Route Entertainment singer Vivian Tendo has come out and revealed how she is still in a bitter fight with her father of her music career, she says that her father being a pastor has always wantd her to sing Gospel music if she is to join the music industry.
Ever since she started singing secular music, there hasn’t been any communication between herself and her dad. She has also failed to reconcile and settle the matter.
In an interview, she reveals to The Kampala Sun that that her father, Godfrey Ntubiro was a music tutor at Mityana Secondary School and Makerere College School so he wanted her to step in his shoes, not in this secular way. Ntubiro is now a music curriculum expert for secondary schools.
“I think my father wanted me be like him but I ended up going secular. He taught me all the basics of academic music. I learnt all the sol-fa notations and harmonies from him. He trained me to be an academic music expert. When I released my first hit, he became so angry as well as all other family members. It was so hard to make him believe in me. Since he is also a pastor, it took me two years to connect with him again. It was a hard task…,” she said.
Vivian has songs that include Hajjat wa Hajji, Mukati, Timango, Leero and Onyango.
