Comedian Chipukeezy has been forced to postpone his upcoming event after being hospitalized.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by his brother Duke Mike, the funnyman is responding well to treatment.
“Dear friends, fans, and family, we hope this message finds you well and full of love and life. We deeply value and appreciate your unmatched support towards this ten-year comic journey," the statement said in part.
The update also indicated that a new date for Chipukeezy’s show “Ten Toes Down” will be announced later. The show was set to go down on August 5th, 2023.
“Due to this unprecedented, unavoidable, and overwhelming health situation, we regrettably have to postpone Chipukeezy’s upcoming decade celebratory event to a later date that will be communicated in due course after he fully recuperates.
“Your understanding, patience, and support are very much appreciated. We really rally for your prayers during this trying time. Asanteni Sana. God bless you all,” the update from Duke Mike said.
Digital strategist Dennis Itumbi visited Chipukeezy in the hospital and gave an update n his health.
“Chipukeezy was admitted here last night and I have had a chat with him and we are happy with the progress with his medication and the Doctors here are doing a good job.
He is since out of machines and is now in the normal ward, and as you are aware he had a show on August 5th, and following our discussion with the doctors we have decided to postpone the show and the new date will be announced when he is out of the hospital,” Itumbi said.
