“I was at a point where I was done with life and contemplating suicide but I could hear a voice say ‘I am not done with you. I will bring along people to help you and lift you up. People you cannot imagine.’ Sure enough, I did get those calls from people urging me on. Telling me not to quit; my mum, Kikwete"
"Can you imagine the president of the country offering to help you? It was God telling me I am important, that this is not you and that you have to get better. So I felt if people of that calibre can think of me and want to help me, who am I not to want to help myself? Today, I look back and see all I have done and gone through and I am still here. God is not done with me. I have so much to give to my family, my fans who support me and healed with me. They are real and they are like my family” she told Couture Africa.
