The first jobs celebrities had before the fame: List

Looking at celebrities we sometimes assume that they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth. But that is not always the case.

You have heard ‘kazi ni kazi’ and these celebrities took on that mantra to survive. They did what they had to do to reach where they are now.

  1. Otile Brown

Otile Brown was in the past used to help his mother sell changaa.

He is now a celebrated artiste so your past cannot determine your future.

In a past social media post,  Otile narrated how losing his mum affected his life.

Adding that sometime he would be frog-marched by police for selling illicit brews.

“Appreciate and love your mama…feeling kinda emotional tonight.

Wish she could be here so I can spoil her, My mom died when I was about to turn 13.

I don’t like talking about it but I don’t shy away from speaking about it because I know it could motivate someone.

Otile Brown

Sometimes when I would get caught, the officers would frog march me past the school compound where other children would see me. It was embarrassing didn’t like doing it but I had to survive,” 

Willy Paul

I was nearly in depression – Maina told by man left for 3-year-old son by ex

The morning conversation today was about a rarely discussed topic, that of a woman leaving their kids and not coming back. Maina was shocked and surprised wondering if such a thing could ever happen?

He asked listeners, ‘Have you ever left a baby at a reception? What made you do it? How do you leave the kid and never come back. I understand the men but not the women.’

Man MOANS about ‘deadbeat’ ex for not taking care of their child

King’ang’i said it was a common problem and that even in the place he worked kids were being left at the reception! ‘If you pretend that you aren’t picking the phone, they will leave the baby at the reception. Even a kid of 3 years. Many single fathers  are doing an awesome job.’

The host in a red shirt
Maina Kageni in a red shirt

One man regaled Maina with his tale of how his baby mama had left his 3-year-old son sleeping in his bed never to be seen from again. He told the Classic105 host,

‘I am one of the single fathers. This being left for a child is not a joke. I was left with him (my son) in my bed when he was 3 and a half. For 3 months I was nearly in depression. Now I am used to it. He is 4 and a half. I looked for her and I decided to leave her alone. She just called once, I told her to leave me alone. That is life. Vumilia. Kuna difference between kuzaa na kulea.’

Some other comments are below;

I cannot leave my kids, even if the government intervenes-A woman said.

I am one of those women who has left their kids with the father. I left them with their father because he and I weren’t together anymore. I took two of them to his school, he refused them. When he did that I sent them to his office. He is a very good father and he takes care of them-A woman confessed.

Maina Kageni responds to those curious about his dad (exclusive)

My kids are my life, so never will I leave them-A woman said.

We were left by my mother. Then our father left us so I had to raise my siblings. I was only 15 years-A woman said.

My father left first then my mother left, even though we were 7 kids. When I asked my parents, they blame each other. We were separated into different families. Some of my siblings even died. I don’t know how my mom’s food tastes like. My father refuses to apologise-A woman said.

My wife left me with a one-year-old child. I have been with the child for 8 years. From that day I have never seen her. The baby doesn’t know the mother. Men are strong but these women are taking advantage-man.

At the end of the show, Mr. Kageni revealed that he was shocked that the issue was a bigger problem than he ever thought

Wamekosana!! King’ang’i threatens to leave the studio after Maina Kageni did this

Maina and King’ang’i’s breakfast show is always the way to start your day. It is always hot when it gets to the morning conversations everyday.

Well, today it was no different and the two presenters ‘disagreed’ as King’ang’i threatened to leave the studio.

Here is how it went down.

On Monday, a married man made his special confession on Classic 105 saying how he pampers his wife

When you get married the lady is not a maid, she is not a maid, you have to help each other.

‘I wash my wife’s underwear’ husband of seven years admits

He narrated how he helps his wife in doing house chores including washing the wife’s panties.

This husband goes above and beyond to help his wife relax after a long day at work.

“I am living in Thika and she works in Nairobi. . I call her when she is about to come home, and prepare salad for her to eat when she comes home. Then while she is eating the salad, I prepare her bath and I cook dinner.”

Well, Maina brought in the discussion today, but like any other day, King’ang’i disagreed saying,

“there are things that men are not supposed to do.”

‘I pamper my wife by preparing her bath everyday’ Man brags 

King’ang’i said that the last time he tried changing his daughter diapers, she could not walk and so will never do it again.

An agitated King’ang’i called that Umama.

“I can’t even do the laundry. There are things you need to stop after you get married. There are responsibilities you hand over to the wife. I cant iron, and that is why I tell you to marry, you have a big responsibility to take care of. Usijaribu kufanya tushikwe na UMAMA.”

King’ang’i added,

“Women are very bad, they get used to you doing housework and even write your name on the duty roaster and even visitors find you washing the house. If a man does that, that is Umama unless it is a surprise on a Sunday. Wacha apike hiyo mashakula. women stop cooking when they know you can cook, they come late ndio apate umepika.”

He went on to tell Maina that he is encouraging women to disobey their husbands.

“Stop that, wacha Maina, usiwai taka mzoeane it is not a good example,” he said.

When Maina insisted to know why it is wrong, King’ang’i threatened to leave the studio.

“I have told you to stop encouraging that as my friend or I walk out of this studio. You don’t teach them like that Maina! that is not being romantic,” he said

Maina then gave the listeners time to contribute to the discussion.

Dear Classic 105 fam, is it to much to ask a man to help with house chores?

‘I thought my man was perfect that he couldn’t cheat only to learn he cheated even before our wedding’ woman confesses (AUDIO)

During the Maina and King’ang’i ishow in the morning, a woman caught many by surprise after confidently stating that her man has never cheated.

At a time when many men are cheating and blaming the devil for their behaviour, this seems pretty far fetched.

Declaring her unwavering trust in her man, she said

“I have a perfect man in my life, he has never cheated on me, he always comes home by 9pm. Whenever I want to drink he buys drinks come we drink together, whatever I want he gives it to me.

He has never cheated on me. I  differ with women on that, he has never never cheated on me, we have been together, I have never found any clue that he is cheating on me.”


A male caller was in support of the lady stating that she is one in a million

“That lady apewe kila kitu anataka duniani hadi hizi tinga tinga zinabomoa buildings Nairobi, she is one in a million.”

But a woman differed telling off the woman claiming never to have been cheated on.

“I have heard that woman saying that her husband is perfect. I was in her shoes before and I never imagined that he can never cheat, not even a single day.

I used to proudly say before my friends that my man can never cheat only to find out that he had been cheating, on flash backing I realized he might have started sleeping around even before our wedding.When I found that he had been cheating it hit me so hard I have never fully recovered, yet we had been married for 10 years


The day that woman finds out her husband is cheating on her, she might even die. I used to hear other people talking about their spouses cheating on them and was like how can that even happen?

I thought that my man was getting all he needed from me thus him cheating had never crossed my mind but it was all a lie. Looking back I realized that I had been cheating myself even before I said I do?”

Here’s her advice to her fellow women,

“It’s good to trust but put some percentage of mistrust such that if you find out he is cheating, you won’t collapse and die.”

‘My four sponsors send me 100k every month but I have nothing to show for it,kwani ni pesa ya black magic ?’ Cries city woman (Audio)

Sponsors are here to stay but the saddening thing is that most women have turned it into a business venture milking them left right and center.

During the morning show on Classic 105 a woman confessed to Maina Kageni that she has not one but four sponsors despite the fact that she is working.

‘Her sponsor used to send her 500k every month she is now rotting in Langata Women’s’ City man narrates (Audio)

Here is what she had to say

“I have had 4 sponsors and the beauty about it is that I do not sleep with them,I get money ,goodies but I do not go to bed with them.

All they want is to speak about things they cannot speak with their wife,monthly I receive roughly 25,000 from each ,that’s 100k.

The oldest of them I have been with him for the last 5 years and I am 29 yars old,the current one I met him this year the others I have dated them in between.

I am an administrator.”


‘My mpango wa kando is pregnant with twins, What do I do?’ Cries city man

On being asked what she does with the money, she says

“The money might sound so tempting but believe me there is nothing you can do with it Inapotea tu,I have never slept with any of them they are not my type and they have never requested me to sleep with them

I have nothing tangible I have done with the money sina shamba,nyumba nothing.”

Wife wants mother-in-law to sell her shamba!-Maina told by caller

Maina engaged his audience today on a conversation he had had yesterday with some of his male friends. He said that they had told him to ask why women scream to everyone anytime they help a man, even if it happens on small occasions.

Maina opened the conversation up to the gallery and was shocked at one man’s story. The man spoke about his late friend’s wife, telling him that she had taken her mother-in-law to court in order to get back money that she had used taking care of her departed husband!

A lady I know took her mother-in-law to court because she wanted money from the mother-in-law for the son who had passed on. She wants the money she spent on him when he was sick to be returned back to her. The amount is supposed to be Ksh. 300,000 and she wants her mother-in-law to sell the land she was supposed to give her departed son so that she can recoup her money.

Some of the other comments from the story are below;

Every time that they spend, money on us they go crazy-A man said.

I was one of his 7 wives! Bitter woman tells Maina after shocking discovery

Ladies should give us a break. How much have we spent on them without them shaming us-A man said.

Please tell our women that they should give us a break-A man said.

Even in our marriages, all is well until you become broke. Even a cockroach will know there are problems!-A man said.

Ladies scream so much for equality and yet they don’t know what it is-A man said.

The minute he starts forgetting what I do, then you have to remind him-A lady told Maina.

These women are stuck in a time when men provided everything-A man said.

A man should not depend on their woman-A man said.

Kumbe I was the 3rd wife! Woman married for 30 years tells Maina

Kusaidiana si vibaya. Must every Tom, Dick and Harry know that you helped him once?-A man said.

These men are not men anymore. These women are training their women to be men, so they should not complain when the women become that-A lady told Maina.

I am ready to help a man as long as he is committed to working hard too-A man said.

Men are treating their girlfriends out there better than us and then come and treat us poorly. Do your duties as a man and I will also do mine. If you don’t as the man, then too bad. Let us be fair-A lady told Maina.

‘Stop investigating your men,’ Mwalimu King’ang’i advises women

Mwalimu Kingangi has a bone to pick with Maina Kageni over what he terms as negatively influencing women whose men are polygamous.

Maina on the other hand could not grasp how a man can have many wives and he is not courteous enough to inform the first wife.

The debate came after a woman confessed that she only found recently that her husband is married to someone else.

Maina I found out that my man was married the day he was to take me to their home.

The worst thing is that I have a child with him. We have been together for 6 years, he is a serial cheater.

Maina could not wrap his head around why a man should hide his marital status just because he is providing for you.

‘I pity you for being a bachelor’ Mwalimu King’ang’i tells Maina Kageni

Below are Mwalimu’s thoughts

Maina what is the problem? No one is complaining what is really the issues here?

Ati she has found out he is married after six year? That is not a problem.

For that man to stay with the ‘secret’ for six years he needs an award because women can spy on you in a week.

Exclusive: Maina Kageni finally reveals why he is not getting married

Well here are conditions that Mwalimu Kingangi feels a woman should walk out of a polygamous marriage/relationship.

1. If he is not providing yet he is married to many women.

2. If he is mistreating you.

3. If he is physically abusing you.

4. If he is always away from home

5 .If you are suffering

According to Mwalimu men should do things chini ya maji .

He dedicates this song to Classic 105 fans who want some convincing.

‘My three wives don’t know of each other,’ brags polygamous city man

A Kenyan man shocked Maina Kageni after he confessed that he has three wives and they do not know of the existence of each other. However, his family is aware.

Shocking as it may be, there are men who are proud polygamists.

The man in question confessed to his secret life after a woman confessed that she found out that her man was married with a kid yet they have been together for 6 years.

He says,

Maina I have three wives and they are all known by my family but they do not know each other.

‘Pay dowry or give us back our daughter,’ Diana Maruas family warns Bahati

Below are some of the reactions on the man’s admission

As the other woman do not be excited about meeting the wife. The wife will pretend to be nice but before long the horns will come out and you will see the other side of her.

She knows you are there let it stay that way.


Another fan adds,

If you get to a habit of marrying another wife utaoa tuu. If you are brought to my house I will beat sense into you because you are trespassing.

My advise is, let them live away from me, To the man do not show the first wife your affairs.

‘If you can afford Jameson then pay dowry,’ shouts Mwalimu Kingangi

Mwalimu Kingangi has revealed why he does not look forward to dowry traditions in Kenya being overlooked.

He says that the move will help erode this treasured culture.

The admission came after Maina Kageni confessed that a friend of his was recently asked for Ksh 1 million as dowry.

According to Maina, this is absurd but according to Mwalimu 1 million is OK.

The same way he gets money for Jameson is the same way he should look for dowry.

Ruracio is the Court of Appeal when it comes to marriage.

The problem with young people is that they want shorts cuts but they do not understand that shortcuts do not work.

‘I pity you for being a bachelor’ Mwalimu King’ang’i tells Maina Kageni

Mwalimu adds that its time people respected efforts put by parents on their kids.

You need to realize that this woman has been brought up by a village. Harambees have been held to educate her to become the doctor she is.

Mwalimu Kingangi adds,

You think that by giving her a space at Whisky River that is enough to make her your wife?

Marriage is not a joke so go out there and look for dowry.

Men how much would you pay as dowry for your woman?

Why do women insist on living with men who don’t love them? Asks Maina Kageni

Today’s morning conversation on Classic 105 was based on why women insist on living with a man even when it’s obvious he is not interested.

The debate came about after a woman stabbed the husband.

This after is he made it clear that he is not interested in her or their marriage anymore.

Here is what one fan had to say

Maina what’s the need of staying with that man who feels nothing about you, don’t appreciate you, don’t respect you?

This is been desperate pack and go peacefully if it was never meant to be it was not meant to be.

Another fan adds

I can’t stay where ain’t loved and not appreciated!I’ll leave early morning,you can’t force love!!How do women stay with men who don’t show love surely???

Another caller adds

when you love and trust much you becomes weak in making crucial emotional decisions.

Another caller adds that matters of the heart are a complicated affair.

Maina love is a feeling that can’t be forced. Bad characters also makes it fade away.

Going by the above comments it is easier to walk away when a man/woman turns you down.

After all you have to kiss many frogs before finding the one.

To women if you do not respect my wife you can leave my church and go open yours and change the name,Fools.

You found me in this church with my wife and it is in my church that you got rich stupid,arrogant.

Kenyan Artiste Majirani’s heartbreaking experience in jail leaves him in tears

Nganga continued his rant,

You met me while I was riding a mkokoteni when your wives had knots in their heads and you were in rags ,useless people,trash.

See how Nairobi women propositioned Maina Kageni

Maina Kageni has in the past been questioned on why he is yet to settle down.

Well, recently he escaped narrowly after women offered to be the ‘one’ for him.

Maina innocently posted a photo of some mouth watering chapatis and asked if there was anyone willing to make him such at a fee.

Well we are not sure whether Maina took up any of the offers. One thing we are sure of is that the offers to be the ‘one’ to be cooking him chapo ziligonga mwamba.

Maina is still a single man and the most eligible bachelor man in Kenya if we may add.

Until he calls people for Uthoni in Muranga just know he is not taken.

Maina Kageni reveals one thing he can’t tolerate when he gets married

During the morning conversations on classic 105, couples have on a few occasions stated that they stay in toxic marriages to provide a ‘stable’ family for their kids.

Funny as it may sound, most parents think it’s okay for a child to grow in a toxic family with abusive parents rather than grow with a single parent.

Maina Kageni doesn’t agree. He says

Its painful to hear stories of people who say they stay in a marriage because of the kids.

No matter what is said I cannot understand this narrative.

I cannot tolerate such nonsense.

Exclusive: Maina Kageni finally reveals why he is not getting married

Maina Kageni
Maina Kageni

Maina stated the above after a Classic 105 caller narrated how he has been in a ‘situation-ship’ kind of marriage for the last 17 years.

‘Maina I met my wife 17 years ago and she was a church girl. She was even singing in the choir and everyone vogued  for her.

I had even abstained for almost four years before we got married. When we finally wed she infected me with STI’s more than three times.

At some point she got a job and that is when she showed her true colors.

‘I pity you for being a bachelor’ Mwalimu King’ang’i tells Maina Kageni

 I had had enough of her drama but just when I wanted to throw her out, I found out she was pregnant, so I let her stay for the sake of our baby.

It has been a bumpy ride but I am still with her for the sake of the kids we currently have.

I am just buying time so that they can study.

I grew up without a father and I do not want the same for them.

‘I would marry Maina Kageni even if he was my domestic worker’ Nicole

Days ago we carried out a poll on whether women would want to date Maina Kageni if he was just the guy next door roasting maize in Muthurwa.

This was after a Classic 105 fan stated that women only drool on Maina because he is a wealthy bachelor.

Maina if you were roasting maize in Muthurwa no one would look at you twice. Also if Mwalimu King’ang’i was a mkokoteni puller no one would entertain you.

Men should just know there is no true love in slay queens and second wives.

‘My friend gambled Sh700,000 meant for the church’ Shocked city man narrates

Betting is always frowned upon but for some Kenyans this has been a saving grace given that it has enabled them build houses,pay school fees and even rent.

One man shared his experience with Maina Kageni sharing that he has won more than 1 million on different occasions. To him betting is a necessary evil.

Maina please don’t talk ill about betting because it has enabled me. I have won 700,000, 400,000 and on a different occasion I won 150,000.

What I do is that I do not bet around my wife Whenever she starts talking about how people who bet are idlers I strongly support her.

‘My friend makes 100K per month from betting,I am so envious’ City Man

If only she new I am a betting fan hangeongea. You bet when you are alone ama with the boys.

When I play and lose I just persevere given that its a phase which will come to pass.

Another adds

Maina gambling is not a very good idea. A man I know used money from his wife’s account nearing 700,000. He took it in two bits.

Sadly pesa ilikua ya kanisa so the wife had to ask for a loan so that she could pay back the church.

Soon after the deductions started coming and she had no salary to her name. In the end they could not even afford to pay rent and the husband was less bothered about it.

Another male caller adds
