After quitting the popular entertainment TV show 10Over10 last Friday, showbiz media girl Joey Muthengi has revealed that she will be focusing on her perceived romantic relationship with international Kenyan footballer MacDonald Mariga.
Even as critics reason that her departure was catalysed by her advertising role in BetIn, a gaming firm that has competing interests with a Citizen owned betting company, the presenter says she felt it was time for her to pursue other interests, top in her agenda being moving to Milan, where her new-found love lives.
“Mariga is a cool person. I am fond of him. I will be moving to Italy in January and I guess time will tell what next,” she stated.
“I don’t know where this (relationship) will take us. Ask Mariga. But we will see what becomes of it. Unfortunately, I just felt that what I was going to do with life did not coincide with what Citizen TV had for me. Besides, I had a good time there and I will miss everyone, especially my fans,” she said.
Since Mariga and Joey went to Italy together mid this year to shoot the popular BetIn TV and outdoor adverts, speculation has been rife that the two have something going on, thanks to the chemistry witnessed between them.
“I have absolutely nothing against Royal Media. Nothing. This was an amicable split. I owe them for everything they offered me over the years,” Joey told MondayBlues.
