Renowned Mugithi and Gengetone artist Peter Mwangi, popularly known as Miracle Baby, has undergone his fourth surgery in just a few years.

The former TV presenter underwent a successful surgery on Thursday evening at a Nairobi hospital in an effort to address his intestinal problem.

Online videos showed him in the hospital assuring friends and family that he would undergo the surgery successfully and come out.

"Praise the Lord. I must come out of this, right? We'll catch up later," Miracle Baby told the people accompanying him to the hospital before entering the operating room.

This was his fourth surgery in a few years. It comes just two and a half months after his third surgery. The singer has been battling intestinal problems.

In January, Katrue explained that the singer has had the condition since 2018.

"He has been suffering from stomach issues since 2018 when he underwent his first surgery. The doctors said they were removing a growth, they did a CT scan, said things were blocked, and performed surgery."

In May 2023, when the problem recurred, the couple returned to the same hospital and were asked to do an ultrasound.

"They couldn't see his appendix. Then we did a CT scan. It turned out another hospital had removed his appendix. We thought they had removed the growth instead. They also didn't return his organs properly."

"So they took out the appendix, so when he went in for surgery and didn't find the growth, I think they removed the appendix, so they reconnected him in 2023."

"So more often than not, his intestines would get severely blocked; we would take him to the hospital for an injection that would temporarily solve the problem and he would be discharged," she added.

"So when we went to the hospital on Sunday, we thought it was one thing, the family thought it was a simple and quick procedure. It wasn't.

We were sent for a CT scan, it was found that there was still a problem with his intestines. For two days, they tried using a tube and medication, but nothing worked. Last Wednesday, his stomach was swollen; he couldn't eat. He couldn't go to the bathroom," she continued.

"He underwent emergency surgery, and they found that his intestines had ruptured, and feces spilled into his abdomen."
