Video Director Mushking

Celebrated Kenyan music video Director Mushking, husband to rapper Xtatic is out of danger after spending months in Hospital.

On Tuesday Mushking who is recuperating at the Mater Hospital took to Instagram to update his followers on how he is fairing on, following a wrong diagnosis in his battle to get well.

In a post seen by Pulselive.co.ke, King disclosed that he is was wrongly diagnosed with Miller Fisher Syndrome,a rare non-chronic condition, but later it was discovered he is suffering from Myasthenia Gravis, a lifelong chronic neuro-muscular auto-immune disease.

Wrongly diagnosed

“Guess who's back?! Well not fully (pirate patch is not a fashion statement but all Glory to God I’m alive. I've been waiting for the right time of full recovery to send a grand thank you message for your prayers, support and financial contributions during my dire season of sickness but it seems that time is not coming soon. When I fell sick I was wrongly diagnosed with Miller Fisher Syndrome,a rare non-chronic condition when infact I have Myasthenia Gravis,a lifelong chronic neuro-muscular auto-immune disease. Their symptoms are very similar: paralysis or weakness of muscles, double vision, chronic fatigue etc but are managed with the same procedures hence why I didn’t deteriorate further”

 He added that since falling sick, his physical independence and vision has been affected a lot.

Physical independence

“I have only just recently come to terms with the fact that I might not have my normal life back -my 20/20 vision, my physical independence and my strength. However there is a surgery (thymectomy) and mild-chemotherapy (Rituximab infusion) that have 30-40% remission rates in MG patients. I’m hoping to be able to get them when I’m financially ready. For now I’m on inhibitors and steroids to give me strength to move and reduce the pains. I’m not able to exert myself physically as before but I push myself where I can. All in all I’m greatful to God for the gift of life, family, friends and well-wishers like you - this is just a phase in my journey and a setup for an amazing testimony for all of us one day. Let’s continue to pray and support each other. Thank you” wrote MushKing.

Mushking also known as King Muriuki is the creative mind behind Gilad Millo’s music videos as well as other artistes like Stella Mwangi and many others. He is also the man behind the shooting of XYZ show.
