‘Nilipigwa kipigo cha mbwa,’ How Rose Muhando bled after torture

Gospel singer Rose Muhando has spoken about her journey to freedom after being held hostage for years.

Muhando says she was under a person who was a church elder but not a genuine person.

Speaking to Wasafi Media on Sunday, the ‘Nibebe’ hitmaker said she could not meet anyone.

“I didn’t have a voice to go and report. The one who had held me hostage couldn’t let me speak to anyone,” she said.

“For me to have this freedom, it cost me my own blood. The last days, I said I was ready to die. I told the person to do whatever they wanted to do to me.”

The emotional singer added,

“It reached a point I wasn’t eating, I didn’t even like where I was living at. I cannot say the kind of torture I got and why they did that.”

Since her debut album in 2004, ‘Mteule Uwe Macho’, Muhando says she has been going through challenges and that she would get on stage and perform a few minutes after crying because of the pain.

The singer recalled her experience in 2010, when she was rehearsing for her album ‘Utamu Wa Yesu’.

“I was beaten up, my blood was flowing all over. The producers who were there witnessed everything. I went through a lot of challenges,” she said.

“I was being beaten while my kids watched.”

Muhando says the torture started when both her parents died. She recalled another horrifying experience with the church elder and two of his friends.

“I was beaten and told to kneel down. They put a gun on my head, asking for TSh15 million. They told me to say my last prayers and I started praying. It was raining. It was at a forest. They warned me against reporting and told me they would kill me if I did,” she said.

“There was a man who was looking after his flock and when he saw, he screamed and the three guys ran away.”

She denied the drug-related rumours. “People spoke a lot, they said I was taking drugs. I wondered because I don’t even know how drugs look like, what colour they are, even my doctor was very surprised because those rumours really went viral.”

She thanked Kenyan gospel artistes who came to her rescue.

“I was depressed. I stayed at the hospital for five months. Kenyans helped me pay hospital bills and gospel singers made sure I got treated.”

Ugandan singer went berserk during a stage performance in South Sudan after a fan assaulted her sexually.

Fans were singing along to her song when a man on the front stretched out his hand to touch Vinka’s private parts.

An agitated Vinka acted promptly by kicking the fan twice with her feet before a cameraperson on stage held her.

The musician then went on with her performance as security personnel handled the ill-mannered man.

Veronica Luggya alias Vinka embarked on her first music tour in South Sudan after a year’s break from music to attend to her baby.

Female artists have fallen victim to sexual harassment on stage from male fans who want to satisfy their sexual desires in the wrong manner.

This behavior should not be tolerated because when an artist takes to the stage, they are up to entertaining fans. Their body should not be the focus, rather their music.

Fans have shown aggressiveness by not only physical touch but also making sexual comments on the singers.

After her performance at the One Africa Music Festival in 2018, Musician Akothee was subjected to cyberbullying and sexual harassment over her dress code.

Her choice of costume and dance moves during her performance at London’s Wembley stadium sparked criticism from fans.

However, the mother of five downplayed the mean comments, asking the trolls to unfollow her since she doesn’t intend to be a role model.

Netflix has announced their plans for a Bridgerton spin-off which will focus on a young Queen Charlotte.

The upcoming series will focus on her love life and will be executive produced and written by none other than Shonda Rhimes.

Queen Charlotte – played by Golda Rosheuvel – stole the show during the eight episodes of drama released last December.

And now, fans will get to see the rise of the Queen as well as get a look at young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury.

“Many viewers had never known the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I’m thrilled this new series will further expand her story and the world of Bridgerton,” explained Netflix’s Bela Bajaria in a statement.

“Shonda and her team are thoughtfully building out the Bridgerton universe so they can keep delivering for the fans with the same quality and style they love.”

She continued: “And by planning and prepping all the upcoming seasons now, we also hope to keep up a pace that will keep even the most insatiable viewers totally fulfilled.”

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that the hit show was renewed for a season three and four.

Netflix announced the good news on Twitter last month, stating: “Breaking news from the ton! Bridgerton is returning for seasons three *AND* four!”

Producer Shonda Rhimes revealed: “From the first time I read Julia Quinn’s delicious Bridgerton series, I knew these were stories that would captivate a viewing audience.

“But the evolution of this adaptation would not be a success without the many significant contributions of the entire Shondaland team.”
