He revealed how the leaked video affected his life: “After that information nimeshindwa hata kutembea, kwani huwezi jitafutia, sasa itakuwa aje? Na siko vizuri ivo, mambo ni ngumu bana. (After that information leaked, I couldn’t even walk around freely because you can’t face people. So, how will things be now? And I’m not doing well, things are tough, man)”.

Mustafa then revealed that he has been working on a project that he cannot talk about but has kept him busy for the past year.

In 2022, he revealed he suffered from depression after leaving the popular reality show ‘Nairobi Diaries’.
