Raise your hand if you have spent a pretty penny on a weave or wig.

Yass girl, me too.

‘Women should wear a weave for 1 week, mine is worth 76k’ Akothee brags

How much is too much to spend on a wig or weave?

Sometimes the finest of strands could cost you a pretty penny and one Kenyan women knows too well.

She started off the discussion on Classic 105 with a candid confession.

you attract what you look like, so if you want a good man you must spend

Now before you start judging her, she adds that

This money I spend is from my earnings, and the man I am going to meet has to match up otherwise we are not talking, that is why many Kenyan men are complaining,

She spends this much money to rock her weave as fiercely as she wants.

I spend four thousand shillings every two week on my nails so that is 8k a month, on my hair it will depend, i have one wig that cost 60k the other 27k , and whom I am meeting has to match up, If you look 60k you attract 100k, on a month I can spend whatever it takes, if it is what makes me look good, its like a business you have to invest to make something out of yourself. Hatuaki watu wa kayole.

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

What’s the most you have ever paid or ever would pay for the weave of your dreams? Do you have rules on how much you’re willing to pay for a hairstyle? Would love to hear your hair weave sticker shock horror stories too.

1 in 3 Kenyan women go on dates just for FREE FOOD – Maina reacts to study


Wait just one minute! Does this mean that Kenyan girls who post Instagram pics of food while on a date are there for the food?

A study suggests that women go on dates just for the fee food.

The 30 percent women are not interested in the man just the FREE FOOD.

The researchers at the Azusa Pacific University tried understanding the concept of ‘foodie calls’ where an individual intentionally goes on a date to enjoy free food and is not romantically interested in the other person. In fact, it can happen when the person is broke or is simply tempted to try a new restaurant. This study was published in the ‘Society for Personality and Social Psychology’ journals and was done on two different groups of women.

Classic 105’s Maina Kageni says the research is shocking.


Maina reacted saying

To me that’s crazy ladies, women you’ve been used of being extremely cheap, ati on the first date you will go to a room

Maina posed this question

Would go on a date just for free food?

A female caller response surprised Maina

It’s true. Kenyan women are the cheapest with 10k you can have as many women as you want. Ukiwa na 2k unabuy mzinga na pesa ya gari asubuhi ( With 2,000 bob you buy her alcohol and money for a ride the next day) 

A certain allegation was also made by a man who shared his story of meeting a girl on Facebook, and their first date. He said she agreed to go to a room after the date


Men responded that they believe Kenyan women go on dates for free food, and alcohol.

‘ I go on a date knowing I will take pictures for snapchat’ another woman confessed to Maina.

This woman made Maina Kageni leave the studio for a drink

It’s been said countless times that Kenyan women keep their children away from their fathers out of anger and pettiness.

But this isn’t the experience for one Kenyan women who made Maina leave the studio citing the need for a drink.

She narrated how she was forced to give up her one-year-old daughter to avoid fights with her  baby daddy.

It happened that in-laws wakaleta shida na you know ma mummys boys don’t want to listen to their ladies. It happened I had a daughter and she was so attached to daddy, and there was a fight about her. She ended up with him.

He was told by the parent to take the child and they will take care of her.

She is with him, who lives with his parents. He went back to shags and the father searched a job for him so he is raising our daughter right now. I don’t see her, it’s been a year since I saw my daughter because I don’t want anything to do with them. 

I do miss her and sometimes when I call him, they don’t pick my call, siewzi enda huko itakuwa balaa to talk to those parents, even if we meet in the corridor we can’t even say hi. And she is four years and a half, I am okay with that I just told God to give me that piece of mind.

He stated

I need to get a drink

‘Hii kitu iko kwa damu’ women open up on why they get jealous over other women’s success

Speaker of Nairobi Count Assembly Beatrice Elachi caused a storm recently after stating that she only travels first class due to a medical condition.

Well the biggest issue in all this is that among those who were celebrating her eviction from City Hall were her fellow women which leaves the question as to whether women are their own worst enemies.


During the morning show, Maina Kageni gave his fans a chance to contribute on why women don’t support their fellow women especially when they are doing better than them.

One says

“Even kwa plot hapo ndo chuki huanzia ,from what you cook,what you wear, the clothes line how you treat your children.This people do exist na ni balaa.”

A male fan says that most women are envious of each others men and that is why they can’t enjoy each others success.

“Their minds revolve around snatching each others husbands and boyfriends and that is where this problems arise from.”


Another says

“It’ s  a good thing they are not united,look at it this way if women were united we would be finished completely, so don’t encourage them to come together.”

A male caller narrates how women in his church are always in conflict, questioning even the tiniest of details such as why the other person was not selected and not them.

Kirk Franklin forgives his father years after his parents gave him up for adoption

Another says

“Hii ni kitu iko kwa damu,you can just look at your fellow woman and just hate them without any particular reason.

Even on social media sometimes you just look at someones profile and just hate them you can’t even imagine following them so you just block them before they even send you a friend request.


Sometimes when I call customer care services and hear a woman’s voice on the other end I just disconnect and try calling until I get through to a male attendant.”
