Looking at Kambua it would be hard to imagine that growing up her body was full of scars after she fell into a basin full of hot water while aged three.
Speaking on Maisha Magic’s Story Yangu programme, the singer confessed the incident almost took away her life.
I got burnt so bad,I had 3rd degree burns. For three months I was admitted in hospital with third-degree burns. The doctors despaired…there was little hope for me.
But God still had a plan for my life. God saved me from the sting of death, and in spite of what the doctors feared, I began my slow but steady journey to recovery.
Due to the damage caused on my skin by the burns, the doctors suggested that my family take me for plastic surgery, but before a decision could be made, the great physician, Jehovah Rapha, continued to restore me.
It got to a point where the doctors said there probably would be no use for plastic surgery because it seemed that I was recovering speedily and better than they had expected.
I am now alive with only scars to show that I went through the valley of the shadow of death.
She goes on to add that the scars she developed made her feel ugly and very conscious of people staring at her.
Growing up I was very conscious of my scars, and what people thought of them. I worked hard to conceal them and would never expose myself publicly (for instance during swimming).
I felt ugly, and always endeavoured to protect myself from curious stares.
