Everyone of us has a story to tell from our past, the struggles we had to go through to be where we are currently.
Singer Vivian has decided to share with her fans her past as a way of encouraging those going through some hard time.
Through facebook Vivian revealed the struggles she went through, surviving on less than 500 shillings a month with no good clothes among other struggles.
Vivian notes “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 adds
