He was all smiles today as he marks turning a year older. Coincidentally it is also his mums birthday, how cute is that?
Maina wa Wangui (as he likes to call himself sometimes) spoke to this writer about his plans for the big day.
He first took to his social media to post a heart-felt message about his birthday.
Dear God, to You be all the glory.
It’s my birthday today, 29 June. Here’s a throwback photo because God’s still got my back since then and to this very day!!!!
(Yes guys, yours truly is still very handsome, God-fearing and like fine wine, getting better with age.)
So what’s your birthday wish for me today?
An excited Maina couldn’t contain himself, revealing that he will be in Mombasa this weekend, where he’s taking his mum to celebrate their big day.
He has also bought a birthday present for his mum (listen to the audio ), saying she deserves to be spoilt. That’s one thing you need to know about Maina, He is a mamas boy, and is not ashamed to admit it.
As he turns a year older, here are some things you need to know about Maina Kageni
- He is a mamas boy
- He love his dabo dabo, which coincidentally he asked his co-host Mwalimu to buy him a 21-year-old whisky as a gift. How much is that?
- He does not have an English name. Yup, Maina says all his siblings only have Kikuyu names. Not believing him, Maina challenged Mwalimu Kingangi to find out from the government if it’s true or false.
- The latest song that he loves is Ed Sheerans ‘Shape Of You’
