She told Rashid she truly loved the guy but had to let him loose 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.

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 doesn’t mind. ‘Swali Moja’ is a segment on Taarifa Za Magharib at 6:30 PM every weekday on QTV and at 6:30 AM on QFM brought to you by Rashid Abdalla then.
