A famous Tanzianian artistes’ manager and promoter Alex Msama has vowed to rehabilitate the career of gospel singer Rose Muhando who fell from grace to grass amid claims that she had conned several people.

Msama, who is hugely credited for gospel musician Muhando’s success before her downfall, says the talented singer has reformed.

During Muhando’s heyday, Msama pulled out all stops to ensure the singer staged shows regularly with venues filled to capacity.

She rose to become one of the most successful and sought-after gospel singers in the East African region because of her strong vocals and electrifying performances.

OUTCAST

She then started conning people and things went haywire. Today, Muhando is considered an outcast in Tanzania showbiz circus.

Promoters and event organizers have shunned her and no one is willing to spend money for a Muhando gig. The situation has left the once most sought-after gospel artiste desperate and miserable.

But Msama now claims that the musician has learnt her lessons.

“Rose alizidisha sana mambo yake ya utapeli ndiyo maana nikaacha kufanya naye kazi na tangu hapo amepotea kabisa kwenye ulimwengu wa Injili.  Ninamrudisha hivi karibuni tu, mashabiki wake wakae tu mkao wa kula maana ni mwimbaji mzuri sana anayejua kuimba,” Msama was quoted.

CONNING PEOPLE

Muhando has been fighting numerous cases of conning people money for not showing up in gigs already paid for.

Early this year, she started receiving death threats from her creditors, a situation that promoted her to want to relocate to Kenya for good.

There have also been unconfirmed rumours that she also got into drugs that has forced her sell her vehicles to finance the expensive lifestyle.
