Kenyan singer Vivianne has finally confirmed she was dumped by her now ex-husband Sam West.
Sam doubled as the singer's partner and her music manager.
In an interview on Ilikuwaje, Vivianne says their relationship had been troubled adding that Sam had too many expectations of her.
"When it comes to relationships especially nowadays they are unpredictable.
Some things stopped working in our relationship and that is why it broke.
I think there was a lot of pent-up anger."
"Nowadays it's like we want to punish the other person because they are not what you want them to be.
There was a lot of betrayals. There are some things he wanted from me and his patience run out.
We were now getting into the next phase of our life."
In a past social media post, the mother of one said she has gone through the blues and shared lessons learned from the devastating split.
"Shiba shiba kabisa first course of action after a breakup. Ku process ni baadaye."
She added that it has been intense but filled with new friends
"Lost the house moved into a smaller one (next to mum).....embraced love and support....took personal responsibility over my crap. New podcast...Back to college #thefarm #certifiedpsychologist....lost all old friends.... found new community and loving them better.....kept moving and still moving. You too can start again."
In 2020, Vivianne and Sam West asked for prayers for their marriage saying social media had painted an image of perfect marriages.
“Social media couples have created illusions of perfect marriages which we feel are quite misleading.. To be honest we have ignored each other’s needs in our union.
Expectations and control took over our relationship. We are in a tough space and to be honest we are hoping we will overcome the current challenge. Hii sio Kiki. For those who love even one of us remember us in your prayers. May Gods will be done. In the meantime ukipata unayemdhamini never take them for granted,” wrote Vivian.
Sam and Vivian announced their split in October this year, after months of speculation that they were no longer together.
