Mercy Masika: This is why my husband and I have a joint bank account

Popular gospel singer Mercy Masika has revealed the rather odd reason why she and her husband, David Muguro, share a bank account.

Speaking to Standard newspaper, the Mwema singer said that if she was the one managing her finances she would probably buy shoes with all her money.

“We have a joint bank account though he’s in charge of our money. If I managed our money, I would probably spend it all on shoes and clothes,” she said.


The two met in 2007 after the singer was invited to perform at an event shortly after finishing her university studies. She was performing at a wedding reception while David was the videographer at the same event.

The rest, as they say, is history with the couple getting married in 2008 after a year of courtship. The couple have two lovely children with Mr Muguro also doubling up as Masika’s manager in their music business.
