Churchill Raw’s MC Jesse has come out to clarify rumors that he is getting a divorce in order to be with actress Shix Kapienga who is also a presenter with Hot96 FM.
Jesse said that he was disturbed by people who have been labeling Shix as a home wrecker and that they needed to hear the story behind their relationship.
The “reports” doing rounds have painted Jesse as a vile man who wrecked his marriage my committing adultery with Shix.
The speculation by many was that he was in the process of getting a divorce from his wife Nkirote whom he wed in 2010 so as to be with her.
“We married while the relationship was on the rock. So we sat down and decided to take a break and try to figure things out back in 2012,” he told The Star’s Word. “We are still friends and continue to raise the most beautiful gift I ever received in my life together. That is only possible because we are friends. And because I keep a small circle, only our immediate families know.”
He added, “I met Shix through my work at Hot 96 and Churchill Raw. We started off as friends, just going for the same events and gigs due to work but we started dating later. I pursued her because I felt “si nitafute mtu?” I need to move on because I have been living my life as a separated man. I didn’t leave Nkirote to be with Shix. No! I focused on my business and making Kenyans laugh after getting separated but the heart wants what the heart wants. She’s not a home wrecker as I have seen people alleging. She’s a kind, loving person.”
MC Jesse said that he decided to share his side of the story because the rumors have been hurting the people he holds dear.
“It’s unfortunate that someone who loves my son and whom my son loves is being dragged through the mud because some blogger wanted hits,” he said. “How can I stress the fact that Nkirote and I are still friends?”
Jesee said that he and his wife still talk and raise their son together.
“We have been at peace because there was no malice in my actions. I remember praying to God first to get guidance from God so I would know how to best move forward,” he said. “That is also why I am sharing my story because I can see how it is hurting the people I hold dear to me more than my own life itself.”
Shix Kapienga shot into the limelight with her roles in Shuga episode 2. She was also featured in the Kenyan movie on Nairobi Half-life and is currently a cast member in Papa Shirandula.
