Sensational gospel singer Gloria Muliro was at the Radio Jambo studios this week and had some very fascinating insights into her life before the spotlight.
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.
