My mom held a grudge against me for 25 years for this reason – Maina Kageni

Maina Kageni is one man who can honestly admit that he has risen to the pinnacle of his career. Maybe what makes him so good is the experiences he has had that have defined and molded him into the compelling individual he is.

Maina is very charismatic and a happy go lucky character on the radio who not only laughs easy but can also give a well-rounded opinion on a dime.

One thing that many of his fans and followers might not know is that he Mr. Kageni is also very private and loves keeping his personal life away from scrutiny.

Recently, the Classic105 presenter decided to peel back some of the curtain to reveal a bit more of himself in an interactive session with his fans on social media.

One of the things he told his fans was that he had had dreams of becoming a lawyer as a young man. Later on, when he went to the UK to study he didn’t finish his studies as he used his school fees for other ventures that didn’t materialise.

When those ventures failed he had to work as a truck driver and fish distributor for some Chinese firm to make ends meet.

These decisions he revealed made his lovely mom hold a 25-year grudge against him something he wasn’t aware of. “For the 25 years, my mum only forgave me last year.”

He added, “I ate all my school fees by living large in the UK. My mom found out and she was not happy with me until last year. She called me home and after dinner, she told me she had forgiven me for not going to university.”

During the conversation, his mom explained to him that it was her vision to see all her children become University graduates, something his mother had promised her late husband.

“My mom told me ‘Maina, if there is something I had promised your dad is that all his children would go to University.”
