VIDEO: Chipukeezy gets Alvindo ‘arrested’ on live TV

Popular Takataka hit-maker Alvindo on Sunday, April 28, was at the centre of controversy after comedian Chipukeezy called ‘cops’ on him during an interview.

On his much-famed Chipukeezy Show that airs on a local TV station at 8 pm, two men appeared from behind the stage, approached the singer and demanded that he follows them to the police station.

Alvindo, evidently terrified reaches for his phone and calls his manager KRG the Don. Unfortunately, the two men insist he drops the call and follows them.

He defiantly pleads his case, asking the two men for an official arrest letter.

“Where is the arrest letter before I follow you? I know my team and I have already communicated to the police,” Alvindo said.

Chipukeezy intervenes, suggesting that the two ‘policemen’ sit down and talk since Alvindo had done nothing wrong.

After a while, the ‘policemen’ get fed up with discussions and insist Alvindo leaves with them, consequently prompting Chipukeezy to ask them to vacate the set.

For the second time, Alvindo tries to reach his manager, but seemingly, the call goes unanswered.

As the tension on set escalated, Chipukeezy hilariously reveals to Alvindo that the two men were not real police officers, leaving the hit maker embarrassed – holding his head in disbelief.

The two men then got back on stage and shook the artist's hand as the audience marveled at the scene.

Kenyans on social media, however, were not impressed by Chipukeezy’s prank on the upcoming artist, some feeling it more or less degraded him, others even suggesting Kenya Films Classification Board boss Ezekiel Mutua drop the ban on Alvindo.
