Why Kenyan women want men who earn six figure salaries

 

Do you watch the dating show Perfect Match on Ebru TV? Some episodes are so cringeworthy, and it’s all because of what the girls say.

The demands by the young girls to the fellas makes many upset. From wanting a man who drives a Range Rover, to wanting a tall, light skinned man.

Young women are not shying away from declaring that they won’t date a man without a car, or one who doesn’t earn six figure salary.

They have no time for a man who can’t provide for their needs.

Mike Mondo and Mwalimu Kinga’ngi discussed this on the morning conversation.

Mike described why he wanted to open up discussion about slay queen dating demands.

I want to share with you Kingangi, yesterday I went to my child’s school today and I meet these young ladies who were having this conversation that was so interesting it got heated.

They were saying they want a man to have a job, to make six figures, I want him to be driving, to be paying a mortgage.

I was listening and I asked them what about you. So you want all these from the men, what are you bring on the table. We got into this conversation. Isn’t it time men start making lists about women?

Yes you are pretty but aside from your physical attributes what are you bringing?

Those expectation that you put on men, what is it that you are putting on the table?

He opened up discussion to listeners and most who commented were women.

A woman said:

ehh tunaleta watoto so we are like the shamba you cultivate it uweke manure ukiweza fertilizer we carry your babies so that its the main thing in a marriage, we brign children. the key thing in a marriage children are very important, so he has to have everything a woman wants and she brings children, that’s why we are looking for men with six figures, and those who drive big cars na waende shule poa in fact I should go in that house with a leso only.

Another said:

Morning Conversation: Kenyans have this habit of giving unsolicited advice

 
Kenyans are known to give unsolitcited advice on social media and in real life.
You receive a barrage of advice that leaves you feeling worse than before, because maybe you’ve already exhausted all those options, maybe you can’t afford those suggestions, maybe the prompts are inappropriate for your situation.

The tricky thing about unsolicited advice: as the giver it may feel helpful, but it’s rarely what the person suffering needs. In the end everyone feels worse for wear.

This formed the basis for the mornign conversation on Classic 105 with Mike Mondo and Mwalimu Kingangi.

Mwalimu sought to know from Kenyans:
Why do Kenyans like poking their noses where they don’t belong in other peoples afairs. You know wazungus they mind their own business. Case example Bob Collymore, you know it has taken less than 72 hours because that was his wish.

Mike also asked: Why are we like that? We have a habit of poking our noses in things that don’t involve us, why are we this way?

One caller said
Us like Africans we are, we are used to certain things, and it wont stop. You see like how people have been left out of Bob Collymores fuenral plans etc, we must comment about it. We are used to eating property left behind by the late we dont go to their homes to mourn. We just want to see what wealth they have.

Another said
If there’s one thing I’ve learnt fom us losing Bob is that for you to be sucessful you don’t need to have a thousand or a million friends, you just need to have a small circle of those who believe in you. All those scenarios we are sseeing people talking about is that ill feeling that this guy made it against all odds. And that’s common for hman beings, someone wants to come to your funeraal not to eulogize but to see how you lived life. The guy had a simple life but he was one of the most peowerful CEO’s in East and Central Africa. Life is all about a few friends, being humble and bleiving in God. That’s it, you just need a few good friends.
Another caller added
You know we live in an egocentric world with people livign to rip you of the little you have. Like I was going through the last interview Jeff did the Vcollymore. He acknowledged it is very expensive for funeral, but we wnt to give the late beffiting burial. It is not impirtant anymore it is jus tour ego, we just need to accept people personal view of how they want to be treate donce they are dead.

Another added:
We just like being there, tunakuwa tuu, its very common to see some of us feeling important.

What do you think? Are we there to help in situations?

Is it important for a woman to know how to cook in 2019 asks Maina Kageni

Ever heard a phrase that says, “Don’t marry a beautiful wife but marry a lady who can cook, for beauty fades but hunger does not.”

Maina and Kingangi in today’s morning conversation discussed if it was still important for a wife to know how to cook in 2019.

Maina posed the question: Are ladies still judged by their cooking? Where does she find time in today’s economy to cook?

Maina was of opinion that cooking is a hobby that should be done when one is ready to.

One response from a man was that women MUST know how to cook because,

when we marry these ladies we normally pay a lot of pride price and so when they come we expect them to know how to cook or they rather remain at their parents’ home.’

Another caller said,

If my wife does not cook and leaves the house girl that duty then its up to her because the house girl will be my cook and maybe my food in future. This comment left Maina wondering as to how one gets to live with such a husband.

Relationship guru Lisa Gaitho has a different opinion on relationships now

In the current generation almost all ladies are employed so like any other person they go out to work in the morning and come late at night and so they won’t get enough time to prepare food because both share expenses.

In other words cooking should also engage two parties both the husband and wife.

A female caller was of opinion that the modern woman should cook for their husbands. She went ahead to say that just as the way the woman finds time to go to the market to buy the cereals and all that she should also find time to cook for the family and if not then she should stay single.

Singer Akothee Shows Off Her Cooking Skills

Some of the comments were;

If a woman does not know how to cook then she should know how to gossips, she has to know one thing.

If your woman does not know how to cook don’t complain you are in a relationship not a restaurant. 

A woman who does not know how to cook is a scam.

Diamond Platnumz should not help his father – Maina Kageni shouts

There has been a debate online if Diamond Platnumz should help pay his fathers medical bills, after he reached out to his popular son for assistance.

The singer and his father do not see eye to eye, after Diamond revealed his father deserted their family.

‘Please sit down and talk to daddy,’ – Diamond’s sister Zubeida begs star

Maina Kagnei weighed in on the topic, seeing as he too has a deadbeat father.

Maina in a conversation with Mwalimu Kingangi on air confessed that from personal experience, deadbeat fathers don’t deserve any help from their grown up children.

‘I know those cases personally, where those fathers are just useless fokojembe’s and and you know yourselves’.

Diamond does not need his fathers blessing. What was he thinking is going to happen after mistreating that boy for years? Me I agree with Diamond. There are some fathers by the way if you ever make it don’t even approach them to you they are dead, Maina shouted.

Last year in an interview with a Tanzania blog, the father opened up about his struggle getting out of bed because of a leg problem and the pain he endures.
