Phil Karanja disputes taking back Kate Actress’ BMW because of a purported new partner

Phil has categorically denied reclaiming the vehicle, asserting that both parties agreed to its sale.

In his Instagram stories, Phil addressed the rumors, stating, “Najua Udaku Hukuwa Tamu, however, wacheni fake stories,” and adding, “I acknowledge that the blogs are to be sold, and you have had your fun. I wish to officially document that the vehicle was sold with mutual consent, and there are no disputes with Kate, contrary to any portrayal suggesting otherwise,” he concluded. Phil ensured to tag Kate in the post, indicating it is a joint statement.

Kate Actress reposted the statement and shared her perspective on the matter, stating, “Kindly redirect that energy to watching the new season of Becoming CEO. We ain’t about that life, poleni, and thank you.”

There were widespread allegations that the BMW, initially gifted to Kate by Phil, was repossessed by him, following a viral story by a local news outlet. The article suggested that the BMW X3 was reclaimed, with Phil expressing regrets about buying a car that proved to be excessively expensive to maintain.

“I love cars a lot, and so I was young and foolish, and I spent so much on my car, and it has been a very expensive journey to maintain. I am like, that is a car I would have used wisely somewhere. I sold it. I have decided to go back to Uber.”

The Sh3.5 million car was given as a push gift for the arrival of their daughter Njeri.

Kate Actress reacts to Phil Karanja’s choice to sell her BMW X3 push present

Film director Philip Karanja and his wife, Catherine Kamau, popularly known as Kate Actress, recently clarified the reasons behind selling his black BMW X3, a vehicle he had initially gifted her as a push gift.

In a recent interview with Nairobi News, Karanja revealed that he made the decision to sell the luxury vehicle, valued at approximately Sh3.5 million, due to its exorbitant maintenance costs. He expressed regret over his initial choice to purchase the car, acknowledging that it had been an expensive journey to maintain.

“I love cars a lot, and so I was young and foolish, and I spent so much on my car, and it has been a very expensive journey to maintain. I am like, that is a car I would have used wisely somewhere. I sold it. I have decided to go back on Uber,” explained Karanja.

Karanja had shared an image with the BMW X3 just a day before announcing his separation from Kate Actress in September 2023. The image featured him beside the sleek vehicle that he had gifted Kate for her birthday in January 2020, a month after the birth of their child.

The couple clarified that the decision to sell the car was made mutually. In a social media statement, Karanja wrote, “I wish to officially document that the vehicle was sold with mutual consent, and there are no disputes with Kate, contrary to any portrayals suggesting otherwise.”

Kate Actress reposted the statement, adding, “Kindly redirect that energy to watching the new season of Becoming CEO. We ain’t about that life. Poleni and thank you.”

“I made a mistake,” TV director Phil Karanja on offering to sell Kate Actress’s BMW X3 as a “push gift”

Renowned actor and film director Philip Karanja recently revealed that he sold the black BMW X3 he had gifted his wife, Catherine Kamau, also known as Kate Actress, in January 2020. The car, valued at approximately Sh 3.5 million, was sold due to its high maintenance costs, as Philip disclosed in an interview with Nairobi News.

Expressing regret over his decision to purchase the luxury vehicle, Philip stated:

“I love cars a lot, and so I was young and foolish, and I spent so much on my car, and it has been a very expensive journey to maintain. I am like, that is a car I would have used wisely somewhere. I sold it. I have decided to go back on Uber.”

This revelation came during the launch of his latest show, “Haki Mwitu.”

The actor-director shared that “Haki Mwitu” revolves around four vigilantes who, fed up with rampant corruption, take matters into their own hands. The show, which began production in 2023 and is still ongoing, aims to address societal issues through its narrative.

Interestingly, Philip shared an image with the BMW X3 just a day before announcing his separation from Kate Actress in September 2023. The image featured Philip standing beside the sleek vehicle he had gifted Kate for her birthday in January 2020.

Kate Actress celebrated the luxurious gift on her social media, expressing gratitude for the reward.

“Every push has been rewarded,” she captioned a video showcasing her new ride, with another post quoting, “God says try me! Do your part!”

During the interview, Philip also discussed his production company’s plans for the year.

“We started working on the project in 2023 and began shooting in November 2023, and we are still shooting. Phil Production also has a new series in the pipeline, and we plan to release a new film this year. There’s a lot to watch out for,” he added, promising an exciting lineup for fans in the upcoming months.

Abel Mutua and Phil Karanja get the 8 million shilling bag from Netflix!

Abel Mutua, an actor and screenwriter, and Phillip ‘Phil’ Karanja, a director and actor, are in line to make a sizeable profit of at least $60,000 (Sh8.8 million) from the sale of their 2020 film, “Click Click Bang,” to Netflix, the well-known American video-on-demand streaming service. The Netflix contract is a big win for the filmmakers because it means their film will be rebroadcast on the streaming platform.

Reuben Odanga, a seasoned film producer best known for his blockbuster films “Selina,” “Nira,” “Nuru,” “Kiu,” and “Saida,” verified the sizable payment from Netflix.
In a recent interview, Odanga, who also had his film “Nafsi” selected by Netflix in 2021, delivered the wonderful news.

In a recent interview, Odanga, who also had his film “Nafsi” selected by Netflix in 2021, delivered the wonderful news. After leaving the hit television program “Tahidi High,” Abel and Phil teamed up to start their own production firm, Phil-It Productions.

The humorous series “The Real Househelps of Kawangware” was one of their first works under Phil-It, and it launched the careers of comedians Timothy “Njugush” Kimani and Steven “DJ Shiti” Oduor. It was a joint effort with Protel Studios, who held the intellectual property rights, according to Phil Karanja. They were primarily responsible for casting, directing, and other creative parts of the production.

The “Sue Na Johnnie” series, which Phil-It developed as its first independent movie in 2016, was later acquired by Showmax in 2017.
The popularity of “Sue Na Johnnie” provided Abel Mutua and Phil Karanja with further possibilities, paving the road for their future success in the entertainment business.

Phil Karanja and Kate Actrress blast Milele FM host

Ankali Ray, the fearless, courageous, and brave presenter of Milele FM, spoke with Phil Karanja and Kate Actress this week about their separation.

Prior to asking the awkward questions, Ankali expressed sympathy for the former Tahidi High actor during their interview.

“Naongea na nani?”

The radio host’s response, however, did not satisfy Phil, who went on to inquire whether it was appropriate for him to call at that time.

“Hii ni muda ya kupigia mtu?”

To which Ankali Ray responded saying,

“I was just calling to give my apologies,”

In response Phil hung up.

Ankali, however, is a persistent person, so he made the decision to phone Kate Actress and try again to express his sympathy for her.

But as soon as the radio host began speaking, Kate abruptly ended the call, much like Phil before her. But do you believe Ankali was let down by her answer?

Ankali simply shrugged it off, adding that he would continue to work to uncover the truth in the future, similar to how he had previously handled Phil.

The ex-couple has remained silent about the circumstances of their breakup, despite numerous media outlets attempting to break the story.

However, it appears that despite having every right to do so, Kate and Phil have chosen to keep quiet and refuse to say what exactly led to the breakdown of their lovely marriage.

But only lately did Kate have to address a wild rumor that was going around the internet about her firstborn son.

According to a blogger on Wednesday, Kate’s son decided to stay with Phil after learning that his mother had broken up with him so she could stay with the girl.

The claims made on X were met with Kate’s remark, “This is nonsense!”

Kate Actress Denies Claims Son Opted to Stay with Stepdad Phil the Director Rather than Her

Kate Actress has refuted claims that her son opted to stay with his stepfather Philip Karanja alias Phil the Director after their separation.

Kate and Phil announced their separation on Tuesday, saying they had amicably agreed to end their union. They said they were still friends, business partners, and co-parents.

However, a blogger on Wednesday claimed that Kate’s son had opted to stay with Phil after his mother went separate ways with Phil while she would stay with the daughter.

Kate responded to the claims on social media, saying, “This is rubbish!”

She also said that her separation from Phil was never a secret and thanked fans for their support.

Some social media users suggested that the whole separation could have been staged for clout after Phil’s business associate and best friend, Abel Mutua, put up a cheeky post on Instagram.

Mutua insinuated that he too had broken ranks with Phil, a BMW owner, due to their “vehicular differences.”

Both Kate and Phil laughed off the statement with laugh emojis.

It is clear that Kate and Phil are committed to co-parenting their children despite their separation. They have also requested privacy for themselves and their children during this difficult time.

Kate Actress reveals she hated her first interaction with Phil Karanja’s family

In a previous interview with Fashionable StepMum on YouTube two years ago, Kate Actress opened up about her complicated relationship with her mom-in-law and her now ex-husband Phil Karanja.

Kate praised her mom-in-law for her relationship with her son, but admitted that they had their own issues. “You can feel the energy. It wasn’t pleasant. You can feel the sneaky comments. But I wasn’t a charity case. I was sure of myself. I knew what I was bringing to the table. Your son isn’t coming to rescue us. I was doing well with my son even before.”

She also revealed that she had warned Phil that she would leave the marriage if she saw anyone mistreating her son. “I had made it clear to Phil and for him to communicate to his family that if I see any mistreatment towards my son, that is a deal breaker na mimi sinaga kesho.”

Kate also praised Phil as a rare gem of a man who entered into their union with serious commitment. “It is not easy. Phil is one in a million. Marriage is not for everyone. Marriage nayo ni calling. It might not be for you. Don’t force it. If it happens to you thank you Lord. If it does not please move on…. Life is for the living, please date again.”

Despite the challenges in their marriage, Kate and Phil have remained committed to co-parenting their son and maintaining a civil relationship.

Abel Mutua laughs at news of Phil Karanja getting dumped

The recent split between Kate Actress and Phillip Karanja, two of Abel Mutua’s closest friends, has been given a humorous spin.
On Wednesday, September 20, 2023, Mutua created his own humorous statement by mocking the couple’s amicable breakup.

Abel Mutua announced in his tongue-in-cheek statement that he would no longer be friends with Mr. Karanja because of their “vehicular differences.”
Mutua made a humorous fun at Phillip Karanja’s choice of vehicle by drawing inspiration from the couple’s joint statement.

“JOINT STATEMENT Mkuru & Director Phil. Nairobi 20 September 2023 ‘We have come to the conclusion that going our separate ways is best for both of us. This is due to our vehicular differences. Associating with a BMW owner has taken a toll on me and we wish that you please respect our decision. Signed Mkuru and Phil,”.

Since then, the message has drawn responses from Kate Actress and Philip, a previous couple.
Kate joked back in a lighthearted manner, stating,

“Nugu wewe,”

In a lighthearted attitude, Director Phil continued,

“Mtu BladiFakin sana😂😂😂😂.”

Andrew Kibe finally addresses Kate Actress and Phil Karanja split

The marriage between Kate Actress and Phil Karanja has ended, and social commentator Andrew Kibe has something to say about it.

Like most Kenyans, Kibe has something to say on his account.

Kibe attacked Kate’s remarks by playing an earlier video of her talking about fathers who stand up, as well as one showing how Phil welcomed her after a trip to South Africa.

Aiee the pain that is in Nairobi right now. Watu wa roho mbaya come her. I will ask you one question. Finally, she has left that msee. I talked about it a few months back. Do you guys remember when she came from South Africa? And she was crying …

Men what did I show you how many times am I going to teach this lesson If you dont learn a lesson you will perish, men, you will find yourself on how to keep the calm edition. When you find yourself here, it means you are a joke. Niliwashow aje? Please if you hear she is a single mum tell her…eheeh look at the time si nita kucall. Toka mbio kaa mwizi.

Buda! Us baby daddy’s I want to teach you we have full access to those **Bro any person who has my child iyo ni yangu I can pick it up anytime I want. Even if it is my last day on earth and I need one last time, I will just pick any one of my baby mamas. You can walk in or out anytime, all day all night. The only thing that is keeping her relationship alive is because you don’t want her. The day you want her, that guy is crying. “

Kibe reiterated his warning to “tunuthias,” as he refers to men who look after children who are not their own. Kate thanks men in that video for,

 “I just want to salute the men who step in who took over and just nurtured, mad mad respect and God bless you and for not making us feel less, but supporting our dreams and pushing us to become even better moms, wives. Thank you so much.

Tunuthia, how long do I have to keep telling you? Mnacheki venye mnasukwa hapo. Oh God bless you young man, for taking care of children that are not yours, and God is going to come through for you, not me but God” 

Women waste no time, start hitting on Phil Karanja

Many Kenyans were taken aback when Phil Karanja and Kate Actress announced their marriage was ending.

Although there were early indications that the couple might be having problems, many chose to ignore them in light of the collaborative video they created assuring people of their relationship.

Nevertheless, several Kenyans (especially those of the fairer gender) have slyly offered as a salve to the undoubtedly bereaved Phil now that the highly prosperous couple has called it quits.

vg_mumle, “My Phil, if you need a shoulder to lean on, I will be there. You deserve better❤️❤️.” Read more.”

Sueshepherd0, “Baba Njeri, thanks now you are single.”

Esther Njoki, “Director Phil, I think you are my lost rib.”

helnmal, “Nko singular❤️,we can prural.”

Award-winning actress Kate Actress and her husband Phil Karanja have announced their separation.

In a joint statement, the couple said that they have been separated for a while and that they are asking for privacy during this time.

“We came to a conclusion to end our marriage a long while ago and are separated. We sincerely request everyone to honour our wishes for privacy for us and our kids,” the statement read.

Phil also stated that they will continue to be friends, co-parents, and business partners.

The couple was set to celebrate their 6th wedding anniversary in November. They got married at Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club in November 2017.

Kate Actress and Phil have a daughter together and they also raised a son from Kate’s previous relationship.

I wish Kate Actress and Phil Karanja all the best in their future endeavors.

Multi-millionaire Phil Karanja talks about people expecting him to be a failure

Phil Karanja’s mediocre academic record inspired him to make a promise to succeed and disprove the notion that he was a loser.

On Monday, July 17, Phil admitted that he had academic difficulties but detested the idea that he would amount to nothing in life while speaking to Lynn Ngugi on her YouTube channel.

But his parents had a disagreement with him about his grades. In particular, his father gave Phil self-doubt.

“I had an amazing father and mother, The only thing we fought about was my love for sports and art, and at that time he was right there was no future for arts and sports then,”

His father desired that he pursue a career in accountancy or medicine.

“That’s the only thing we never connected with my dad apart from that he was a great man, and now as a dad I see it, coz you want the best for your child,”

But to him these things, art, acting, music, he was like, what is all this? The most you are going to amount to is maybe a teacher.

That’s what he kept telling me, so I think when you start from a young age, you’ve always told you are not good enough because you are not getting the a’s that your sisters are getting, it gets to you.

I was an average student so I always fought with my dad. When I cleared High School I got a C. For us in our family that was a failure, so by the way everyone at home was wondering what will we do with him, and I think at that point is when something snapped because I was doomed to be a failure. Everyone believed I was going to be a failure. 

And right from when I cleared high school I have been putting in the hours, I started with scripting and directing church plays.

Because my parents weren’t sure what to do with me, so they asked me what I want to do, I said I want to do film.

Sue na Johnnie sunk me into 3mill Ksh debt – Phil Karanja

Philip Karanja, a well-known director, claims that the creation of the once-popular comedy series Sue Na Jonnie, which aired on Showmax, left him and his colleague Abel Mutua destitute and in debt by Sh3 million.

Nearly five years after founding their production firm Phil-It, Karanja, also known as Phil, stated to Showbuzz that Sue Na Jonnie was their first film to be accepted by a broadcaster.

Since deciding to go it alone with their company rather than continuing to rely on being employed by other production houses, the former Tahidi High actors have been searching for employment.

As a director and a scriptwriter, respectively, Phil claims they had been able to find work, but not as a group.

They knocked on every door with their ideas for four good years, but we were denied.

“So when luck struck and our Sue Na Jonnie concept was picked up by MNet, we came in with the idea that we wanted to change the industry, we wanted to improve the welfare of actors. We ended up overpaying the cast and crew, and by the time we finished the first season, we were Sh3 million in debt.”

Because of the dire circumstances, “while our cast members were driving cars, we were hoping into matatus.”

Fortunately, because of the show’s strong ratings, more seasons were ordered, and Phil and Abel were forced to reconsider the contracts with their cast and crew.

“It was a difficult conversation because the actors questioned why we were reducing their salaries when the show was actually doing well and pushed for an increase instead.”

Phil claims that because they were primarily passionate about making movies at the time and overlooked the economic side of the project, their downfall was a lack of business acumen.
