Having survived physical and sexual abuse early in her career, singer Vivian feels for other girls trying to make it. Vivian claims that Some of the men in the entertainment industry objectify female artistes and it is very common. She also added that it is the nature of that space. The experiences she have had have shaped her and she tend to have a lot of empathy for young girls growing in the industry.
On her sexual abuse, she blames identity crisis. She says that she realised that all along, she was waiting for other people to give her permission to be herself yet God had already qualified her.
So all the sexual and physical abuse, was just because she wasn't able to identify that this was a bad space for her. That is a form of self rejection cause she didn't love herself enough to walk away from a bad situation. Vivian said she didn't know better and had not reported it to the authorities.
She also complained that people in the industry try to romantically hook up the female artistes with top dogs in the political scene. She urged young girls to be confident in their own abilities and be their genuine selves.
