Happy Mother's Day!
Singer Arrow Bwoy says the World is nothing without mothers. Speaking to this writer, the 'Radio Love' hitmaker said mother's as life.
"Mother's day is everything to me. If it was not because of my mother I wouldn't be here. Mother's day is life," he said
"To my mother and all the mothers out there, you are amazing without you, there is no world, let everyone respect women. After Mungu ni Mama, baba alafu wengine."
He described the mother of his child and his fiancée Nadia Mukami as an angel.
"We are celebrating all the mothers. I got a kid with the most awesome mum. Thank you for giving me that gift, I love you soo much."
Adding "She is amazing, she's the best mother, she is hands on, thank you so much, I love you."
To celebrate the day, he and Mukami will be visiting teen mums in Marurui, Kiambu road.
"We want to celebrate with them in conjunction with Lola and Safari Foundation. We want to encourage them, eat together and come with ideas to change their future."
He went on to say that his own mother is a pillar to him
"She has supported my career and she's a gift that I will keep treasuring. Growing up, I remember she used to dance Lingala, she is not boring an she's so social."
"She's the best example I can emulate. She would serve food and tell me not to look at another person's plate, concentrate on your plate, otherwise you'll think the other person has more meat, so I focus on my career, whether good or bad, I don't blame others."
He spoke this at the Tusker Nexster Fest held in Eldoret over the weekend. Arrow Bwoy was the headliner of the event alongside Sol Generation's Ben Sol.
