Chipukeezy leaves Ebru TV over Kartelo deal

Comedian Vincent Muasya popularly known as Chipukeezy has terminated his contract with Ebru TV.

In a statement he posted on his Facebook page, Chipukeezy said he received an email from Ebru TV, asking that he terminates his agreement and collaboration with upcoming comedian Kartelo on his Chipukeezy Show because it has become “a bit Ghetto because of the many youths (upcoming musicians and comedians”.

“They requested that we try and change the format a little bit. Maybe interview more politicians and a few corporate executives. For as much as I respect their request or rather decision, I would like to categorically state that I feel my calling and mission could just be the exact opposite. My passion, desire and vision is to lift the youth of this country”,

Chipukeezy said he is not “willing or planning under any circumstances to stop supporting Kartelo and any other young person in this industry”.

“I am sadly left with no option but to terminate my contract as well. The Chipukeezy Show will, however, continue with Kartelo and many more on a different platform,” he said.

This could, however, be an indication that Chipukeezy Show has found another home, having grown and produced popular acts such as Mulamwah, Kartelo and recently Simple Boy of the popular hit Vijana, tuwache mihadarati.

Muasya, however, thanked teh media station for the opportunity and teh support they offered him.

“I want to say a Big thank you to Ebru TV for the far they supported me and an even BIGGER thank you to supporters of Chipukeezy show. GOD BLESS. (sic)” he said.
