Are you trying to be funny? Singer Vivian trolled for claiming she used to walk around 500 meters to save bus fare

We have heard stories of some of the crazy things entertainers used to do before they became famous. Some used to collect garbage, others used to sleep in clubs while other went for days hungry in pursuit of their dreams.

For singer Vivian, she used to walk just a few meters to see her dream come true.

Bus fare

The singer was recently trolled by Kenyans after sharing she used to walk from Nairobi West to Nyayo, which is barely 500 meters, so as to save.

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 not the first time the singer is talking about her past though this one completely surprised everyone. The singer has always shared how she used to be a hawker before getting her big break.

“Why should I really boast. By then things were so tough on me. I hadn’t started singing. I was a mali mali seller. I sold cups, plates, thermos to make ends meet. The piece of watermelon was my lunch that day. Surely never despise humble beginnings. I look at my life and all I can say is God reigns over our lives. Your current situation is not your future. There is always a brighter day ahead,” she said.
