Esther Musila has been trolled a gazillion times for marrying gospel singer Guardian Angel who is younger than her.
However, the 53-year-old mother of three has no apologies for falling in love with her 35-year-old husband - something that seems to irritate haters to the core of their hearts.
On Wednesday, January 31, 2024, the quinquagenarian addressed age shamers after she attended the burial of a friend.
Musila noted with pain that her late friend was looking forward to joining her on the fifth floor but unfortunately, she died just a week before her 50th birthday.
"This morning I attended a funeral service of a friend of mine. Today would have been her 50th birthday. She was looking forward to this great milestone in her life, it didn't happen she passed away 7 days before today," Musila said.
The death of her friend who was looking forward to her 50th birthday made Esther Musila reckon that living longer is actually a gift from God.
The 53-year-old told age shamers that she will continue to age gracefully and unapologetically following the death of her late friend who died 7 days shy of her 50th birthday.
"When people insult you because of your age, do they ever think it is God who gives life not them? I will continue to age gracefully and unapologetically!!!!" Esther Musila stressed.
Seen, heard it all
While celebrating her 53rd birthday on May 25, 2023, Musila said that at her age she had seen and heard it all, adding that she was grateful for having stood up for herself and lived by her rules.
"53 years today, Esther Jeanette Ngenyi Musila was born as the 1st born child and only daughter to my parents. I had a most humble upbringing which has shaped and contributed to the person I am today. I have been through life, seen and heard it all!
"One thing am grateful for is that, I have always stood up for myself and lived by my rules. I know what is good for Esther and that is what I give her, the best for her. I have never shied away from living my life and living it unapologetically! I thrive on positivity and good vibes because I am intentional in what I feed my mind, body and soul," her statement read in part.
The 53-year-old further stressed that she was very proud of her age, adding that she would embrace her days on earth living like it was her last.
"I carry my age with grace and honor because I know God has enabled me to be on his wake up list every single morning of my 53 years on this earth so I will keep embracing my days and living each day like it's my last.
"To my family and my true friends who are part of my life each and every day, I thank you for your love. To me Esther, keep winning, living, loving and laughing. You are simply the BEST! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME💞💞💞," she wrote.
Guardian Angel has equally on multiple occasions expressed his undying love for Esther Musila even as critics castigate their union.
