The rapper often treated fans to lots of quotes on life, love and it’s worth noting it’s because he was a poet and a social activist.

Tupac without a doubt lived a tough life and his quotes have proven to have helped many prove the odds wrong.

Maina has been touched with this quote from Tupac. He spoke about his life saying

‘There are people who’ve been raised on Tupac, there are babies who’ve been named after Tupac, and it’s because of what was between his ears. He had a choice to either fail having come from  the ghetto without having a father and all he had was a mothers love but look at the things he did.’

Classic 105 celebrates Tupac Shakur on 23rd death anniversary


Today marks 23 years since the tragic death of Tupac Amaru Shakur, known to the masses simply as 2Pac.

Tupac Shakur was embroiled in a feud between East Coast and West Coast rappers and was murdered in a drive-by shooting in 1996, leaving behind an influential musical legacy at the age of 25.
He has sold 75 million albums to date, making him one of the top-selling artists of all time.tupac all eyez on me

Tupac was gunned down in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996 and died six days later. His murder has never been solved.

Tupac was named Lesane Parish Crooks at birth. After joining the Black Panther party, his mother changed his first name to Tupac Amaru, after an 18th-century Peruvian revolutionary who was killed by the Spanish. Tupac later took his surname from his sister’s Sekiya’s father, another Panther called Mutulu Shakur.

Tupac’s body was cremated. Members of his old band, Outlawz, made the controversial claim that they had smoked some of his ashes in honor of him.

His mother announced she would scatter her son’s ashes in Soweto, South Africa, the “birthplace of his ancestors,” on the 10th anniversary of his murder. She later changed the date to June 16, 1997 — Tupac’s 26th birthday as well as the anniversary of the 1976 Soweto uprising.

How long have you been with your man and why hasn’t he married you yet asks Maina


On the morning conversation on Classic 105, it was all about how ‘Ladies mumechomewa picha’ by Manu Chandaria.

Mzee formalized his mariage last week after 64 years of being together. They went to the AG’s office, signed a piece of paper and spent 9k and went back home.

Mwalimu questioned why Kenyan women are always in a hurry to marry men.

 hii haraka ni ya nini many Kenyan ladies want to marry so quickly. They take men mbio why the hurry why do they rush us so fast, where is the hurry?

Maina wasn’t convinced with this argument demanding to know how long women should take before asking for commitment.

if you don’t make your man commit, what do they do?

What are you doing with a man for seven years and he is not marrying you, how!! shouted maina

Do you know the kind of life that Manu Chandaria has given that woman? She has lived like a queen for those 64 years!

No no no they started from the bottom argued Mwalimu

Maina opened up debate to listeners on air and those online to contribute.

Ladies how long have you been with a man? A woman should never move into a woman’s house before marriage, you can build chemistry out there.

Ladies why have you been with a man for so long without getting married?

What are you doing in a mans house for five years giving him babies, aieee!!

How long have you been with your man and why hasn’t he married you yet?

A man called in with some deep thoughts

Why are you helping people who can’t help themselves, they bring themselves to us, and then they sit there like a tick. Kenyan women are gold diggers, they stick like ticks they don’t want to move out, they mark their territory and so they can’t be helped. We won’t marry them.

Another man said

I call it the emancipation of the boy child, finally we have a trick as a boy. I don’t have to marry her until I’m 100, I don’t have to sign papers, I am in a long term relationship about six years, and I don’t intend to marry her, let’s build a future together first, there is no hurry

Maina was astounded by his confession and advised his unidentified woman,

‘If your that’s your man, woman you are living a wasted life, sweetheart your are not a wife you are a maid with no options, six years and he has not married you ,what is he waiting for jesus christ to comeback?

If it’s been two years and he’s not talking of a future together, he is wasting your time, If he doesn’t even give you an engagement ring he is wasting your time, if he is living with you and doesn’t marry you he is wasting your time

Male caller

kitu ya kujiuliza ni moja tuu what was the objective of being with this woman? If it was children why waste money marrying her, we don’t just do things with no objectives in mind, like me let me not cheat you, you will never find me in a car written just married. I have better things to do with my money, the definition of money is go to her parents and that story ends there si they know me? This stupidity of marriage is useless, concentrate on life, she is here hearing em and I am not shaken, she is standing here listening to me

Another man’

there is no Kenyan woman who will stand with you from the bottom up,

Another man

I don’t think it makes sense to have a wedding if we are living together already, I am not married at 35 I’m not dating and if that time comes I don’t think it will happen immediately it will come after two or three kids

Many wondered if he had a baby mama and if he did, why would he keep her a secret.

Speaking during an exclusive interview with, Guardian said,

That was just a quote I picked up from google.

I thought the quote related with my situation with my dad. Most of these quotes we use don’t relate to us, its just something you share because some people relate to it.

If I had a baby mama I would never hide it.

Guardian Angel on a white bench

He adds,

Getting children out of wedlock happens to people sometimes even my mother was born again when she got me.

Fornication is wrong but when a baby is involved there is nothing you can do as you cannot kill/abort as that is another sin before God.

If all kids born out of wedlock were not to be blessed then I would not be where I am today.

‘He was like Akuku Danger’ – Morgan Heritage on fathers multiple baby mama’s

Peetah and Gramps joined Maina Kageni in studio Tuesday to talk more about their Kenyan concert.

They have a big show this weekend whose concept they explained

It’s all about the youths. last year when we arrived in Kenya we had a few shows everywhere we went we saw the same thing among the youth: lack of preparing youth to be leaders, anything that helps the future of mankind, so we thought we need to do something that creates awareness. What we have realised is that youth in the ghetto look up to the artistes, to celebrities.

‘We face pressure from friends wearing Sh80,000 wigs’, confesses woman


They also opened up about their father, who has fathered almost 30 children with several baby mamas.

Maina Kageni was curious about this fact, and the duo did not hold back saying

Back in 2005 the legendary musician spoke about his children in an interview with Jamaican Observer.

Check out Senator MIllicent Omanga’s lavish mansion – Photos

Senator Millicent Omanga in a recent interview with Betty Kyallo let Kenyans into her mansion and we must admit it is magnificent.

Speaking to Betty Kyallo, Omanga says she has been hustling for as long as she can remember.

Adding that the need to hustle was motivated by her mothers struggles to pay their school fees.

I am an interior designer.

I learnt the trade through passion and friends because I have studied B-Com at the University of Nairobi.

When in Campus I would use my upkeep cash to go to Dubai and buy stock and resell and make some profit enough to repay back the cash and sit for my exams.

Rock the head-wrap like classy Orie Rogo Manduli

She adds

By the time I finished university I was a fully fledged business woman.

I would get orders from the hospitality industry.

My dad had passed away while we were in school yet we were eight kids and my mum was struggling to pay for the fees.

That is why I chose to be independent.

My hubby loves me the way I am, If I lose weight I might lose him – Senator Omanga

Millicent goes on to add that despite having a busy schedule she always creates time for her kids.

I was in the Uk and came in the morning of mothers day and found balloons all over and I was so happy.

I am strict when need be and easy when they behave.

She adds that at some point she used to get bothered by trolls.

Initially I used to get hurt. I would cry till I could not cry anymore but I have now developed a tough skin.

My conscience is clear. so I have nothing to be worried about.

My worry at the time was only that my kids would see such stuff. It would really affect but personally I feel nothing about negative critics.

Here are photos of Omanga’s house as seen during an interview with Betty Kyallo on ‘Up close with Betty’.
