American-Tanzanian artist Vanessa Mdee now says her life at the height of her career she was miserable.

That pushed her to seek God and give her life to Christ.

Through her Tit Tok account, Mdee says giving her life to Christ has been the best thing she did for herself.

"I was depressed and exhausted at the height of my career, I kept going but I was sick and was a workaholic suffering inside."


Further adding

"The greatest fans in the world but I needed true happiness because all that glitters is not gold.

My spirit wasn't at peace so something needed to change.

I surrendered and said God you can have my heart.

Jesus blessed me. healed me and continues to work on me."


In 2020 Vanessa shocked many after announcing her decision to quit music.


Speaking on her podcast “Deep Dive with Vanessa Mdee“, the songbird said that while she loves music, the industry itself is demonic and it steered her down the wrong path.


“I don’t know who needs to hear this but my mission is to be a light. I know that I will probably disappoint a few people and that’s okay, I know that my fans don’t wanna hear this but guess what I am never gonna be too far away from you, trust me. The reason why I had to leave the industry is because I needed to choose my life, the music industry is demonic. People will tell you half-truths about what goes on, and the truth is I just wanna be an advocate for honesty and beauty and a sincere advocate for what facing your demons can do for you.

“Now my fans are probably asking themselves right now; Are you gonna never sing again? Are we gonna never see you perform? Let me reiterate, I love music, I love to create, I love to perform, I’m a vessel, this is what I was brought on earth to be, but maybe I was a vessel to be here in this moment to have gone through everything that I have gone through so that I can tell you most honestly the truth about things you will never hear somewhere else,” said Mdee.
