Sad goodbyes! Vanessa Mdee announces her exit from the music industry (Details)

For majority of celebrities, they have been judged by the world based on their career, the image of them that the media has portrayed about them.

However, unlike what we see or hear from our TV screens and radio waves, a one-on-one conversation with a celebrity will completely change your perspective about them.

Most of them are actually friendly, warm, welcoming and pretty nice but until you meet them – you will always form perceptions about them, based on how the media introduced them to the world.

Tanzanian music sensation, Vanessa Mdee surprised many after announcing she was taking a music break following her 13 years of toiling hard as an artiste.

She quits

During her 29-minute talk on her podcast dubbed Deep Dive with Vanessa Mdee, the Atlanta-based singer-songwriter said she had had enough of hypocrisy in the music industry.

I don´t know who needs to hear this, but my mission is to be a light and I know that I would probably disappoint a few people and that´s okay. I know that my fans don´t wanna hear this but guess what, am never too far away from you, trust me.

Contrary to her values, the music industry is ´demonic´, she said. But for her, she rather quit and lead a life of honesty, beauty and be a source of light to people around the world.

The reason why I had to leave the industry is because I needed to choose my life, the music industry is demonic. People will tell you half-truth about what really goes on and the truth is I just wanna be an advocate for honesty and beauty and being a sincere advocate for what ´facing your demons can do do you´.

To her fans, she said it was time she bid the world of music goodbye because she has done what she needed to do and it is now time to be a light to the world.

Now my fans are probably asking themselves right now: Are you gonna never sing again? Are we never gonna see you perform? Let me reiterate, I love music, I love to create, I love to perform, I´m a vessel, this is what I was brought on earth to be.
