Maina and Nathan.

This week, radio host Maina Kageni shocked his fans after he posted a photo of himself hanging out with a young boy named Nathan, with many assuming it was his son.

“Twinning with Nathan… Took him for his ­ first haircut… Keep smiling…. #JoysOfLife…” posted Kageni.

Shaffie Weru also commented, “Finally you introduce #NathanKageni to Kenya.”

What followed was congratulatory messages, with fans demanding to see Nathan’s mother.

“Baba Nathan bado Mama Nathan tumuone,” said Jane Wanji.

“Haia! Maina where have you been hiding this good looking boy? Hîhîîhî... that’s a good surprise though, sasa tukuite baba nani?” added Nderitu Janet.

However, Heads Up has learnt that the boy in question is Maina’s godchild and the mother is his close friend and workmate.

“Maina is the godparent to Nathan. On that day, he had taken him for a shave, but, as usual, Kenyans concluded that he was his son,” Shaffie Weru told Heads Up.
