In a post she shared on social media, the Charm singer disclosed that she was a hawker before she became a musician and a lot of things happened before the made a name for herself.

She went on to say that she was physically and sexually taken advantage of by men who call the shots in the Kenyan entertainment industry.

Ms Vivian added that she still fought her way up and she has not stopped, as she called on other women trying to make it in the music business not to give up.

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! And thanking God for my special man @samwestke. He surely is my rock. Kwa hivyo kila mtu ashikilie kabisa… Your future is brighter than you could ever know!” she wrote.

Dating Jaguar

This comes a few days after she also addressed claims that she had a romantic relationship with singer turned politician Jaguar.

Vivian said that she never dated the Starehe MP and everything said was only rumours.

This is me alongside Mhesh Charles Njagua as many of you may know him. This picture was taken about 5 yrs ago on set for one of my best singles #womaninlove . He was more @jaguarkenya then. He had come to show his support on set and my long standing producer @philipmakanda took this picture of us. There were many rumors of us dating but nope that’s never happened hehehe,” read her post.
