Jane Muthoni, a gospel singer, has shared the story of how she met her husband. The singer of the song “Materetha,” who got married in August 2019, revealed this in a Youtube interview.
She and her first spouse divorced because their differences were too great to be resolved.
‘It was not a good scenario for me. Before you agree with your mind and soul that this is what has happened, it is always a struggle. You are in dilemma over what you will tell the public.’
She added that after her marriage failed, she used to feel so awful and avoided the public, but now she mentors other couples whose marriages are successful.
‘It is hard to even explain yourself to all people but if you pray and accept that it has happened then you will win and come out strong again. When I came out I realised that people still loved me.’
Life as a single mother, according to Muthoni, was not easy as several married women began to avoid her, maybe out of concern that she might steal their husbands. Muthoni chose to remain single.
‘Some even stopped being my friends. My message is that no one wants to live single, it just happens under tough circumstances that we might not be in a position to prevent. I tried my best to save my marriage but it couldn’t work.’
She claimed that after finding healing and making the decision to move on, she asked to God for a new place to live.
‘It was my desire but He answered. God can use any means to give you what is yours. I met my husband in a funeral where I had gone to perform and I was even paid. I sang and when I sat down, I heard a voice from inside telling me, ‘your husband is here’ I was paid via Mpesa and I did not even know the guy. I disagreed so much with that voice. I left before the burial was over because the voice kept talking to me.’
She eventually married the man who had first invited her to perform.
After having a costly wedding in Kenya, she later moved to America.
‘He was not living in Kenya so we had to relocate. I am still singing and my advice to those who are looking for someone to love, is that their time will come but be sure to go out and meet people.’
