“Watoto wangu wamekuwa very supportive. Then mume wangu pia amekuwa very supportive, na nataka niambie wanaume wote wa Kenya, nyinyi ni wa baraka kwetu lakini talanta nyingi ziko kaburini. Mimi talanta yangu hii munaniona nayo saa hii inatrend, ni mume wangu. Kwa sababu mume wangu angekuwa ananiona kama jangili hakuna mahali ningeenda. Lakini nikitoka nyumbani nikiwa na raha ndio unanipata naweza shout mbele ya watu bila stress,” she said.
