Christina Shusho’s ex-husband hits back: It hurts, but…new level, new devil, new glory!

Pastor John Shusho has hit back at his estranged wife, celebrated Tanzanian gospel singer Christina Shusho, over her claims as to why she left their marriage.

A few days ago, Ms Shusho, who has become a darling of Kenyan audiences, claimed she decided to ask for a separation from her husband and father of their three children in order to fulfil God’s calling.

“Let me be frank, I have never lied and I don’t lie. The truth is that it’s a mission. There is nothing else. The mission that God has given me in this season cannot allow me to stay where I was. I had to leave to fulfil the assignment,” she said in an interview with Jerusalem Church TV.

The singer went on to say that her departure was amicable.

However, during a recent church crusade, Mr Shusho responded to his wife’s comments during a sermon, saying that he was and still is deeply hurt by his wife’s actions in leaving.

“Tell your neighbour that it hurts, but God has ordained it. He will always prepare you for what is to come tomorrow. To get to a new level, you have to go through some challenges to prepare you for what is to come. You can never win without entering a contest. New level, new devil, new glory. When you come to a new level, you will face certain challenges, but God will always prepare you to overcome them for the season to come,” Mr John said.

The preacher added, “Sometimes the preparation may not be what you expected or anticipated and because you never anticipated these new challenges, you will have to go through pain, you will be hurt but God always has a purpose for that pain. The pain is to mould you, to make you better than you were before”.

In recent years, Christina has been outspoken about her marriage, unlike her husband.

The gospel singer has openly stated that she regrets marrying young at the age of 19.

She has also criticised her husband’s family in the past, saying that when she married, she found herself serving not only her husband but also his eight other siblings, which made her question her marriage.
