• I had a list for God. One week later we connected and one year later we got married.
Kenyan gospel artiste Mercy Masika has revealed that she is the one who asked her husband out on their first date.
This is because he had a character that made her curious to want to know more about him.
Speaking during an interview with Churchill, Masika shared:
''I met David at a wedding, I was singing and he was on the camera.
He liked how I sang and so he asked me to sing at his wedding when the time came for him to wed, so I gave him my number.
He looked like a serious person ambaye anajielewa.
He would send me motivational and spiritual messages every day at 4:00am.
Sometimes the messages would coincide with what I was going through and I became interested in knowing who David was, sikua namkumbuka vizuri.''
Mercy added that at some point she decided to go and pray for a husband as there were qualities she wanted in a man.
''In 2007 I went to Katoloni for a husband and I had a list with God,1 week later we connected and 1 year later we got married.
I am the one who asked him on our first date. I wanted to know him more. I wanted someone who will help me go further in terms of my purpose.
I knew he was the one on the first date we met. When he came home everyone liked him. I had introduced my mum to other boyfriends but it never worked out.''
'When David came into my life, there was clarity on the direction I wanted to take.
Marriage gives someone a sense of direction.''
