Kenyan comedian Njugush has opened up on how rejection by his wife’s girlfriend gave him a chance to date his now-wife Celestine Ndinda.
Clestine alias Wakavinye at the time looked like a high class chick and Njugush felt like he could not win her love.
‘I DECIDED HAPO SIEZI JARIBU SHE LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS OUT OF MY LEAGUE BUT SHE HAD A FRIEND WHO WAS MIDDLE CLASS.
SO I DECIDED TO TRY MY LUCK WITH HER FRIEND. CELESTINE’S FRIEND WAS NOT INTERESTED IN ME.
WE WOULD GO TO CHURCH BUT NOTHING MUCH CAME OUT OF IT.
CELESTINE WOULD LAUGH SO MUCH ABOUT IT.’
‘ONE DAY WE JUST FOUND MYSELF WITH CELESTINE AND I FOUND HER COMPANY INTERESTING AS THEY SAY THE REST IS HISTORY.
I ONLY APPROACHED HER AFTER I LEARNT SHE WAS FROM GITHURAI.’
Well Njugush’ efforts paid off as the couple got married and have a son,Tugi.
Although many see them as a power couple, his wife Celestine said they have had their ups and downs.
‘WE HAVE NEVER BROKEN UP BUT WE MANY TIMES GET TIRED OF EACH OTHER AND WISH TO TAKE A BREAK.
WE KOSANA A LOT BUT I HAVE NEVER LEFT OUR MARRIAGE BECAUSE I REALIZE THE BREAK IS NOT HELPING AT ALL. WE HAVE ARGUMENTS A LOT, EVEN IN MARRIAGE.’
Well, like they say what is meant to be yours will always come back to you and Celestine did come back to Njugush.
