Rapper Octopizzo was recently interviewed by veteran musician, Mwafrika on his ‘Iko Wapi’ podcast. One of the areas that he opened up on was his relationship with his former Mexican lover, Christine Fernandes.

Speaking in an interview with Mwafrika, the ‘Fuego’ rapper said that he and his Mzungu rapper (with whom they share a 7-year-old daughter called Zara) met at a Gigiri party his boss had invited him to.

The two soon started seeing each other with the relationship advancing to the point where they started living together, with the rapper raising his 11-month old baby who is now his 10-year-old daughter Tracy.

Despite the two breaking up, the musician had some fond memories of some of the things that she had taught him.

“One thing she taught me was communication. In our culture men don’t communicate or show emotion. I had never celebrated my birthday but she offered to help me get a passport or learn how to drive for my birthday. Each required about Sh6,000 and she asked me to choose. I decided to apply for a passport and within six months I was booked to perform in Dubai,” Octo narrated.

He said that traveling also opened his perception about different cultures, “Travelling opened my mind to other cultures. I used to think all foreigners were from the US but I learned that my girlfriend was Mexican,” he said.

One of the reasons that the two split up was her uncompromising nature. The rapper explained, “She used to bully a little and felt like the bigger person. For instance, if we were to buy a seat she would insist on having her way without compromise. Eventually, I told her that I need to create my home the way I have dreamt it to be, what I have been working towards for me and my family. That is how we broke up, in 2015. People don’t know this,” Octopizzo said.
