Hawa Mayoka of “Nitarejea” hit song has been diagnosed with a heart problem, and not liver-related complications as earlier reports suggested, Diamond Platnumz’s manager Babu Tale has revealed.
Mr Tale accompanied Hawa to India, where she is currently undergoing treatment.
“I thank God we arrived safely in India. Several medical tests were done on Hawa, and doctors did not find any problem with her liver. They, however, say she has a heart problem, which requires a major surgical procedure to correct. I request you to continue praying for her. Also pray for Diamond Platnumz to have the will to continue funding Hawa’s medical bill,” said Mr Tale on social media Monday.
Earlier reports claimed Ms Mayoka was suffering from a liver-related disease due to excessive drinking.
Her earlier diagnosis was done in Tanzania, where she is a resident.
Musician Diamond Platnumz, who Hawa featured in the smash hit “Nitarejea” offered to foot her medical bill, which was initially estimated at Ksh2.5 million.
