At the first sign of trouble, most spouses prefer to up and run but not Celestine who stood by Njugush when he didn’t have a penny to his name.
“I’m not getting married” comedian says
Njugush and Celestine’s love story is one of those exceptional love stories which we rarely hear of nowadays.
In the past, Njugush said that “When we met, I had no bed and was sleeping on a mat night in, night out. I was financially unstable but she insisted on staying. I used to use her meal card because I was broke.”
His broke-ness was so bad that he came up with a crafty way to dump her for he felt that he had no future to look forward to. But Celestine would have none of it:
“I remember when I was almost through with college; I was hopeless on getting a job. So I craftily tried to break up with her because I had no future to offer – Stupid (of me) right? But let me tell you, she stuck by me; and kept praying for me. She told me: ‘Once you get a job, you can dump me; but for now, no.’ Funny, right? She is my friend; she is my people."
Now Njugush is a far cry from the poor Kenya School of Mass Communication student who could barely make ends meet, and Celestine is still by his side.
A while back, users on social media shared a photo indicating that this couple will be getting married at P.C.E.A Evergreen in Runda on December 16th this year. The poster even had the hashtag #celestinewedstim.
But as Njugush revealed, he is not getting married... at least for now.
The picture of his ‘invitation card’ was just a promo for his new show ‘Lord of the Rings’that will be directed by Abel Mutua who he has worked with on 'The Real Househelps of Kawangware' and 'Hapa Kule News'
"Introducing my first stand-up comedy show. A story of 1 man who married 3 women directed by @abelmutua #lordoftherings” part of the caption read.
