The poems will continue: Itumbi responds to ridicule over Maribe ballad

Dennis Itumbi.

On 18 December, Dennis Itumbi wrote Jacque Maribe a heartfelt poem for her birthday, with part of it reading:

“So here my birthday note,

At least one day this year find a very rainy mid-morning, I will come with an umbrella,

So that, I can hold just one raindrop for you, place it on your bicep and watch it roll down.

I ask for no more,

Just a chance to watch you re-introduce yourself in 2019,

With your wounds - Yes.

With your visible scars - Yes.

But with fresh stamina… Undeterred passion

Because you are,

Jacque Maribe.”

Following the poem by a Itumbi, a photo of Maribe and her under-siege fiancé Joseph ‘Jowie’ Irungu embracing yesterday emerged, leading to some social media users ridiculing Itumbi.

Jacque and Jowie.

Na hapo itumbi anaandika poems. Bad boy Jowie anakimbiliwa bila poem na kupewa hug and kisses,” wrote a social media user going by the name Warren Riley.

However, Itumbi seemed undeterred by the ridicule, pointing out that the poems will continue even on her wedding day.

“Warren Riley the poems will continue. Even on her wedding day. I will perform a poem,” wrote Itumbi.

Here is a sample of reactions from Kenyans to Itumbi’s poem:

Abu Abdullahi Sorja Just asking itumbi Hana wife na kids?
