Mombasa based artiste Nyota Ndogo spent the night in the cold after being thrown out by her mzungu husband over disrespect.

Nyota had told her husband to wear a dera, a unisex cloth worn by people from the coastal region but he did not take it lightly.

‘I gave my husband a dera to wear, I told him that here in Africa a dera is worn by both men and women. I did not even know how I found myself outside. I did not even know that I could run this fast, but it is so cold outside I can’t deal with it. Let me go and try beg my husband from the window. I was only joking, maybe I should tag him so that you can help me beg him to let me into the house,’ Nyota Ndogo said.

Her post, written in Swahili read: “Nimempa mume wangu Dera avae nimemwambia huku africa tunatumia dera kulalia waume kwa wake hata sijui nimefika nje vipi sikujua naweza kua na mbio hivyo lakini hii baridi hapa nje ndio yanishinda ngoja nikabembeleze kwa dirisha ilikua matani tu sijui nimtag munisaidie niingie ndani.”

Nyota Ndogo

Just days ago, she posted something on her social media that left more question than answers saying even if she got dumped she would get married over and over again.

‘I cannot stay in a marriage that has no peace.

I cannot stay in a marriage where I am constantly getting trouble just to show people that I am OKay.

I Cannot stay in a marriage where I am being oppressed just because I have a husband who has money.

If I am dumped I will get married again and again and again and again. Even twenty times if need be.’

Adding,

‘Don’t be a person that constantly cries foul don’t mind being laughed at keep your happiness first.

At the end of the day I pray that God sustains my marriage for 100 years because I love this man.’

Nyota Ndogo

Her post continued, “Siwezi kukaa kwenye ndoa isiokua na Amani.siwezi kukaa kwenye ndoa ninayo pata tabu ili kuonyesha watu AM OK AND AM NOT.
