Former music star Majirani is depressed.
The Tukumbekeko hitmaker, who moved to Eldoret a few years ago to venture into sports, is crying out for help.
The artist has been bankrolling his team Majirani Football club on his own and he has revealed that last year he ran out of cash. In the audio that has touched many, the cash strapped Majirani narrates his life tribulations.
Last year things started going wrong. I even called for a Harambee (fundraiser) and many didn’t show up. Most of those who came never contributed. Out of 200 printed cars only five were returned. After the event flopped last week, things took the worst turn. I couldn’t afford to pay rent amounting to Ksh30,000 for three months. On Wednesday last week, the landlord came with policemen and they evicted me. I tried to talk to several friends to accommodate me but they didn’t let me in. I gave up and went on to sleep inside a house that’s still under construction. I didn’t mind about eating, all I needed was a roof under me because I had no money,’ he said.
On Sunday, one of my friends sent me 500 bob and I traveled to Western Kenya to meet a friend who’s currently hosting me. I can’t go back to Eldoret because I have no means, no cash for upkeep, the house is locked. I have accepted that my life has turned for the worst, I can’t pretend all is well when it’s not.
Majirani is currently living in a grass thatched house with a friend and he said he was open to any job.
I’ve lost weight and I don’t regret starting a Football team, that has helped many. Only God can repay me. All i need is money for rent so that the landlord can give me back my things which are still in the house. I’m considering to move to a bedsitter which costs less than Shs5,000 so as to start afresh from nothing. If anyone connects me to any job I’ll appreciate it,’ he explained.
In a series of posts on his WhatsApp stories, Majirani begs for prayers, hoping someone will rescue him before he sinks deeper into depression.
Pray for me when you get time. Take a step back from your schedule, check on your friends. Depression is real. If I ever get out of this my life will be a completely new one,’ he wrote.
You will never truly understand something until it actually happens to you.
The artiste just like many, has been receiving very little from MCSK and he regrets spending late nights in studio.
I hate music. I hate all the long nights I spent recording.
