Mercy Masika opens up about her acne journey and diagnosis

 

Gospel singer Mercy Masika took to Instagram to share an honest glimpse at her experience with acne, an effect of her ‘kitchen”

She wrote

When I got to 3rd floor I had serious painful Acne. It bothered me so so much because not only were the pimples painful , they were ugly. I’d be on tv and people kept advising. Visited so many skin care experts but the painful pimples didn’t go.

Acne is a common skin condition affecting many women between their teen years up to their thirties yet sadly for other women the challenge persists throughout their lives.

Mercy spoke of how her outbreaks affected her and she attempted to remedy her skin every way she was advised – including spending so much money.

She began doing her own research which led her to her kitchen ingredients.

Well I prayed and fasted and I was honestly led to take lemon and water after all the trouble I’d been through, after all the money I’d spent and after a month I had only scars and totally healed. The solution was in my kitchen.

She offered a message of hope to those dealing with unresolved skin issues.

I WANT TO SAY GOD CARES ABOUT THE SMALLEST THINGS.And he will lead you to make the right decisions if you call on him

Another star who has been open about her skin condition has been Avril, who frequently shows her skin in revealing Instagram pictures to encourage girls.

Evelyn came from a humble background and grew up in Nakuru.

She says her mom did all she could to raise and her other siblings. It was not easy.

“It was tough for my mum. She sold charcoal and become a househelp for her classmate so that she could raise us,” she said in a live conversation with Mercy Masika last night.

Evelyn added that it was even tougher after their dad died.

She recounts playing gambling games called ‘Simbi’ to get money.

“You know those games that would make you steal. I have been a bad girl but my mum could not do anything. I stayed home for two years without going to school.”

They had to repeat classes for staying away from school.
“I hear people saying they have never gone hungry and I wonder because to us it was a norm. Going to bed without food, it was normal. In school, my deskmate used to give me some, and I made sure I was friends with the cooks. I think I should do a documentary about my life,” she said.

Somehow one of her worship leaders paid her school fees and that is how she managed.

Evelyn and Eunice Njeri have a new song titled ‘Worthy’.

“We are the foundation of building a great Africa,” she said hoping to inspire someone with the song.

‘We used to fight’ Mercy Masika on marriage not being easy

Mercy Masika and husband David Muguro have shared their love story and how they met.

Speaking to Samanthas Bridal, David said,

FIRST TIME I SAW MERCY WAS AT A WEDDING, WHERE I WAS SHOOTING A VIDEO. SHE WAS SINGING THERE. I WANTED TO ASK HER TO SING AT MY WEDDING SHE WOULD COME TO SING THE SAME SONG SHE SANG.

Mercy shared her phone number, little did she know one day she would be his wife.

I WAS A REALLY NICE PERSON. I WOULD GIVE MY NUMBER TO PEOPLE BY THEN. HE WOULD SEND ME TIMELY SCRIPTURES. I COULDN’T REMEMBER HIM BECAUSE I GAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE MY NUMBER,’ MERCY SAID.

Adding,

FIVE MONTHS LATER IN JANUARY 2007 WE MET. ON OUR FIRST DATE, WE LIKED EACH OTHER.

David said,

THAT EVENING I REMEMBER I TOLD HER I DON’T WANT TO BE IN THE PUBLIC AT ALL BUT THEN GOD DOES THINGS IN HIS OWN WAY.

After a year and a half, the couple then got married. Masika said,

MY PARENTS KEPT TELLING ME I SHOULD GET MARRIED WITHIN ONE YEAR IF I MET SOMEONE. IN SIX MONTHS YOU SHOULD BE DONE IF YOU’RE SURE BECAUSE TAKING TIME IS NOT GOOD FOR CHRISTIANS.

Her husband echoed her remarks saying,

HOWEVER LONG YOU TAKE [TO GET MARRIED] THERE’S NOTHING NEW YOU’RE GOING TO LEARN ABOUT THIS PERSON.

Talking about their vision, Mercy said,

OUR VISION WAS TO GET MARRIED, HAVE KIDS AND SERVE GOD.

THE BEST THING ABOUT MARRIAGE IS WHEN YOU’RE ABLE TO WORK TOGETHER IN PURPOSE, WHERE YOU SEEK GOD TOGETHER.

Married for nine years now, the couple is blessed with two kids. Mercy revealed her take on why marriages never last long.

A LOT OF MARIAGES FAIL WHEN YOU ARE DOING TOTALLY DIFFERENT THINGS. BECAUSE IF YOU’RE IN EAST AND YOUR PARTNER IS IN WEST BOTH OF YOU MEET A LOT OF PEOPLE. I THINK IT’S GOOD TO WORK TOGETHER. WE’RE THE BEST OF FRIENDS BECAUSE WE GO THROUGH THE UPS AND DOWNS TOGETHER.

 

They walked down the aisle a few years ago and Mercy said;

THE VOWS, I WAS A BIT NUMB. I WAS SHAKING. I USED TO SAY I’LL NEVER CRY … WATU WANALIANGA NINI… CAN’T YOU CONTAIN YOURSELF? I CRIED THE WHOLE TIME. I DON’T KNOW WHY I DID. I CAN’T TELL. I THINK IT IS SPIRITUAL.

Their marriage hasn’t been rosy and they’ve gone through up and downs.

OUR FIRST FIGHTS I DON’T REMEMBER BUT I RECALL THERE’S A TIME I PACKED AND I WAS GOING HOME AND THEN HE CAME AND TALKED TO ME.

Let your wife hen-peck you – Bahati’s advice to men for a happy marriage

BUT WHAT REALLY SHOCKED ME WAS NOW WE’RE MARRIED, I HAVE TO COOK, WHILE HE IS WATCHING TV. I WAS LIKE ‘AAIH IT’S TOO MUCH’ HE WANTS TO BE A KING. IT WAS VERY CHALLENGING FOR ME.

The Nikupendeze hitmaker was forced to undergo mentorship classes

I HAD PACKED THREE TIMES AND AFTER MENTORSHIP CLASS WITH REV KATHY KIUNA THAT’S WHEN I SETTLED.

I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND SUBMISSION, I WAS DEPRESSED ABOUT IT. FUNNY ENOUGH I WAS IN CHURCH AND DIDN’T FOLLOW WHAT SUBMISSION WAS AND WE WERE BEING TAUGHT WHAT TO DO. I WOULD SPEAK UP HOW I THINK WITH NO EDITING SO IT WAS CHALLENGING.

Things were tough during their first days of marriage.

DIDN’T WANT TO GET ANGRIER. WE HAD A BIG ISSUE BECAUSE I WOULD ARGUE WITH HER. I WOULD GET ANGRY BUT DIDN’T WANT TO GET ANGRIER BECAUSE I HAD VOWED TO GOD THAT I NEVER RAISE A FINGER TOWARDS MY WIFE. SO I WOULD STOP AND ASSUME IT NEVER HAPPENED WHICH I LEARNT LATER WAS SUICIDE – SLOW PUNCTURE. IF I HAD CONTINUED WITH THAT IT WOULD HAVE ERUPTED IN ON WAY OR ANOTHER I THANK GOD FOR BEING IN CHRIST BECAUSE WHEN SHE WENT FOR COUNSELING SHE ACTUALLY HELPED ME UNDERSTAND WHAT IT WAS.

The mother of two since then learnt to be submissive and life has been great.

See the day Anne Waiguru’s hubby saved a Kenyan man’s shaky marriage

She said,

SUBMISSION DOESN’T MAKE YOU LESS. I’VE ALSO LEARNT THAT I DON’T HAVE TO WIN EVERY BATTLE. WHEN THINGS BECOME WORSE I JUST PRAY AND IT WORKS MY WAY. MY FAITH HAS GROWN. I SEE THINGS WORK MORE WITH PRAYER AND BELIEVE IN GOD. IT [PRAYER] MAY TAKE TIME BUT I’VE SEEN GOD WORK THROUGH PRAYER.
