The comedian and content creator heaped praises on his wife as an important part of his successful career and noted that their partnership will continue into the future despite some critics advising him to stop working with her.

He has on several occasions made it clear that he will never stop working with his wife as she has his best interest at heart.

The only person and I keep saying it mtapanda, mtateremka, but I will never stop working with Cele. She is the only person who trusted me when no one, hata hawa wanapiga makelele they were nowhere to be seen and now all of a sudden ...don't work with your wife!!" Njugush said in a recent interview.

"She trusted me, throughout, what we are doing is not something we were taught in school kama daktari. You have to have that experience, and she has been with me since that time. She is also the mother of my children. She makes me better." Njugus said.

He added that Wakavinye comes through in ways that the critics cannot, including landing gigs.

“As Njugush kuna job naweza pata, but as Wakavinye akiingia kwa mix kuna job ingine inaweza come wenye mnasema niwache kuwork na bibi yangu hawawezi kunipea. So if it makes me better, I will keep it close to me. Anyone who says otherwise ni mtu ako na shida, na zina onekana" He added.
