Nyota Ndogo on Tuesday made a quick Sh20,000 in less than three minutes after a man paid her to sing for his girlfriend.
As the story goes, the ‘Subira Yangu’ singer received a text message of the Mpesa cash transaction at 5.30 am when she was preparing her children to go to school.
Thinking it was money sent to a wrong number, the Coast-based singer soon after received a call from the sender requesting her to serenade his girlfriend with a happy birthday song.
“In my whole life, I have never been paid to sing over the phone. It was a surprising request. At first I thought the Mpesa message was sent to my phone by mistake. As I was jotting down his number so I can call him back, he called and made the request,” Nyota said.
While the Sh 20,000 was a sweet bonus, it was the man’s act of love that impressed Nyota Ndogo and moved her to tears.
“Nimetumiwa 20,000 hasubui nikasema nani huyu kakosea number? Saa kumi na moja hasubui.mara hio number ikapiga nikapokea.jamaa akauliza is this nyota ndogo? Nikasema yes.plz nimekutumia 20,000 plz nakupa no mpigie girl friend yangu muimbie happy birthday anakupenda kweli mwambie nampenda sana na hio 20,000 kunywa soda nimekulipa mpigie saizi.wow machozi yamenidondoka sio kwa hela japo hela nazo tamu but kwa mapenzi ya kweli kwa mrembo wake.yani machozi ya furaha kumbe kuna watu bado wanajua kupenda?
