Local singer Vivian Wambui is the first female artiste to come out to support Cashy after domestic violence claims.
In an explosive interview with Mpasho.co.ke, Cashy accused Khaligraph Jones of being violent. Cashy said she ended her five-year relationship with fellow rapper because of physical abuse.
While consoling Cashy, Vivian, who has been a victim of domestic violence said she understands the pain and journey. Her message read:
I watched Cashy speak about being abused physically and my heart goes out to her. I’m certain it has not happened to us in the same breath but I too have experienced physical abuse. Physical abuse was part of my welcoming party as a new female artiste from one influential and hurt male figure. I almost gave up pursuing music.
She went ahead to advise women to be extra careful before falling for someone.
Girls be careful what and who you let in your life. Cashy I’m sorry for having to go through physical abuse. I would never want any girl to endure physical and emotional abuse. It’s a form of bondage and as women, we must refuse to be victims. It’s enough.
Remind yourself that you are smart, gifted, confident and life is not done with you yet.
Instead of retreating, keep soaring; keep evolving; keep growing; keep elevating!
The world needs you!
Vivian has in the past shared her story on domestic violence and she said, her man who was a public figure used to beat her. Vivian also stated that for her as an individual, she was still discovering herself. She was not brave enough to say:
am not going to take this or am worth more than this.
SOMETIMES WHEN SOMEONE BEATS YOU UP OR SAYS THINGS THAT HURT YOU, IT AFFECTS YOUR SELF ESTEEM NEGATIVELY.
