“My Grandfather was a boxing champion” screams Avril while sharing her family lineage 

Singer Avril is a champion in the music industry because she sure comes from a family of champions.

The singer was recently on social media to share that her grandpa Philip Waruinge once represented Kenya in the Olympics in Mexico in 1968 and won Bronze medal.


According to Avril, she has heard a lot about his stories while growing up. She was on social media to honor him saying that he is a true hero.

“I am humbled having met this man is an under statement… very few people know know that I am the grand daughter of the living legend boxing olympian phillip waruinge… hearing tales about him from his childhood friend and boxer as well, jimmie ‘pap pap’, made my heart so full #myheroes #greatnessrunsthroughmyveins #stinger #lightweightboxingchampions.”

“My pregnancy hormones didn’t like him” Avril on why he blocked ‘noisy’ Shaffie Weru 

Well, there’s a popular saying in Swahili that goes like “Mimba ilimkata” which roughly translates to a pregnant woman disliking someone because of nothing at all. Just hormones pushing her into the act.

That’s what happened between singer Avril and radio host Shaffie Weru. A pregnant Avril blocked the popular radio host on instagram without a specific reason.

Missed him

In her recent visit to Kiss FM to launch her new song, Shaffie asked her why she did and Avril confessed that it was just her hormones.

“It was my pregnancy hormones.” she told him. 

Having blocked him for several months, Avril confessed that she later missed him on her timeline.

“You are the only female celebrity i follow so not seeing you for one year 3 months was hard for me,” she added.

Si uko na wako na haumuweki! Fans attack Avril after she posted Jacque Maribe’s son on social media 

A section of Kenyans was not happy with singer Avril after she posted Jacque Maribe’s son on her Instagram page yet she hasn’t been posting her baby.

A photo shared by Eric Omondi on his social media account to show support for Maribe after she was sent to Langata Women Prison has been doing rounds on social media.


According to fans, Avril shouldn’t post the photo because the young boy is not connected to the on going case. Also, because she doesn’t post her’s she should refrain from posting other people’s kids on her page.

Here are some of the comments:

Ruby: Ni wapi huyo mtoto amehusika kumuua Monica.style up my dear.Niko na uhakika hata huyo Monica huenda yuko na scandal zake alizoenda nazo kaburini kushinda hii.Alikuwa anafanya nini na fiance wa wenyewe.Simurudii yeyote kwa mauwaji lakini mwache huyu malaika nje ya hayo.

Luccie: Pull this down if you could not go support her in court! Fake friend

Imma: @theavieway put yourself in Jackie’s shoes, would you be happy if someone else posted a pic of your lovely son on social media, without your consent, when you are at your worst moment? When you so much wish you could hold him or spend some quality time with him, but you can’t because you found yourself in a compromising situation that has left you behind bars. Do unto others what you would like others to do unto you. When you post anything people will comment and not everyone has good vibes, some will comment with harsh words living you feeling sorry or even worse. I believe God is in control?

Judith: Why are you posting this kid, these Kenyan celebrities wako down sana, post your babies, kwanza wewe mwenyewe unaficha wako, usituletee….so disgusting

Kari: @theavieway this pic is very inappropriate. You claim privacy for your child and want to expose someone else’s child while pretending to be showing sympathy. Very hypocritical behaviour especially from a celebrity mom. Know better, do better.

Emmy: This one is quick to post another woman’s child na wake ako busy protecting from Social media, pull this pic down woman with all due respect

Lee: Don’t post another persons child without consent from the mother .Its violating the child’s right and the mother did not give consent considering all the turmoil going on around her. Celebrity or not its not right!..who told you showing the agony of the child to the world helps the child or the mother.

Rexy: Seriously Avril….. No one has the right to start circulating the kids pic.. He is not involved in this


Avril’s allegedly baby daddy angrily denies he’s planning a wedding, wants to marry a model

Kenyans have been closely monitoring gospel producer J Blessing and singer Avril to see whether the two will drop any hint that they are dating. Sources have been strongly pointing out that the popular producer might actually have fathered Avril’s baby.

Well, it seems JB still has a lot to explain after word emerged that he’s currently planning a secret wedding with a model.

Long rant

According to Kiss, the producer has been inviting his friends for the wedding but was in no mood to share the details. He fired back with a long rant when approached on the issue.

“If someone wants to talk about themselves, they will talk about themselves, or even call you to tell you about them and what to publish. So wait till that time I will want to talk about myself, I call and ask for the interview myself.” he said when asked on the issue.

J blessing

“You know me as a video director and not a celebrity because I don’t sing and I am not your friend. I do not advertise myself because I am not a politician or a singer You asking me about my wedding does not make sense because like I said, you are not my friend and so if I want to publicize myself I have channels like Youtube and Facebook.”

He went on with the rant.

“Na nikitaka kuanika kitu, nitaandika na niseme (If I want to publicize someone, I will post it there with the highlights that) this is what I am doing. I do not need media to publicize myself, if I need it, I will call the relevant people and tell them to write that about me.”


This is what Avril said about Jblessing on his birthday, the two have been rumored to be expecting a child in a few months

It’s not a secret anymore. Singer Avril is pregnant and the father of the baby, we are not yet sure but multiple sources claim that it’s Jblessing.

Avril has now posted a few photos online already to show that she’s expecting a baby but as expected, she’s staying silent on the man behind it all probably because of the storm her announcement might bring.

We all know Jblessing was married to singer Chantel but had to part ways after their kid passed on and relationship hit rock bottom.

Birthday wishes

The gospel producer celebrated his birthday recently and many celebs flooded social media with long birthday wishes. Avril on the hand posted a simple message that somehow indicated that the two might soon make their relationship public.

Here is what she posted:
