Vanessa Mdee has shared a personal journey of transformation – leaving behind alcohol and finding peace through faith. After revealing her four years of sobriety, she took to TikTok to explain her reasons.
Mdee described a period of heavy drinking to cope with stress and depression in the demanding world of entertainment.
“I was a functional alcoholic,” she admitted, highlighting the outward success that masked an unhealthy reliance on alcohol. However, by 2018, her nightly dependence had become unmanageable.
A turning point came through faith.
“As I got closer to God, the Holy Spirit convicted me to stop drinking,” she shared. This spiritual guidance, coupled with a personal trauma, prompted her decision to quit alcohol for good.
Mdee, now residing in the U.S. with her fiancé Rotimi and their two children, has openly embraced Christianity. In a previous TikTok video, she declared accepting Christ as her savior her best decision ever.
“I was at my peak professionally, loved by fans, but deeply unhappy,” she recalled. “Something needed to change. I surrendered to God and found healing and peace.”
Mdee’s story speaks to the challenges of coping with pressure and the pursuit of true happiness beyond external validation. Her choice to share her journey candidly can inspire others facing similar struggles, offering hope and a message of faith-driven transformation.
