Tina Kaggia and JB Masanduku Separation
Tinna Kagai divorced JB Masanduku on allegation of being neglected. During an interview with a local newspaper, she revealed that her three-year marriage to JB Masanduku was rocky and at some time it made her feel suicidal.
She claimed that the marriage failed to work because JB Masanduku neglected her, manipulated and lied every day. She narrated how the mess in her marriage and, the anger she had been bottling up, made her crumble inside to the point she started drinking heavily.
Her father had tried to intervene and help during the hard times, praying, convincing the couple to go through counseling and even sending JN’s friends to talk to him.
Eventually, when the mental strain became unbearable, she took a break from radio and became inaccessible, with the only family being able to see her.
” He was never there, he would miss important dates and his vanishing acts – where he would disappear for days – became commonplace. My son loved that guy. Whenever he walked into the room, the rest of its occupants ceased to exist and he only went for ‘Daddy Cool’…. He’s a charmer, that’s why I’d always fall for his apologies. He always called my bluff every time I told him that I would move out. By this time the stress was too much and I had even gone through treatment for depression. We took a retreat to Mombasa to sort things out but he went back into his old habits as soon as we returned.”
” I disappeared for four months because I needed medical attention for depression; I was suicidal at this point. I had to go through physical de-cluttering since almost everything I had brought back memories of our time together; I gave out most of my clothes and had to pick out new ones from my sister. I hope he’s well and I have forgiven him. There was a time I would not even mention his name but recently I even managed to sit through an episode of Comedy Club where he featured that was being repeated on TV… I could not have done that several months ago.”
Masanduku has made news with his requests to see their children, but Tina insists that Masanduku does not support them in any way challenging Masanduku to provide proof of financial support.
Masanduku is however reported to have moved on and is now dating Jackie Karanja
She is a mother of three.

Tina Kaggia: Handbags! I do not know how men do it. There are so many things to carry every day — phones, wallets, perfume, Ipods, magazines and even food.
Interviewer: What do you love most about your job?
Tina Kaggia: I have been working in radio since 2010 and it is amazing. I get paid to play music and talk. In fact, it is more of a hobby that pays well than a job. Plus, radio is what brought my husband and me together.
Interviewer: Do you do anything else apart from being a radio presenter?
Tina Kaggia: For now I am more or less a full-time mummy. I love to keep my home in order. Plus, I help my husband Nathan (JB Masanduku) with his business. We also have an entertainment production company called 1357, which we run together with Nathan’s friend Wati.
Interviewer: Speaking of JB, what attracted you to your hubby?
Tina Kaggia: He has the biggest and warmest heart in the world. He is also a Jesus’ boy and loves like a child — he does not hold back. I cannot imagine my life with anyone else. I love the fact that he is a bit nut. He proposed eleven days after our first date and then ended up proposing another three times. I think the only time I said “yes” was two days before our wedding.
Interviewer: What is the most memorable thing about your recent wedding?
Tina Kaggia: Everything was amazing, but I can never forget is when Nathan slipped the ring onto my finger; my heart stopped! He had this look in his eyes; I cannot describe it but I saw right into his heart.
Interviewer: Why did you choose the AG’s office instead of the usual commercial weddings?
Tina Kaggia: (Laughs) commercial is overrated. We wanted something private, small and intimate. However, Nathan and our daughter are still pushing for a white ceremony, so I guess we will have one soon.
Interviewer: What do you love most about being a wife?
Tina Kaggia: The fact that I go home every day to my best friend. Every girl needs that.
Interviewer: You are also a mum; tell us something about your little princess?
Tina Kaggia: She is called Imani and even though she is only seven years, she has the wisdom of a grey-haired woman.
Interviewer: What do you love to do with your daughter?
Tina Kaggia: We shop a lot and cook noodles together. And she is big on music just like her musician uncle DNA. She is teaching me to play the violin and the recorder.
Interviewer: You have a trim enviable figure, what’s your secret?
Tina Kaggia: The roller was my best friend and I managed to get back in shape about 12 weeks after delivery.
Interviewer: How do you balance career and being a mum and a wife?
Tina Kaggia: Family always comes first. I wake up at 5:50 am to make breakfast for Imani as I do not believe the house help should do that. Then I pack her bag and we walk her to the school bus. After that, I chill with Nathan until it is time for us to head out. I do lunch with him as often as possible.
Interviewer: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would that be and why?
Tina Kaggia: I am very short-tempered and it isn’t nice at all.
Interviewer: Do you have any advice for single girls out there on how to get their Mr Right?
Tina Kaggia: You attract your kind. So, conduct yourself in a manner that will make that man want to wife you and not just to take a peep at your knickers. You should meet his family before you see the ceiling of his bedroom.
Interviewer: Do you have a secret talent?
Tina Kaggia: I remember conversations in verbatim. I am like the audio version of Mike Ross from the television series Suits.
