Nivea feels that  her career was ruined by the music industry. The music executives wanted her to change her image. Back then it was not popular to be a married woman with children. There is a certain persona that music buys into. Being single and sexy was more acceptable, according to Chicago Defender.

“At the time I wasn’t receiving a lot of support,” expressed the Atlanta native. “I had management issues and imaging issues. I was being labeled ‘unf*ckable’ to male fans because the industry wants female artist to be attractive because sex sells. They said, ‘you are getting booed up, wifed, and trying to have a baby. You are unf*ckable to us.’ Jive Records, the industry itself and all of the games you have to play, and the fake persona you have to maintain is overwhelming.”

Their break – up was mutual. However, during the interview she admitted that things were not great between her and The Dream.
