Mwalimu Kingangi asked him if he was worried he will be banned from the country to which Maina responded
Nonsense, that is a whole President, even the Italian president said I give up, why don’t we take it seriously as Africans? Why were churches full on Sunday and why were bars full on Saturday, why do we have leaders who go manga mangain?
Before Maina Kageni came to Classic 105 he was working at Nation FM, where he was being paid peanuts according to a confession made on air.
He told how his current boss Patrick Quarcoo approached him to poach him from Nation Media Group.
‘I went to meet Patrick Quarcoo at a restaurant in town called Tratorria. So he asked me how much I’m being paid at Nation, I told him sh180,000. He told me he is going to give me 380,000 to move, na saa hiyo walikuwa wananilipa 60,000 (laughing) Nilikimbia Nation Centre kuresign officially kabla haja change his mind . Nie reke gwire.
An excited Maina later left the lunch time meeting and ran to hand in his resignation at Nation.
Wasn’t Maina though a bit skeptical about the hug salary offer?
Apparently not as he explains
‘He kept his word. I left Nation, I came here, he told me first of all go and relax so he gave me two months salary niende ni relax. i went to Mombasa and then to south Africa aki yaoo hiyp maisha’
Mwalimu Kingangi wanted to know how he pulled it off to which Maina said
People take your for how you present yourself, Maina admitted and if you present yourself like you are wroth 20, then that is what you will be paid.
Mwalimu was so jealous because his offer was sh10,000 an offer he took up because ‘bora ni kazi’.
Maina in the Classic 105 morning conversation on Wednesday March 4, leaked some details about Diamond Platnumz’ reasons for bedding multiple women, as well as why he dumps them soon after to move on to the next conquest.
He began by first noting that Diamond is a serial cheater
nie reke gwire madrama, I keep telling these little girls around him, don’t think you can change him
why do you think you will be the one to change him? I had an argument in the bank yesterday about Diamond,
First of all let me tell you that he doesn’t understand why you girls are always causing drama
Thursday, 13 February 2020 marks World Radio day and Classic hosts Maina and Mwalimu are paying homage to those many of us don’t remember.
Maina thanked Kenyans for ‘making this gig so much fun, adding ahsanteni there would be no radio without you.
The theme of World Radio Day 2020 is “Radio and Diversity”. The theme centers around diversity and plurilingualism. It is a significant medium to celebrate humanity in the entirety of its diversity and gives a platform for democratic discourse.
Man I remember the suits, they were classic. At his age you don’t even mourn you celebrate
I also remember maziwa ya Nyayo, that was one hell of a logistical nightmare, can you imagine delivering milk to every school in Kenya without fail?
Another thing was the schools he held close to his heart, Kabarak University and Moi High School. Kabarak University and Moi High School, si you guys were like princes and princesses, yani the way he treated you guys, so special
She adds that the reason for bankrolling her siblings families is because of guilt.
She feels guilty if she neglects her nieces and nephews’ financial needs yet their parents couldn’t be bothered to work.
‘It reaches a point nobody is paying school fees, and when I say no the kids call me telling me auntie sijaenda shule, I am educating 3 children, and my sister used to work but now she is not working, she just sits in the house, and I pay rent for her,’
This abuse in the hands of her family has seen her own children chased away from school for lack of fees.
‘I’m a single parent and my daughter was today left by the school bus, and I have other because I haven’t paid school fees yet I also pay for others. My child is suffering because of this’
Her generosity is abused to the extent that her her siblings lie about looking for work
‘I ask her her plans for life and she says I don’t know she will look for a job even if its a househelp job, then in two three days she calls back saying they don’t have food, and her children are hungry. I see texts then I start thinking about the small children then I buy food, Maina even in my house when we don’t have food, I try saying no but it’s not working, I’m so heart broken,’
Trying to hold back tears, the woman also added that pressure from her mother doesn’t help the situation
‘the painful part is the children who come back to me saying they have not eaten. Surely will you sit back and watch them, my mother calls me and tells me it’s my responsibility, it haunts me it pains me, it’s so hard maina,,
Why do people make such poor decisions about politics? Why are they so often distracted by lies, and all things irrelevant?
Politics today formed the basis of the morning conversation with Classic 105’s Maina and Kinga’ngi revealing their thoughts on the divisive matter.
This conversation follows a story published in the Star Newspaper that suggested Raila Odinga is worth Sh2billion, and many don’t believe it.
Maina prompted debate after giving his two cents on the matter
‘So if we know they re liars, why do we vote for them? Here is the thing, the two key players in 2022 elections will be Raila and Ruto, yet no one trusts them, no one believes them,‘
Maina’s question to listeners was: So if you don’t believe baba when he says he is worth two billion, then which politician can stand up today and you believe the things they say?
A man contributed to the conversation by confessing his terrible decisions when it comes to voting.
Siasa means it’s not true. Politicians are voted for based on how they are able to lie to us. In 2022, I will wake up and vote for someone who lies, they are supposed to lie to use so we vote for them. In Kenya right now we are saying Jubilee has messed the economy, and the same people in Jubilee still believe Ruto will solve this mess in 2022. Clearly we are not about voting for facts, but people who lie to us more openly and who is able to convince us by lying. I will vote in 2022 for someone who will lie, I’m still going to vote for a lair, until we allow people who are learned to vote, because the vote is the one who should be more educated and not the politician like we always say.
He rattled Maina Kageni who responded by saying
That is so sad
‘you cannot tell me there is not a single politician you believe, then you tell me in 2022 you will wake up at three am, ago and queue in that hot sun for seven hours nd vote for someone you know full well is a liar?’ Are you serious?
Why are we voting blindly? What’s wrong with us?
A woman commented about the mans confession saying
‘I’m 53 years and I’ve never voted in my life, because they are all thieves, and at the end of the day when I go to them for help they will ignore me? Vote for what? At the end of the day sina mboga, and yet I voted for him? I’ve never voted, and I know at the end of the day I know they are all like that so I decided at the end of the day I will never vote.
Maina Kageni and Mwalimu King’ang’i spoke about the issue of cyber-bullying that has become an issue in recent years. Maina referenced an allegation that Buyer Beware, the famous Facebook page had bullied some people.
“How do you deal with cyber-bullying? I read a lot this past weekend about Buyer Beware were they allegedly threatened to expose COOP Bank. The bank allegedly had to pay the page’s owners 900K. Why do we fat-shame or body-shame?” Maina asked.
King’ang’i chimed in by speaking about the experience that some prominent females had had.
“I can remember Linda Nyangweso when she got married, and she got a kid. She used to cry every day until she developed a thick skin. People used to shame her about her weight. Even Gladys Shollei. Kaleyke Mumo aliambiwa vitu hapa,” Mwalimu said.
One of the scariest comments is below. It concerns a man whose girlfriend’s photos were leaked by an ex of hers. Not only that, the ex used fake social media profiles using the man’s names to do the deed.
“Leave alone this body-shaming thing. I had a gf. Her ex posted her ****** using a fake social page that he had created. I went to Lang’ata police station and they couldn’t help me. I contacted Facebook and they took too long to respond. I had to leave. For two months he kept sending the photos to my colleagues. I called him and told him that I had left the girl. For the past few months, it has stopped since then,” the man told Maina.
Some other comments from other listeners are below;
The worst part about cyber-bullying is that many people gain confidence and hide behind their online personas because there are largely unaware that cyber-bullying laws exist – A man said.
I just watched that documentary it was sad….cyber bullying is not a joke and something must be done before its too late not everyone is strong yo handle cyber bullying – A woman said.
Maina social media haitaki makasiriko. When you’re cyber bullied what matters is how you take it. Most people on social media live fake lifes, you just don’t take them seriously. Wengine kama mimi ata hatuwezi weka picha yetu kwa profile😂 – A man said.
Cyber bullying in kenya is just on another level – Someone said.
Most of those committing cyber bullying use Pseudo accounts. Something needs to be done so as to take full Control- A nother said.
Bullying people on social media is a sign of your own insecurities. Saying mean words to people who’ve never offended you – Another said.
The action or practice of humiliating someone by making mocking or critical comments about their body shape or size should stop and it’s punishable by law. a serious issue that can affect a victim – A man said.
Cyber Bullying has become a norm here in Kenya. Don’t care about negative comments from negative minds. Instead challenge yourself and move on – Another said.
Mike Mondo and Mwalimu King’ang’i had an interesting conversation today that concerned submission. Mike referenced an interesting comment a female caller had made where she advocated for submission in order to save many marriages.
“Women don’t respect their men anymore. Ladies also want to have their say in many marriages. Respect your man even if he is a fool.”
King’ang’i agreed with the woman’s statement saying, “There are some decisions that men make that are shocking. If women tell you some of the nonsense they go through, you would advise them to leave. The secret to a happy marriage is to submit even if your man is a fool.”
One particular female caller gave her own anecdote about submission saying, “When I was getting married, my mom told me that for a marriage to succeed, moja lazima akuwe ng’ombe. I had been married for 14 years and before we separated. Tulikuwa fahali wawili! How can you be a ng’ombe forever? It does work if one becomes a ng’ombe.”
Some of the other comments are below;
I broke up with my boyfriend one and a half years ago. He was book smart but not street smart-A woman said.
You cannot demand submission it comes naturally. If you provide and respect that woman she will submit. Respect that union-Man.
Women were always meant to submit no matter how Rich or sophisticated they’re, there can’t be two heads leading at homes-Man.
Mike Mondo had an interesting discussion today concerning the reason he and Maina Kageni were still senior bachelors. The sultry-voiced presenter added another reason for his bachelorhood. He said many Kenyan women don’t want to get married and are only looking for sperm donors.
“Yesterday I and Maina were abused because we weren’t married. We became serious bachelors because many ladies don’t want to get married. Ladies just don’t want to get married.”
This anecdote from Mike led to his topic of the day. Why don’t Kenyan women want to get married anymore? The consensus answer among women was the easy line, “Men ain’t sh!t!”.
Some of those comments are below;
Ladies have more money than men. That’s why they just want donors-A man said.
I have been married for the past 12 years. I just recently got out of marriage. My husband was abusive, he is an alcoholic and he was a poor father. Now that I am by myself, I have found immense peace. I don’t consider getting married ever again-A woman said.
Many women are seeing their friends suffering in marriage and they avoid it-A woman said.
Marriage is a sacrifice. If you aren’t ready for the commitment, then don’t do it-A woman said.
I am married. If I knew marriage would be like this, I would never have gotten married. My husband can’t even leave a shilling for the family. He can’t even pay for fees and he has 3 kids. I would advise my daughter not to get married-A woman said.
When I was growing up I saw the way my dad mistreated my mom, I decided to leave on my own. I don’t see the point of getting married anymore-A woman said.
We meet, have a good time and call it a day. Men have refused responsibilities. Everything they do is about “me, myself and I”. I have been married for 11 years. I left 5 years ago. My experience while I was married wasn’t the best-A woman said.
Mike Mondo spoke on this defending himself and Maina on why they want to sow their wild oats.
I am 38 and in no hurry. They are jealous of us Maina, don’t listen to them about marrying.
The pressure I get from Mwalimu Kinga’ng’i every year, it’s too much. You know I look up to people like Charles Njonjo, why can’t you let me marry at any age? You keep disturbing Maina also. What is the hurry?
Research suggests that once men reach 33 or 34, the chances they’ll commit start to diminish, but only slightly. Until men reach 37, they remain very good prospects.
Dear Classic 105 fam, what is better: To first establish yourself or get married early when you are still young and grow with your wife?
Maina and King’ang’i spoke about the can of worms Babu Owino opened after his gun antics that took place last week Friday.
The host said that what Babu had done was endemic of a bigger issue that the country was facing, that is a culture where leaders did as they please with impunity. “Kenyan leaders behave like they are above the law. It didn’t start with Babu. It is a consequence of a wider thing.”
Mr. Kageni even added that the first thing Babu said after his arrest was that he was going to support BBI.
King’ang’i agreed with the gist of Maina’s argument saying that the youth had no leaders to emulate and that is why they are behaving poorly.
The host then opened the conversation to the public. Some of the comments are below;
He is the same person who posted about Raila becoming the president either by ballot or by bullet – A woman said.
Babu just showed us the type of leaders we have – A woman said.
What if Nancy Barasa’s case happened today? She wouldn’t go home. The Jubilee government has failed Kenyans. In Kibaki’s government things used to work but under Jubilee things are very different – A man said.
Babu is at peace because he has supported the handshake and thinks it will keep him safe – A man said.
Whom can we run to when the leaders we support behave like this – A man said.
What do you expect when the government doesn’t adhere to court orders? – A man asked.
We have to stop voting for politicians but for leaders. I have been a victim before. Someone prominent tried to shoot me at Whisky River. I dodged a bullet – A man said.
In the 80’s one senior officer came into a bar in Ng’ong and shot his wife dead on the counter. This has been going on for a long time. You only become popular when you become a gangster – A man said.
Why do drinking joints allow people with guns anymore? – A woman asked.
Kenya ni kwa wenye pesa na wenye jina. Even when you go to prison, you can’t find rich people – A woman told Mr. Kageni.
