Gengetone superstar Mejja has always opened up about feeling suicidal so as to help those having such thoughts.
For the first time, speaking in an interview with Mzazi Willy M Tuva on Mambo Mseto, the Landlord hitmaker, revealed that were it not for his mother’s phone call, he would have been dead by now.
‘ilikua ni God coz matha alinikol hio time. Nilikuwa na kisu kwa nyumba [read to stab himself] …unafeel tuu rage fulani yaani haufai. Mother ainipigia simu akaniuliza “Uko wapi?” nikaplay along mimi niko sawa but she insisted I tell her where I was. I opened up to her on my suicidal thoughts and she told me to go to where she was immediately,’ he said.
