Celebrated radio host Maina Kageni was recently away on vacation and a week ago he shared a video where he was in the company of a lady identified as Shiro wa Kinuthia.
Maina, who is now back in the country, described Shiro as the ‘loveliest person ever’, lauding her academic prowess and persona.
As expected, many asked Maina to put a ring on it and he played along, asking Kenyans to prepare for her grand homecoming.
“Shiro wa Kinuthia or Shiro wa Maina is the loveliest person ever, the most fun person ever and she’s a doctor going for 2nd doctorate and her PhD.
"The question everyone is asking is when she is coming home. Shiro is coming home next month. Mshone vitenge muwe tayari na muanze kupractise soprano na alto,” he said.
In a video he shared a fortnight ago, Maina described Shiro as his ‘roommate for Miami’ raising eyebrows as to whether the two are an item.
“Look at this woman…she is called Shiro wa Kinuthia…I am covered for the week,” said Maina.
Maina’s take on marriage
In a recent interview with Jalang’o, Maina did not rule out the possibility of getting married but stressed that he was in no hurry to settle down with a woman.
He gave the example of former Attorney General Sir Charles Njonjo saying he got married well into his 50s and he is still doing well.
“Sometimes marriage is not for everyone but never say never and I believe that, you know why? Sir Charles Njonjo got married at 54 or 59 na ako 100 sai...wewe oa tutakuzika 63.
“Wewe ndio utajimaliza, coz what married people do is to try and keep up 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,” he said.
Adding: “First of all, your woman will always have more money than you, because she didn’t spend, she saves it. So don’t think buying her a Mercedes Benz is impressing her.”
Maina also said that he loves the freedom that comes with being single since he does not need any ‘approvals’ to do what he likes.
“Mimi ni mtu wa freedom.. sai tuseme Corona imeisha na naamka nasema I want to be in US in two weeks. Na ninaenda. Do you think you can do that when you are married? You have to ask your wife, and that’s what I have got a problem doing,” he remarked.
