Vivian Kenya: Navigating the Storms of Separation
In a recent interview, Vivian Kenya, known for her soulful music, bared her heart and soul about the challenges she faced after the end of her marriage to producer Sam West. Her candid revelations gave us a glimpse into the emotional rollercoaster she experienced, both personally and professionally.
She had a profound void in her life which was laced after the dissolution of her marriage. Losing not only a partner but also a collaborator and confidant was incredibly challenging. Vivian found herself grappling with the reality of rebuilding her music career without the support and collaboration she had grown accustomed to.
“Ideally, in a proper marriage you have to synergize. You have to create a proper foundation, but you also have to synergize. For me as a musician how I would handle things in a business perspective.”
As Vivian shared her journey, she highlighted the deep impact the separation had on her. She spoke about the difficulties of handling the business aspects of her career and the emotional toll it took on her artistic path. However, amidst the turmoil, Vivian broke free from an unfavourable contract in early 2023, reclaiming her autonomy and regaining control over her music and career decisions.

This song is an attempt to invite you to a time capsule whereby I have lived my life meaningfully. I have been pruned in so many areas that needed plugging out for growth to happen, just like a tree that needed to sprout fresh fruit. Thank you all for waiting. So, allow me to reintroduce myself: “Hi, I am Phy and I am back! Phy Aliendanga Wapi (PAW) out on Youtube now!”
