Why we fake it on social media – KOT tell Maina their secrets

We are all familiar with the phrase that you fake it till you make it.

But are Kenyans taking things a little too far.

Classic 105 host Maina Kageni posed this question to KOT, who responded with their thoughts and personal experience.

Maina sought to know how long do you intend to keep up the lie on social media?

Maina added his thoughts that he believes we are all hiding behind screens saying

Are you always happy on social media, do you look like your profile picture.

Is that how you inspire yourself?

Kenyans on Twitter spoke out below:
@Classic105Kenya maina we have to fake it until we make it. It’s the name of the game.

Ugali: KOT react to report linking maize to cancer cases


The relationship between maize consumption and the risk of cancer is causing alarm and rightfully so.

Ugali is a staple food loved by all Kenyans and the report conducted on women at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) in Eldoret suggests consumption of aflatoxin in food increases the risk of cervical cancer.

The new study published last Thursday in the journal Open Forum Infectious Diseases, found women with high aflatoxin concentrations in their blood were also likely to have cancer causing HPV strains.

Numerous reports have linked aflotoxin to our favorite meal, and KOT are up in arms about it. Back in 2012, a similar report linked GMO maize strain to cancer with scientists urging authorities to be serious.

KOT are now questioning what they should or shouldn’t eat. Read some comments from Twitter.

The real reasons Kenyans don’t tell you about not visiting shags

When is the last time you went shags?

Be honest, probably several years.

This is something many of us are guilty of and it’s not because of distance.

Classic 105’s Mike Mondo opened up debate about this to listeners to tell the real reason why Kenyans no longer visit their ushago.

Mike wondered

Top 7 reasons why Kenyan women do not accompany their men to ‘shags’

If you are an 80’s baby, you will get this.

We lived for the moment of visiting shags.

But nowadays there is a trend among young people not being interested in visiting the village. If you ask them where they are going it’s Dubai or Mombasa. Infact if you see them in shags it’s for a ruracio.

It’s sad it’s your grandmother who gets into a bus to come to Nairobi to see you. It even used to be a big deal to take your babe to shags for Christmas. And I’m wondering :what’s happening. Why don’t young people visit the village anymore?

Why is it that as a young person going to shags on vacation is a no.. no?

A caller said

nowadays it’s not easy kwasababu kazi Nairobi ni ngumu sana afadhali utume pesa kwa mpesa. Kuwenda ushago saa hii the ladies we are marrying nowadays they don’t want to go shags.

Another said

I go shags every December and it’s a rule. Where I got married they have a rule every December you take your wife to shags.

Another said

I last went 20 years when my dad died in 99. This was the last time we went there.Before that we went every December but the reason why I stop going ni my relatives walinikosea. When my dad died there was family conflict. I hated my grandmother and my grandfather. I hated everyone on my dads side I swore never to go back there, so I have to get someone to show me direction there. The last time I was there I don’t remember anything.

Another said commenting on Twitter

Mike it depends with people who are there. Mike at our home area ppl are very demanding

Another said

The fact that I hate my grandmother so much makes me not go to that home it is so painful thaty our grandmother hates your kids so what is the reason to go shags, in kukuyu she calls her own children dogs it is that bad.


Another said

It’s a classic example of people not appreciating where they come from, people are hiding in towns. It’s because they are not investing in their kishagi and they wouldn’t find it dirty if they did. So let people go back to kishagi first.

Chipukeezy speaks marijuana and the quality he loves most in a woman

The same thing happened to me in 2016. A “mzungu” from Narok was coming to buy some plotters he got stuck in limuru where he told me the police had arrested him for overspending now that he had no cash and the money in bank was in dollars which was accessible upon arriving.
This game is atleast 5 yrs old. I listed my car on OLX a while back and this guy tried to con me. Only he claimed on his way from Narok to Nairobi he was arrested by NTSA for speeding and needed help with cash bail, 20k. That’s when I knew he was a Kenyan con, not even white 😃
@Aketcheryl..a inakuja ya mzungu ama?😂😂😂. How can someone be fooled thrice?
It’s unfortunate what befell him.. this craze about mzungu trust is what’s ruining lives..people tend to think they can’t get raw deals with wazungu and hence the trust ruins them..let’s beware..nowadays, they’re using love issues too to swindle Africans cash

On my case a guy told me he has hit piki ya mayai so anadai 5K to pay off. I sent 50 bob nikamwambia anunue credo yenye ame waste lol!
