Who is the lucky girl? ‘Hallo Nairobi girls, Maina Kageni is finally ‘taken’

Classic’s Maina Kageni waded into the issue of inheritance and why men leave problems with who gets what.

He spoke referring to the good example set by his late dad.

Maina and his siblings did not enter a fight over who would inherit his millions.

He started off by saying,

Executors of wills always mess up beneficiaries. In most cases these beneficiaries (children) are too young, and they are taken advantage of.

When my dad passed on I was two. He left a will with very good executors who when we turned 21 everything was transferred accordingly

He added

The executors my dad left absolutely loved him and they loved us.

Maina also noted that he has never heard of disputes for women’s property, and wondered why his father never left the entire inheritance to his mother Rahab.

How come it’s different when it comes to women’s property? Women’s property is never disputed. It’s very clear. How are they doing it? How have you organized your succession, coz men are totally useless at it? Why can’t you leave it to your wife to manage until they are of age?

Maina then revealed

even my dad was guilty why didn’t he leave everything to my mother?


Back in 2013, Maina opened up about his late father in a heartfelt note online

I never knew my father… he passed when I was barely out of my diapers… but Mum raised two boys and one girl with courage, set the standards and we never lacked anything… she encouraged us, nurtured us and was and is still there for us when we lost our way or tumbled in this road we call life…

Happy Father’s Day to you, Mum… Muturi, Ciku and I love you for being the best Mother AND Father to us!

‘I’ve selected the music and pictures for my funeral’ man reveals

The late Dutch billionaire Tob Cohens will, will be opened after much controversy over its contents.

His widow Sarah Wairimu has indicated through her lawyer that she won’t attend the planned will reading because the confidentiality of the document had been impugned after the Star, citing a Dutch newspaper, published its contents on September 16.

The Star had reported that Cohen, at the time estranged from his wife, had given his sister his Sh400 million Kitisuru villa.

Algemeen Dagblad (AD), the Dutch newspaper on whose reporting the Star relied on, quoted Cohen’s sister Gabrielle as saying they have planned to take possession of the villa of their murdered brother in a matter of weeks.

The idea of a will being written while the person is still alive has elicited mixed reaction.

A Classic 105 man shocked audiences after revealing the extreme lengths he has gone to, to prepare for his eventual death.

From selecting the pictures to be used, to the wording of the obituary, and the music for the day, the man had no qualms admitting that he is defying African myths about planning for a funeral when still alive.

In my laptop is a folder called finally: it has music to be played, the pictures to be used, and the words for the obituary. I have even written the eulogy it just needs to be edited

He added

Let me do the things the way I want them to be done, because it is me, nobody can write my life history better

Tupac had a strange request in his Will that his friends did it anyway


The proceedings for a last will and testament are usually so simple, it boils down to leaving houses to family.

But there are those among us, who are so extra that what they wanted in their wills is unbelievable.

The late rapper 2pac was one man who outdid others.

In Tupac’s song “Black Jesus” he mentioned a final wish of his.

The request was so unusual that his friends immediately agreed to do it.


In the song, the rapper expressed a desire for his friends to actually smoke his ashes.

Believe it or not, they actually did. Several of his closest friends mixed his ashes with a joint and smoked it.

Here at Classic 105, we have been celebrating his 23rd death anniversary and we hope you have been listening.

Rest in Peace Tupac.

The difference between wills written by Kenyan men and women


It’s been quite a week, from Kenyans learning that the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth has a secret wife and son, who has been included in his will.

To Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko encouraging ladies to expose politicians they have children with. This has proved quite a tricky issue.

Maina and Mwalimu debated this topic, after Mwalimu accused women of deliberately leaving men out of their wills, while expecting to be beneficiaries in their husbands.

Women called in to challenge Mwalimu, and brought out the stark differences between a man and a woman’s will.

The only listed beneficiary in a woman’s will is her children, while in a husbands last testament comprises of side chicks, secret children and countless other people.

Do you agree with this?

Read the confessions below:

Maina started with his advise to women while answering Mwalimu’s question.

He said

A man who makes you cry, a man who cheats on you girls if he is in your will, remove him today shouted maina.

A woman narrated

heheeh I have four kids, I’m a manager, my kids are beneficiaries, weuh if I die he will use my wealth with another woman. Then my kids are left suffering, let him get his own wealth, and leave mine alone to my children, ati make him a beneficiary?NEVER, he is only next of kin, let him hustle for his, you know in the event that he dies I will be left taking care of these kids, plus mimi nikikufa I am very sure one month atatafuta mtu, so awachie zangu kwa watoto

Another woman concurred saying

How now tuwaongeze kwa will how now? Look here you can give him money alafu aende kufurahisha mwingine ! That’s why my money is for my kids only..

So girls, is your husband a beneficiary in your will?

Ladies, would you add your husband as a beneficiary in your will asks Maina


Ladies, should anything happen to you would your husband be a beneficiary in your will?

The death of Kibra MP Ken Okoth has caused a storm.

His side chick and their son emerged, bringing about the issue of wills and inheritance.

The ‘secret’ wife wanted her son recognized in his will and went to court to delay the burial.

The five-year-old son, whose pictures with Okoth have been shared online, is well known among Okoth’s close circle and family members.

Family sources corroborated to the Star that Okoth had been taking care of the child’s upkeep, including paying for his school fees at a high-end school in Nairobi.

Maina and Kingangi debated this highly emotive issue on Tuesday morning.

Mwalimu wanted to know if husbands are beneficiary’s in men’s will, just like they demand of husbands.

This was based on a male callers thoughts who asked

Why is it that women, and even a rich one at that don’t write us in wills? Why is it that when these women die, you never hear disputes over their wills? If we love each other, why can’t you include me in your will? They have money, have built homes, who are they leaving this wealth to?

Mwalimu excitedly played his Kayamba, as the man continued ranting.

Mwalimu says nowadays women have more money than men, practically

so in that case can we now say comfortably in the spirit of equality ata yeye aandike something for me as the loving husband, first of all wao huandikia nani?

Ask them where do they take their money, who do they write?

Maina asked the question that in turn generated a heated discussion.
