Rose Muhando Death Hoax: Tanzanian Top Gospel Singer Rumored Dead

Tanzanian top gospel singer, Rose Muhando has become a subject of Death hoax. Speaking of the 39-year-old single, it was revealed that she is into drug and may die anytime soon.

However, she has debunked the rumor, coming out to speak that she is alive and healthy. “I am very healthy and going about my life. Tanzanian media is determined to tarnish my name and I don’t know why. I have even been attending meetings and working on my comeback,” she said.

“I was suffering from a strange disease that caused my legs to swell for three months. I will bring evidence from the doctor for you to understand that I’m not 18,” She said revealing that she is fighting a strange illness, maybe this are part of the reason people are spreading rumor about her death.

Rose Muhando was born in 1976 in Dumila village, Kilosa District, Morogoro Region, Tanzania, where she also grew up. She was a devout Muslim and attended Madrasa, a Muslim religious studies centre after school.

Rose suffered from a mysterious disease at an early age which caused her to be bed-ridden for three years. During this period when she was nine, she claimed to have seen a vision of Jesus Christ while she was indisposed on her sick-bed. She was healed after that vision and converted to Christianity. Here’s what she had to say about her conversion to Christianity:

“People think that I have a good, smooth life; totally wrong. My life has been plagued by misfortunes from youth. Soon, this routine changed. A mysterious disease that left me bedridden for three years attacked me. My skin was peeling, and I had a gushing wound in my head that oozed smelly pus. My parents also took me to witchdoctors, but no luck there. Finally, they took me home and I lay on a bed awaiting my death. But one night, remembers Muhando, as her parents sat outside their grass­ thatched house, probably reflecting on their fate, a bright light engulfed their house. I saw a bright light. Then a hand clad in white, with a scar in the palm descended from the light and touched my wound. Then a soft voice, exuding authority said, “I am Jesus. I have healed you. Wake up and go serve me.” The light disappeared. Muhando says she ran to her parents shouting, “I am healed, I am healed”. They were astounded. For three years, I had not lifted myself from the bed.”

Rose Muhando started her music career as a choir teacher in Dodoma’s Saint Mary’s Choir for the Chimuli Anglican Church but was sacked by the church after declining their demands to record with the church choir.

She made it to the spotlight in 2003 and released her first album, Uwe Macho the next year, 2004. Her fame on the gospel music stage subsequently earned her the nickname, Queen Mother of Gospel Africa.

On January 31, 2005, Rose Muhando was awarded the best composer, best singer, and for the best album of the year during the 2004 Tanzania Gospel Music Award Concert. She also won the best female gospel artist in Africa at the Kenya Groove Awards in 2008.

In 2009, Rose Muhando won the Best Tanzanian Gospel Singer Award. Her song, “Nibebe” also earned her the Best Singer in Tanzania and was awarded Tsh200,000 by the Tanzania Broadcasting Corporation (TBC).

Later on, in February 2011, Rose Muhando signed a multi-album recording deal with Sony Music. The signing was announced on February 9 at a press conference in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The deal was first of its kind for the East African singer.

Unfortunately, Rose Muhando has lately been experiencing crises in her music career. The famous worshiper appears to have amassed a large number of enemies who started making her life and career miserable as her name started to be associated with all sorts of negative things ranging from alleged drug abuse and abortion, sexual harassment, death threats as well as fraud allegations.

On 6th April 2014, she made a narrow escape from being kidnapped from the KKT Church in Ushirika wa Magomeni where she was holding a performance. This was followed by claims that the singer has been in the habit of collecting advance payments for performances and at the end never show up for the gigs. She was also accused of aborting a seven-month-old pregnancy.
