Friday, July 12, 2019- Capital FM listeners were treated to free drama on Friday morning when hosts of the morning show, Fareed Khimani and Amina Abdi, lashed at each other, leading to Fareed storming out mid-show.
While at first it appeared like one of those stupid stunts radio presenters pull to get people talking and revive their dwindling ratings, we can confirm that it wasn’t scripted.
It all started when Fareed, who has struggled to establish on air chemistry with Amina, since he was hired to replaced Maqbul Mohamed, noticed Amina had been sulking and asked her what was bothering her.
Amina was pissed after realizing that Fareed’s salary is significantly higher than what she’s paid.
Things went south pretty fast with Fareed threatening to leave the station stating that it was not a must he works with Amina.
Amina dared him to leave saying, ‘nobody would die simply because you left.’
Fareed seemed to have had enough and stormed out.
Check out reaction on social media.

I don’t think it’s about experience at all. When you getting an offer at a job one has the right to negotiate. @FareedKhimani did negotiate for himself and Amina decided to take what she was offered. I see nothing wrong with Fareed getting paid more than her.— Adel Mnene|Queen of Potato👑 (@adel_mnene) July 12, 2019
I am not surprised about that Fareed Kimani and Amina story. I wondered what idiot paired the two. Zero chemistry and they are two different people from 2 different worlds with different tastes in music. Fareed thrives while working alone, remember The Rude Awakening?— Myke (@Myke_Mwendwa) July 12, 2019
Pay gap basically. Apparently Fareed left his payslip on Amina's desk and she opened thinking it's hers. Then she saw he's being paid more for the same job.— jun (@JuneWangari) July 12, 2019
So I was even wondering why she was upset with him and not the employer
Take Amina and Fareed for example... si she signed the contract akiwa peke yake? aliona aka kubali... if Fareed negotiated for a better deal who's fault is it? I mean the employer is just trying to save some bucks ...— Multipotentialite 🇰🇪 (@Createagist) July 12, 2019
