“You know I have been called a nigger before. It’s the worst feeling ever since he is your boss and you can’t answer back because you still need the job. I stayed because I still needed the job although it was the worst feeling. I don’t know whether he is still there,” Maina said. 

Apparently his co-host and funnyman Mwalimu King’ang’I has had to undergo  the painful though not racist moments  while working in industrial area after being insulted by his then boss forcing him to quit.

“There is a time I was working in Industrial Area when the boss asked me,’unafikiria hapa iko mama yako (do you think your mother is here)? And all I could think of was my sick mother. I did not have money and I had not even taken breakfast. I could not stand it, so I just left,” narrated the comedian.
