Award-winning praise and worship singer Mercy Masika says her delayed salon appointment at Dusit D2 hotel complex was a blessing in disguise.
Mercy Masika would have been at the 14 Riverside Drive complex during a terrorist attack had her vehicle not been temporarily blocked by Jalang’o.
As the story goes, the gospel singer was scheduled for a 3:30 pm salon appointment but as fate would have it, Jalang’o double-parked his vehicle, blocking Mercy Masika’s car.
According to Jalang’o, Mercy Masika left in a rush but less than 20 minutes later, news broke out that Alshabaab militants had stormed the complex. This forced Mercy Masika to cancel her appointment.
Speaking in an interview with Kiss FM, Masika said that she felt like it was God who protected her.
“I’m grateful. It looked like a delay but it was a blessing. And also the people in the salon were ok, so it’s really a good thing. It was more like hurry up but then there were a lot of people to socialize with hapo. Of course, I was feeling the delay but then I was kinda chatting with people. Later I was like haiya we delayed there, but we felt like it was God who protected us,” she said.
Mercy Masika added: “We pray for comfort especially for those who’ve lost family members. It’s really painful and we pray that God will comfort them.”
