Meria Mata

Elder Statesman
You know him by his tickling voice during radio stations’ calls-in shows or you may have seen or interacted with him. He is popularly called Wanjohi Wa Kigogo-ini and in weeks’ time he will tie the knot.

Titus Wanjohi, farm worker at Kigogo-ini village, Tetu who is a popular caller in Gikuyu radio stations has for years appealed for a lover. His prayers have been answered after a lady from Kangema, Murang’a County accepted his hand in marriage. He calls her “Babe Top”.

Wakigogo-ini wedding will be on December 29 and it is expected either Kameme FM or Inooro FM will finance it and guests will include media personalities and politicians.
His penchant for calling into radio stations started in 2010 when he did it for fun became a daily, serious affair. He spends about Sh100 daily on airtime. He is known to send greetings to dozens of fans in a single call, make comical contributions to topics of the day and sometimes misunderstands the debate.
To some, the 28-year-old is a nag but most of these stations’ fans like him. His girlish voice amuses.
His journey of looking for a suitor started a while back. At one time he asked Kameme FM host Evangelist Lucy wa Ngunjiri to get him wife but the latter live on radio decided to counsel him to first focus building his life. Now he believes he is ready to settle down.
The PCEA faithful says he has dated his lover for long and it took alluring words to win her. “She is a beautiful. I provoked her with SMs like ‘goodnight’ then next calling her babe and later telling her ‘I love you’. I want to wed her in sacred occasion” says Wakigogo-ini.
We all know that he stole that name from the inimitable original Wanjohi, he who taught us words like 'muclimbano', 'makobosto', 'tiita', 'thuruari-on-head', etc.

but on serious note where did the original wanjohi wa kigogoine go?? is he on ktalk? coz i remember he was very active on kenyanlist but since its demise i have no idea where he hid himself.
