"I  had a very big problem with Ojwang’s wife. She accused me of trying to steal her husband and taking his money] but people had to intervene and explain to her it was acting and there was nothing between us. It took her time to understand and finally she did." Mama Kayai revealed. 

Adding that they really respected each other.

"But I have gone through a lot of problems with Ojwang's family. It really hurt me because I used to tell them there is nothing more to our work relationship. His wife never understood it was just work and that Ojwang never pursued me. We really respected each other."

"You're too old we want youngins. There is a lady at KBC who said that Vitimbi and Vioja Mahakamani are old shows and have no meaning to the current generation. Vitimbi was first canceled then the Vioja crew left voluntarily. "
