Singer Vivian has revealed that her journey in the music industry did not really kick start as a smooth ride.
The singer who has never shied on narrating her life journey, recently revealed that influential men in the music industry took advantage of her at the beginning of her career.
Vivian was encouraging upcoming female artistes not to give up on their dream of making it in the industry.
“Many female acts give up before time! Please, kujeni kwa hii kona I need to tell you it’s not yet time to throw in that towel.. Bado masaa…Everyone who told you you’re not good enough will watch you living your best life. Mimi nilikuwa hawker; I have been physically and sexually taken advantage of by influential men in this business but here I am stronger than I ever thought I could be. Still pushing and staying grateful all the while!” she wrote
At one point Vivian also revealed that she was once a victim of physical abuse in the same industry.
“I watched Cashy speak about being abused physically and my heart goes out to her. I’m certain it has not happened to us in the same breath but I too have experienced physical abuse. Physical abuse was part of my welcoming party as a new female artiste from one influential and hurt male figure. I almost gave up pursuing music,” she said
