Bongo songbird Vanessa Mdee and her singer beau Juma Jux are still an item.

The rumor mill has been working overtime alleging that the celebrity couple has parted ways due to “incompatibility”. The fact that the celebrity couple has not been seen together in the public of late has only fuelled the rumors.

But according to Vanessa Mdee, they have both been busy with their individual projects and that is why they are not seen together as was the case a few months ago.

“Jux and I cannot be together all the time. There are times when our individual work projects consume our energies. When we’re not spotted together, a section of our fans tend to think that we’ve split up.

“Let me clarify that Jux and I are still together, and there is nothing that has caused a strain in our love life. We are working hard to ensure we keep our brands at the top,” Vanessa Mdee told Tanzania’s Motomoto News.

Vanessa and Jux got back together in August last year after a brief break up.

In a past interview, Mdee cited irregular communication as a key reason for the break-up.

“Sometimes I would send him (Jux) a text message at 6 am but he would reply at 12 noon. If the platform of sending the text was WhatsApp, I would see two blue ticks on our chat thread, which indicate the recipient of the message actually read the text – and at what time he did so.

“Most of the instances, he read the texts a few minutes after I had sent them. Sometimes I would enquire if he had eaten, and he would give me a curt response. Such habits communicated that our relationship was undergoing a turbulent phase,” said Vanessa Mdee.

The couple, however, managed to iron out their differences.
