‘My wife was beaten by my side dish who was only defending me’ Should I apologize to her or just let it go?

Women are known to be smart when it comes to hiding extra marital affairs unlike men, but it is not something to be proud about though.

Men are more easily caught given the mere fact that they do not know how to tell creative lies.

A man was caught in a fix after his wife caught him  and his mpango wa kando being all lovey dovey at a friends wedding.

‘I am grateful I said YES, you are more than I could ever ask for’ Emmy Kosgei pens to hubby on 5th wedding anniversary


“I know I messed up on my part but she messed up more .
So I asked my wife to follow me for a wedding on Saturday but she refused,saying she does not have what to wear, I gave her 10 thousand  to buy a dress but she said I should make it 30 thousand for bag and shoes so I ignored her,knowing she was not interested.
I left for the wedding in the morning, which she knows the friend on mine who was wedding but she still bluntly refused to go.
So I left and along the way I picked my side chick and we went together.
I did not know she changed her mind and stumbled into the reception and it was unfortunate that my side chick was feeding me, just this normal public love and my wife had sighted us, she walked straight to my sit and gave me a slap that made the hall quiet .”

I have terminated three pregnancies yet i am pregnant again and my boyfriend has denied it,should i terminate?

Just when you think that the man was spared, he goes on to narrate how the mpango wa kando poured a plate of food on the wife.

“I was still holding my face in shame and she took the glass of wine and poured on my side chick so my side chick slapped her and poured her the plate of rice and moi moi, before people came to settle.
I was so embarrassed and ashamed of myself. My friends had to cover me to walk away in shame.
Now she left the house before I got home, noticed she moved few of her things and her dad has been calling me. Am I supposed to apologize? I feel she is no different from me. My side chick stood up for me. I need advice before I pick her dad’s call, for now I am blank.”

What makes parents kick their kids out Maina Kageni asks (AUDIO)

A woman called in to the Classic 105 studios, recounting her anger at being chased away by her parents with a three-month-old baby.

The angry woman revealed she was just 23-years-old, when her ‘heartless’ parents kicked her out and yet she had not healed from the wounds of the C-section. She was chased away when it was raining heavily.

‘Maina some parents are just heartless, nilifungiwa nyumba, wakaniambia hatuna pesa sort yourself out, niko na mtoto amcnga sijapona kidonda, some parents are heartless, she narrated

It was raining and I was calling my parents ati hawana pesa. There are some arents who are heartless, she repeated.

How can it get there?

Mwalimu was not convinced by her story, and demanded she come clean on the matter. He insisted parents also get tired to the extent where they chase away their child.

He says there is a story behind her explanation. He adds that by the time parents chase away their child, there have been events leading up to this drastic action, when they say enough is enough. Parents have warned their kids, but they are not listening, what do you want them to do?

‘inafika mahali unachokesha mzazi now it’s to watch you’,

Do parents get tired? Are you a parent?

Have you ever gotten there with your parents to the extent they don’t care what happens to you?

Some parents even take their child to the police and beg them to arrest their child.

One caller said’ Maina, don’t blame parents, there are things we do to them. Like my sister was in Form two and she went and got married. when she was pregnant, the guy used to beat her up, and then she went back home to our parents. ‘alikuwa anaambiwa stop going back there‘, but she didn’t listen.

‘She was told to go and sort herself out. sometimes we are to push our parents to do so’.

A parent gives her reasons for kicking out her son, and why she has no regrets about it. Listen below.

A woman on Classic 105 stunned many when she proudly and openly declared she has built a home for her husband and ensures she deposits cash in his account regularly, with the biggest amount being Sh300,000.

It turns out that there is a problem women have and that has to do with giving men money. Why can’t women help a man out financially and not keep quiet about? KOT of course were on hand to give their take on the topic. check out some comments below.

Mwalimu Kingang’i says men help out all the time, but women have a problem doing so.

‘Show me one woman, yule amesaidia mwanume mpaka akafika mwisho, na hasemi. Hawawezi pita watatu. Literally dragged a man from the mad, akamsomesha, akapata kazi, he built an empire, na amenyamaza.’

Irene, was of the view that silence in a woman is the most painful thing, Shiku on the other hand was of the view that giving a man money is giving him a gate pass to irresponsibility. She went on to add that ‘I can help him out other ways but not financially’.

Another woman said ‘I can’t help a man financially, I will tell him to go get a job, even for mjengo’, Purity was of the opinion that unless he is sick I’ can’t help him’.

Another said, ‘If it were not for me bwanangu hangekuwa popote saa hii. Mimi namsaidia kila siku Everyday I wake up in the morning namwmbea, Mamabo yote namshugulikia, ile siku nitawacha itakuwa mwisho wake.’

Here are more comments from KOT to Maina Kageni.

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’.

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:

Our wives give their single friends a ‘through pass’ admit Kenyan husbands (AUDIO)

Girls, you could be unknowingly giving your single pal an opportunity to get intimate with your husband, if the thoughts expressed on Classic 105 are anything to go by.

Several male callers blamed their wives for ‘unknowingly’ hooking them up with their single friends, and said the ‘through pass’ is a blessing they can’t say no to.

One man narrated how his wife gave her pal his phone number so that they can do biashara together. innocent right? I mean so many Kenyans do that. Sadly, the husband claims that his wifes friend seduced him into a relationship and worse he could not say no. He even left his wife for the female friend.

Why do married couples fear single women?

Classic 105’s Maina Kageni wanted to know; how paranoid can one be that their now single friend is not good to hang out with?

Just listen in as callers describe why they avoid their now single female friends, or what happened when they ‘unknowingly’ became friends with single female friends.

 

 

This is the biggest lame excuse Maina Kageni has heard from absentee fathers (AUDIO)

If you’re a single mother with a baby by a married man, you need to read this.

Girls, the reason a married man doesn’t help out is because wives don’t allow them to help out these children.

How can a wife stop a husband from doing so? Well male callers said they are afraid of being killed by their wives. This is the biggest lame excuse Maina has ever heard in his entire life.

He wanted to know why men have babies outside of their marriages.

Guys and girls do you buy this excuse?

‘This is the biggest load of crap I have ever heard in my life’, Maina exclaimed.

Is it true that wives play apart in ensuring that their husbands don’t support the other children.

Married women are you the stumbling block from stopping your husband taking care of his responsibilities?

A man said one of the reason they don’t take care of these children is because of wives.

He said wives don’t allow husbands to take care of children born outside of marriage.

Maina wanted to know how this is possible.

A female caller narrated her experience with a married man saying; ‘I was engaged to a someone and a couple of months before the wedding I found out he was having a baby with someone else. He begged for forgiveness and I was okay with it. I told him go to the lawyer and find out how much it will cost for maintenance. I gave him the room to do that he took advantage of me and continued with the relationship with that same woman behind my back. So Maina if you give them room, they go and do more than they are supposed to do.

Classic 105 fam, do you buy this?

Kenyan singer Vivian shares details of the ordinary job she did before the fame (Audio)

Classic 105’s Maina Kageni today hosted Kenyan singer Vivian in studio, where she opened up about her past, her musical journey and future plans.

Vivian was in studio with Maina Kageni who said way before he met her he was impressed by how hardworking she was.

‘She is a go getter’, were the words Maina used to describe Vivian as he heaped praises on her.

‘I started singing four years ago at Maian Switch studios with singer Jaguar. Before that I was a kawaida Nairobi chick, a hustlerress. I used to own a gaming shop in Eastlands where I grew up.’ She narrated her humble beginnings to an impressed Maina.

‘I was a hustler, who used to sell stuff. I was always pursuing things because when I was in college I was doing stuff. Eventually I got my first big break.

What is she working on now? ‘I just started a new movement called the moran, a movement that symbolises the bold and the fearless. Its also an inspiration because of the journey as a musician, for the harassment we suffer along the way. I want to motivate girls who want to start’.

mainakagenihostsvivianinstudio

Maina also wanted to know how Vivian ended up doing a collabo with Ugandan singer Jose Chameleone for their hit song.

‘We met at a hotel in Uganda, and our managers who knew each other because of a similar meeting back in Kenya, talked. I gave him (Jose Chameleone) a few songs to listen to, and as it turns out he liked charm and things went well from there.

Maina: Chameleone sent me the song via whatspapp and I absolutely fell in love with it.

What lies ahead for Vivian? We have to get heard in Africa and globally. Try to push the envelope. I’m planning for a stadium event next. If we don’t do it we will always end up being curtain raisers for international celebs. I want to get rid of the stereoptype for Kenyans. We’ve lined up several summits in universities and high school, most likely in January so we can get thousands to the stadium for the concert. I did a double release recently and we are doing well, we are still pushing the limits’.
