She was on her final year in Daystar University then, and yes, there was no stopping Debbie from living her quest of becoming one of the top showbiz princesses in the region. It was at the height of Tattuu’s success that Debbie met Shaffie Weru, an ambitious young chap who had just graduated from college. He had studied mass communication. The two hit it off and became an item. By 2005, Debbie was expecting Shaffie’s baby, the beautiful Milan. Even though the couple parted ways last year after a fall out, which saw them trade accusations on social media, the Debbie-Shaffie affair was not short of controversy. In fact, it was never a surprise when the two announced that they had gone separate ways, much as it won’t be a shock if the two got back together.They are like tempestuous soulmates! They had only dated for two years when rumours of their split hit showbiz headlines. That was in October 2004. However, they both trashed the rumours and announced that they were preparing to wed.
The romantic relationship was at its best that year and could onlyhave gotten better as Debbie landed a job at Kiss FM, the same station where Shaffie worked. Their wedding plans were on high gear even though their split rumours got even worse. The entry of Joan, Shaffie’s newcomer girlfriend, is said to have hurt Debbie to the point of tears and so much so after Shaffie announced he was set to marry Joan. All Debbie wanted was to keep the split on the lowdown and avoid public humiliation.
