Former Citizen Television Tahidi High actor, Abel Mutua, better known Freddie has tied the knot with the love of his life, Judy Nyawira, Friday morning in Nairobi.
Abel has dated Nyawira, the Production Assistant of set at Mediae Company, for years before finally settling on today’s date (November, 20) to say, “I do.”
The invite-only ceremony was attended by few family members and friends.
Notable figures who graced the event are Philip Karanja, better known Melvin in Tahidi High; Jacqueline Matubia, known by her moniker Jolene; Docta Eddie and Faith Nyaga of Mother-in-Law, among others.
Abel wore a black blazer paired with white pants; a dress code which was also donned by his best man and colleague, Philip Karanja.
The bride, Ms Nyawira, on the other hand wore a lovely strapless mermaid gown.
In a December 2014 social media post, Abel hinted he will wed in 2015. His revelation has finally materialised.
In the correspondence which had his mum as the recipient, he wrote: “Supuu wa Karatina namtembeza down the aisle pretty soon (I will soon walk my beautiful woman from Karatina down the aisle). I have already picked out my wedding attire.”
Abel has worked on other productions after he left Tahidi High. He recently won an award at the Kalasha International Film Awards through the Hapa Kule comedy show.
He also recently received a special mention as the director of a local TV comedy, Househelps of Kawangware, from Oscar award winner Lupita Nyong’o.
Judy Nyawira, also a producer, works on Makutano Junction and Know Zone, which are both filmed on the Mediae set.
She also works on location with Citizen Television’s Shamba Shape Up. In her spare time Judy spends time with her family and friends in Nairobi.
Congratulations to Abel and Judy.
