part from being an entertainer that everyone knows, I’m a father, son, niece and all those sections of my life have to balance.”
NACADA Vice-Chair Chipukeezy has refuted claims that he and Kartelo are beefing.
The two were tight and even had projects together before everything went cold. Many assumed there is bad blood between them, something the NACADA boss has refuted.
Speaking during an interview with Bonga na Jalas he said
‘’Let’s stop being petty art is not group work.
He is a grown man who has parents and a family so we only come together when he has something to be seen.
He is trying to put together content for his radio show.
As an artist you don’t have to hang out with people just because they are there.
He knows himself and we don’t have to hang out all the time.’’
‘’He needs time to hang out with other people. He is a king and has his own Kingdom.
I and he are done since the day I gave him an interview, being an artist is not a glamorous job.
There are days you will be broke and clueless so take your time and figure out what you want.’’ He concluded
Kartelo recently made a comeback after a long hiatus.
It was alleged he has been doing drugs, something he has strongly refuted.
Speaking to Mulamwah who visited him at his home in Kayole, Kartelo said, “I’m around. There is nothing amiss.”
Adding, “Apart from being an entertainer that everyone knows, I’m a father, son, niece and all those sections of my life have to balance.”
Kartelo continued, “My mum wanted me to help her with her business in the rearing of chicken.”
Kartelo was known for his unique brand of comedy that used complicated sheng words. However, the last time he posted any content on his social media was in February 6, 2021.
Asked if he has been missing in action due to addiction and drugs.
Kartelo said, “There is no addiction. I’m okay.”
Adding, “You can put a pay bill number of you have missed seeing me. I cannot refuse. It will make me happy.”
Advising his fans, Kartelo noted, “Be happy, be street smart. Appreciate God for what you have and progress comes slowly.”
