The talk of the music industry being demonic is not new. This conversation has been had by several people pointing out the fact that musicians subscribe to different deities for success. They have also been portrayed in a very negative light which usually comes with being in the spotlight and trying to live life in the fast lane.

We are not surprised that many secular artists choose to change direction to gospel only to have a better image portrayed to their fans, family and followers, something we can see in the case of Size 8, well at least from her story shared via her reality show.

Now Tanzanian music sensation, Vanessa Mdee has surprised many after announcing she was  done with  the music industry.During her 29-minute talk on her podcast dubbedDeep Dive with Vanessa Mdee’, the Atlanta-based singer-songwriter said she had had enough of hypocrisy in the music industry.

‘’I don´t know who needs to hear this, but my mission is to be a light and I know that I would probably disappoint a few people and that´s okay. I know that my fans don´t wanna hear this but guess what, am never too far away from you, trust me.’’

Contrary to her values, the music industry is ´demonic´, she said. But for her, she rather quit and lead a life of honesty, beauty and be a source of light to people around the world.

’The reason why I had to leave the industry is because I needed to choose my life, the music industry is demonic. 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 do you´.’’

To her fans, she said it was time she bid the world of music goodbye because she has done what she needed to do and it is now time to be a light to the world.

‘’Now my fans are probably asking themselves right now: Are you gonna never sing again? Are we never gonna see you perform? Let me reiterate, I love music, I love to create, I love to perform, I´m a vessel, this is what I was brought on earth to be.’’

For now, it is not yet clear what her next venture will be, well at least we know she has a podcast but if anything else comes up, we shall surely let you know what it is. 

We wish you all the best in your endeavors Vanessa.
