Waka Queen, Salawa Abeni, has disclosed that she was sick for nearly a decade during which she sold her belongings and property and turned a beggar.
Salawa, who has recovered from the illness, and has gotten her groove back told The Sun about all low points in her life.
“When I faced challenges at Leader Records, Yes. Secondly, at Alhaji Rasaq Ayinla Kollington’s house I wanted to quit and again when I lost my son, Lanre, I got frustrated but I had to keep my head up and face life squarely. Again, when I was down with sickness I almost lost it.
“This sickness almost turned me into a beggar when I ran out of cash and valuable property before government came to my aid. Even some of my friends got tired but some didn’t give up. I thank God He stopped me from being a beggar and made me a giver,” the 56-year-old popular singer told the paper.
