Kenyan rapper Mejja also known as Okwonko has talked about his life growing up with a single mother.

Unfortunately she got a brain tumor.

Speaking during an interview with Jalango, Mejja revealed that he is a lone ranger but not by choice as he has no relatives.

‘I grew up in Majengo, Nyeri with my mum who was a single mother.

She was the breadwinner until she got a brain tumour.

It was devastating as she was our stability.

My mum was brought up in a children’s home.

My grandmother brought her up but when she died my mum was thrown out after they claimed she was not their ‘daughter.’

Mejja added,

‘I have no known relatives it’s only now that am married that I can claim my wife’s family as mine.

This really affects me when it’s the holiday season and everyone is going home to see their loved ones and I have no one to go to.

The people I meet are my family.

I started hustling and trying to do music after my mum got sick.’

If you have a family, don’t take them for granted there are people who would do anything to have a family.
