Tanzanian Atlanta-based singer Vanessa Mdee has revealed the real reason she left the music industry after entertaining her fans for close to 13 years.
In her podcast dubbed Deep Dive with Vanessa Mdee, the Kisela singer the reason why she called it quits was because she needed to choose her life and the music industry is demonic.
“The reason why I had to leave the industry is because I needed to choose my life, the music industry is demonic,” she disclosed.
She went on to mention that people tell half-truths on what is going on and all she wants is to be an advocate for what one facing their demons can do for them.
“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 for you,” she added.
She went on to stress out that she is a vessel, loves creating and performing music but her time had come to an end. She added that she was brought in the music industry so that she can tell people what happens in the circles that other artists would never tell them.
She went on to advise her fans to be true to themselves as she now understood what that phrase means. She mentioned that she used to question every move she used to make and did not understand why people kept piling pressure on her.
She revealed that many people used to tell her that since she relocated to Atlanta, US, she had the perfect opportunity to make her music.
“This is a note to my African stars and artists out there, don’t chase the American dream. There are too many Selena Gomez out here, not yet even conceived and there are only just a few chances not to kill your dream but be great where you are, that’s the only way to do it,” she advised other African artists.
