Comedian Chipukeezy says he won’t be derailed by aborted engagement to fiancée Vivian Mandera, popularly known in social media circles as Empress Kerry.
Chipukeezy, 27, and Ms Mandera, 25, got engaged on January 6, 2016 in an event attended by close friends and family.
“On January 6, 2016, I proposed to my kababy at my Buruburu home in Phase 5. Close friends and few of my fiancée’s relations witnessed the ceremony. She was turning 23, and I wanted to make her big day memorable. Mimi ni ule msee mnoma!” the comedian posted on social media at the time.
“I have decided to settle down. In life, one has just to do the right thing in order to get everything right; I want to do what every other successful man does. I don’t want to wait in order to marry. There’s no more time. If not today, then it must be today,” he confidently said.
And two years later, the comedian says the aborted engagement is “in the past” and his focus “primarily remains on my job now”.
“I do not want to talk about my failed relationship. If you need a detailed explanation, I would use the analogy of the Canaan caravan and crocodile in the Red Sea – as used by Raila Odinga. I met crocodiles when I was about to cross over to Canaan. Moving forward, you will hear very little about me and my personal life. And again, on my failed relationship, it is a non-issue,” Chipukeezy told EDAILY on phone Tuesday.
Cracks in Chipukeezy and Ms Mandera’s relationship began to show in October, 2017, when the frequency at which Ms Mandera used to post Chipukeezy’s pictures on her social media pages reduced.
Ms Mandera recently deleted all the comedian’s pictures from her social media accounts, leaving online users speculating that their 3-year love journey had come to a crashing halt.
Chipukeezy, whose real name is Vincent Muasya, came out to confirm his break up from Ms Mandera, who served as his manager.
“It’s true Vivian and I have gone separate ways. What we had planned to pursue together was not in harmony. We, therefore, decided to amicably terminate the relationship. People, as expected, would speculate, but I wish Vivian nothing but the best! She is free to hook up with a new man, who will love her genuinely,” said Chipukeezy.
