Vanessa Mdee shook many in the entertainment industry by surprise when she not only announced that she was quitting but also gave her reasons for it.
The singer stated that she was leaving an industry she had been for more than a decade because it was demonic and was very hypocritical.
Vanessa attested to the fact that she had even fallen into depression and become an alcoholic over the same. Barely a week after her revelation, the singer has been backed by her Kenyan counterpart Vivianne who came out to congratulate Vanessa on her resilient nature.
In a long Instagram post the musician who is married to Sam West started by praising Vanessa, saying;
This is an old pic of Vanessa Mdee and I.
Truth is she is a ball of fire and one of the best entertainers’ hands down. I saw some news about her in a blog and got to listen to one of her podcasts #deepdive.. I know for sure everyone has their own unique journey but as much as possible we have to be able to stand in solidarity when it comes to the truth.
She added that she agreed wholly with what Vanessa described in her years in the industry;
“I love to make music but the pressure and the hypocrisy will drive you into depression or substance abuse that’s for sure.. In my own capacity as Vivian the lack of truth and lack of love that is characteristic in our entertainment system is demonic. And I appreciate @vanessamdee very much for being vulnerable and honest about her journey.”
She finished off by urging other female musicians to stand together to help one another in the cut-throat business.
“And if nothing else gets heard I’d like to appeal, especially to my female counterparts in entertainment to extend grace to one another and be ambassadors of truth and love,” Vivianne wrote.
