13 years ago, Maina Kageni made the wildest proposal to Sanaipei Tande to have his baby. Unfortunately, she turned down Kenya’s most popular radio host.
Maina had wanted to have children and his ideal candidate was Sanaipei Tande, his workmate at the time for one silly reason.
Sanaipei was told by Maina that she would not work if she agreed to have his baby. Yes, he wanted her to stop working and he would financially support her.
The two met again last week and Mr. Kageni who has confessed for the longest time that Sanaipei was his crush re-ignited the topic that has long become a Classic105 pastime among listeners. He started out by praising her telling the former SEMA group how wonderful she looked.
“She is glowing, so voluptuous anakaa poa, why did you refuse to have my baby? I gave you a proposition in 2007. I was ready to be giving you half a million shillings a month, a house kwanza a house in Lavington and anything you wanted. Do you even know my mum had told me that if I get a child she will give me that house of hers in Lavington?”
The confession shocked Sanaipei who told him why she refused his baby mama idea.
“But you see Maina you told me If I never want to work a single day in my life, that was the proposition. But I am the type of person who has to work.”
Before she left the studio after the interview Maina gushed once more reminding Sanaipei that they have unfinished business, “Me I will call you later I talk to you about our little arrangement” to which Sanaipei half-heartedly agreed.
This whole back and forth has me thinking, “Could the arrangement have worked?”
Although Maina’s offer might be facetious, one wonders what could have been had Kenya’s most successful radio presenter gotten a child with one of Kenya’s hottest singers at the time?
That combination would have been perfect if you ask me, with the kids (you only hope for the best) becoming some of Kenya’s who is who?
We in the media would most likely be covering Maina and Sanaipe’s family the same way President Uhuru and Margaret Kenyatta and their family have become fodder for the media.
And the final question? Would their relationship have lasted this long? Most likely. Maina is a man who I can say is the lady-whisperer and his knowledge of the fairer s3x would have helped him navigate a wonderful relationship with Sana.
Also, Sana is a woman who has always been mature and forward-thinking-a trait that is important for any marriage to work long-term.
That it didn’t happen has robbed us of probably another Disney-esque relationship, Julie Gichuru style. But it still can. They have time!!! Maina make it happen! Sana please accept and give Kenyans something good to root that isn’t BBI…
