I tried to lose weight by exercising using a roller at only age 16, because I wanted to fit in. At one point, my legs became paralyzed.

I wanted to fit in – Singer, Evelyne Wanjiru narrates

Her quest caused her pain, misery and sent her lying on the hospital bed.

I used to read the Bible while in hospital but I still felt like my life had ended because I could not do anything for myself.

She cautioned, basing on her own experiences:

If you use the roller, the wrong way, it can kill your nerves. That is what happened to me, all my back nerves died. I had to undergo physiotherapy because I was ill for a year. It was a miracle [that I recovered]. That is why I did my song ´Waweza.´
