Former Tusker Project Fame contestant Peter Msechu is on an ambitious mission to lose over 100 kgs as advised by doctors.
Msechu, who came second in season 4 of music talent search show Tusker Project Fame in 2010, has heaped on an astonishing amount of weight in the last couple of years.
In an interview on Mikito Nusunusu, the talented singer disclosed that he weighed as much as 184 kgs, raising serious health concerns. In fact, Msechu had to stop doing music to concentrate on losing weight.
“Ni kweli nipo kimya kwa maana kwenye gemu kwa sasa ninanusa nusa tu tofauti na ilivyokuwa zamani. Nafanya hivi kwa sababu sasa ninahudumia afya yangu. Unajua nilikuwa nimejiachia sana kiasi kwamba nikawa nimefikisha uzito wa kilo 184 jambo ambalo lilikuwa ni hatari sana kwangu,” said Msechu.
“Niliamua kwenda hospitali kwa ajili ya kufanya vipimo. Baada ya kufanyiwa uchunguzi niliambiwa tatizo ni uzito maana nina kilo nyingi pamoja na mafuta ambayo ilikuwa imefika hatua yamezunguka moyo. Nikaambiwa kwa hali ilivyokuwa inakwenda, muda wowote ningezimika tu ghafla kama nisipochukua jitihada za dhati za kupunguza mafuta,” Msechu narrated.
The singer added that he has resolved to lose about 104 kilos and get to 80 kilos as recommended by doctors. So far, he has lost 20 kilos over a period of five months.
