Chipukeezy penned a heartfelt appreciation to Charlene Ruto, Kenya’s celebrated ‘first daughter’, on social media expressing his gratitude for her unwavering support throughout his comedic journey. He acknowledged the profound impact of genuine friendship, stating that it’s something learned through life experiences rather than in a classroom.

The President’s Daughter Charlene Ruto, Thank you for being a great friend and for being part of my journey. Join us as we celebrate this decade achievement at The Ten Toes Down Event,” read Chipukeezy’s caption
