“I was admitted here last week and doctors found out I had very low blood levels. I am currently undergoing numerous blood transfusion sessions to keep me strong,” she said.
Speaking in an audio-recorded interview, the singer was appalled that some people had spread rumours claiming she was dead.
“I am not dead. I was rushed here by my family when my condition worsened. I am currently being transfused with blood. It has never been clear what I am suffering from but the condition has worsened in recent days,” she said.
The optimistic artiste said despite being unsure what she was ailing from, she was optimistic she will heal and take care of her children who are currently living in deplorable condition.

Maureen who was in the company of her mother at the hospital said medical bills had drained her family’s resources and appealed for support from well-wishers.
“It pains me to see my children leaving a difficult life due to financial constraints. We exhausted all we had paying hospital bills. It is more painful that I cannot do much to help them because of this illness,” she painfully narrated.
The singer further narrated how the illness and financial challenges had made friends who enjoyed good times with her disappearance.

“Most of the people who used to be my friends are nowhere to be seen. I am just left with my mother and family. Some of them are behind the sad rumours that I am no more,” she said.
She ,however, thanked political leaders and few friends who have supported her before and promised she would repay that with good deeds when she gets well.
“When I finally get out of the sick bed I will help needy people because I have learnt what it means for someone to stand by you in time of need. I hope to churn out more hit songs then,” she added.
