The couple both had children from their previous relationships before getting married.

She, at times, shares her experience of motherhood and how tough it is raising kids, especially if one is a child with special needs. She has been a good mother to her children.
Mary Lincoln Scandal
Martha Mwihaki Hinga, a popular Kenyan blogger, once told the public that she had a leaked sex tape of a well-known gospel musician. She, however, didn’t state the name of a musician whose raunchy video she claimed to have. This public statement got a lot of tongues wagging and netizens giving various opinions on who they thought the musician was.
The revelation of the leaked nudes caused a shake in Mary’s marriage to her husband, Njogu, the presenter.
A newspaper once shared that a source close to the couple claimed that Njogu threatened to take away the beautiful house and the cozy car he bought for his wife after hearing the shocking revelation trending on social media.
Mary Lincoln Kenya felt so embarrassed and ashamed of her act. Acknowledging that the claims circulating in the media were true. She became repentant and went to the Christian Foundation Fellowship to kneel before the church’s bishop, Bishop Michael Wanderi, to plead for forgiveness and take his prayers. She did so to save her marriage and also get a second chance from God to serve in His vineyard. She eventually shared her experience with the media, acknowledging that the claims shared were true and that she was repentant and had gone past that stage.
As a gospel musician, it’s always expected of the person to represent Christ appropriately and as much as flee away from anything that looks like sin, and because one is popular as an evangelist of Christ, the brethren in Christ would be focused on the artist’s lifestyle. But also, it’s in good fate that the general public understands that these gospel artists are humans and are likely to commit sins. When Mary was accused of sharing her private belongings with another man, it took a lot of courage to admit to her wrongs and a repentant heart to seek forgiveness from God and all she must have wronged. Mary did the exact things she was expected to do as a good Christian: admitting sin without pride and repenting that same sin. This act of hers is one that Christians must emulate in this Heavenly race. Staying humble and remembering that we are a work in progress and not yet saints. She has shown her fans exemplary actions of what an evangelist should be. It’s her fans’ hope and wishes that she genuinely turns a new leaf as she has claimed to have done, and she also prays for the grace not to return to any act of iniquity.
Overall, Mary Lincoln is a great musician and a very good hairstylist. She has been able to manage both careers properly thus far, and amid controversies, she has still stood out tall and strong. The people of Kenya wish her well in both of her careers.
