He was also the warm seat narrator during the entertainment show of heartstrings for a record eight times. This later introduced him to the hot seat, which he did twice for two hours. His side hustled enabled him to raise money for college at the east African school of media studies.
Chipukeezy was born in a family of five, all of them being comedians. His father’s name is kinengo, a protégée he uses often when cracking his jokes. He was raised in Tala, Machakos County.
Chipukeezy says that his acting career started way back when he was still in high school and at one time it helped him a great deal since he pulled one funny apology when he was almost getting expelled and he got his way and was not expelled. He says he used to visit carnivore so that he could tell Churchill how good he was and one day he was lucky to talk to him and landed an audition.
He auditioned frequently but the director did not think he was good enough. He later got a chance to the stage and was on every recording for the whole of season three.

He wrote a beautiful message on his Instagram page on leaving quoted “A love letter to my dear kiss FM. … Babe!

Chipukeezy Appointment/ Chipukeezy NACADA
Comedian Vincent Mwasia Mutua who is popularly known as Chipukeezy has been appointed as NACADA board member. According to a gazette notice issued by Interior Cabinet Secretary on Wednesday he will serve in the position for three years.
Chipukeezy built a school, St. Martins Academy in his village in Tala, Kangundo to boost education. Chipukeezy says he wanted to build the school due to the experiences he had to go through because of not having a good education. He says that when he was young, education was not a priority simply because one could not afford it and if you could, getting a good grade was even harder due to the dilapidated state of the schools, therefore he had to take it upon himself to change that.
“Back at home I have this small project that am doing and today I confidently say that St Martins Academy in Tala, Kangundo is a fully registered primary school. Above all am happy that all the young people in my village have a place where they can study during day and night. I pray and believe that one day I will see the completion of this institution fully. Not forgetting the year 2017 the school provided KCPE 2017 candidates for the first time.
Chipukeezy was previously engaged to Vivian Kerubo alias Empress Kerry, he proposed to her in 2016 during her birthday which was attended by close family members. They broke off the engagement in November 2018. During an interview, Chipukeezy alleged that the separation was mutual.
“To be honest, we agreed that whatever we wanted to do together would not work out, and it was a peaceful agreement. Tulikua tunaenda Canaan tukapata mamba. We moved on because there is more to life than just love and relationships. People should stop speculating things, but instead, let her move on with her life. She is free to be out there and get other people.”
Chipukeezy is in a relationship with a lady named Kibanja. It is alleged that the two have been married after they were seen wearing rings although we can not verify the story.

Weeks after bitter fall out with Ebru TV, NACADA director and Comedian Mwasia Mutua, popularly known as Chipukeezy has found a new home for his show. On Wednesday, September 25, in what seemed like a PR stunt, the comedian announced his new show will air on October 7, 2019, and interviews for content creators and camera operators were ongoing.
However, on Friday, September 27, Chipukeezy shared a video of him leaving TV47 studios with a crowd of youth waiting for him outside, a suggestion that was going to be the new home for his show. He was late joined with the group of excited youth for a sumptuous lunch to celebrate the new development.
This comes days after claims that the comedian was missing and a grand welcome back by comedians Eric Omondi and Kartelo who picked him up at JKIA in cars branded The Chipukeezy Show. The star also said the show would be airing on Chipukeezy TV, with its live recording shot at the Kenya National Theatre and that his team will be visiting schools and universities for live recordings too.
