The media has managed to be a hindrance in my life with the negative issues that continued to come out which contributed to a series of insults in my inbox and I ended up isolating myself. However, I ascribed to meditation and praying more which really helps a lot.
Mugwadi disclosed that she works with children interested in music though some parents do not want her to associate with their children as they tend to associate musicians with drug and substance abuse.
