Is it normal for your spouse not to EVER meet your parents asks Maina Kageni


Even if you’d like to, you can’t avoid them forever. If you’re lucky, you only have to see them once in a blue moon. If you’re not so lucky, you find yourself needing to engage them a few times a year.

This formed the basis of the morning conversation on Classic 105, where Maina Kageni and Mwalimu Kingangi argued out their points of view.

Ladies why do you live with men, have their babies and they have never seen your parents
How do your parents know where to reach you?

You cannot live with someones daughter and you’ve never met them,

if you’re a lady in one of those arrangement do you ever ask your self what your mother thinks?

His co host Mwalimu Kingangi whispered Maina let me tell you something this a very sensitive topic, out of respect there are lives you need to create.

Not all the times some times you cannot encourage you go every weekend, si umeppewa?

Hao wengine ni wezi, we are talking about those wamepewa na they have takena while, sio kila othe weekend unaenda huko,

Here are comments from listeners, contributing their personal experiences and opinions on the topic.

There’s a reason as to why you’re called Mrs Kale, not the other way round,it simply means you belong to my family now, my parents are your parents. Your family members shouldn’t step in my house the way they want, only mine can

I know of my neighbour who at his wifes death, and these traditions of ours could not bury his wife because he had never even taken a spoon to his wifes home. that man never appreciated the wifes family.
I miss those days when our parents organised and planned marriages for us. Hizi tunapanga sisi wenyewe hazipangiki…
@ItsMainaKageni Women should know that if you haven’t seen your in laws then just know you’re not a wife full stop!! @Classic105Kenya #MainaAndKingangi

‘Why’? Maina Kageni whispers to Esther Arunga admitting to lying to protect husband

Former KTN TV presenter Esther Arunga admitted to misleading Australian police about her son’s death.
She told a court that she had gone to the bathroom on the night of June 17, 2014, only to come out and find Quincy hitting Sinclair in the stomach.
She said, her pastor, co-founder of Finger of God kept saying


The 38-year-old lawyer had lied to paramedics that Sinclair had fallen down the stairs.

Arunga is set to be sentenced on Thursday.

Esther Arunga admits to lying to cops about sons death to protect husband

Maina Kageni weighed in on the topic, asking women why they lie to protect their men.

I admire the loyalty aspect 100 per cent, but look at her she is facing sentencing for lying for her man, a forko jembe man, me if that happens I don’t know what I will do.

Esther Arunga and son Sinclair

Is this love or stupidity? Maina posed the question.

In this case where a man in your life kills your child and you lie for your man, how?

Girls, have you ever lied to cover up for your man?

And they are never good for you. Why do you defend them, Maina asked.

Should it matter how many men a woman has had before you asks Mike Mondo


Judging from online conversations and with friends, the question of lover statistics is as compelling as ever.

It is understandable to be curious what number you are but what will you do if you love this person?

Posh and class at Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru’s traditional wedding -Photos

Too many men are still raised to see bedroom matters as crude competition, in which bedding a woman who has already had a lot of lovers counts less than scoring with a woman who is “hard to get.”


But I think the average guy’s worry is simpler than that. The more men his girlfriend has slept with, the greater number of lovers to which she can compare his skills. It’s easier to win a contest against two than against 20, he figures. And even easier to rank first when he’s the only one to have ever played the game. No wonder so many men are obsessed with finding a virgin.

A woman called in and told her story.

I have been in 20 relationships

I haven’t found him yet and I can go through another 20 declared a defiant woman.
that’s how I can learn them I have gone through 20 of them and I haven’t found mine.

Shoud it matter asked Mike Mondo to which Mwalimu responded sharply saying

‘My husband’s side chick just gave birth to his child’ Cries betrayed city woman

You know you can have a masterkey but if you are a padlock it’s a problem.
Sasa what is she looking for Kingangi posed to Mike Mondo shocked she has gone through 20.

Congratulations Kingangi said

It’s good for a lady to maintain her values, you now when you go with a man they go with part of you spiritually so minimize that especially when you are a lady. The reason you see most marriages back in the day succeed is because the woman didn’t have many men.

But again, why is it so important to know an exact number? What difference does it make? Knowing whether a potential girlfriend has ever been in love before is important; discovering (slowly and patiently) how her past experiences have impacted her view of men (for better or worse) is important.

See the day Anne Waiguru’s hubby saved a Kenyan man’s shaky marriage

A male caller differed with men by siding with women on this issue. He said

Don’t be preoccupied with how many men she’s had. My cousin is those ladies who don’t like nonsense. She has been with more than 40 men in the past 15 years, so that should not matter whether she has had many men, just accept that she is with you. Why do we expect women not to have a past like men do?

Another female caller told off men shaming women

Stop being obsessed with my past that’s not your business, leave us alone and keep walking forward. I have 16 men actually probably more and they are all a problem. If I have to get to 100 men so be it. Kwanza Giriama men are terrible, it’s actually all Kenyan men you must sample. Hii kitu sio sabuni, haikwishi.

‘It will pay off one day’ Kenyan women defend dating many men



It’s more tricky for a woman to find Mr Right as opposed to a man finding Miss Right.

Those are the sentiments many female Classic 105 callers gave in response to questions about dating multiple men in their lifetime.

A lady called in yesterday talking about people being dumped over petty issues. She explained she would ideally want to explore a lot of men.

She defends her idea of kissing 100 frogs before finding her prince.

This life is all about moving on. You stick to one person you will never enjoy this life, sawa? This world is all about explore, not sticking with one, never, ..I have to explore many men, this world is about exploring, nijue this man is like this, so that if am in my 30’s I know better otherwise I can’t advise my daughter what to do.

Another woman called in saying

You can get married as many times as you wish and find happiness, and that only be done when you correct yourself, even a hundred times. It’s all about happiness, it’s all abut you.

This prompted Mike Mondo to ask

I want to know this morning is that the best way to find happiness, do you have to kiss 100 frogs before you find the one? Is that what you need to do as a woman nowadays?

Here are more comments over the topic

We learn by experience, on average a woman should go through a 100 men that’s when I can learn them, I have gone through 20 of them and I have not found him yet

Do you know why? It’s because it’s not easy to get a good man, okay since I was 26 I have gotten only one good guy and after that I find bad ones and since I have been with ten. I am not done seeing more men.


Why Kenyan women want men who earn six figure salaries


Do you watch the dating show Perfect Match on Ebru TV? Some episodes are so cringeworthy, and it’s all because of what the girls say.

The demands by the young girls to the fellas makes many upset. From wanting a man who drives a Range Rover, to wanting a tall, light skinned man.

Young women are not shying away from declaring that they won’t date a man without a car, or one who doesn’t earn six figure salary.

They have no time for a man who can’t provide for their needs.

Mike Mondo and Mwalimu Kinga’ngi discussed this on the morning conversation.

Mike described why he wanted to open up discussion about slay queen dating demands.

I want to share with you Kingangi, yesterday I went to my child’s school today and I meet these young ladies who were having this conversation that was so interesting it got heated.

They were saying they want a man to have a job, to make six figures, I want him to be driving, to be paying a mortgage.

I was listening and I asked them what about you. So you want all these from the men, what are you bring on the table. We got into this conversation. Isn’t it time men start making lists about women?

Yes you are pretty but aside from your physical attributes what are you bringing?

Those expectation that you put on men, what is it that you are putting on the table?

He opened up discussion to listeners and most who commented were women.

A woman said:

ehh tunaleta watoto so we are like the shamba you cultivate it uweke manure ukiweza fertilizer we carry your babies so that its the main thing in a marriage, we brign children. the key thing in a marriage children are very important, so he has to have everything a woman wants and she brings children, that’s why we are looking for men with six figures, and those who drive big cars na waende shule poa in fact I should go in that house with a leso only.

Another said:

‘I you see its been made for women to get tot that im talking froma point of experiecne you come in you support your husband you help him in everythign you build an empire you have property at the same tike you are a woman you are carryign children and then along the way ehen the an feels comfortable because you hae been supporting thim he goes for another women than he goes for a younger woman. what have men given back aothe than mpango wa kando

Divorced Kenyan dad’s bitter fight for child ‘kidnapped’ ten years ago

The narrative is all too common: man meets woman, they fall in love, that may or may not lead to marriage or a long-term relationship, woman becomes pregnant, a beautiful child is conceived.

Cute right? Alas, the relationship does not stand the test of time, as the fairytale would otherwise have us believe. Things happen.

What is perplexing, however, is the tendency for women to use their children as ammunition, as part of an intricate ploy to somehow strike back at their ex-partner.

This retaliation is often due to any wrongdoing [ongoing or not] that may have been committed by the man in question – be that adultery, stealing, lying, etc. Ridiculous, I know – yet all too real.

Read this long read from a man who confessed to Maina Kageni his miserable story.

Some years back in 2010 I got a son  with someone and the lady was a drunkard and we went to court abput child custody.

I happened to win the case after pushing for around three months, so after winning the case she was given access then she got advice form her sister ( the child was now around a year two months) she kidnapped the child then I happened to see the child after three years.

He explains why he has been unable to get tough on her for so long despite the law saying he should have the child

I did go looking for the child. I got a court order and I tried following up but she was never arrested by the police. They usually say it’s a legal case. She used to stay in her mothers place and it was not accessible. What would I have done I could go to the nearest police station but the gates were locked. I wish you can understand that when you don’t have an access like a place that is gated it’s hard to access and there is way you can break it.

I have not seem my son for nine years, the warrant of arrest is effective the women can’t be found, and the grandparents don’t want to see me. I have tried my level best.


Morning conversation: Mothers who deny fathers access to their children

A feature aired on KTN on Monday night called Breaking Bonds about Kenyan fathers denied access to their children by baby mama’s.

This formed the basis for the morning conversation on Classic 105 Tubonge Tuesday with Maina asking: By the time you have been denied access, what have you done?

Mothers who deny fathers access to children following a divorce or separation is a highly debated topic, often dividing Kenyans.

The Breaking Bonds feature was a harrowing thing to watch as the guys wept and said they way they don’t have money but can be there emotionally for their children.

‘Time heals all wounds,’ Bridget Achieng on why she forgave deadbeat baby daddy

Why would a normal woman who used to worship the ground you walk on say you can’t see your children? If you have been excluded from your children call me and explain Maina urged male callers.

Many fathers called in to explain why they don’t see their children.

This man recounted

Most women force pregnancies then they dump you and get your money. They are rotten tot he core.

Another said

Nowadays women have been turned out to be hunters. They are hunting us too much.

The one thing that makes Kenyan women shout at their men in public

Ladies why do you feel the need to shout at your man in public?

An article in a local daily dubbed ‘The angry woman syndrome’ formed the basis of the morning conversation on Classic 105.

On the morning conversation on Tubonge Tuesday, Maina Kageni sought to know why Kenyan wives are always angry and why they don’t care about shouting at their husbands in public.

A female caller narrated to Maina why she vents on the streets.

Huyu husband na wife wanakosana juu ya bedroom. Mwanamke anaambia mume ni bure, shida si pesa, ni hawa watu wawili kutoka kwa bedroom. Fuatilia Maina shida si pesa. shida ya hawa wanawake si pesa, mimi natimiza zangu na sioni hiyo shida.

Maina responded saying ‘I didn’t even imagine that would even be an issue. Wow. ladies you are not saying that are you? So it’s all there. is that it?

Maina and Kingangi discuss secret of how politicians win elections

Maina and Kingangi in the morning is normally the most interesting show on radio. The two spoke today about the recent Huduma Namba extension.

Maina said that before the president extended the deadline of the exercise, the registration centres were full to the brim but now that President Kenyatta had extended the period the centres were now empty.

The two noted that Kenyans will again fill up the centres just before the registration ends this week. This struck a chord with Kingangi and he had a revelation; that politicians win elections because they normally focus on the rural areas as those people are serious about following what politicians say.

Maina added that that might be the reason why Deputy President William Ruto spends a lot of his time in the rural areas.

Kingangi hilariously added that the people from mashinani already had their Huduma Namba’s on the 2nd day of the exercise! They, however, concluded that Kenyans should go for the cards sooner rather than later.

Is 16 years old enough to consent Maina Kageni asks

The courts have proposed lowering the age of s3xual consent to 16 from 18.

Three judges, Roselyn Nambuye, Daniel Musinga and Patrick Kiage, ruled that time was ripe for the country to consider changing the Sexual Offences Act, citing lengthy jail terms imposed on young men convicted of defilement. They made the observation in a case where they reversed a 15-year sentence slapped on a man who had impregnated a 17-year-old girl, according to the Standard newspaper.

Classic 105’s Maina Kageni posed this question of age of consent, asking if this is a debate we should have.

This week I was with  group of teacher who said I need to discuss this 

Mwalimu Kingangi wants to know why judge think 16 years is ok for Kenyan children to become s3xually active.

16 unajua huyo ni mtoto wa form two, you know when they are looking butt these things mtoto wa America ni mtu mkubwa lakini wa Kenya ni mdogo sana.

as a parent we are not having that conversation, 16 years ngai weh, that thing whatever they are trying to propose, wacha it should remain 18 infact 20 years.

What is your interpretation of the recommendation for the age of s3xual consent?

Is there a different reality on the ground? And must we accept that reality and what did the court of appeal judges see?

A male caller supports the courts recommendation saying

you know we are running away from reality the world has changed naona 14 would have been better, hao tunajidanganya

A female caller shocked Maina when she made a confession and said

I wouldn’t blame them because unfortunately actually kids even from the age of 9 are doing it, I am a teacher by profession and when we talk to them they tell us they know everything. we need to empower our children because when you tell them don’t do it they go and do it and find out. In my class I have thee nine year old’s who have already had s3x. so we need to empower them and give them knowledge.


Morning Conversation: How do deadbeat dads live with themselves

On Wednesday, the Classic 105 morning conversation was about the new court ruling, that will allow children born out of wedlock to access their inheritance.

Today Maina Kageni wants to ask men one thing about being a deadbeat father:

‘You know you have a child out there, and you have never sent a coin to support that child. How do you live with yourself?

The fact that you have a child out there, doesn’t it bother you, Maina posed to deadbeat fathers?

Mwalimu tried to convince Maina that these mothers push men away, that is why baba mtoto does not help.

‘wanakwambia you are not a role model to the child. Kwanza when the lady is a bit stable haaa utaonanga huyo mtoto kwa TV champions league.

you want to go see your child unakatazwa.’

Girls is there any truth to this?

Men called in to respond to the allegations telling Maina that women are to blame.

One man said:

‘ nimemuuliza fees structure na amekataa, bila hiyo silipi!


Another Caller:

“Me and my ex got a child together. Then she got a job which changed her a lot. Sai ata siwezi ona mtoto.

Augustine chemiat Mwotei said:

Maina what these ladies to us wacha tu. When i want my daughter to pay me a visit or aende kwetu excuses huwa mob na nadaiwa fee na shopping aje heri you stay vile uko maina

Noah from Kilgoris said

‘kuna mke tulipenda nayyey tukazaa mtoto mmoja, na kuongea na huyo mtot ni shida atat kuchukuwa simu yangu ni shida, hawa watu wakipayta kazi hata kusalimia mtot ni shida, hakuna siku. Sisi wanaume tunapitia vitu nyingi dunia hii.

Video of woman beating man in the streets of Nairobi causes outrage

Mwalimu is not a happy man this morning. We had this crazy outpouring of emotion when Nzomo was beating his wife in public.

He was hunted down and found where he was hiding, and according to Mwalimu no lawyer wants to handle his case.

Now this weekend another video went viral of a woman beating her man black and blue.

A man was this time being beaten by a lady. She was kicking and hitting him mercilessly because of Sh200. The kicks and blows were thrown to even his private parts and no one went to help that guy, why?

Mwalimu says no one is talking about that, and instead people are prising her.

So why aren’t we seeing as much outpouring of emotion right now as we did when Nzomo beat up his wife?

Mwalimu says a lot of men are being beaten by their wives. And that this lady has walked away scott free.


woman kicks man


Is it double standards? Who is going to help the boy child?

Girls, why are you beating your men?

How come no one caused an outcry this weekend when a video of a woman beating up a man went viral? Unlike Nzomo, no one knows this mans name or who he is is.

‘Hivyo ndo kunaendaga’ Kenyan man shocks wife after infecting her with HIV (AUDIO)

Niko sawa tuu’ is the one statement that men like to say when it comes to health and going to the doctor, regardless of the medical condition.

On Thursday on the morning conversation on Classic 105, a lady gave us  the most stunningly shocking statistics that on an average day out of all the people who go for voluntary testing, only one is a man.

On an average day the 25 people who go for voluntary testing, only one is a man.

This alarmed Maina Kageni who exclaimed;

‘So ladies, there you are taking care of yourselves then there are these lumps of diseases walking all over risking your health’.

Guys why don’t you like to get tested?

An angry woman called in and confessed the difficult moment she found out she had contracted HIV from her husband, who had kept quiet about his condition.

‘Mzee wangu alijua ni mgwonjwa na akanyamaza, so after two years mtoto alikuwa mgonjwa, na nikampeleke kenyatta, and it was discovered we are both positive’.

When she confronted him about it, he admitted with such a rude statement.

‘Aliniambia ati hivyo ndio kunakuaga. saa hii for the last ten years tunakunywanga dawa’.

Has she forgiven him?

‘No. it was hard to tell my child kwanini anakunywa dawa. lakini sija break hiyo news, bado tunaenda counselling’.

‘Alianza kutoka majiu, hapa nikasuspect kuna kitu. he started stinking like hell, na nikamwongelesha akaanza kukunywa dawa. saa hii, nimekuwa kama counsellor, ni ngumu sana kuongelesha wanaume’.

As a lady should you be worried by such?  Listen to the audio below of the conversation Maina Kageni had with men and women on the topic.

Is She The Lost Love? Diamond Platnumz reminisces about the one girl who rejected him four years ago

The story of Diamond’s life before the fame, should truly inspire those of us striving to make it.

He opened up about being a hawker, a fuel attendant and a host of other side jobs as he struggled to break it into the music world. He revealed his journey from grass to grace in an interview with Classic 105’s Maina Kageni, disclosing some major details about an ex girlfriend.

At the time when he was selling used clothes, he had a girlfriend named Sarah, who he described in the most loving way.

He even sang about her in his first songs dubbed ‘Nenda Kamwambie.

He said;

‘ Kamwambie was a real story of my life. Katika hustling zangu nilikuwa na dame mmoja hivi alikuwa anaitwa Sarah. Sarah alikuwa mwanamke mzuri, sana na wakileo, lakini mimi sikuwa na kitu mfukoni. kwa hivyo alikuwa ananipenda tuu anajiweka smart sana. na nilikuwa na ndoto nyingi na ahadi nyingi, ‘you know tomorrow I will be a star, tomorrow I will be this. So alikuwa ana amini naweza kuwa hivyo, lakini ilifika time akachoka so akaabiri azinguwe akaniwacha. akaniwacha akaniambia, ngoja nikuambie kitu, Diamond, at this point there is no way I can be with a person ambaye hawezi kumanage maisha yangu’.

In an emotional voice, he continued to narrate about Sarah, adding

‘Yani misiwezi kuwa na wewe direct, na akaondoka’.

Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz joined Maina Kageni on classic 105 for an interview. Pic courtesy Ivy Muthoni

To win her back, he tried sliding in her DM, but the constant calls to her were rejected.

‘Kukata tamaa siku nyingine nilimpigia simu nikampigia mara kwa mara akaniambia ‘you know what’ stop calling me because the more you call me the more you keep chasing my men away, who pay my bills, so I had to stop calling’.

‘So then I wrote the song ‘nenda kamwambie’. Imagine tulikuwa na uhusiano mwaka mmoja, coz she’s been my primary girlfriend’.

Check out the song he wrote for the girl he misses:

‘You beautiful woman’, Listen as Maina Kageni gushes over woman who revealed it’s never too late to fall in love at 52 (AUDIO)

A woman who spoke to Maina Kageni about why it’s not too late to fall in love in your fifties has impressed many.

The woman had a message for women about finding love in your fifties proving that falling head over heels in love is the best thing.

She admitted to being a 52-year-old woman who had for the longest time never found a man worthy of walking down the aisle with. She stunned Maina and shut down Mwalimu Kingangi, with the two being left speechless with her beautiful love story.

‘I am 52 and never been married, and now I want to be married to my 65-year-old boyfriend and move to Malindi’, she beamed.

Yes I’m 52, I will be 53 in July. I never found the right man until a year ago. Actually I’m gorgeous to tell the truth. I’ve been told I sound like a young girl but I’m not.

In fact I found him via a dating site. We met up, liked each other and we are getting married in July. He is 65 years and previousy married twice, he has four kids.

Maina could not hold back his joy telling her,’ I am so happy for you. I wish you all the happiness in the world and if you invite me I would love to come to the wedding.

‘I will tell you my email address and you will be able to save our number ok, my goodness where is your kayamba mwalimu kingangi. You beautiful woman, you you happy women you, oh you blessed woman you…’

‘oh may you have a happy marriage darling, blessed’, the excited Classic105 presenter finished.


Filisika ujuwe tabia ya mke wako: Listen to why Kenyan women would rather marry a ‘monied’ dude


The general consensus on social media is that for one to get married they must have money. But what’s wrong with a woman wanting to hook up with a man with money?

Just the same way a man can’t agree to marry a woman who can’t cook or clean.

If you don’t have money, pole fellas, Kenyan slay queens won’t give you a second look.

Why are Kenyan men complaining that women want a man with money? Mwalimu Kingang’i says woman are missing the bigger picture of looking at a mans potential instead of his wealth. That she should instead grow with him, perhaps staring out at Huruma before going to Runda.

Mwalimu insists that Kenyan women want money NOW. They want a man who is established. She simply won’t give you her time during your hustle and woe unto you if it doesn’t work out. Make the money and then approach her. That’s according to female callers who contributed to the conversation about why women are money minded.

I mean even the Sh200million jackpot Abisai’s girlfriend went back to him, after he won loads of cash.

If you don’t believe me, listen to the arguments between Classic’s Mike Mondo, his co-host Mwalimu Kingang’i and angry callers.
