Kiambu Women’s Rep reveals why Kikuyu women are crushing on Maina Kageni

Kiambu Women’s Representative Ann Wamuratha has said that Kikuyu men are not romantic, which is why many Kikuyu women are crushing on veteran radio presenter Maina Kageni.

Speaking at a wedding she attended, Wamuratha said that Kikuyu men do not compliment their wives or make them feel special. She said that even her own husband, a pastor, does not tell her that she is beautiful.

“I will dress up nicely and ask him, ‘Am I not beautiful?’ and he will reply, ‘Where?'” she said.

Wamuratha said that this lack of romance is a major reason why many Kikuyu women are attracted to Kageni, who is known for his smooth talk and his ability to make women feel special.

“Kageni is a romantic,” she said. “He knows how to make a woman feel special.”

Wamuratha’s comments have sparked a debate on social media, with some people agreeing with her and others saying that she is generalizing.

“I think she is right,” said one Twitter user. “Kikuyu men are not romantic.”

“I disagree,” said another. “My husband is Kikuyu and he is very romantic.”

Ultimately, whether or not Kikuyu men are romantic is a matter of opinion. However, Wamuratha’s comments have certainly struck a chord with many women, who are longing for more romance in their relationships.

Here are some additional thoughts on the topic:

  • It is important for men to make their wives feel special, both verbally and physically.
  • Compliments can go a long way in making a woman feel loved and appreciated.
  • Romance is not just about grand gestures; it can also be about the small things, like cooking dinner for your wife or giving her a massage.
  • If you want your wife to be happy, make sure you are putting in the effort to make her feel special.

Maina Kageni speaks about Sauti Sol breakup

Kenya’s most successful boy band, Sauti Sol, announced on May 20, 2023 that they will be taking an indefinite hiatus. The group, which consists of Bien-Aimé Baraza, Willis Chimano, Savara Mudigi, and Polycarp Otieno, has been together for over 20 years and has released six studio albums.

In a statement, Sauti Sol said that they are taking the hiatus to pursue personal projects. “We are not sure how long the break will be, but we know that it is important for us to step away from the band for a while to focus on our individual growth,” the statement said.

The group thanked their fans for their support over the years and said that they are grateful for the opportunity to have shared their music with the world. “We will miss performing for you, but we know that this is the best thing for us right now,” the statement said.

Radio King Maina Kageni, who is a big fan of Sauti Sol, wished the group well on their hiatus. “Go well and enjoy your hiatus and may you do your personal projects successfully,” Kageni said on his morning show on Classic 105.

Kageni also said that he is already loving the new artists that have emerged from Sauti Sol, such as Fathermoh and Ssaru. Fathermoh is a singer and songwriter who has released several hit singles, including “Kaskie Vibaya.” Ssaru is a singer and dancer who has also released several hit singles, including “Sip Sip.”

Sauti Sol’s hiatus will begin after their upcoming tour across the US, Europe, and Canada. The tour will start on May 21, 2023, and will end on December 16, 2023. The group’s encore performance will take place at the third annual Sol Fest in Nairobi on December 16th.

Sauti Sol is one of the most successful and popular music groups in Africa. They have won numerous awards, including the BET Award for Best International Act: Africa in 2016. The group has also collaborated with international artists such as Damian Marley, Yemi Alade, and Tiwa Savage.

Sauti Sol’s hiatus is a sad day for their fans, but it is also an opportunity for the group to grow and explore new things. The group has said that they plan to return to music in the future, and their fans can only wait and see what they will create next.

Maina Kageni explains why marriage does not favor him

Media personality Jalang’o recently held a candid interview with fellow radio king, Maina Kageni; allowing fans to learn a thing or two about the Classic 105 radio host.

As usual, the interview wa detailed as we got to learn the real-life Maina leads away from the radio waves. Speaking about an issue many have been asking about the guy; we finally got to understand why we never see him with a girlfriend or wife.

Maina Kageni
Maina Kageni

According to Maina, his morning show on Classic 105 has taught him that marriage is a scam. Not his words but clearly, marriage is not something Maina has been dreaming about or is planning on being apart of. The fella opened up saying;

Some of the things I hear on the show about marriage are scary. It has taught me one thing, marriage is not for everyone but never say never.

Marriages equals to quick death

From Maina says is that he cannot handle stress coming from a woman; nor his freedom taken away in the name of  ‘marriage.’ To prove his point, the guy gave an example of Sir Charles Njonjo saying;

and I believe that, you know why? Sir Charles Njonjo got married at 54 or 59 na ako 100 sai ..wewe oa tutakuzika 63.

For those who think marriage is everything or rather those who insist on single men settling down; Maina had this to say:

Maina with son, Nathan

Wewe ndo utajimaliza, coz what married people do is to try and keep u and impress. You try and do crazy, out of this world things that you think she will remember forever, that’s how you kill yourself.

Well, just to be clear – Maina is not against having a family since he has an adorable son ‘Nathan’ who looks everything like his daddy; but baby mama remains as a mystery to fans.

Talking about marriage, one of the most asked questions about Maina is why he’s not yet married. The issue has over the years culminated to rumours about him being gay; which is not the case. The 47 year old has disclosed his love for women; but admits he hasn’t been interested in marriage. Maina is without a doubt a wealthy; from the sleek cars and lavish lifestyle. In an interview on Jalang’o TV, he divulged his reason for staying single till now saying;

” When you listen to my show everyday, it’s scary sometimes because you hear a lot of stuff. And I’ve heard it for years and years. But it’s taught me one thing; sometimes marriage is not for everyone… And then mi mtu wa freedom… What you do is you take your time”

It’s Never Too Late!

Maina gave the example of Charles Njonjo, who got married when he was in his late 50’s; which hinted that he might consider marrying after his career.

”You know what? Never say never, and I believe that. Do you know why? Charles Njonjo got married at 54 or 59. And he’s at 100 now; hajakufa.”

Women have been chasing after Maina over the years, but he has never shown interest. Maybe he’s planning to marry later on.

However this past weekend, Maina Kageni left many with mixed feelings shortly after introducing a young man believed to be his son. This is because of the caption he chose to accompany the never seen before photo shared on his page.

Through his social media pages, Maina Kageni went on to caption the post saying;

Happy birthday, Young King…. I love you… May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow…..

Fans in the comment section however feel that this could be the heir to Maina Kageni’s wealth. This is because it’s obvious to see the resemblance between the two; and come to think of it, how many times does Maina post kids on his social media page?

Anyway most fans wrote;

Discussion: Kenyan women can’t just stay silent after giving a man a few shillings 

Can you support your man financial? That was a wild topic on Twitter yesterday after a woman called  during his show to confess how she has supported her man and even gives her money now and them.

The caller initiated a flurry of calls from women who some confessed that they do give their spouse some money, ignoring that they should be the bread winners of the house.

Even after the show ended, the discussion continued on social media as many tried to justify why it shouldn’t happen — or should — whenever two people are in a relationship. Many women argued that a man should be independent financial and never ask any financial support from his woman unless it’s very necessary, while others insisted that you should help your man because he also helps you.


Some many also claimed that women can never shut their mouths once they assist their man and always tell it to whoever’s ready to listen.

“I can’t help a man financially, I will tell him to go get a job, even for mjengo,” said Purity.

Another one said “If it were not for me bwanangu hangekuwa popote saa hii. Mimi namsaidia kila siku Everyday I wake up in the morning namwmbea, Mamabo yote namshugulikia, ile siku nitawacha itakuwa mwisho wake.”

Some men also didn’t want to be helped by their women and would rather suffer before they ask for money from her.
