Gospel singer Justina Syokau, famous for her hit song ‘Twendy Twendy’, is appealing for financial help from Kenyans after she went broke following an illness. 

In a series of posts on Facebook, Justina said she fell ill at the beginning of 2021 after receiving a wrong medical prescription that resulted in skin disease. 

Opening up on her journey on YouTube, the singer said she went to hospital where she was diagnosed with dermatophytes, a common fungal infection of the hair, skin, and nails.


“I was broke, and I told my househelp to sell household items so we can raise funds. I sold my clothes and shoes to offset the hospital bill,” she added.

Failed marriage

In 2012, the Machakos-born singer walked down the aisle in a colourful wedding ceremony. Things went smoothly during their honeymoon, but her hopes were soon dashed.

According to Justina, her marriage took a downward spiral soon after the wedding, with accusations of physical and verbal abuse.

 Laying the blame squarely on her in-laws, whom they were living with, she accused them of making their marital life difficult.
