Fast-rising musician, Vivian Tendo who is responsible for the hit song, Hajjat Wa Hajji has expressed concerns over her own safety. Through an Instagram post on Friday, Vivian said she was not having peace of mind as a result of threats sent to her by her former manager, Yesse Oman Rafiki.
Vivian was previously working under Rafiki’s Route Entertainment but quit the label in December 2021. She says her manager has been trying to get her back to the label something she is hesitant to do.
“To all my fans, I’m really sorry but I finally run out of patience, I’ve tried so much to handle this matter as a mature person, I’ve been strong enough to stay on the bad side of the story and I understand you all want me to drop new music but with whatever is going on behind the curtains I can’t. I’m not looking for any sympathy but in case anything happens to me or any of my friends or any of my family at least you can know who to question! I’ve been threatened so many times and I wouldn’t want you to post my pics with “Missing person “ or “RIP” without knowing why! It’s totally out of my control now because it literally costs my life so I hope you don’t judge me I’m only trying to protect myself or my life before things get totally worse! I’ve always dodged interviews for the respect and gratitude I have for my former management but unfortunately, the respect can’t be returned NB: That’s my boss speaking” Vivian wrote on Instagram
In the audio attached along with the post, Yesse is heard telling Vivian not to destroy a brand he helped build for years. He speaks with sheer anger, and in some instances uses abusive words. Yesse suggests in the audio that he still wants to manage Vivian and he is cross at the possibility that she will work with other people.
He also feels that Tendo doesn’t value the efforts he invested during the time they were together.
