Content creator Sharon Mwangi and musician Kagwe Mungai have announced that they are parting ways.

Through a collaborative Instagram post on Friday, they shared the news with their fans in a raw and candid statement.

While sharing a picture of them lovingly holding onto each other, the former lovebirds said that they felt the need to be transparent with their fans even though it did feel “cringe.”

The statement read: "You have been a part of our journey and for that, we are incredibly grateful. We want to be transparent with you all even though sharing this publicly feels a little cringe."

"We know how easily facts can be misconstrued so know that anything you hear or read elsewhere is likely fiction or assumptions. The truth is, we have decided to lovingly separate as a couple. Our journey together has been extraordinary, filled with deep love and affection."

They however noted that the love they have for each other remains but it is taking a beautiful new shape, a chance for each of them to blossom on their own paths.

The two further noted that there was no negativity between them.

They urged their fans to think of it as two best friends recognizing it is time for individual space to pursue their most fulfilling lives.

"We won't be engaging in further discussions on this and we deeply appreciate your understanding and respect for our privacy. Thank you to everyone who supported, prayed and rooted for us," they said.

Sharon and Kagwe opened up about their budding relationship around March last year, bringing their fans' speculations to an end.

And in November, during an episode of her podcast, ‘Best Kept Secrets,’ featuring guest makeup artist Joanna Kinuthia, Soila Curtis, and Michelle Shikie, Sharon shared the intimate details of what led to the couple’s public revelation.

Sharon admitted to harboring fears about going public with their relationship. She disclosed seeking advice from close friend Joan, who reassured her that the situation wasn’t as daunting as she had imagined.

"We had a lot of conversations because I was scared. We were not hiding, I had a conversation with Joan and she told me it was not as scary as I thought it was. We decided what our boundaries were,” said Sharon.

On his part, Kagwe had previously stated that he was not actively seeking love, having been heartbroken in the past. The singer had always kept his love life private and had never shown off his girlfriend in the past.

Speaking to Kiss FM, Kagwe said, "I am not dating anyone now because I don't want disruptions. Plus, I have been busy with my album. I dated some days way back, which did not work. My heart has been cheated on for so many times."
