Vasectomy is a controversial topic in Kenya, where having many children is often seen as a sign of virility and social status. However, with the rising cost of living, more and more men are considering vasectomy as a form of family planning.
Sam West is one man who is not interested in getting a vasectomy. In a recent interview with Mpasho, he said,
“I would never undergo a vasectomy. You might get to an age where God wants you to get another child, what would happen then?”
West’s comments reflect the traditional Kenyan view of vasectomy, which is often seen as a form of castration. However, there are many misconceptions about vasectomy, and it is important to remember that it is a safe and reversible procedure.
In addition to his views on vasectomy, West also spoke about blended families. He said that he and his ex-wife, Vivianne, were often pressured to have a child of their own, even though they both had children from previous relationships.
“People tend to think that when you bring another child he/she will bring unity to the relationship,” West said. “But the truth of the matter is that the union of a relationship depends on whether the couple wants to be together or not.”
West’s comments about blended families are a reminder that family is not always about blood relations. It is about the love and commitment between two people.
Whether or not you choose to have a vasectomy is a personal decision. However, it is important to be informed about the procedure and to weigh the risks and benefits before making a decision. If you are considering vasectomy, talk to your doctor to learn more.
Sam West, the ex-husband of singer Vivianne, has declined to discuss the reasons for their divorce with any media outlets. In a statement posted to his social media accounts, West said that he does not want to demean his ex-wife by discussing what went wrong in their marriage.
“I am receiving a lot of calls from media houses requesting for an interview to share my side of the story,” West wrote. “Let me make some things clear:
I never discuss my private life in public.
I will never disrespect people I have dated before by tarnishing their names in the media.
So just know you will never hear my side of the story in public.”
West’s decision to not discuss the reasons for his divorce is a rare one in the world of celebrity gossip. Most celebrities, when faced with a divorce, are quick to share their side of the story with the media in an attempt to control the narrative. However, West has chosen to take a different approach. He has decided to focus on his privacy and to protect the privacy of his ex-wife.
West’s decision is admirable. It is refreshing to see a celebrity who is willing to put the needs of his family ahead of his own need for attention. It is also a reminder that even celebrities are entitled to their privacy.
The CEO of Hero radio Sam West has opened up about his personal life; revealing that he lost his brother to depression a few years ago.
Through his Instagram page the fella went on to share a well detailed post advising those who have been struggling with depression; but never get to talk about it. He went on to open up saying;
As someone who lost a brother through suicide I needed to weigh in and speak to someone who is contemplating on suicide at the moment.
According to Sam West so many people struggle on the low but never push themselves to committing suicide; because every situation in life is temporary no matter how painful it is!
No matter how much pain you’re experiencing right now, you’re not alone. Many of us have had suicidal thoughts at some point in our lives. Feeling suicidal is not a character defect, and it doesn’t mean that you are crazy, or weak, or flawed. It only means that you have more pain than you can cope with right now. But with time and support, you can overcome your problems and the pain and suicidal feelings will pass.
He went on to add;
Some of the finest, most admired, needed, and talented people have been where you are now. Many of us have thought about taking our own lives when we’ve felt overwhelmed by depression and devoid of all hope. But the pain of depression can be treated and hope can be renewed.
There is always a solution
In Sam’s post he makes it clear that a person has the power to choose or not choose what he wants to even when depressed. However death has never been an answer; therefore it is important to face whatever life throws at a person.
No matter what your situation, there are people who need you, places where you can make a difference, and experiences that can remind you that life is worth living. It takes real courage to face death and step back from the brink. You can use that courage to face life, to learn coping skills for overcoming depression, and for finding the strength to keep going.
He then concluded by reminding people that pain and unhappiness is part of life; but is always temporary!
Although it might seem as if your pain and unhappiness will never end, it is important to realize that crises are usually temporary. Solutions are often found, feelings change, unexpected positive events occur. Remember: suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Give yourself the time necessary for things to change and the pain to subside.
Kindly share this widely, someone on your TL needs it.
Singer Vivian counts herself among the lucky women to have bagged herself a hardworking and supportive husband like Sam West.
So far the two have been together for years and after their traditional wedding; many men were left heartbroken since Vivian had chosen Sam West to be her better half for life! Well, even after years of living as man and wife Vivian can’t stop praising her man for everything he is and will be in the future.
Just recently the singer went on to share a new post where she wrote saying;
It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work. Share the wealth. And if one falls down, the other helps. But if there’s no one to help, tough! ➖Ecclesiastes 4:10Swipe for Sweetness ???? #vibes #newmusicsoon #mapenzibilamasharti
Mapenzi bila masharti
This post was shared just a few days ago before the release of her new song dubbed Mapenzi bila masharti which talks about unconditional love.
Since it’s not everyone who has had the chance of experiencing what true love is; singer Vivian has painted it in her song which will not only speak to couples but singles dreaming of the same type of love.
Hero Radio CEO who is also dating singer Vivian is back with season 2 of his Comedy show dubbed Sam West Comedy.
He ventured into comedy back in 2018 and judging from his posts then, we can confirm that Sam West was ready to take over the comedy industry after years of Churchill running it!
So far we understand that has not only had a successful career as online influencer but also an entrepreneur with several businesses in the country.
Sam West comedy back with a bang!
His first show went down in Nakuru earlier today and judging from the photos; we can confirm that he did had a successful start! About 700 people showed up for the event which was also graced by his wife, Vivian.
Among the invited guest is Titus Hug, an American who owns a big construction company called HUG CONSTRUCTION. He is also happens to fund over 100 university students in Kenya through campus; and is passionate in mentoring young people.
The couple are known for their hustle hard motto and despite having 2 kids; they also find time to spend with their kids apart from focusing on their different careers.
Vivian on the other hand is also set torelease her first 2020 project dubbed Masharti as seen on her Instagram page. Well, with all the that talent, I bet the lady will not let her fans breathe with her upcoming projects that will blow many off their feet!
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.
Speaking to Betty Kyallo during her Up Close show, the Hero Radio CEO cum comedian and wife singer Vivian opened up about their family and some of the challenges they have been facing ever since their union.
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,”
I don’t know what’s worse between Vivian’s new collabo with Savara and Naiboi dubbed Cheza Chini or the terrible publicity stunt that she pulled on her fans days before she released the song.
Give me a chance to explain myself before you brand me a hater. You see, I am a huge fan of Vivian just like you. Without a doubt, she’s one of the most gifted female singers in Kenya. Her gift is her golden voice. She has this rare voice that is so sweet to the ears.
Perhaps this explains why she has a huge following. Well, she is also very beautiful. However, I feel like she is more known for her voice. Anyway, this is a story for another day. Isn’t it?
The point is, Vivian is known for her vocal prowess. She also has a loyal legion of fans who are always looking forward to listing to her latest music. I occasionally see her songs on music TV shows which means she’s getting good airplay.
As such, I don’t understand why she had to do a publicity stunt days before releasing her collabo with Naiboi and Savara dubbed Cheza Chini. To make matters worse, the publicity stunt was so terrible.
On Friday last week, Vivian shared some screenshots of a WhatsApp group chat on her Facebook page and I believe that they were just stage managed just to hype the new song before it was released.
Apparently, Vivian’s husband, Sam West, was unhappy with how Naiboi was holding his partner in the video so much so that he asked them to re-edit the video before releasing it on April 29.
After all that drama, you would think that the song would be worth writing home about when it was finally released. It’s really not. It’s so lacklustre. Naiboi and Vivian’s parts just seem off. I was so disappointed when I first heard it.
However, Savara really did a good job on the hook. He almost saved this song. The hook, goes like “Cheza za chini usichome picha…kamejipa, cheza za chini usichome picha…kameshika.”
Be that as it may, the song has a decent beat. It was produced by the one and only Cedric Njega, alias Rixx, The video, which was directed by Sammy Dee, is also good. The transitioning from one scene to another is also good.
Incase you are wondering, Naiboi and Vivian are still seen getting close in the video. The 2 in 1 hitmaker occasionally holds her around the waist.
Singer Vivian, while speaking in an interview with Massawe Jappani, opened about one of her most embarrassing moments which happened while she was on stage.
According to the singer, she had to cut short her performance after her zipper bust open leaving little to imagination. Lucky, her fiance Sam West, came on stage and helped her out.
“I once had my zipper torn while performing and had to stop my performance and go make it. Sam came on stage and made it for me, a great challenge of managing female artiste. It was the most embarrassing thing on stage,” she said.
Vivain also shared that they are currently planning a white wedding after their ruracio. The two had their ruracio ceremony early this year after Sam, who doubles up as Vivian’s manager, proposed to her last year during an interview on live TV.
“The wedding arrangements are in progress. It is easier to date him because he was and is still my manager and music is all about lifestyle. Your exposure is big and therefore you need someone close to you every time.” she said.
Regarding having kids, Vivian, who is a mother of one, said:
“I don’t know if I want to get babies but if they come, it is okay with me. Although it is not right to put pressure on getting a baby. You have to have embraced the decision of getting kids. When babies come, they come with a lot of responsibility, which every woman has to be ready to adapt to.” she said.
Vivian is lucky to be dating a comedian, Sam West has to make him laugh first before he goes out to crack jokes to the general public.
Sam West reveals that Vivian doesn’t just laugh to his jokes because they are dating. The comedian says it takes an international comedian to make Vivian to laugh, but he has somehow managed to make her laugh.
“She never laughs at dry jokes. She is very hard to crack. Anyone who can make her laugh is an International Comedian #Panari #SCE3,” wrote Sam West.

A few days ago the social media was awash with news that Hero Radio had shut down operations after a fake memo surfaced purporting that the popular radio station was letting go its entire work force.

Last weekend, Singer Vivian was a guest on Citizen TV’s 10 over 10 show which is hosted by Joey Muthengi and Willis Raburu.
What transpired on 10 over 10 made mouths wag for days – Hero Radio CEO Sam West went down on his knees and popped the big question.
Before Sam asked Vivian for her hand in marriage, he had to go through a painstaking process of composing the most romantic words that he would bombard his sweetheart with on live TV.
“I knew Vivian for more than a year ago but I knew her before then. We have been working as a team and today I feel like there is something I should tell her. The girl in front of you is a queen and she needs a man who can build a palace for her. She is more than a queen, she’s an angel… she needs someone who can bring heaven for her. Today Vivian there is there one thing I want to tell you…I have a gift for you.” Sam West flirted with Vivian before he went down on his knees and proposed to her.
But the romantic words alone meant nothing without a ring – Some West had to put a ring on Vivian’s finger and this is where he part with enough money to buy a secondhand Probox.
Sam West had been planning to propose to Vivian for a long time, he however didn’t know how and when he could do it. Vivian’s interview on Citizen TV was eureka moment for Sam West who had already bought a ring.
The Hero Radio CEO spent a whopping $3,670 or Kes 378,927 to buy the ring that he put on Vivian’s finger when he proposed to her.
