Prezzo ‘reveals’ little-known details about his ex-wife

Kenyan rapper Prezzo (real name Jackson Ngechu Makini) has revealed little-known details about his ex-wife, Daisy Kiplagat.

The union between the rapper and his high school sweetheart back in 2008 seemed like the beginning of a lifelong journey.

However, the path of their love story took an unexpected turn, leading to a breakup that later unearthed intriguing revelations about their relationship.

During a candid session on the Iko Nini Podcast, Prezzo shared a glimpse into the complexities that overshadowed their relationship.

One notable episode was when he made the impulsive decision to pursue Daisy to Canada, prompted by the intervention of Daisy’s influential father, a figure of considerable prominence.

“My ex-wife’s dad was a very prominent person. So when he learned I was in a relationship with her, he moved her to Canada. I later moved to Canada and followed her there. I met my ex in high school. She was my high school sweetheart,” Prezzo recounted.

The story, tinged with youthful passion and impulsiveness, eventually led to their wedding day. However, Prezzo expressed deep regret over the lavishness of the ceremony, a decision that he considered a grave error in hindsight.

“That was the worst mistake of my life. I used 4.6 million on people who didn’t care about me. How the hell do you spend such an amount on a day?” Prezzo ruefully admitted.

He openly questioned the extravagance, recognizing the misplaced priorities that characterized the event.

“I was 28 years old at the time, I wanted my wedding to be my boss’s wedding. If given a second chance, I would do it differently. That is the one thing I wish I could undo — it’s my wedding to my ex-wife.”

He further revealed the financial strain he experienced, attempting to sustain a lifestyle beyond his means.

“I would pay rent as Sh150,000. She came from a wealthy family. I did not want to bring her from Karen to suffer; I was biting off more than I could chew,” Prezzo said.

The narrative took a dramatic turn when his ex-wife publicly accused him of being a negligent father—a portrayal that added layers of complexity to their already tumultuous history.
