Eunice Njeri: Medical condition drove me into my one-day marriage

By THOMAS MATIKO September 18th, 2018 1 min read

Gospel singer Eunice Njeri has opened up on her 24-hour marriage to gospel rapper Isaac Bukasa, alias Izzo, back in 2016.

Njeri claims that a medical condition forced her to hurriedly get married.

The two announced their engagement in September 19, 2016  via Instagram. Two months later, they invited friends and family for their wedding on November 27 at Neema Gospel Church in Texas where Izzo’s family lives.

Photos of the ceremony were shared online by those who attended.

The marriage however ended barely 24 hours after they had tied a knot, a shameful divorce that was wrapped in secrecy by friends and family.

Few months later, Njeri took to her Instagram to finally break the news on how the marriage ended on the day of the wedding. She explained that her heart was somewhere else (not in United States) and that place was Kenya.

She immediately left the States to return home.

Close to two years later, Njeri has explained why she decided to get married in the first place and what prompted her to end it on the day of their wedding .

“I wasn’t going with my heart at the time, also at the same time I was very sick. I had fibroids. Bleeding a lot and at the same time I thought I should get married. I was like maybe I should do this, why am I saying no? I have been saying no for 20 year maybe it’s time to say yes,” she narrated in a TV interview.

“And in that mix of being sick, being in the hospital and getting all these transfusions, I had a whole confusion time. Confusion made me rush into decisions I wouldn’t have made.”

The gospel singer underwent a successful surgery last year to remove the fibroids.
