Chipukeezy Issues Apology To Christine Wawira After Cracks In His Story Emerge

He had to address it at some point, given the manner in which his dramatic tale about his meeting with Kevin Hart unfolded.

Chipukeezy has taken to Instagram in the hopes of saving his brand after it emerged that a Kenyan actress living and working in the States was the plug who helped him meet his idol, Kevin Hart.

The story blew up yesterday.

Chipukeezy’s response to all the drama came following a lot of public derision at the fact that he didn’t give another Kenyan a chance to shine; instead choosing to fake an imaginary white woman as the reason for his good fortune.

He wrote:

Hi Wawira, I appreciated you for holding my hand when I needed it. I am sorry I did my interview in a way that didn’t acknowledge you or give you credit.
For a person who relied on other established artists to climb the ladder, I at least owed you a mention. For that, I am sorry forgive me.
To my fans and everyone who has my back, I am sorry for letting you down. I have learned a valuable lesson and will strive to do better always.

As a young guy trying to come up in the entertainment industry, I have made mistakes and the most recent one is the one I failed to give credit to the lady Christine Wawira after she helped meet with Hart . I really regret that and sincerely apologize again. One thing that I don't regret though is the lessons I have learned, that Kenyans will fight for their own no matter the class, no matter the tribe or political backgrounds. That Kenyans stands and protects their own. And this is the reason they cheer their athletes as Kenyans, the one thing that makes us forget our differences. This lesson is one thing I know I will come out with from this and I really appreciate you all because without you I won't have learned it. This gives me hope knowing that even in our current difficulty political season Kenya will emerge as one, because we fight for and defend each other…..

“Supporting our own” is a phrase that many artists (rightfully) call out to the public for. If we don’t tell our story, who will? In this case, Chipukeezy will need to earn that right to demand that from us again
