Kenyan media personality Shaffie Weru has shocked fans after disclosing the amount of money he used to pocket back in the days when working as a radio presenter.

Speaking in an interview with Mic Cheque podcast, Shaffie Weru revealed that he used to earn Ksh 1 million per month.

"Just before tax, I made about Ksh1.1 million, and that was back in the day, naongea 2006. Pesa ilikua. Money back in the day ilikua partying, buying big cars, and then nilipata watoi mapema. And you know my first born is in uni, just calculate, 18 years ago, so nilikua nalipa school fees pia."

Shaffie Weru seemingly was among the highest-paid radio presenters in Kenya in 2006 and 2007, when he was hosting the morning show on Kiss FM.

Shaffie Weru was dismissed from HomeBoyz radio in 2021 following his on-air remarks where he advised women to exercise caution during their initial encounters with unfamiliar men.

His remarks came in the aftermath of a disturbing incident where a woman suffered a sexual assault and was thrown off a building during a first date.

Weru's advice, urging women to play hard to get and avoid risky situations, drew criticism from some who perceived it as disrespectful and promoting gender-based violence.

Shaffie was fired along with former colleagues Neville and DJ Joe Mfalme
