Her name surfaced onto the scene this past week as part of the scandal revolving around comedian Chipukeezy’s meet and greet with world wide icon Kevin Hart.
Chipukeezy had earlier accredited his getting to meet Kevin Hart to an anonymous white lady before Christine by way of social media ‘receipts’, showed the world just how untrue that was.
This Kenyan Churchill show performer and radio show host has since apologized to both Christine and to his fans, and in case you are only now getting to know about this Kenyan born beauty, here’s what you need to know about her.
Christine Wawira has lived abroad for quite some time with family, having left Kenya at the tender age of 7. She developed a love for acting and became quite good at it from as early as high school, featuring in some notable films, documentaries, series, shows and commercials, including East African Girl, Flash, Blacklisted, Sign of the Dragon, Red Carpet hosting at the Oscars & Grammys, Night Call, among others.
Besides her pretty enviable acting portfolio, Christine Wawira is a mother of two and has also done some modeling.
Chipukeezy’s apology to her read (in part);
Hi Wawira, I appreciated you for holding my hand when I needed it. I am sorry I did my interview in a way that didn’t acknowledge you or give you credit. For a person who relied on other established artists to climb the ladder, I atleast owed you a mention. For that I am sorry forgive me . To my fans and everyone who has my back, I am sorry for letting you down. I have learnt a valuable lesson and will strive to do better always.@christinewawira
To get you all caught up on that situation, here is the initial interview that started it all. You know. The one where he narrates a story about the anonymous white woman who helped him get to meet Kevin Hart.
And here’s a screenshot of a message exchange between an understandably surprised Christine Wawira and Chipukeezy.
During her steady rise to the top, Christine has gotten to rub shoulders with some major names like actor Tom Cruise, musicians Nico and Vinz, actor Andrew Garfield and many more as is posted on her instagram.
