In an Instagram post, he expressed gratitude for the show's resurrection, attributing it to divine blessings.
"With a heart full of gratitude, I can hardly believe I'm saying this - the Chipukeezy Show is back! 🙏 After 3 years break , this journey feels even more meaningful, and I can't thank God enough for His blessings," Chipukeezy wrote.
Chipukeezy acknowledged the show's new home, KBC Channel 1, praising it as the preeminent and easy-to-watch station.
With heartfelt gratitude, he dedicated this upcoming season to the unwavering fans who have held on and supported the show.
"A special heartfelt accolade to our new home, KBC Channel 1, the number one and most senior, easy-to-watch station! To all the fans who held on, get ready for an incredible season ahead. This one's for you!" he stated.
The journey of the Chipukeezy Show
The Chipukeezy Show's journey has had its share of twists and turns. It initially aired on Ebru TV before disagreements with the station's management led to an abrupt conclusion.
Chipukeezy revealed that the management had proposed removing Kartelo from the show due to concerns about the show's perceived shift towards a 'ghetto' style. However, Chipukeezy stood his ground and refuted this notion.
“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,” wrote Chipukeezy on Instagram.
Later on, the show found a new home at TV47, where it continued to tickle audiences until it eventually bid farewell in 2020.
