Kageni caught his co-host Mwalimu King’ang’i by surprise after he joked about Kageni’s career coming to an end in the event he lost his voice.

Classic 105 presenter Maina Kageni revealed that he had insured his voice for Ksh100 million during his breakfast show on Friday, June 11.

Kageni caught his co-host Mwalimu King’ang’i by surprise after he joked about Kageni’s career coming to an end in the event he lost his voice.

As a way of preparing for the worst case scenario, however, Kageni told the comedian that he had already insured his voice.

“You haven’t insured yours? Mine is insured for Ksh100 million,” Kageni said while laughing at King’ang’is jokes on the show.

The radio personality has been on the air for over two decades and his voice has been one of his biggest attributes to his longevity in the media industry.

His voice is very distinctive and most up and coming personalities have tried coping with Maina’s style and voice of engaging with the public- and failed.

Maina and King’ang’i is one of the country’s biggest breakfast shows and it touches on various aspects of life, especially relationships.

The media personality, whom many have come to love and admire, has on previous interviews disclosed that he landed his first radio job by luck.

In 1996, he had returned to Kenya from the UK when he approached Capital FM looking to advertise a product. On reaching the station, he was asked for Ksh40,000 for the voice over and since he did not have the money, he said he would do it. 

The bosses at Capital FM loved his voice and that ignited his radio career. A few months into working at Capital, he was recruited by Nation and later by Radio Africa where his salary witnessed a rise by three times.

Two weeks ago Kageni addressed rumours that he might be eyeing a political seat. He, however, announced that he has absolutely no interest in joining politics, adding that one needs to be a political party subject to survive in the Kenyan political scene.

He further noted that unless you are an independent candidate, when you venture into politics, your ability to think independently is taken away, since you conform to your party’s ideology.

Maina also held the view that politics is an expensive affair, adding that it is one of the “fastest ways to go broke”.

“Politics is the fastest way to grow broke. The fact in Kenya is, you need to be on a big party ticket; which limits your thinking because your thinking must follow that of whoever is the party leader. You can never be Jalang’o the thinker in a big party,” he revealed during the Bonga na Jalas show.
