Size 8 exposes fake celebrity lifestyles on social media

Gospel sensation Linet Munyali, alias Size 8, has taken a bold stance against the prevalence of fake lifestyles exhibited by many celebrities on social media platforms.

The “Mateke” hitmaker shared with Citizen TV the deceptive practices of individuals posting pictures of other people’s cars, pretending they belong to them.

“Social media is full of fake life. You see people bragging and posting a flashy lifestyle, but that is not real. Some even just take photos on people’s cars and then go on social media and caption it, ‘2024 winning’. If you are not careful, you end up doubting God, yet that is not their real life,” Size 8 remarked.

The gospel singer emphasised that while not everyone on social media is fake, a significant number of celebrities project a misleading image.

She shared her own experience, revealing that the prevalence of such deceptive practices played a role in her decision to give her life to Jesus.

“When I released my first gospel song, I thought it was not going to trend, so I even had a plan B of opening a business. Glory to God that the song became a hit, and everyone knew that I was now a gospel singer,” Size 8 reflected.

The gospel artist went on to describe the challenges she faced after transitioning to a gospel career.

Balancing singing and preaching became difficult, leading her to take a hiatus from the industry.

Size 8 candidly admitted to falling sick during this period and decided to prioritise serving God over her music career.

“The trials I went through in 2016 have made me stronger in my salvation journey,” she shared.

She revealed that she parted ways with friends upon embracing her faith.

“As I got saved, my true friends became envious, and those who were not genuine became even more jealous. I found myself turning to drink daily, and there were moments when I would end up alone in the club in the early morning hours,” Size 8 shared.

She acknowledged that had she not changed her ways, she might have veered towards a dangerous path.

“The environment I was in was incredibly isolating. If I hadn’t taken a different path, I could have easily ended up struggling with substance abuse or even tried suicide,” Size 8 confessed.
