Sofia Muhia is also known as Maria for her role as Mother-in-law has asked Kenyans to lend helping hands to artists as they have been hit hard by Covid-19.
According to the mother of three, having been out of a job for the last year, things have been hard on her and other artists and they are already feeling the strain.
Speaking during an interview with Hiram Maina, Maria narrated,
‘LIFE HAS BEEN HARD BECAUSE AS AN ARTIST I CANT GO TO PERFOM TO MC EVENTS, I ALSO CANNOT BE A CAKE MATRON LIKE I DO.
I CAN NO LONGER GO AND TALK TO STUDENTS. I WAS IN THE HOUSE FOR 1 YEAR.
WE WERE TO GO BACK TO WORK BUT NOW THE NEW WAVE HAS COME PRODUCTIONS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED. WE ARE BLEEDING INSIDE.
FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING TO BRING MY KIDS UP AND NOW FOR THE LAST YEAR WE HAVE BEEN CRIPPLED.
IT’S BEEN BAD ALL THE CHANNELS THAT BRING ME INCOME HAVE BEEN BLOCKED.
She further added,
AS CELEBRITIES WE ARE ALMOST SLEEPING WITHOUT FOOD. I NO LONGER GET SLEEP AS I KEEP WONDERING WHAT MOVE I CAN MAKE NEXT.
THINGS HAVE CHANGED. PEOPLE ASSUME WE ARE CELEBRITIES AND WE HAVE A LOT OF MONEY.
PEOPLE ARE SUFFEREING AND ARE KEEPING QUIET.
Hoping things go back to normal soon so that Maria and the rest can get back to acting and entertaining social gatherings.
