Gospel singer Mr Seed says his wife Nimo paid his rent when his house was locked.

Speaking to Kiss FM's Jalango and Kamene, Mr Seed said he was broke at the time.

"There is this time we had gone for a picnic in Arboretum. The entrance fee was Sh100, and I did not even have the cash, let alone fare, to go back home," he said.

"I was not used to picnic dates, snacks and all that. After the date, I went home to find the landlord had locked my house with three huge padlocks. I could not go in."

To redeem the situation, Mr Seed pretended he lost his house keys.

"I had to act like I lost my keys at the picnic site. Nimo had Sh9,000 with her. She chucked it out without hesitation and paid," he said.

"Later she asked me why I did not just tell her the truth. Since that day, I saw the importance of opening up."

Appreciating his wife, Mr Seed said when he met Nimo, he had lost hope in his music career.

"She is one person who stood by me through thick and thin. I also had self-esteem issues and I would lock myself up in the house for days.

"She would come and push me to do more and ignore what people are saying."

The couple is raising a son together.
