Actress Jackie Matubia, once known for her close friendship with Milly Chebby, recently addressed her absence from Milly’s traditional wedding, shedding light on the reasons behind her no-show.
Their bond, once strong and visible to their fans, seemed to fade away gradually, drawing attention from their dedicated fan base.
The shift in their friendship dynamics became apparent in July, as they stopped hanging out together, sharing their achievements, or acknowledging each other’s special occasions.
Fans began speculating about the growing rift between the two popular personalities, especially when they stopped making joint appearances and public interactions.
One significant incident that caught fans’ attention was the absence of any public post from Milly Chebby to celebrate Jackie Matubia’s firstborn daughter, adding fuel to the speculation of their strained friendship.
This suspicion grew stronger when both families seemed to distance themselves from each other after Matubia’s younger daughter’s birthday celebration in Mombasa.
After the Mombasa event, Jackie Matubia was often seen spending more time with fellow actresses, Izareeh and Kate Actress, further indicating the shift in her social circle.
On October 21, Terence Creative and Milly Chebby’s glamorous traditional wedding took place in Eldoret.
Surprisingly, Jackie Matubia was noticeably absent from the joyous celebration, prompting inquiries from fans on social media.
In response to the questions flooding her social media, Matubia offered her perspective.
One fan, Malingo_ya_nini, questioned, “Unajitetea ukiwa kipande gani?”
When asked about her absence and whether she was defending herself, she responded, “Why should I defend myself when they have already said I have a bad heart, and I also don’t have a husband?”
Another fan inquired about her absence at her bestie’s ruracio (traditional wedding), to which Matubia replied, “Si unaniona hapa, mbona unauliza swali iko already na jibu?” (“Can’t you see me here? Why are you asking a question when it already has an answer?”)
It’s worth noting that Jackie Matubia had parted ways with her second baby daddy earlier this year, adding another layer to her personal life challenges.
