He stressed that their partnership revolves around creating content, a journey that Jackie Matubia encouraged him to embark on.
Muma admitted that, initially, he was reserved about content creation due to his private nature.
However, with Jackie's support, he ventured into the realm of content creation, finding enjoyment in it and becoming better at it alongside the accomplished actress who scooped the Actress Influencer of the Year Award at the Pulse Influencer Awards 2022
"Hii story ya content ni yeye alikuwa ananipush sana nijaribu. It wasn’t something I was open to because naturally I am a very private person.
"And with her being a very good actress, I feel she has also made me a better content creator. I find myself doing a lot of content with her," he said.
Addressing any concerns that his friendship with Jackie might have posed problems between her and her ex-fiance' Blessing Lunga'ho, Muma clarified that he has been friends with both of them throughout their relationship.
"I was there before they went public with their relationship, I was there during their relationship and am there even now. I am the constant. Whatever happened to her is her personal life.
"I find it interesting that people try to stretch such a simple skit into a whole thing, It has never been a problem. Am friends with both of them. Ata kuna content we've done the three of us, so if it was a problem then ingeonekana kitambo," he said.
As for his own personal life, Muma Pix revealed that his current priorities are centered on his work and aspirations. Until he achieves his ambitious goals, he isn't actively seeking a romantic relationship.
