Shaffie Weru: I Earned Ksh1.1 Million Salary After Taxes

  • Shaffie Weru was one of the top radio presenters in Kenya
  • He revealed that his salary was Ksh1.1 million in a recent interview

He was arguably one of the best radio presenters in Kenya until his flourishing career came to a screeching halt. 

According to the immensely talented Shaffie Weru, he used to earn a staggering Ksh1.1 million at the peak of his career. 

“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,” he shared on Mic Check Podcast.

Kicked out of Radio

In a separate story carried on WoK, the former HomeBoyz Radio presenter gave his truth why they were fired from their breakfast show. Alongside DJ Joe Mfalme and co-presenter Neville, Shaffie was accused of making insensitive remarks on gender based violence. 

“The reason I was fired you need to understand was never about the tweets or the people, it was about the companies that were spending money on me because I was a very big presenter. Their customers were the ones attacking me, so they also started attacking the companies,” Shaffie told Nairobi News.

The media personality went on to add that the ugly incident happened when he had been back on radio after a long while,

“It actually happened two days after I got back on radio. I had not been on mainstream radio for like a year and a half, since 2020. Now in 2021 when I got back and did the breakfast show with DJ Joe Mfalme and Neville, that’s when I got fired,” said Shaffie.

The Head of Events and Branding in the Governor Johnson Sakaja-led Nairobi County government, said he was badly affected when he learn’t he had been fired via twitter (X).

“It has never happened to me before and it honestly destabilized me because you know we got fired like at midnight on Twitter. I was just chilling when I was told that this is what’s going down. I didn’t see it coming because by the time I had left, I was only suspended and I knew it would die down, but it was bigger than that,” he revealed.
