Truly, it was so vivid that she had fallen in love with him, without bearing in mind that there could be the other lady in the relationship. In fact, she disclosed that Rashid was her first love and that everything was running smoothly until he traveled abroad for further studies. Upon his return, Sheila realized Rashid Abdalla had changed, he was mean with his love for her.
Sheila explained her love for Rashid but had to let him go after she realized there was another woman in his life. Asked whether the experience is what made her do the song, “Niwe Wako Milele”, Sheila is quick to refute the assertion pointing out that the song is a true story of yet another story of love-gone-sour:
“Ehe heh! Io sasa Rashid ni ngumu!” starts Sheila Mwanyigha, adding, “Nilikua na mtu nilimpenda sana na alinipenda pia lakini vile alikua ananipenda si vile nilikua nataka anipende…kuilikua na mwingine.” Sheila goes to reveal that she sincerely loved the guy but there was another woman in his life.
In her words, “I was not the first choice,” adding, “Na ni maisha, you will not always be the first choice.” Rashid then wishes her well in finding ‘the one’ upon which she laughs it off and maintains that as long as she’s the first choice, she didn’t mind.
