Curvy singer Desire Luzinda on Monday celebrated her forever 25th birthday with a strong message for her fans especially mothers. Desire will host White and Gold birthday on Saturday at Riders Lounge.
As a teenager mother, Desire said that didn’t end her life but talk her lessons. She encouraged all young mothers out there that a mistake once made cannot be reversed but you can turn it into the best decision of your life.
“It doesn’t matter how you toil, what matters is how you have raised your child and strive to give him/her a better brighter future than yours. The world will always judge you anyway,” Desire said. She was yesterday joined by her family and friends as she threw a lavish birthday party. Below is her full statement;
“Thank you all for the amazing birthday wishes. It was indeed a great day to celebrate yet another year to add on my “something ” years.
While some of you insult me, get offended and take it so personally at the mention of my ‘forever 25yrs’,to me it means that proud teenage mother who gave birth at 19(not that am proud of early pregnancy ),,but I chose motherhood over abortion! I was young and still pursuing my studies, an S6 candidate at that time! Having learnt of my-then mistake, I was terrified and words can’t explain how I was feeling then. ..
I thought of my mother who had toiled tirelessly to see her 7 children graduate and couldn’t stop wondering what I was to do. But for some reason, abortion never at any point in time cross my mind even in the deepest of fear.
Anyway, Fast forward, I knew the only way I could put a little smile on her face was by continuing with my studies. Imagine waking up everyday in an isolated environment where everyone looked at you as a misfit, no friends at all, every step you make you literally see eyes and words pierce through your skin. Yes!that is what the one year was like but I held my head high and made sure I sat for those exams, not just seating the papers but pass. It was the only choice I had to make it somewhat ok. As my baby grew, I prayed I did not have her before my exams and thank God I gave birth 2 weeks after my UACE.
I have lived with my daughter from the time she was born to date. She is my daughter, my best friend and I chose a mother-daughter friendship over anything else.
This is to encourage all young mothers out there, a mistake once made cannot be reversed but you can turn it into the best decision of your life. It doesn’t matter how you toil, what matters is how you have raised your child and strive to give him/her a better brighter future than yours. The world will always judge you anyway…”
