Media personality Chipukeezy has said that his show on Ebru TV will no longer air as his ideas and those of the station are conflicting.
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.
Chipukeezy argued that as much as he respected his employers he has a passion to follow.
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.
Chipukeezy added that he was not in any way willing to let go of Kartelo adding that their show would continue but on a different platform.
I am not willing or planning under any circumstances to stop supporting Kartelo and any other young person in this industry.
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
