“Seen y’all saying: Men will embarrass you 😂 that Mimi pia nitaachwaa 🤣 will I die? Is it a death sentence?? Nimewachwa na nikawacha watu before & I’m still alive. 😂😂Ladies. All your dating life you should be prepared kuwacha, kuwachwa na kuachana. Na when it happens unawachika tu.

Maina Kageni speaks on Marrying Sanaipei Tande
Seasoned Media Personality Maina Kageni is yet to give up on his pursuit of Singer Sainapei Tande, after confessing that he would marry her any day if she agrees.
Maina said that he has always had a crush on Ms Tande and given a chance he is ready to start a family with her.
“Who would you Kiss, date and Marry between; Nadia Mukami, Sanaipei Tande and Tanasha Donna?
With no hesitation Maina replied; "I will marry Sanaipei. I have always crushed on her, I have asked her to have my baby she has refused from kitambo. I will marry her at the drop of a heart anyday. She is my all-time crush and forever”.
Not the first time
This is not the first time Maina is talking about Sanaipei refusing to have his baby. In January 2021, Maina said that he was willing to give the singer Sh500, 000 monthly as child upkeep back in 2007 but Ms Tande turned down his offer of having a baby for him.
“She is glowing, so voluptuous anakaa poa, why did you refuse to have my baby? I gave you a proposition in 2007. I was ready to be giving you half a million shillings a month, a house kwanza in Lavington, and anything you wanted. Do you even know my mum had told me that if I get a child she will give me that house of hers in Lavington?” posed Maina Kageni.
Ms Tande's Take
Surprised by his confession, Sanaipei revealed that she was forced to turn down his proposal as he had left out the important details of the deal.
“But you see Maina you told me if I never want to work a single day in my life, that was the proposition. But I am the type of person who has to work,” Sanaipei defended herself.
However, in May this year, Maina said that he has no plans to join the marriage institution.

Jalango's Sh18,000 refund saga takes new twist as he exposes Mboya
Kiss 100 presenter Jalang'o is in another war of words with upcoming musician Vincent Mboya.
The two have been on the spotlight after Mboya told off Jalang'o after helping him clear his Sh18,000 rent arrears.
The 21-year-old has now shared a screenshot claiming that he deposited the refund into the comedian's mobile money wallet after he refused to collect it physically.
However, in a new twist Jalang'o said Mboya had not actually sent the money and that the message shared on Instagram was fabricated.

"I have just spoken to this boy to stop using my name in his persuit of fame! This is an edited message! I can confirm to you that there is no money he has sent me! Ni Ujinga tu!," the Kiss 100 presenter said.
"I hope one day he will learn that there are people wishing to get this money that I honestly gave him! I cant imagine that this is the same boy who came crying and has just turned to be a monster! I have warned him against using my name for clout...anasema ni ngoma anatoa!" Jalang'o added.
Mboya had earlier given Jalas 48 hours to collect his refund but the comedian said that he would not.
Lang’ata Parliamentary Hopeful explained that he helped the young man wholeheartedly and if he felt offended by his words then he is sorry.

The Bitter Rant
“I’m living a drama free life because I no longer hang with fake people like you. You were here for the likes and followers. Every time I tagged you, you go excited like kid in a candy store. The breakup with you was more than what your gossiping for TV clout.
I’m the last person you want to provoke. Normally I will expose you, I will strip you naked. Don’t come for me unless if I have called for you. Your ex-husband will be shocked if he was married to a mahosha or a wife. Come slow sis, I don’t do drama, I burnt all building I no longer live there. Peace" said Zari Hassan.

…Zari said that I must stop talking to you (Lasizwe) and the person that we hook Zari with, I decide to ignore Zari and took your side. I did not like what she said and I did not see the need to ask her or address it because I font want a friend that I honest only in my presence, so I did not see the need to explain myself”.

Eric Omondi who has declared his support for Wanjigi was gifted the Chrystler Crossfire during a visit to the businessman's home in Muthaiga.
