“It was a spiritual illness” Vivian explains reason behind swollen face

Singer Viviane was trending about a week ago following alleged beef with rapper Sosuun on social media. However we later learnt that the ladies created the alleged beef, hoping to create hype for their latest project and it worked.

Maybe because they were smart enough with their last stunt, that involved an alleged fight. Anyway, with ta video showing Sosuun attack Vivian, someone got creative and started circulating photos showing Vivian’s swollen face, claiming this was a result of the fight.

But turns out these are old photos shared by Vivian a while back after she suffered a serious allergy. Speaking about her condition back then, Vivian wrote;

My Kitengela people, I hope you will forgive me for not showing up tonight. I fell sick on my way. My allergies blew over. I am however optimistic I will get better as I am already on my antihistamines. I hope to come perform next week.

My mind was not calm

However in a recent interview with Mungai Eve, Vivian says the allergies came at a time when she had so much on her plate – to a point – the issues affected her mentally.

Judging from what she said is that being a celebrity put too much pressure on her, especially with people offering different advises on how to remain relevant in the music industry.

With this, her mind began to juggle everything at once and before she knew – Vivian’s mental health was already troubled.

In my head I was not calm, I was getting confused and somehow I started becoming sick.

When asked why she referred to the allergies as spiritual illness, the singer said;

There is a relationship between the mind and the body, so my mind was unwell and my body began manifesting that.


Singer Vivian reveals the biggest challenge facing her union with Sam West

Singer Vivian and her husband Sam West finally got to open up about their relationship as a married couple almost one year since their tradition wedding which was held back in  March, 2018.

According to the couple, raising kids from their previous relationships has been one of the toughest things to do.

This is because their kids were used to different lives before — and now are forced to live under the roof as siblings making it hard to connect. Sam West went on to open up saying;

“One of the key things with blended families, you have to understand who you are. You are different species, it is not a normal family. Because one you are trying to connect with your partner as two individuals and now you also have other people as well. You have a child, she has a child and the two of them also have to integrate.”

Singer Vivian on the other hand went on to add that parenting someone else’s child is hard especially when it comes to disciplinary matters. The singer went on to say;

“We have different ways in which we were used in bringing up our children differently, so that is also an issue because maybe there is something he will see maybe me and Natalie and he will be like why don’t you try this and it’s easy to take offence with that. And maybe I will do the same with him and Ty and it’s a girl and a boy, so also their behaviours are completely different,”
