Mejja Asks Fans To Pray For Him As He Battles Fatal Throat Illness

High-flying Kenyan genge star Mejja Okwonkwo fondly referred to as Mtoto wa Khadija has been missing in action for sometime now due to a throat complication.

Speaking to Mseto East Africa, Mejja has asked his fans to pray for him after the doctor directed him to take a break from music due to throat issues.

In 2022, Mejja cancelled one of his shows in Australia due to loss of voice.

“I have been having issues with my throat, When I was in Australia I had a flu and couldn’t get access to medicine and I was performing almost everyday. When I came back the pain was on and off even after taking over-the-counter drugs.”

The Genge music star also mentioned that he continues to record low-pitched songs using his voice, and yesterday, he did a song with Jay Melody, a rising star from Tanzania, who recently had a show in Kenya.

“Please say a prayer for me, sitaki kuacha muziki, and keep in mind to stay hydrated and steer clear of sugary foods to keep yourself out of this situation,” he advises.
