Chipukeezy’s damning revelation about Ebru TV has awakened the wrath of Kenyans and more specifically the youth. Chipukeezy revealed that Ebru wanted him to terminate Kartello’s involvement in his show for being too Ghetto and instead focus on taking a Political angle to his interviews.
The marginalization of the ghetto youth who Kartello proudly signifies didn’t sit well with Chipukeezy either so he resigned from the station as well. It could be interpreted as a move to stifle the growth of Youth who are already suffering from widespread unemployment in the country.
Chipukeezy, however, guaranteed his fans that the widely popular show will air on a different platform.

Hey Guys… A quick one. So I received an email from Ebru TV asking me to terminate my agreement and Collaboration with Kartelo on my show. They say they are a bit concerned that the show has become a bit Ghetto because of the many Youths (Upcoming Musicians and Comedians) on the show. They requested that we try and change the format a little bit. Maybe interview more politicians and afew 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. I feel like God has offered me an opportunity to create a platform for these Young people who are mostly from the slams and majorly disadvantaged. Our politicians are good, they are more than good. Our Executives are actually living their dreams. On the other hand I feel like most talented youths are without hope and opportunity and unless someone holds their hands their Future is mostly uncertain. I am not willing or planning under any circumstances to stop supporting Kartelo and any other young person in this industry and since Ebru seems to have made up their minds on Terminating Kartelo appearance on my show 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. 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🙏
Kenyans have taken to social media to air their frustrations and attack the media station. Many are saying that Ebru TV will go down after this betrayal as they intend to boycott watching it. Check out the reactions below:
And as the kenyan youth we shall boycott ebru tv by all means.
this hurts …..too bad they didnt realize people like us who watched the show becoz of kartelo
Wachira Jackson I only watch Ebru coz of your show. Why lie?
Njuguna Gitau Chipukeezy show is bigger than the entire ebru TV itself ……let them swallow their pride,tumia sisi links tupatane YouTube.
Edin Sichangi It’s very unfortunate,but God is preparing something bigger 🙏….. trust and pray! I honestly came to know existence of ebru tv through chipikeezy show. I think ebru tv has lost
Ng’etich Carzola Vinny I always watch Ebru because of the young talents with no platform to showcase their talents whom you always give them and the support they need ,may God bless you Chipu and open doors for more blessings
Mc King Dto I started watching ebru tv coz of you chipukeezy And I loved the way you are supporting Young Youths and Generation you are blessed and more blessings to be with you forever……for now since you have decided to play a good role like Jesus…Pia mm am Disqualify my contract of watching Ebru tv….Ingia Switch Tv
Sele Nyams Ebru itself was known through you. And its because of you that we watch it. A big thank you man for supporting youths. God bless you.
Mutua Chris tell them Rip ebru. I personally will never watch that station in my life unless they apologize to Kenyans. Mwanaaa mwaitu Ekana ndumbia isu. There is always another way forward and I believe this time now will be bigger than ever
Peter Kogi That’s a great decision, am sure i would have done the same because its hard to do something that you are NOT PASSIONATE about. Hata ukienda Inoro Tv ama whatever TV tutakufuata huko. Politicians, executives and those living their dreams have enough platforms to share and contribute to the society. What about our youths with talents na hawana platform. Twende twendete…by Ebru Tv
Gitau Wa Joel That point that politicians are good, they are more than good and executive living their good touched soo much and that is 100% true. All the best director. Let’s see where ebru will get those youtube views
Vin Cent Nice brother. I have known you from the times we did events in MKU (2016/17) when i was serving as a student leader. Having worked with you, I really know your passion to grow upcoming talents.. Let nothing stop you from that. These people on ebru should know that this is the only thing i watch on ebru. Na najua tuko wengi. Sasa hio TV yao pia wafunge..
Saitoti Em Sonkoyo That’s what is called SELFLESSNESS, God will open More avenues for you to support the disadvantage youths. Ebru have lost it already
Ondari Bonmax Your show is what made me know theirs a TV Station in Kenya by the name Ebru. After your exit then their viewership I’m sure will reduce from the 2% they enjoy now to 0.005
The show has helped so many people including me . Thanks for the platform sana . We hope for the best in future 💯 . Bro @kartelo_official we are destined for greatness let’s push on even harder 💯💪💪 konki
Kwani kartelo akona mafi, waende na uko,kwani ulikuwa bure uko,ata iyo station ni show yako ilikuwa inafanya watu waifungulie,so many TV stations, God will lead u, Devil always fight’s when good things starts happening.waende wakikauka .
The hardest way is the way thru… don’t let the drmz of those youngsters perish in the name of discrimination
