“I remember walking past my dad’s medicine cabinet and just thinking how easy it would be to just "end this". I remember thinking that I would never live to celebrate my 25th birthday, and if I did, I'd be nuts. Like literally a Mathare case.
“Looking back now all I can say is the devil is a liar!! Look at ALL what he didn't want me to enjoy! A career that I love, a family I adore, and an opportunity to encourage so many young people. Don't believe the negative whispers that sink you into depression. Don't believe them at all.
“You have to know that your future is absolutely bright. And the bigger your struggle appears to be, the greater your future is. So give thanks even in times of hardship because success and happiness is just around the corner. I love you all, and wish you all the very best that life has to offer.”
The singer shared her story on social media leaving many fans in shock and absolute dismay. Yes it seems even the most bright stars at one point are/were greeted by pitch darkness.
