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, Justin Stated that she fell ill at the beginning of 2021 after receiving a wrong medical prescription that resulted in skin disease. 

The singer further stated that she went to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with dermatophytes, a common fungal infection of the hair, skin, and nails. However, her prescribed drugs did not work, forcing her to seek treatment from another hospital.

Despite her illness, Justina said some people broke her heart through the negative messages they wrote on social media. She added that some went as far as saying she was bewitched and advised her to apply pig's fat.

"Being a Christian, I did not take that route and instead went to a third hospital and was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis."

 The singer says she sold her clothes, shoes, and household items to cater to the expensive medication.

"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.
