Comedian Vincent Mutua, better known by his stage name Chipukeezy, is a worried man after an unknown blogger contacted him and demanded for money in exchange of his nude photos.

The blogger reportedly contacted the comedian via an email early this week and demanded to be paid a yet to be disclosed amount of money, failure to which he will leak the embarrassing pictures to the public.

Chipukeezy on Friday took to his Facebook page where he acknowledged the existence of the nude photos and took full responsibility for ‘his stupid mistake’.

He explained that he lost his mobile phone three years ago to gun-wielding thugs in Westlands and suspects the blogger may have accessed the nude photos from the phone.

“I take full responsibility for the stupid mistakes I made and therefore will face the consequences that will come my way however much I may try to buy my freedom which has a price to me there is nothing as priceless as accepting my faults,” Chipukeezy wrote.

The recently engaged comedian said; “It is up to the person responsible to do what he wants because what has been built over the years by Kenyans cannot just be destroyed maliciously.”

The comedian has been going through lean times after his stand-up shows in Europe and Asia received lukewarm reception.
