Vivian responds to trolls, vows to walk from town to Karen to prove she’s hardy

Singer Vivian became a laughing stock during the weekend after sharing that she used to walk from Nairobi West to Nyayo to save bus fare which she later used to record her first songs.

The distance between Nairobi West and Nyayo, if there’s any, is actually not more than 500 meters.  Kenyans trolled the singer for her comments in an KTN interview after she shared her humble beginnings.

Vivian appeared in the just-launched KTN program “Behind the music” where she shared her story leaving many in stitches.

“I used to walk from Nairobi West to Nyayo to save fare,” she said.


“Even when I was working, I used to steal some hours to go to the studio.” 


It’s seems she has taken the Vivianchallange serious and now has promised that she will walk from the CBD to Karen. That’s about 20 km.

“Word on the street is that she can’t walk for long distances. Let me prove you otherwise. Who wants to walk with me from Nyayo House to Nairobi West then to @moran_house in Karen?” she said on social media. 

For those who don’t know, Vivian used to be a hawker. A Mali Mali guy. And these guys can walk up to 30kms in a day so she might actually successfully do it. Don’t let the pretty face fool you.
