Tammy Rivera might be Waka Flocka’s wifey but don’t get it twisted, she’s more than just a pretty face. We peeped the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star
singing sanging on her Instagram page and couldn’t resist to ask her about it. We asked Tammy if she had any musical ambitions and this what she told us,
You can see more of Tammy on an all new Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Monday at 8/7c.
I started off singing, for a long time. Since I was a kid, I’ve been singing. In my family, I’m known as the one who used to sing their little butt off. When I got with Waka, I suppressed it. He didn’t even know I could sing because I didn’t want no one around him to think that I was with him because I wanted to use him for a career. So for years, he never even knew I had a voice, until one day, I just sung, I just started singing and he was flabbergasted. He was like, ’What the f— was that?’ [Laughs] So, I kind of hid it but it’s really my passion, it’s something that I love. I love music, it really is a stress reliever with me. I love music but I never got to explore that side, as much. When I was a kid, I did a lot of talent shows and stuff but I kind of want to explore, not as a career as a singer but just to open myself up, because I can be very guarded about my family and my life and I’d like to [express] some of what I’ve been through, through music. If it touches somebody, it touches somebody but at the same time, it’s therapy for me.
