"Anxiety, sleepless nights.." DJ Pierra Makena describes how it feels to be away from her daughter

DJ Pierra Makena flew into the country this month and had to go on a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine before interacting with their loved ones.

14 days might sound like something easy to do until you actually go through them, each day at a time.

Known for her prowess in the male-dominated deejaying art, Ms Makena is also a mother to a young daughter.

The two share a bond that stands the test of time and few hours spent away from each other is like torture for them.


It was just day 3-4 of her self-quarantine and it seemed like eternity for the disk jockey.

The anxiety is not cool.
Yesternight i didn’t sleep a wink. Was getting really anxious.. just waiting to feel any symptoms and sometimes feeling almost all of them only in the mind.

So she decided to engage her online fans in an InstaLive session to probably calm her mind and it sure worked for the better.

My day 5….not sooo bad..i think the fact that i was live online interacting with people made it easy to deal.
Getting there a day at a time… πŸ™πŸ™

Day 6 went pretty smooth but day 7 worked on her nerves. All the celebrity DJ could say was:

God give me peace..

As time went by, day 8 clocked in and she decided to get some fresh air, stepping out of the four walls and chilling at her balcony.

DAY 8 today
I dressed up and went out to my balcony for brunch.

“Lately my spirit has been telling me to lay low and be patient” the female DJ admitted, promising to take each day as it comes.

Day 9, the DJ engaged her mind in what she does best – spinning the disk – challenging fans to throw any music genre her way and she would smash it.

Been keeping busy in my house……working on my set up to do a live party!!! Ya’ll ready? What Genre do you think i should play?? Try me?

However, her mind could not just keep off her young daughter who felt so far, yet so near.

DJ Pierra opened up that all these days away from her daughter tore her apart the more.

But with family by her side, it feels closer home for her.

If you know me…you will know how much i love my baby.
Being separated has been one of my worst nightmares.
I get anxious..i get sleepless nights….but i thank God for my family who are extremely supportive and assuring me everyday that all will be ok. 5 more days to go……

It now strikes 10 days since the disk jockey started her self-quarantine routine and she is over the moon because there is now light at the end of the tunnel.

4 more days my baby!! 4 more days!! πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³


Wah we need our lives back. I think we have a lot to learn from this.
I will be a changed person.
