Musician and producer Nixon Wesonga alias Visita adds to the list of celebrities who have been reduced to beggars after a flourishing career.
In a recent interview, Visita revealed that he is currently broke and homeless after being kicked out of his rental house for failing to pay rent.
The Mapepo hitmaker disclosed that he currently stays in a music recording studio belonging to one of his friends and that his belongings are on the verandah of the house he used to stay in.
He said that he had to sent his wife and children to the village because of the financials constraints.
“Mimi venye nilifungiwa Keja, I had to look for ways to talk to my wife for her to take our kids to the village maana watoto hawezi teseka Nairobi…” Visita opened up.
The artist said that he used to sleep on the verandah together with his family before his friend came to his rescue.
“Nilikuwa nadozz hapa(Verandah) na Msupa, tulikaa hapa na Msupa kama wiki moja… ndo nikabonga na DJ Lebbz akaniokolea place ya kukaa. So this is real, unajua sometimes watu wanachukulia ni jokes msee akiwa kwa ngori. This studio belongs to DJ Lebbz and Mutua and I appreciate them so much for always helping me,” Visita said.
According to Visita, radio presenter Mzazi Willy M. Tuva is partly to blame for his tribulations.
“I don’t like Tuva. He is pretender. I don’t like someone who calls me and tells me I’m the biggest producer in East and central Africa. Don’t tell me that if you don’t mean it. Then he went ahead and took my laughter and performance track akaenda aka register skiza. Nampigia Tuva the first thing I hear is my voice. I have called him severally ananizungusha tu, I don’t like Tuva but don’t have a problem with him. I don’t respect him. My experience with Tuva is just bad it’s not a good vibe. I had respected him so much,” he remarked.
He added that Tuva refused to play his Mapepo song on grounds that it was ‘dirty’.
“Tuva refused to play Mapepo ati video ni chafu but on the same same show anacheza ngoma ya Diamond ile ya nasema nawe watu wanashake alafu Mapepo hachezi. Siwezi sema nachukia Tuva, namdharau tu” said Visita.

He is however hopeful that he will come out of the financial turmoil while appealing for help from Kenyans.
“I have been looking for channels to lay out my challenges in vain. If there is someone out there who feels I should get out of this situation, I’ll appreciate it. I’m not embarrassed, such is life. God has a better plan and the fact that she is still with me, I know God has a huge plan,” he said.
