The Friday morning conversation on April 16 was quite an eye opener for Maina Kageni ho said he had no idea that how a husband talks to his wife on the phone is a major clue he is done with his wife.

Maina prompted responses from men, when he described how horrified he was after eavesdropping on his friends conversation with his wife.

Maina said the man sounded so cold, and when asked about his behaviour, the pals told Maian that ‘he is done’

Callers gave Maina examples of how they respond rudely to their wives on phone that should tell a woman her man no longer feels her.

1. Sema: Maina wondered what kind of a husband greets his wife this way when he picks her call. Seriously, don’t we only talk to bothersome people this way?

2. Nitakucall back: Many male callers argued that a man who loves his wife never tells her this when she calls him. They insisted this kind of response is a clue he is done.

3. Kiasi: Another response that is so rude according to Maina who wondered why a man even bothers with a phone call.

4. Kuna shiuda? A husband who picks up a call and asks this instead of saying something like hi sweetie is a major clue.

5. Tutaangalia hiyo maneneo: Girls if your conversation goes a little something like this, that mans feeling for you are off.

Why you should invest in a holiday home

Investing in real estate is almost always a good idea, and when it comes to a holiday home, it not only provides an escape from your day-to-day life, but also the opportunity to make some money.

The idea that you can retreat to your secluded sanctuary when things get too much is an attractive prospect for many, and it has led to the increase of people investing in second homes, sometimes for personal use, but most often as a way to generate extra income.

Like with all investments you make, ensure that you have done your due diligence so that you are making the right decision for you. But in this article, we are going to talk about why choosing to purchase a home away from home may be a great idea.

Generally buying a holiday home puts you at a lower risk than other real estate investments. This is because they are often in high tourist areas, meaning that you can charge high nightly rates, especially during peak seasons.

Secondly, they are quite easy to manage. Usually when you purchase a holiday home, companies who are offering holiday homes for sale can also manage it for you. Which means you don’t have to worry about things like cleaning it regularly, fixing things that may have broken and other things that you really do not have time to do.

Like with most real estate, the value of your holiday home will usually increase over time. This means that when you are ready to sell you property you will usually make more money than you invested.

If you have been thinking about taking the leap to owning your own luxury holiday home, Maiyan is now offering luxury cottages on their Swara Ranch. The development is set on a scenic 80 acres located 20km north of Nanyuki, next to their other luxury property Maiyan villas.

There are currently 34 beautiful modern bungalows complete, surrounded by stunning green spaces and spectacular views.  And Dr James Mworia, Centum Chief Executive spoke about the properties saying,

“It makes money for you. And when you are coming, you just call and say I’ll be here on these particular dates and you don’t have to worry about, ‘is your unit clean, is your DSTV working?’ You will find it done.”

“I’m the embassy myself” Why Maina Kageni prefers not to get into marriage

Classic 105 presenter Maina Kageni says the reason he will never marry is that he wants his freedom.

Maina was speaking in an interview with the Churchill show Journey series.

According to the radio legend, his brother and sister have children and they are happy. He is the last born of a family with three children.

During the interview when asked about when he is getting married, he told Churchill to tell people that if they wanna know why he is not getting married please listen to his show in the morning on Classic 105.

“Listen to the conversations and then make your recommendation to me, inbox. It looks like a lot of work. To much work.”

“I had a strong father figure in SK Macharia” Maina Kageni speaks about his family

Maina’s breakfast show is mainly a discussion of what couples go through in their marriage life. Most people call in to share their experience in marriages.

Maina mentioned a prior interview in which flamboyant businessman Chris Kirubi termed marriage as enslavement.

“CK said marriage is a jail. I’m a free bird. I need to move. I need to wake up and decide I’m going to Dar-es-salaam tomorrow, no questions. I don’t know how to ask for permission to go somewhere. I’m the embassy myself,” he said.

In one of his conversations on his breakfast show, Maina and King’ang’i were speaking about how marriage ends up getting boring to a point of looking at each other like siblings; Maina responded by telling Mwalimu King’ang’i

“Never ever, so that I end up staying with someone who is like my sister? The things women go through just to look good for a man only for him to say he sees you like a sister!”

According to him, seeing how selfish men are…Marriage remains a meaningless word in his dictionary.

Maina went on to say;

“I find it crazy. men are the most selfish people in the world. Why didn’t they say it from the word go that such things happen?. They should so that someone can know what they are getting themselves into.”

Maina says he didn’t have trouble with his childhood as he was provided for with everything.

Even if I don’t go home for a week, she shouldn’t call and ask where I am! Captain Kale

Maina Kageni brought up an interesting topic today. The enigmatic host was at a loss for words as to how men respond to their wives when they are asked uncomfortable questions.

The host said, “I learnt a lot yesterday. When a woman asks for something and you say no or nothing in response, why do you get upset when she asks for an explanation? She’s just asking a question. Doesn’t she deserve an explanation? Kwani she’s a baby?”

King’ang’i was of the school of thought that when men says no it should be enough. “When a man says no, its enough.”

Adding, “That is an investigation. DPP imeingia hao. Huyo ni Kinoti. It will end in premium tears. Wewe si mtoto. They are bullies. By the time she asks you a question, she has already done an investigation.

Listeners promptly chimed in with varying responses to the debate with most of the answers split along gender lines-The men insisting siding with King’ang’i’s thinking while the women sided with Maina’s thinking.

Those responses are below:

Whether its wrong or right, a polite response will not cost anyone anything-A lady said.

Whenever she asks you for anything, she knows she is on the wrong-A man said.

If you come to my house, you are under my care. I am not answerable to you. By saying no, I am trying to take care of her-A man said.

We know what’s good and bad for our women. Their fathers handed them over to us. We know what is good for them-Captain Kale said.

In my home I am senior Moi and Senior Kenyatta. My word is law-Wakanai said.

Once you give your wife freedom she will act well. Kwani ni mtoto? A man asked.

An explanation makes a difference-A lady said.

Women ask the question so they can start drama. The more you explain the more drama you will get-A man said.

You cannot argue with your wife and win. Even if you’re an advocate, you will lose-A man said.

What men don’t understand, is that when we ask them something we want the full explanation-A woman said.

The issue at hand has no compromise. A 2-year-old kid deserves an explanation over a man’s wife. The kid hasn’t experienced much so can be taught but a woman has more experience and a such shouldn’t deserve an explanation. A no should be enough-A man said.

I can never use the word sorry with my wife. When I tell her no, its enough and she should know why-A man said.

I am avoiding a lot of questions when I say no. You don’t need to question a man on a lot of things. When she asks a lot of questions she is trying to pima you-A man said.

A question from her will lead to another one and you will end up being rude-A man said.

Do we look like we are your fathers? Even if I don’t come home for a week, don’t call and ask where I am!-Captain Kale.

It hurts when men think that we need them more than they need us. It hurts. They should style up and give explanations.

In Islam you can’t do anything without your husband. Ni haram-A lady said.

Tell them we need an explanation for what we do. I need an explanation cause I have a mind of my own-A woman said.

Saying sorry will not stop you from being a man. My grandfather used to say that you shouldn’t say sorry if you’re right. Women are also human beings. Explanations are needed-A man said.

Mimi siwezi ishi na dictator like his words are final!-A woman proclaimed.

Gospel Singer Guardian Angel has been the talk of the town for falling in love with Esther Musila who is a 50-year-old single mother of three.

Esther who has remained mum about the whole issue appeared on Bonga na Jalas TV to speak about their relationship.

Musila says she is 50-years-old and yes, she knows what she wants in life.

Esther disclosed that she met Guardian through Maina Kageni before their love blew.

“I had restrained myself from having an interview although I think it good for me to also fight for myself because some people who are judging me or talking about me, don’t know much about my life,” she said.

“They don’t know my journey they COULD be hurting my kids with the things they are saying about me. 

I am 50-year-old I have been through life and I know what I want with the remainder of my life that God has given me.”

 “My mum died at 72 years and that very young and if I have to live to the life she lived, that’s 20 years and I want those to be my best life starting now.

Musila recounted of when this year started saying she said to herself that she wants to be Esther.

“I have been through life 50 is a big year but I purposed and said this is going to be my year, I would do what Esther wants and I will make Esther happy, my kids are grown, the last born is 22 years, they are running their lives, but am still their mother but as Esther I have my life a which I want to live. So I am living my life, my rules, I am happy and Guardian said we met through Maina Kageni.

I met my 50-year-old girlfriend through Maina Kageni – Guardian Angel reveals


Esther says the first time she heard of Guardian was on Classic 105 while driving to work.

I heard this song Maina plays and I sent him a messaged asking what song is that and who sang it and he said Rada by Guardian Angel, I got to my office and went to Google and searched Guardian Angel and I was like I have never heard of this guy, I play that song the whole day and by the time I was going home, I knew the all the words.

 That same week I said to Maina can I meet Guardian Angel that song has touched and spoke to me as a person that your Radar needs to change. 

It was the 13th of March when they announced the 1st Corona cases and theis week we were told we were working from home. My Birthday was coming up in May and 50 being a big number I had plans. So with Corona happening, I was like what should I do, then one day when my mum had passed on in 2016. Guardian has a foundation is saw it good to come under his foundation so I went out and ask people to collect money and also did the song which I released on my Birthday so that is where the Journey started. It was not anything planned.”


Guardian said the society is so quick to judge him even before they hear his side of the story.

“I have never been happy in my life like I am today, Genuinely happy. 

Those who have said this guy is going to love his mother, listen the word says, you will come together and become one, if this woman is older than you or your mother the minute you agree to become one, the nonsense of mother-ness ends and she becomes your wife. So if we have agreed to be in marriage she is my wife, it doesn’t matter how old she is, I am the husband, that’s is if we are married,” he said.

From a truck driver to being Kenya’s most prominent media personality: The rise of Maina Kageni

We have heard his hearty laughter every day for years,  as Kenyans tune in to Classic 105 just to listen to Maina Kageni.

A simple boy from Muranga who went on to become the most prominent radio personality in Kenya.

His story is that of from grass to grace because he was only brought up by his mum after losing his dad at a tender age.

“My dad died when I was two years old. Luckily for him, he left behind a will and after his death, it was entrusted to trustees.

Immediately I turned 21, the properties were transferred to me.”

Maina then left Kenya for the UK to study, but as it turned out, he never set foot in a lecture hall.

After arriving in the UK, he chose to work rather than attend school as he later confessed.

He began working as a truck driver and fish distributor for a Chinese firm.

His mother was not aware of the development and carried on with Kageni’s graduation celebration plans when the time was due.

“For the 25 years, my mum only forgave me last year.” He said in a Q&A with fans on YouTube

Maina said his mother had so much faith in him and, unlike his brother and sister, he was given his school fees in cash.

“I ate all my school fees by living large in the UK.

My mom found out and she was not happy with me until last year.

She called me home and after dinner, she told me she had forgiven me for not going to university.” He said

Contrary to what many believe Maina never planned on being a radio presenter.

“I got on the radio by pure fluke. DJ Pinye and I had brought over some deejays from the United Kingdom and we went to Capital FM to book airtime to advertise the gig.

We were then asked for sh40, 000 for the voiceover. We did not have any more cash so I offered to do it.

John Wilkins liked it and offered me a job! If I had that money on me, I would not be on radio.” he says.

His career started at Capital FM, he then later worked for Nation FM, KISS FM, and is currently at Classic 105.

List of celebrities brought up by strong single mothers

For a man who enjoys his money working for him, Maina Kageni drives high-end cars.

His latest acquisition is a BMW 2020 X6 sDrive40i.

Giving more details about his car Maina said

‘It’s the only one of that mode. How can I describe the color? It’s a dark metallic chocolate.’

Before adding

‘Life is short and you should enjoy your life whichever way you find, those kind of cars are my devil, aki I have worked hard, my God, you gotta enjoy your life, if you can afford something get it, life is not a rehearsal.’

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.’

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.

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.”
