Size 8 Opens Up on Battle With High Blood Pressure: ‘I Was Almost Giving Up’

Gospel singer Linet Munyali, alias Size 8 has opened up on her underlying medical condition that has troubled her for the last seven years. 

In a video on her YouTube channel, the mother of two disclosed that she has been battling high blood pressure since January 2015. 

Size 8 disclosed that her condition got worse to the point that she almost gave up after being in and out of hospital and on medication for a long time. 

“Since 2015 January I have had health issues and I never shared that side of my life. I remember I once collapsed in town and I was told my pressure was too high,” she said. 

“I have been on medication for a long time and I have been in and out of the hospital. This time it was serious as I was slipping into depression and I was almost giving up. I was tired of fighting and that is partly why I stopped putting up posts on social media.” 

The singer noted that God has kept her going despite the challenges that comes with the condition, further noting that her husband, DJ Mo has been instrumental in her battle with high blood pressure. 

“Were it not for God I would have given up completely. I was not okay physically and my heart was also giving up the fight. DJ Mo really encouraged me and he was tough on me. I really thank him for that,” Size 8 added.

This comes two weeks after Size 8 was admitted to a Nairobi hospital. 

Through her Instagram page, the singer shared a video which showed her struggling and in pain while receiving help from a doctor and an unknown lady.

The gospel singer’s team also asked for prayers from her fans.

“Size 8 reborn will not be having her lunch hour preaching today for she was admitted in hospital, please put her in your prayers and we pray to see her preaching online soon,” wrote Size 8’s team. 

Size 8’s sister, Mary Munyali further confirmed that the singer was admitted to hospital, noting that her blood pressure was high but the doctors were yet to establish what was ailing the singer.
