Media is envied by many thanks to the glamour and colour that comes with it. Its an art that not only needs profession but also talent. In Kenya, people listen to radio more than they watch TV or get news from other sources. Among top radio stations are Classic 105, KISS 100, Radio Maisha, Radio Jambo among others.
What you do not know however is that, radio presenters are rich and some are paid higher than your yearly income. No offense. Talk of Maina Kageni who was once the highest paid radio presenter earning more than what MP’s used to earn some time back.
This was even tabled as a motion in the parliament. Well, here they are:
1. Maina Kageni, Classic 105 – Ksh 1.8 Million
Maina Kageni is with no doubt a celebrated radio presenter. All Kenyans living in Nairobi wake up to his morning breakfast show on Classic 105 with King’ang’i. Initially his salary was 1 Million but was bumped up when K24 tried to poach him.
