Singer bashed for ‘walking to save fare’ statement

Kenyan singer Vivian is on the receiving end after her latest interview with a local television station.

Trouble started for singer when she stated in the interview that she used to walk to save fare while she was starting her music career.

The singer and songwriter famed for the song Chingi changa stated that she used to walk from Nairobi West to Nyayo to save fare.

Social media users who are familiar with the distance between the two places then said that she was exaggerating her story, some saying that the distance between the two places was too short to use fare.

Some expressed their disappointments claiming that they have walked longer distances than she was talking about and it was not a big deal, while some likened other distances they had walked.

Here are their reactions;

@OmondiRampell Looks like the lady doesn't know what she's talking about. You don't save fare walking from Nairobi West to Nyayo; Nyayo Stadium and stage is within Nairobi West. Tell us something else
