina and Stella Mwangi, just to mention a few.
But before musicians such as Octopizzo and Elani, there were other old school artistes, some of whom are still in the game and going, while others just faded into oblivion, and sadly, others left us soon.
Back in the 80s and 90s, the Kenyan music industry was well represented by the likes of Kalamashaka, legendary singer E-sir, K-Rupt, Them Mushrooms, Fundi Konde, Mercy Myra, Nameless, Wahu, Jua Cali, Nazizi, Wyre, Les Wanyika and Nameless and others.
Most of these musicians were renowned artistes, and some of them like Nameless, Wahu and Jua Cali are still in the game but according to Nick Odhiambo and Larry Asego, there are those kinds of artistes who used to sing Kenyan songs that just didn’t make sense.
During their evening show Larry, Nick and Friends, the duo made fun of artistes who drop songs that don’t even have a meaningful message or sensible lyrics.
One of the Kenyan songs the presenters made a fun of was Manyake, which was sung by one hit-maker Circuit and Joel, as the funny guys said that he was suited to be chairman of National Cereals and Produce Board other than a singer.
This two are too hilarious. Listen to the rib-cracking audio below as they make fun of the songs.
It’s Thursday and it’s only right we throw it back in time, thanks to Mwalimu Kingangi’s segment on the morning show, KASHESHE.
If you were born in the 60’s and 70’s, you will know what Classic 105 Morning Co-host Mwalimu Kingang’i was talking about when he did this throwback. Do you remember when it was fashionable to wear cordroy jeans, when men un-buttoned their shirts to display their chest hair? Does this ring a bell?
Yup, even the ladies used pimplex on their faces to get rid of pimples.
Listen to Kingang’i joking about this Throwback Thursday with Maina Kageni.
It’s a sad Monday morning as Kenyans continue to mourn the death of Kwale Senator Boy Juma.
The late Senator Boy Juma Boy, who passed away in Nairobi yesterday, will be laid to rest in his Vanga home, Kwale County. The late Boy’s remains were transported to the South Coast yesterday Sunday.
Senator Boy has represented Kwale County since the 2013 elections.
He was once the youngest Member of Parliament in Kenya, when he succeeded his father, Juma Boy, as MP for Matuga in 1983.
He retained his seat in the 1988 and 1992 elections. He also once served as the Kanu Chief Whip.
Classic 105 Morning hosts Maina Kageni and Mwalimu Kingang’i, joined Kenyans in mourning the passing of the late Senator.
