R&B Singer Nivea is prepping a return to music after a long hiatus. She is the subject of BET Digital’s new series Finding: Nivea, which documents her life inside and outside of the music industry. Her PR rollout has seen her discussing various aspects of her personal life, including her relationships with rapper Lil Wayne and singer-songwriter The Dream. Her love life has always been a topic of interest among fans, but she has also revealed a very private and troubling aspect of her personal life. In a sit-down interview on the M+M+M Podcast, Nivea revealed the details of her long and difficult battle with drug addiction. Tearfully, she broke down, stating that it is her kids that keep her healthy, sober, and give her strength to even live.
It is amazing to see how strong this woman is through all of the difficulties she has faced in her life, and it is even more amazing to see her fight through it all and return to her passion of making music. She will soon be releasing a new single entitled “Circles,” and she is rumored to be featured on Lil Wayne’s upcoming, and long-awaited, Carter V album. I’m definitely rooting and praying for Nivea.
