Celebrated gospel musician Mercy Masika has told married women to learn to submit to their husbands.
The award-winning singer pointed out that this is what has been missing among many young couples, leading to increased marriage breakups.
Noting that submission was not a sign of lowering oneself, Masika explained that men must be recognised as the heads for any union to thrive.
The Mwema hitmaker explained that what she is calling for is an expression of respect for the man of the house.
“When a wife submits to her husband she is demonstrating respect for him. This brings contentment to the couple and the marriage,” she wrote on Instagram.
The hashtag: “God made marriage to last“, crowned the marriage-saving message.
Married for 12 years, the four-time Groove Awards winner credits her success to her husband, David Muguro.
Just last month, the artiste left her online followers elated after sharing a photo of her better half undoing her hair.
“I just saw this picture my daughter took some time ago and I thought…well this is romantic. It’s not those hot pictures couples take for Instagram, but these small things he does mean a lot to me,” she captioned it.
Muguro, she added, goes out of his way to make her and their two children happy. Masika prayed to God to sustain her family.
The singer, who rose to fame about nine years ago with her debut single, Amukomete, met her hubby, a videographer and businessman, at a wedding in 2007.
They exchanged contacts and started their courtship. The lovebirds wedded a year later at Lenana Boys High School in Nairobi.
The adorable couple have two children, a daughter and a son.
