Vivian was recently interviewed by Mpasho.co.ke, where she spoke on her experiences as a female secular musician in Kenya and the crazy expectations that come with it.

She started of by saying;

 "More like personal struggles, self-rejection, identity crises. As a female artist the package comes in, the shorter the short, the tighter the boots, the smaller the crop-top. Date the right person. Date someone who will connect you. Meet so and so. It has a lot to do with seeking externally and waiting for people to validate you so that you fit in. And it doesn't work."

She also complained that people in the industry try to romantically hook up the female artists with top dogs in the political scene;

"Even the person advising you doesn't know what they are supposed to be doing. Generally, I have really passed through so much. Like people try to pimp you out to politicians because you are pretty. All kinds of absurdities. Those are lies."

She urged young girls to be confident in their own abilities and be their genuine selves;

"Whoever you are supposed to be, however, you are supposed to be. You will still shine because the gift is still the gift. It's just sad that when you don't know who you are, the world will give you a false sense of identity that can kill you, cause you're trying to keep up and you're not being the real you. You're trying to become someone who you think people will accept and love."
