I SLEPT HUNGRY, I COULDN’T AFFORD CLOTHING AND MY HOUSE WAS EMPTY NARRATES VIVIAN
On International Day of the Girl Child singer Vivian narrated her struggles in the industry while her song was getting massive airplay. The singer stated that at one point she slept hungry and gospel singer DK Kwenye Beat came to her rescue.
“I have been trying to hide my history but I keep getting convicted to share. About 2 years ago before I released “Teren Teren” my life was a real struggle. I couldn’t afford good clothing worth public appearances. I vividly remember there is a concert I was invited to perform but the promoter refused me to get on stage due to my dressing. He said I was poorly dressed and my dressing looked Ghetto.
That broke my heart. At that time I used to earn 4,000 from my Karaoke gig, after deducting the rent, transport, I would survive on less than 500 for a whole month. Things were tough. I have to thank my friend Tamima who saw my suffering and donated some clothing.
Another friend I need to thank is DK Kwenye Beat for sharing his family food with me. Sometimes I slept hungry. Yes, I was a celebrity but sleeping hungry. My songs were playing everywhere but deep inside I was in agony. My room was empty, no seats. I sat on the floor.
I keep thanking God for everything I have now. Now I live in God’s abundance: a good big house, a good car and enough for my fill! His Grace is surely sufficient. For those who are going through tough times,” she said.Views: 1824
