Exactly a day ago, Coast based artist Nyota Ndogo posted a message on her social media that left many concerned, confused and wondering what she was talking about.
She revealed that for 17 years she has been harboring some emotional pain causing her serious stress and after reaching out to several people it was futile. ‘’Nikiendelea hivi ntakufa. Nimekua na huu uchungu miaka kumi na saba sasa 17years but nimechoka jamani nimechoka ata MUNGU Najua nimechoka.’’ The message read in part.
After some reflection she decided that she would share her problems to the whole world because she wanted them to know what she was going through. So dire is her situation that eating has not been an enjoyable occasion but for survival. ‘’Nitaanza kuweka voicenot. Mtanisamehe nisipofanya hivi sijui maisha yangu yatakua yakulia tu na naona basi nafaa kuwacha kulia.’’ Part of the post read.
She begins with her tough journey through music working as a house girl to make ends meet. With the little she earned, she would buy herself body oil and sanitary towels then send the rest to her mother. But deep down, her heart was in music. Despite her elder brother Juma an artist himself was aware of her passion, he refused to assist her and even discouraged her.
