Mark Masai Parents and Siblings

He was born in a Muslim family to Fatuma Abdullahi and an unknown father. However, his mother opted to give him up for adoption while he was still a baby to a British missionary woman, Mary Wright who was an English teacher.  Mary Wright raised Masai alongside his foster brother who much is not known about him.

As a junior, his foster mother advised him to join African Children’s Choir (ACC). This gave him an opportunity to tour the United State and experience a different environment performing in front of a huge audience. The experience gave him the confidence to stand in front of people a skill that would later help in his career.

Since he was born in a Muslim family he had to shift to Christianity as her foster mother was a Christian. He dropped the Muslim name and he decided to call himself Mark.

Mark met his biological mother later in life when he was already an adult.  Just like any other person it was not easy for him considering his mother gave him up for adoption. But with time he accepted the situation and even allowed her to pay for his last years in college.

After so many unanswered questions in his head, he decided to ask his mother the whereabouts of his biological father. However, her mother kept insisting it was not the right time.

His mother later told him he had given his father Mark’s contacts. His father contacted him while he was at work and he was out of words he had nothing to say to his dad considering he had never seen him since he was born.
