A few hours ago Chipukeezy shared an alarming post claiming that Ebru TV was no longer going to air his ‘Chipukeezy show.’
Apparently Ebru TV sent him an email asking him to terminate his contract with Kartelo since the show had become too ghetto for their viewers. He however says he couldn’t let the fella go and for this reason decided to pull out of his agreement with the TV station as he hopes to find one that will accommodate his team.

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🙏
Ebru TV denies firing Kartelo for being ‘ghetto’
We at Ghafla reached out to Ebru TV who opened up about the situation. It turns out that Kartelo had apparently been given a project to work on but failed to deliver.
According to our close source, Kartelo had already been paid in full but failed and to deliver which forced the station to terminate any appearances of Kartelo on Ebru TV. Our source went on to reveal saying;
Two Day ago Ebru Tv had an disagreement with Kartelo on a project because he had been paid to push and promote an Online Advertisement which he failed to deliver according to our expectations. But as per on Thursday 22/8/2019 he had not posted any of the adverts on his platforms. Based on this the corporation felt that this is negligence of duty and contract not adhered. We have not fully delivered to the client and given value of their money. So hence forth the management terminates any appearances of Kartelo on Ebru TV.
Did Chipukeezy lie about the the contents in the email he was sent by Ebru TV?
From the documents that we have it has been stated no where that Kartelo has been removed because of his Ghetto Character. And because of this Chipukeezy terminated his contract, Is it because he knows he can’t get viewership anymore so he’s looking for “Pity views”? And from The post that Chipukeezy made on his Instagram I believe that’s self interest because Ebru Tv has been known for supporting local talent before even the ChipukeezyShow started.
Well there you have it!
