Its painful to accept that women can’t have it all at the sametime. A social life, a flourishing career, & money. Personally, I’d blame my folks cos they r the ones that ignite pressures that cause one to live beyond their means
Maina they do live beyond what they have,u find a jobless woman who looking so good but you can’t see the source of money.But again wako na jamo wa make up,Douglas wa nguo,maina wa kiatu,kingangi wa nywele,wakanai wa road trips
maina Most ladies are suffocating under huge debts living beyond their own means, spending money they don’t have just to please other women #mainaandkingangi

‘If you don’t have money stay with your mother’ Maina advises broke men

If you are looking for love and don’t have money stay with your mother, was the strong message Maina Kageni had for broke men.

Why do you want to get a woman and you don’t have money? he posed. Why should you expect a woman to sacrifice her best years and then when you get money you find a young woman

This comes after a young man called him narrating how he is broke and looking for a Kenyan woman to marry.

The young man is 30 years and heartbroken no woman wants him

I’m 30 and I’m a hustler. Women are going for older men to support them financially, yet I have no such capacity to give her money and I want to get married. They tell me to tafuta pesa then you come for me, at 30 years (this will be very difficult) si hiyo inakuwa ngumu , yet these are the same ladies who will show up later with children from the old men asking us to marry them.


Maina was not moved an inch and continued his tirade against young, single and broke men

Dynamics have changed and income now plays a big role. 

Please don’t call Kenyans girls gold diggers, they just know what they wan

In this economy, you want a woman to wait ten or twenty years for him to make money?

Wait until you get money to get married Maina said

‘Focus on your marriage let others be dumped’ Maina blasts angry man


An argument over why women are deserting their marriages early in life had one man very worried.

The man called Maina Kageni attempting to convince him to ‘cheza chini’ (leave the topic alone) but Maina would have none of it.

This comes after a women told Maina she feels emotionally drained and doesn’t care for her man anymore, she had given him permission to search for a second wife.

saa zingine maybe he needs to get another wife, a sample so we see whether he is the problem or it’s me, to see if he will improve or appreciate the first wife better.

I’m 35 and tired of my husband, he can get a second wife – city mum shouts

The man perhaps wasn’t being honest saying

why do you want to spoil for us? I’ve been married for 15 years and I’m 35. my wife isn’t tired coz she would have left, why would she leave me? Why are you spoiling for us men? Why should a woman leave a marriage, why are you encouraging them to. There is someone who could be listening to you and leave their marriage

Maina shut down this man in the most cheeky way

If a woman is tired of her marriage, she should go. What is she remaining to do? Is your woman tired of you?

wewe chunga boma yako, unaogopa nini ati bibi yako ataniskiza atoke? wachana na wengine waachwe, what are you so worried about?

Chills for who? A fan was thoroughly amused and shared his comments below:

Men on the fake life of social media and Kenyan women


Whats is this obsession with creating a fake life on social media?

Is social media making many Kenyan women live a fake life?

Today on the morning conversation, Classic 105’s Maina Kageni tackled the topic of people living a glamourous online life yet their reality is not true.

Maina had a conversation with a young gentleman who said he doesn’t know whether to make things serious with his girlfriend.


The young man told Maina that ‘The only reason holding them is the fact that the girlfriend they see on social media and the one they have next to them are two totally different human beings.’

Maina confessed that these young men are feeling short changed coz what they see is the most beautiful thing ever.

Mwalimu Kingangi added his own question to the mix ‘Do women want real men? Men want to settle down lakini wamechanganyikiwa, they are confused TOTALLY, he insisted. 

Male listeners called to complain about how unreal women were. They said women they saw on social media are not the same they saw in real life.  They felt deceived about all that life.

How to dress like the fashionable Alpha female that you are! 

Women were of opinion that men were to be blamed. They were giving them the pressure to look good so they gave them what they asked for. The qualities that men were looking for in ladies were so high that makes them to do all they can to meet them. That included the filters and the makeup apps that they used to make their social media photos to enhance their beauty. They said that men will not appreciate them if they were real because they needed beautiful and curvy women.

Celebrities who’ve ventured into the fashion world and are nailing it!

Other comments were; Maina nobody will like your photo if you are a Njeri. You have to make sure your tummy is flat and your butt is so curvy to have their attention.

We have to filter our pictures and use apps to make our shapes look good. We will also nyonya your money and postpone our meetings before we meet.

You cant blame the ladies but the society which is pushing them to do so. If you have a look at these celebreties hakna mtu ameo dem anakaa mkate all of them look. This makes these ladies to do the same especially in this generation where everybody is of light complexion. There is no job so these ladies take all there time to make there physical appearance better. They need to fake it till they make it.
