Pascal Tokodi’s wife tells off ‘womb watchers’ demanding kids from her

It’s been about a year plus since Pascal Tokodi and wife, Grace Ekirapa walked down in a low key wedding; that only saw close friends and family attend.

Word has it that the wedding was so low key that for a minute bloggers and fans thought it was a music video shoot. Smart. However with time, we came to learn that the handsome Pascal Tokodi had found a wife in young Grace Ekirapa; and truth is, these two make a stunning couple.

Well, having been married for almost 30 months; there are a few fans who have been demanding kids from the couple not knowing that their demands have been hurting the couple.

This needs to Stop

This was confirmed by Ekirapa who recently shared a long detailed post telling off womb watchers; who have apparently been accusing her of being infertile among other things.

In a detailed long post, Mrs Tokodi went on to insist that it isn’t okay to pry into people’s business; and advised fans to learn the importance of minding their own business.

From her post, clearly Grace Ekirapa owes nobody an explanation since she isn’t a baby-making machines; but hopefully one day she will be a mum.

Grace Ekirapa’s post

Allow me to say this because it’s been in my heart and it gets heavy by day. When two people get married, they plan and work towards their plans together. Everything flows beautifully and those who want children, work hard towards making them and some even swing from chandeliers while at it. Others decide to pursue their careers first then plan for children later, others decide to adopt children instead of having them biologically, in short, these decisions are made by the people who got married.


I would like to talk about people who desire children and work so hard at it but face challenges. Others get doctors reports that they can never have children, some get pregnant and lose the baby before it gets to term, Some carry the baby to term but lose them during birth, some give birth but lose their lives in the process and never get to be present to raise the baby. What I am saying is, nobody really has control over how life will come to this world or how it will leave. God gives and God takes. It is unfair for an outsider to impose on a married couples life and even raise insults about their life and why they are not bringing children into the world. My heart breaks because there are soo many people out here who are quick to hurt others with their words by raising demands, insults and accusations before knowing what the other person is going through.

The lass went on to conclude saying;

My parents raise me knowing that I should never be mean to somebody just because I have something they don’t have because you know what, It is God who has the power to give and He also has the power to take. Be careful about being mean to people who don’t have what you have because it will be unfortunate if you lost what you have. Remember, it is God who gives Children, Women and men can only try. May Gods peace be with everybody who has been through a painful experience or experiences and May He restore your Joy and turn your mourning into Dancing

For Pascal Tokodi, betting on himself opened up new opportunities

Few conversations are ever as insightful as conversations with people who have mastered their craft and conquered their world. Pascal Tokodi is one such individual and I got the pleasure of sitting down with him and talking alittle about this and alittle about that.

Pascal Tokodi became the talk of the town when afew weeks back, while the country was busy minding its own business a video surfaced on social media that showed a chance encounter between him and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

When this happened, in the few seconds that the encounter lasted for, Pascal asked Uhuru Kenyatta to watch his show, Selina, on Showmax. This was a very brave thing to do but it was also a very divisive statement it would later seem.

You see, a lot of Kenyans were hoping he would raise some issues affecting their lives and chief of these was the lockdown curfew. And what do I mean by this? Alot of guys wanted him to turn into an activist.

Instead, Pascal Tokodi did the smart thing and banked on himself. He excitedly asked the president to watch Selina. And as a result, he says he has experienced a surge of interest in his show from quarters as far out as Kenyans in the diaspora.

I recently got to sit down with him for a chat and we had alot of things to discuss. Chief of which to me was to find out what he thought about the backlash received and how the gambit paid out for him. We discussed other topics including his advice to aspiring actors and even how to discern between good advice and great advice.

Ozy: Afew weeks back, you chanced upon President Uhuru and you decided to promote your show and your craft

Pascal Tokodi (PT): Yeah

Ozy: Did you expect the varied reaction guys had? Some supporting you and others against it?

PT: Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but at that moment, I couldn’t have asked him a lot so I said what I had to say and I took off.

Ozy: How did that unexpected promotion pay off?

PT: I really don’t know the back-end analytics of the full nini but what I saw from social media was guys who did not used to watch Selina took an interest in watching it. I was even getting queries from guys like in Florida asking how they can get to watch the show. It was great seeing guys who hadn’t watched Selina before this take an active interest. For me I did my part in pushing the show.

Ozy: So that means you got a new audience right?

PT: Exactly!

And if you are also keen on finding out why the show has managed to maintain all the curious people who went to watch it after all the furore, well you can catch it on Showmax aswell as a whole series of awesome Kenyan shows that are done to international standards and I guarantee will keep you glued to your screen for just 380 bob. You read that right, three hundred and eighty bob is all it takes.

Soon enough, the conversation veered off into discussing the fact a lot of Kenyans are now willing to bank on their talents and dreams. Here we spoke about the fact that people only see him now that he has made a name for himself but they do not know the struggle he had to endure.

The focus for us was averted to discussing mentors and the advice you receive when it comes to navigating your career.

Ozy: By the time we get to know about celebrities, artists actors and comedians, they are harvesting the fruits of their labour. What advice would you give young talent when it comes to the whole journey, especially those trying their hand at acting?

PT: I would tell them not to be ignorant. How can I put it? Look to those who came before you and learn from their experience. I know this industry and there are a lot of unseen pitfalls and they are steep. I would say, learn from our experiences. Look at what they did wrong and what they did right and create a path from that. You shouldn’t fall into the traps that caught up the ones who came before you.

I feel like a lot of our legends who came before me did us a disservice by making the industry as a whole look bad. And then there are the likes of Nameless and Wahu who have shown that there can be balance without drama. They are raising their family and are still relevant without unnecessary scandals. They are great role models.


The conversation has served up two great gems: the first being that fortune favours the brave and the second being that mentors and having role models is an important aspect of success. Afterall, forewarned is forearmed.

Tokodi and Ekirapa: celebrity dating done right

Pascal Tokodi and his wife Grace Ekirapa are an example of romance done right that should be upheld by all young Kenyans but more importantly, by their celebrity peers who cannot seem to keep their own relationships running longer than an episode of Selina.

While alot of young celebrity couples seem to invariably opt to make their relationship public, these two made a conscious decision to keep theirs private and hidden from the public until they had finally exchanged their vows.

We weren’t allowed to look in on their relationship so we knew nothing about the fights they doubtless had. As a result, they were free to navigate the situation without any untoward pressure.

And when things were going well, they got to relish in those memories. It was just the two of them enjoying those moments, bonding and giving their relationship enough room to take-off.

The couple literally surprised their fanbase by not really mentioning that they are dating, only to surprise us all when it was finally revealed they had gotten married. And you would really have to struggle to find any other celebrity couple that executed things as smoothly as Tokodi and Ekirapa.

And there are a lot of lessons that Kenyan celebrities can learn from them. I would highlight the likes o Bahati and DJ Mo who have made their marriages an open house concept which we get to watch unfold. That is why when DJ Mo cheated, us internet in-laws got involved. Every time Diana Marua says something messed up about her past that would humiliate any other man with a spine, we react.

Contrast this to Pascal Tokodi and Grace Ekirapa. It just doesn’t play out like that. So when Pascal does something that we might not all agree with, such as when he happened to run into the president of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta and he asked him to watch his show Selina, his wife did not get brought up or mentioned. The accolades and anger were exclusively focussed on him. The same cannot be said if it were Kabi wa Jesus in his shoes.

We really can’t argue that the best approach to modern relationships is to keep things private until they are permanent. At that point, you’re already home-free.
