Radio Jambo presenter Masawe Japani is married to a top CEO, and one of the most powerful men in the Radio industry, Radio Maisha boss, Tom Japani. However, like many other married women, she dated other men before landing her husband. However, unlike other women, she did something that will no doubt be considered mean, if not downright cruel. There’s the boy code, then there’s the girl code, and there’s the general code which no one, regardless of gender, should break.
This week, on Thursday, Masawe Japani was in her usual bubbly mood, and kept playing back to back old-skuls on a wonderful throwback Thursday. She had just finished interviewing socialite Shakila, and was in high spirits, and full of stories.
Suddenly, however, something happened on air which got her talking about some guy who had funny mannerisms, and how it reminded her of some weird guy she once dated. She went on to laugh at the poor guy uncomfortably, and didn’t stop their. She even went on to mention the fellow’s name. Tim.
Luckily, the small incident ended up being a cropper, and the hordes of fans that follow her on air and online didn’t pick it up, and turn it in to an opportunity to troll her as has happened in the past before.
Back in 2019 when then Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore had just died, quite a number of celebrities such as Eric Omondi and Jeff Koinange posted the conversations they had had with the departed CEO online. This didn’t go down well with Masawe who felt that this was not only cold, but also insensitive and desperate. She posted, saying as much, and this opened the floodgates of trolls. Many people online attacked her for her post, some feeling she was dissing Eric, while some felt it was a case of sour grapes, and she was annoyed simply because she had no memories to share.
