Notably, during 2006 and 2007, Shaffie Weru hosted the morning show on Kiss FM, positioning himself among the highest-paid radio presenters in Kenya at that time.

“Before tax, I was earning about Sh 1 million. That is around 2006 – 2007. There was money. Though money by that time was for partying,” shared Shaffie.

In a previous interview, Shaffie hinted at his substantial income as he stated:

“I’m among the top 15 highest paid media personalities. I get a lot of money. It’s jackpot money! I can give you a ballpark figure – I do not earn as much as the President, but I get more than MPs.”

Shaffie, along with his co-hosts Joseph Munoru (DJ Joe Mfalme) and Neville Musya, faced termination in 2022 over allegations of demeaning a woman who reportedly faced a tragic incident after rejecting sexual advances on Facebook.
