New mum in town Nadia Mukami not ready to sacrifice career for motherhood
Singer Nadia Mukami says she is not ready to give up on her successful career just to stay home and play mummy/wifey because society expects this from her.
Well, times have changed and so have women which explains Nadia Mukami’s reasons for not wanting to step down from her musical thrown – just to settle as a mum.
The lady made this known in a new post shared on her gram talking about a new YouTube series based on her pregnancy journey. From what she says is that she refuses to let society push her to becoming something she is not; that is judging from what she seen from female celebrities in the Kenyan music industry.
When you are a female artist, society feels the need to make personal choices on when you need to settle down.
Gender equality still a problem
According to Nadia Mukami, having a child or settling down with man should not be a reason for any woman to quit her career or business. For this reason, Nadia Mukami promised she would not be anything near the likes of Avril, Amani, Marya, Sosuun among others who quit music after starting a family with their spouses.
As woman I want both the career, family & kids. A woman shouldn’t have to choose one, she can have both.I am breaking barriers. No dream should die for the sake of gender.
But apart from that, Nadia says that more than ever – she now appreciates pregnancy or rather the art of motherhood since it’s one of the scariest but at the same bravest experience she has ever had.
Pregnancy is the closest i’ll ever come to magic, the scariest; and bravest experience and a privilege I will cherish forever. #AfricanPopStar
