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.
The Kanairo dating rapper spoke to a local media house a fortnight ago where he revealed that his condition was worsening when he saw blood spots while clearing his throat as he brushed his teeth.
“Si ile kufanya ehe nataka kutafuta kama kikohozi nitoe nilikuwa naona spots za damu yani sasa hiyo ndio time nilijua kuna issue” said Mejja
Appeals For Prayers
The burly rapper appealed to fans to intercede in prayers as he looks forward to regaining his voice.He added that the condition had since affected him psychologically as he can’t contemplate bidding farewell to music.
“Nasema tu waniombee yani kwanza sabu unajua inani affect psychologically unajua mara ile leo una sauti kesho siwezi ongea inanisumbua sana kwa sababu hauwezi taka ati ivo ndio uliwachanga mziki” He explained
His business rapport has also been affected due to the many calls he has had to turn down with many terming him ‘big headed’
“Napataga simu mingi yani mtu anakupigia simu unamwambia niko na projects mingi mtu ana kutukana” stated Mejja.
Lost Voice In Australia
With a tight diary consisting of domestic and international show’s, Mejja complained of losing his voice while on a performance tour in Adelaide Australia where he lost his voice.
At first he was on medication and had some voice rest but his condition deteriorated leading to a flopped performance to which he apologized with a video while speaking with a raspy voice.
“Vile nilikam Sydney nilienda hosi nikapigwa sindano nikachukua madawa nika restisha voice lakini ikakataa kurudi but nimepiga show nkiwa hivi but najua kama sija satisfy vile inafaa naelewa,kama nimekubamba pia naelewa nataka tu kusema yani asante yani manze nimeskia vibaya vile sauti yangu imeenda yaani nataka ku apologize sana…but anyway next time inshallah manze hao wasee wengine wa Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane asante kwa kukam thru, Adelaide hii sauti ilipotelea Adelaide,” stated Mejja partly.

Mejja’s current state is a result of partaking sugary foodstuffs and not drinking large amounts of water.
Now Okwonkwo has no choice but to heed his doctor’s advice before we can continue enjoying his music.
Avoiding alcohol is one of the ways in voice healing as booze is an irritant that drys out the throat,and with Okwonkwo who’s synonymous with his ‘tumbler’ it’s time he ditches the bottle just like Kushman Pedi Wa Magenge sang “Naacha pombe till further notice”
We wish Mejja a quick recovery.
