Milly Chebby and Jackie Matubia, two major individuals in Kenya’s entertainment sector, were once role models for the power of friendship.
However, sources indicate that they split up, however the specific reason is unknown.
Rumors that they were no longer friends surfaced earlier this year, and symptoms of tension in their friendship arose.
Rumors of a potential feud between the two pals began to swirl in July 2023.
Observers saw that they were no longer collaborating on content and were no longer sharing images as they used to.
Their silence on the topic left supporters perplexed, wondering whether something had gone wrong in their friendship.
Jackie Matubia was confronted about the issue by Milele FM presenter Ankali Ray in July but the mother of two denied any beef between them. According to her, both of them were busy.
On July 4, 2023, they decided to address the rumors and concerns. They posted a video together, seemingly to assure their fans that everything was okay between them.
This public reunion brought a sigh of relief to their followers, who hoped it signified a resolution of any underlying issue.
However, as the months went by, the two friends again caught the public’s attention when Jackie Matubia was absent from Milly Chebby’s traditional wedding.
Fans speculated about the reasons for her absence and questioned if their friendship was indeed intact.
When pressed for answers, Jackie playfully responded that she didn’t have the energy to defend herself, citing the labels of being single and ‘roho mbaya’ (bad intentions) that had been thrown at her.
Although Jackie did not specifically mention Milly Chebby’s name, fans interpreted her comments as a sign that the content creators might not be on the best of terms.
The plot thickened on October 31 when rumors began circulating that Milly Chebby and Jackie Matubia had taken their apparent disagreement to another level.
Reports suggested that they had unfollowed each other on Instagram, a significant move in today’s digital age that often symbolizes a rupture in relationships.
In response to the reports, Milly Chebby was the first to step forward to clarify the situation. She expressed that she was unaware of any move to unfollow each other on the platform.
Jackie Matubia, on the other hand, took to her Instagram stories and shared a video of a woman telling someone to get used to the idea that she unfollowed her on Instagram. According to the words of the woman, it is just Instagram, not a big deal.
The woman in the video further advises the person to make sure they also unfollow back, instead of asking her if she indeed unfollowed her.
It remains to be seen whether the two will address the issues between them and whether their friendship will emerge stronger or continue to face challenges. For now, the saga has certainly kept the public intrigued, with speculation and questions continuing to swirl.
