Linet Munyali, popularly known as Size 8, has opened up about how money and fame caused her to lose true friendships.
The mother of Wambo revealed that in just three years, she was at the peak of her life after releasing hit songs that made her one of the biggest names in the music industry.
In a recent interview, she shared that she learned that money is not everything.
“Money is not everything because when I got money and fame, I lost true love, I lacked peace, people didn’t love me for who I was. I faced stress and started drinking alcohol at some point.”
“My true friends became jealous, and fake friends became even more jealous. I started drinking every day, and at one point, I found myself in the club alone in the morning.”
“That world is very lonely. Many people love me, but how many truly love me?”
However, Size 8 thought she wouldn’t succeed in the gospel music industry even when she was making a fresh start.
“I had started a business to store copies in case the music did not go well.”
Size 8’s significant challenge was her health. “I was struggling with ulcers and high blood pressure. At times, I used the lowest key. We go through things to discipline us.”
“I lost two children due to high blood pressure.”
From 2015 to 2023, Size 8 said she was in and out of the hospital but has now fully recovered.
