Fans will be up for a big surprise after Gloria Muliro shared a new photo.
Gospel singer Gloria Muliro has shared a picture of herself looking skinny that got Mercy Masika stunned at her visible weight loss.
Mercy commented ‘where did the weight go…wow..”
Gloria has not been very active on her social media pages and was last dedicating a tribute ot her late father who passed on five years ago. She mourned her dad writing “Papa Muliro, it’s 5yrs today… we miss you, but you are resting I know.. God with us, we soldier on..”
Many celebrity marriages have gone through distress this past year with the likes of Willis Raburu and Ben Kitili’s marriages being some prominent examples of this fact.
Most of the celeb marriages that experience separations or splits never experience healing with the relationship never been salvaged.
But while that might be the general trend for nearly all of these marriages, it isn’t always as cut and dry as we think it is. Just ask Pastor Eric Omba who was at one time married to prominent gospel singer Gloria Muliro.
The “Man of God” explained that he tried in vain to save his marriage to Gloria Muliro even when the marriage looked unsalvagable.
During an interview on Switch TV revealed that he had tried speaking to Gloria’s parents, her siblings, her friends and literally anyone close to the singer.
”Moving on was a fight. I followed her for over one and a half year, I even reached to her parents, her dad, her sisters, friends and literally everyone close to her. I was trying to repair the relationship and mend things,” the pastor said.
Pastor Omba explained that the divorce proceedings had been instituted by Gloria even if he was adamant that he didn’t want to go through with it but was even threatened with lawyers by his ex-wife.
”We even had a sit down with a bishop at the Intercontinental (hotel) and he wanted us to sort our issues and get back but she said her time was over. She said she cannot come back, She wanted the divorce and I did not want it,” he added.
The two got divorced in 2017 with Gloria claiming that Omba’s philandering was the reason for their split, catching him red-handed severally, an accusation that he strenuously denied.
She said that she felt that the time was now right and that the new song spoke about God’s goodness as not just a blessing, but a perfect fit especially with this pandemic attacking the economy from all directions.
The singer said;
Huo wimbo hatujaufanya wakati huu. Huo wimbo ni wa kitambo, zaidi ya miaka mitatu hivi. Ni wimbo tuliofanya nyakati amabazo Willy hakuwa ameanza kufanya hizo nyimbo zingine. Sio wimbo wa sasa ni wimbo wa kitambo.
The reason she decided to release a lyric video was that it was something that many would not expect.
On the issue of whether she would be doing an official video, the singer made it known that for now, they will be working with the uploaded video until she is done solving her issue with Pozee.
According to Gloria, she has a niggling issue about where Willy stands in relation to his gospel music and that’s why she hasn’t done a video yet. She said;
“Ni kweli kwamba Willy aliweza kuni approach kwa sababu ya kufanya video ya huu wimbo; lakini nikawa na swali ambalo najua wengi pia wamekuwa wakijiuliza. Nikiangalia comments ambazo watu wanaandika wengi wanauliza je Willy amerudi gospel au vipi? Na ninatiwa moyo sana nikiona wengi wangependa Willy akiwabariki na nyimbo za gospel vile alikuwa akiwabariki kitambo.”
The “Nani kama Wewe” singer described the struggles she went through in the hands of a stepmom. Muliro is the second born in a family of two and lost her mom at the age of nine, something that completely changed her life.
“My childhood life was full of problems. It was not easy. My mom died while we were so young and life completely changed. I was nine years at the time and my elder sister was around 13 years,” she said. Muliro narrated that despite her biological father staying with them that her life had been tough for them.
She also revealed her father remarried so that the new woman could take care of the young twins who had been left behind after her mother died the morning of the birth.
“My father remarried and for sure he had to because on the day my mom died she had given birth to twins that morning,” recalled an emotional Muliro.
That wasn’t the only tragedy that befell the Muliro family. The singer explained that those very twins died six months after their mom’s death.
“The twins died while they were six months old. One of them died first and on the burial day, the other one also died,” she added.
Like the stereotypical story of the evil stepmother, Muliro explained how her stepmother mistreated them when their father wasn’t there to protect them
“My stepmom behaved like a typical one. We suffered in her hands and although my father defended us, he was not always there for he lived far working to fend for his family,” said Muliro.
Gloria Muliro and Pastor Eric Omba were once a loving couple who lived together as husband and wife, uplifting each other’s lives emotionally and career wise, but the love didn’t make it to happily ever after.
In a shocking revelation, in 2015, singer Gloria Muliro came out to confess that her marriage was a big pretense and that she had called it off because he was physically abusing her, had an affair and misused her money.
The two have since moved on, but it looks like Eric Omba was done even before the separation after it was revealed that he was already living with a younger woman, and had a child together.
Pastor Omba surprised everyone when he showed off his new woman and child, an adorable girl, on social media, yet he had said that he would never remarry if Gloria Muliro would not reconcile with him. But I guess he lied.
Eric Omba is currently dating a lady by the name Bella Dee, a singer, and the two were blessed with a daughter by the name Elaina Omba, back in 2016.
A lot of people have been criticizing him for living and getting intimate with a lady he hasn’t officially married but Eric Omba seems to be ignoring them and continues to show off his beautiful family to the world, proving that he’s content. He wrote this in one of the pics;
God first and family second.
Check out their recent adorable photos together, looking all merry and delighted.
