Kenyan artiste Vivianne has advised fellow artistes to embrace where they come from and take it as a stepping stone towards their success story in the future.
Speaking exclusively to Mpasho Vivianne said there is no shame in coming from a poor background.
‘People/ artistes should be honest with where they are and not feel like they should be loaded for them to be respected.
Most people are always afraid and constantly ask ‘If I say I have problems how will people look at me?’
You should not think about that.’
‘Every one is going through something.
A lot of artistes have come from poor backgrounds.
There is no shame in having a humble beginning, its very unfortunate to lose people due to mental illness.’
Vivianne had in the past opened up on having struggled to an extent of hawking
‘I have done a lot of activation’s for companies and supermarkets.
I also sold cutlery on the streets. I did it once and I sold everything that day.
I was working for a company that paid very little commission.
That is one thing that discouraged me otherwise I have always been aggressive.
‘Its difficult, you really have to humble yourself.
I had studied marketing but I had to settle for that job. I decided to try and see what comes out of it.
It’s important to embrace opportunities.’
