Tanzanian celebrity couple Jux and Vanessa Mdee are making trends on the internet again after Jux opened up about Vanessa’s jail period.
Jux who has in many occasions professed his love for Vanessa Mdee to a point where he went on social media to denounce rumors about him having a relationship with Kenyan socialite Huddah Monroe, said the entire period really brought a huge impact on Vanessa’s life.
Last year, the Tanzanian government shocked many when it publicly named and shamed celebrities among suspected drug peddlers, as it sought to fight drug abuse. Many artistes were arrested and taken to the police station for questioning.
Vanessa Mdee was among those who were summoned and was jailed for seven straight days, something that really affected her as well as her family and close friends.
In an interview with radio personalities Shaffie and Adelle, her boyfriend Juma Jux said the arrest had a big impact on Vanessa.
“Nilikua natamani hata ingekua possible tubadilishane, yeye awe nje na mimi niwe ndani. It was a hard time. When she left jail, Vanessa had changed, she wasn’t the same Vanessa Mdee I knew. She even started saying she wants to leave the country, if it was not for music then she wouldn’t have been caught in all that. Lakini hiyo situation imemtengeneza na pia imemfundisha kitu flani. Tunashukuru Mungu,” he said.
When asked how the whole situation affected their relationship, he said, “Before Vanessa, I had a girlfriend called Jacky. Alikua na matatizo na kufanya mambo flani ambayo si poa, but I didn’t know anything about it.
So Vanessa alipofika akasema ‘Jux maybe all this is because of you coz bila wewe mimi singeitwa hapa’.So Vanessa alipotoka alibadilika, alikua na mambo mingi, she was doubting everybody na mtu yoyote akija kwake anamwambia vitu tofauti.From that time alipotoka pale, ndio tulibreak up.”
The couple has recently been seen together more than before since they announced their come back.
