Monday, August 26, 2019 - Chipukeezy has terminated his weekly show with Ebru TV citing frustrations from the management.
Trouble started when he started hosting talented Ghetto youths in his show and giving them a platform to showcase their talents.
He added more fire to the fuel after he started co-hosting the show with talented comedian, Kartelo, who is one of the fastest rising comedians in the country.
Kartelo has revealed how he was being frustrated by top management at Ebru TV just because he comes from the Ghetto.
The guards were even instructed not to let him get in the station.
Here’s what he posted on IG after Chipukeezy revealed that he has terminated the contract.
“So, let me give a short story about me and the man on the background, my mentor, brother, best friend and a father figure in the industry... Tulimeet a few months ago na akaniamini, akanipea job pale Chipukeezy show as his co host.
He also did everything to just see me succeed... tukakuwa mabro, na maarif watrue. Alinishika mkono kunionesha njia. Made me a part of his brand. Ikakuwa sasa it’s not all about him, ni about chipu na kartelo. Long story short my life changed when I met director 001. God akuzidishie. Akubariki bro kwa vitu zote umenifanyia.
Listening to all my crazy ideas with patience, supporting everything i did, sijui kama naweza pata words enough bro. Anyway after sasa tumeanza Chipukeezy show, I realized we had a common goal.. Empowering youths, so we chose kupatia the voiceless a chance.. We spent most of our nights on the internet na mtaani tukisaka talents that weren’t given a voice.
Youths need to be given a chance... vile tu nilipewa all we wanted is to see more and more wakijengeka. But kulikuwa na ngori, our station walianza maneno Mara oooh show imeanza kuwa na ughetto, Mara oooh kartelo ata atolewe hiyo show ati wazazi hawashiki lugha yake. Walianza kunivuruga since day one.
Nikaambiwa we shut down all upcomings na gengetone tulete Wasee wako na ‘value’ .. Chipukeezy thanks again ulisimama na Mimi na the rest of the other talented youths na Kimacho Ngumu tukafanya show.. Fristrations zilikuwa mob, ikafika pale adi watchi anaambiwa tukiingia uko tuvurugwe. Every Monday kwa gate akukukosa Vurugu. Our audience were treated badly.. Our guests pia.
Nakumbuka mdosi wangu apo alikuwa anachachisha hadi anatoa veins za kichwa 😂😂For the first time ndio Nilianza kunotice btw vijana joh Tuko underated. Si huonekana kama sijui nini. Content tu zetu tunavurugwa ni za uduu. Mdosi wangu apa wamemvuruga sana ju anakuwa involved na mavijana. Juzi tu walituma email. Bila tu reason wakadai kartelo asiwai onekana Chipukeezy show ama karibu na hio station... Chipukeezy after tumechapiana for the last few days, akadaisha tu Show itabidi imengolewa.. Anyway the show will continue on another platform tuzidishe Rieng. Mayutman tutaconquer.”
