The lost cause…

A lot has been written about Soraiya Shah on Media Madness, from her escapades in Sagana, to her lie telling ways when she was in SA, about her back stabbing ways, picking on workmates,  to throwing tantrums in boardrooms and most recently,  showing how arrogant she is when she claimed Maina Kageni was not POPULAR and her show was better. In case you have no idea who Soraiya is, she goes by another name Rae.


In fact I’d decided to give her a black out…BUUUUT! On Friday a rumor started doing the rounds that she was replacing Fareed on Studio 53 YES! Studio 53…I wanted to go live with the story but I decided to first investigate (Cause that’s what good journalists do,  take notes). Turns out,  Rae has over the last few days been saying she is replacing Fareed!!! Shock horror! I must give the 24 year old props for OVER ambition, she’s been on air for a minute!And now she thinks Africa is ready for her (Standard street hasn’t warmed up to her yet!) But not to rain on her parade (YET) I emailed MNET’s Wangechi Murage to find out if there was any truth in what Rae was saying.

In her first reply she wasn’t sure who Rae was or what I was talking about. After a ‘little’ explaining she did say ‘Fareed has not left and I WOULD KNOW’

Now some advice to Rae, sweety the asylum needs you!


UPDATE!!! Just got a reply from Fareed on the matter, he tells me he first heard the rumors when he was in Dar (on sato) where he was shooting stories on Naomi Campbell and Angelique Kidjo.

He says quitting MNET is all news to him cause he’s already making plans to fly down to SA for Studio 53’s 300th episode party in Dec. He says he doesn’t blame anyone for wanting the best gig in the WORLD!!

    Something’s seriously going wrong at Capital. The “newer, bolder and provocative Capital” falls pitiably below the standards set by the older Capital that we knew hardly 3 months ago. What happened? Did they kick out all their talent and replace them with new people?

  19. Posted by Ciku on November 19, 2009 at 3:09 pm

  20. Posted by Naughtiness on November 19, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    I hear she made some producer quit! At only 24 and being such a bitch – is she single? Cause am sure a man will solve her problems quick fast! And she’s kinda manly when you really look at the poc long enough!!

    @Godfrey capital has isssssueeees!! Where’s Linda Holt?? Does she read this nonsense am sure she’d sort out this idiot


  23. Hahahahaha….ain tryin to Defend Rae or anything but the woman is trynna hunt for some relevance,Radio is the most popular n accessible form of media n if you gonna be workin @ Capital n no one recognizes you,it’s best you stir up some childlike controvercies…so we really really need to go over of Gaetano quitin,I can’t wait to see that happen,he suck balls big time…I wonder why C.K would bring us rejects from Uganda…I mean Ugandan media is far to way behind us not coz of Language or funny luganda accents but overally..have y’al eva listened to those white presenters @ Uganda’s Capital? Disaster!!!!…any way Seanice/Fareed’s chemistry will be miss’d foreva on that breakfast show….maybe Eve n Solo shud do it…lol.

  24. Ugandan Media pays alot more than Kenyan though…..I appreciate that.

    Just have an analytical look at the picture n U realise we have another SEMENYA issue with us!.

  27. Posted by jamo on November 21, 2009 at 7:52 am

    eh, you guys are harsh…leave this poor woman alone…if you think about it its Cyrus kamau who makes the decisions about who goes on air and who doesnt…and if he gave any one of us a chance to do Breakfast…we would take it…the other side of the coin is, who is there to train at Capital FM…FK left, so who….??

    ya hearD!!

  28. Posted by jamo on November 21, 2009 at 8:26 am

    btw, if you try and post anything negative on any of the CFM Website blog pages, or where it says to leave a comment…they dont get posted…check it

    ya hearD!!

    MM, I read your blog often, but you seem to have beef with Rae more than anyone else.
    If you would believe me, I can tell you that she and Gae are ok working together. Jamo is more right – FK left so training is left to who? And yeah, Cyrus makes the decisions who goes on air. Maybe MM should give a try at the jobs they keep bashing?
