After going missing during the J Blessing saga, Avril returned to the internet with a bang

Renowned Kenyan singer Judith Nyambura, better known as Avril, has reactivated her Instagram account, approximately a week after deactivating it.

The ‘Nikimuna’ hitmaker abruptly closed her account, boasting nearly two million followers, last Wednesday following accusations of abuse against her co-parent, J Blessing.

On Tuesday, Avril’s account resurfaced, and she promptly shared an announcement regarding a classical music festival in Nairobi, featuring her alongside other veteran Kenyan artists, including Jua Cali, Mr. Lenny, Pilipili, and Jimwat.

“Old skul vibe on December 2nd #SaveTheDate,” Avril captioned the promotional poster.

Last Tuesday, Avril sparked concern among her fans after posting disturbing photographs of her face bearing apparent bruise marks, hinting at physical abuse by J Blessing.

Subsequently, the mother of one addressed the situation, clarifying her reasons for publicly disclosing her private struggles.

Avril later expressed forgiveness towards J Blessing for any past incidents and encouraged her fans to extend the same grace.

“I acknowledge that our seven-year relationship and our journey as parents to a beautiful little boy has been fraught with challenges, leading to conflicts that escalated into physical altercations,” she stated.

“We recognize the need for positive change and are committed to seeking support and learning more effective communication and conflict resolution strategies. Our shared goal is to foster a harmonious environment and provide mutual support, fostering understanding and personal growth,” Avril added.

In his defense, J Blessing acknowledged one of the images shared by Avril as an incident that occurred in the past.

“I deeply regret the harm I have caused Avril or anyone else. I acknowledge my wrongdoing, but I would like to clarify a few points,” J Blessing stated.

“Approximately a year ago, we engaged in a physical altercation, resulting in injuries for both of us. I immediately sought medical attention for Avril that day. I take full responsibility for that moment of weakness. One of the pictures she posted is from that incident,” he added.

The video producer further revealed that he and Avril had mutually agreed to end their relationship following the recent incident.

Avril Takes A Break From Social Media After Sharing Domestic Abuse Allegations

Following a tumultuous week that involved a public confrontation with her baby daddy, J Blessing, and accusations of domestic abuse, Kenyan singer and actress Avril has quietly disappeared from social media.

Avril, known to many as Judith Nyambura Mwangi, has taken a hiatus from all online platforms, with some of her accounts being entirely deleted, erasing a significant portion of her digital presence.

The singer’s social media absence began with the abrupt deletion of her Instagram account, which boasted over two million followers. Speculations immediately arose that Avril was seeking solace away from the public eye, opting for a social media detox to recharge and recover from the recent drama.

The sudden disappearance marked the culmination of a distressing week that began with Avril sharing a disturbing photo on Instagram, alleging physical abuse by her baby daddy, J Blessing. In a direct message directed at J Blessing, she issued a stern warning, demanding that he leave her life. Although the post was later removed, screenshots had already circulated widely, triggering a flurry of online discussions and criticisms.

Facing a barrage of trolls, Avril was compelled to respond, lashing out at those who trivialized domestic violence. She expressed her disgust at the insensitive comments and urged the public to take such matters seriously.

Avril’s decision to step away from social media highlights the emotional toll that public scrutiny and online harassment can take on an individual. Her actions demonstrate a need for self-preservation and a desire to protect her personal well-being during a challenging time.

It is unclear when or if Avril will return to social media, but her temporary departure serves as a reminder of the importance of mental health and the need to prioritize personal well-being in the face of online negativity.

Kenyan Musician Avril Forgives Baby Daddy J Blessings For Physical Assault

Kenyan musician Avril has taken to social media to share a heartfelt message about her decision to forgive her baby daddy, J Blessings, for physically assaulting her. Just hours after publicly calling out Blessings for his actions, Avril posted a message on Instagram explaining her reasons for forgiveness.

Avril acknowledged that she is a private person and typically refrains from sharing personal matters with the world. However, the pain she experienced from the assault compelled her to speak out. She expressed disappointment over the judgment and negativity she received from some people in response to her revelation.

Despite the criticism, Avril has chosen to extend forgiveness to Blessings. She urged her fans to follow suit, stating, “I Forgive You J, Please Find It In Your Hearts To Forgive Him Too. Everyone Is Deserving Of Forgiveness In This Life.”

Reflecting on their seven-year relationship, Avril acknowledged the challenges they have faced, including past fights. She emphasized their shared goal of improving communication and creating a supportive environment for each other.

Avril addressed accusations of clout-chasing, stating that she would never joke about such a serious issue that affects many people worldwide. She affirmed the authenticity of her experience and her genuine desire to move forward with forgiveness.

Avril’s decision to forgive Blessings serves as a powerful reminder of the transformative power of forgiveness. Her willingness to let go of anger and embrace compassion offers a path to healing and reconciliation, both for herself and for Blessings.

J Blessing reveals he has now split with Avril

Music video director and television producer J Blessing has confirmed his separation from singer Judith Nyambura Mwangi, known professionally as Avril. In a recent Instagram story, addressing the assault allegations against him, J Blessing stated that the couple has mutually agreed to “stay away from each other” to prevent similar incidents from recurring.

He further clarified that one of the circulating photos of Avril with a bruised face was indeed from a previous “altercation” that occurred a year ago. He acknowledged taking Avril to the hospital following the incident and expressed full responsibility for his actions.

However, J Blessing strongly denied the allegations of assaulting Avril “last night.” He apologized for any harm he may have caused Avril or anyone else, emphasizing that he is not an abuser, does not support violence, and has made mistakes in his life.

Earlier, Avril issued a statement forgiving her baby daddy and appealing to her fans to extend the same grace, stating that “everyone is deserving of forgiveness in this life.” She expressed her willingness to work on their seven-year relationship, acknowledging the need for change and seeking healthier communication and conflict resolution strategies.

“Our mutual goal is to create a more positive and supportive environment for each other, fostering understanding and growth,” Avril stated.

Avril publicly forgives J Blessing for bashing her, begs Kenyans to do the same

Avril Nyambura, a Kenyan musician, has reversed course and begged Kenyans to pardon her baby daddy. The single mother posted a picture of her damaged face on social media and tagged her baby daddy, saying, “Nikome umbwa hii.” She tagged him after captioning the photo.

Based on the responses, several people seemed to think she was chasing after clout and weren’t as encouraging as she had thought.

“Going through the comments, and I am in utter shock,this is why people never report this shit. Post this cause you all make people actually want to kill themselves after all they have been through. Have a laugh enjoy…bye “

She claims to have forgiven him now. She did, however, also say that the story is with the appropriate authorities, thus her comment was inconsistent.

J Blessing addresses allegations he beat up Avril

On November 14, 2023, singer Avril Nyambura posted pictures of her damaged face to Instagram Stories, which she quickly removed. Online communities expressed a wide range of opinions and worries in response to the unsettling photos, which rapidly went viral.

Avril bluntly attacked her baby daddy and well-known music director, J Blessing, in the since-deleted tweet, writing, “J Blessing unikome…” and using strong language after that. Avril took to social media to express her dismay at the public’s response to domestic violence. She criticized Kenyans, highlighting the seriousness of the problem and calling for increased awareness.

She expressed her disapproval of the internet mockery of such serious issues on Nairobi Gossip’s Instagram page, writing, “I’m shocked to read the comments. This is why people never report or post this shit because you guys make people want to commit suicide after everything they’ve been through. Enjoy your laugh and say “bye.”

He refused to comment when asked about the situation. He dismissed it with a joke, implying that he would use his social media accounts to address the matter if he choose to do so.
When contacted, Avril’s phone number was inaccessible.

Many Kenyans who were disturbed by the images rushed to social media to voice their outrage, denouncing domestic abuse and demanding responsibility:

J Blessing and Avril have been quietly dating for some time now, and they have never come clean about their relationship to the world.

I Thriveinchaos: There is no justification for this; he must face the law.

_ms_ngendo: This is extremely heartbreaking,the comments even worse.

Avril Attacked By Insensitive Comments After Sharing Disturbing Photo

Popular Kenyan singer and actor Judith Nyambura Mwangi, widely known as Avril, has been at the center of a public discussion about domestic abuse after sharing a disturbing photo on Instagram.

In the photo, Avril’s face appeared bruised, and she alleged that the injuries were caused by her ex-partner, renowned video director J Blessing.

The incident quickly gained traction on social media, with many users expressing support for Avril and condemning domestic violence. However, some online trolls also targeted Avril with insensitive comments.

Avril took to social media to address the online trolls, highlighting the harmful impact of their behavior on victims of domestic abuse. She emphasized that their actions can make victims feel ashamed and discouraged from speaking out about their experiences.

“Going through comments and I’m in utter shock … this is why people never report this shit, post this shit… cause y’all make people actually want to kill themselves after all they’ve been through… have a laugh.. enjoy.. bye,” Avril expressed.

Avril and J Blessing share a son born in 2018. While they have kept details of their relationship and co-parenting arrangements private, the recent events have brought their personal lives into the public eye.

J Blessing has not yet responded to Avril’s allegations. Avril has also not provided further details about the progress of the matter.

Avril’s public disclosure of her experience has sparked a conversation about domestic abuse in Kenya, highlighting the importance of speaking out about such violence and seeking support. It is crucial to remember that domestic abuse is a serious issue that can have devastating consequences for victims and their families. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, please reach out for help.

Avril Shares Photo Of Bruised Face, Suggests She Was Beaten By Baby Daddy J Blessing

Kenyan musician Avril is currently hurting after she was reportedly beaten black & blue by her baby daddy J Blessing.

The musician took to her Instagram stories to share photos that have left her fans concerned. In one photo, she was bruised up and had a bandage covering the bruise, but some blood could be seen. In another, her face was puffed up.

Kenyans have taken to social media to express their concern for the beloved musician. Many are wondering if she is safe and if anyone can check on her.

Avril’s fans have also taken to Twitter to share their concerns using the hashtag #PrayForAvril.

The photos have not been verified, and Avril has not commented on them.

This is not the first time that Avril has shared worrying pictures online. In 2019, she posted a photo of herself with a black eye and a bruised lip. She later said that the injuries were from a fall.

Avril has also spoken openly about her struggles with mental health before. She has also spoken about her experiences with anxiety and depression.

Avril’s fans are concerned for her well-being and are hoping that she is safe.

J Blessing is currently trending over the reports and his response is imminent.

‘I was a walking zombie’ Avril talks balancing motherhood and her music career

Motherhood is no joke. In fact, I don’t think there is anything harder than handling a toddler; but I’m told – teenagers are actually worse once they hit puberty and high on unnecessary hormones!

Tbt: Avril with son

Anyway Singer Avril recently held a candid interview with one Ala C; where she opened up about her school life, growing up in Nakuru, music journey and finally – the hardest of them all – Motherhood!

Although many assume motherhood is easy to cope up with; truth is its actually harder than a 9 to 5 routine job. And thanks to Avril’s latest interview; she actually explains this better. Speaking her experience Nyambura said;

Pressure, and stress, You should respect mothers. When my son was a day old its when it hit me that I no longer had a say.

Adding that motherhood needs selflessness saying;

Avril Nyambura’s baby boy

It would always be about him as he now fully depends on me. In the beginning, I was a walking zombie because I could not get enough sleep. Even now I still survive on very little sleep as I also have to chase my dream.


Balancing motherhood and work can be confusing and it’s easy to become depressed as one learns on the job.

Decision to embark on motherhood journey

Although Avril prefers keeping her private life off social media; the singer for the first time shared a little information on why she chose motherhood over her career saying;

(1hr 30sec)

I was very ready to be a mum. I HAD BEEN READY 5 years before I became one.
But I never had someone stable in my life. I wanted someone stable in my life so we take care of the child together. So when the person I am dating came into my life the situation felt right and he also wanted it.’

ONE ON ONE: Jimmy Gait reveals qualities his future wife must have, mtawezana? (Video)

There is a certain point you get to in your life and one of the things you start thinking about is settling down. Some will go as far as writing down the qualities they want their soulmate to possess while others will not mind how the package comes.

During an interview conducted by Caroline Mukami, James Ngaita, popularly known as Jimmy Gait, opened up about some of the celebrities he would not mind dating and also the qualities he is looking for in his future wife.

Jimmy Gait looking dapper

A fan asked who he would prefer dating between Tanasha Donna and Avril and his response was, “Tanasha is very beautiful and very intelligent but this is fiction…but Tanasha, yes!” The reason why he would not date Avril is because “I dont like very big, sizeable. Kubwa sana si sawa.”

Some of the aspects he considers are spiritual and physical. “If I was looking at the spiritual aspect, then I would not date Tanasha because she is Muslim.” As for Vera Sidika, he said hatawezana. Wacha akae na Brown Mauzo.

For the ladies who are eyeing the Muhadhara hitmaker, I have yet another leakage for you. You have to be an intelligent woman, not jumpy, should be quiet, sophisticated, classy, beautiful and born again.

Jimmy Gait opens up on his tough musical journey

The deal breaker for him would be if a woman is not born again. “Sana sana huyo mtu unataka kusaidia akuwe born again, atakuwa born again ndo mkuwe pamoja. Then once you are together, she goes back to what she used to do,” he stated.

The artist also gave us a history of why he broke up with one of his exes. Apparently, his ex went to his office drunk, staggering, acting funny, weird and shouting all over the place and that is when he decided to call it quits.

Ladies, I hope you took notes. Mine is to wish Jimmy Gait success as he looks for his future wife.

Watch the full interview below.

Apana tambua bwana! Willy Paul openly thirsty over the curvaceous Avril

Willy Paul is tired of holding back his feelings when it comes to Avril Nyambura! After years of trying to keep them hidden, seems that they continue to get stronger with time.

Having had enough, the young man has now decided to publicize his feelings for Avril as seen on his latest post. Well Pozee not only confessed that Avril’s voice keeps him alive and going; but so is her beauty.

This being the first time Willy Paul is writing such beautiful to address a lady; I must confess that there might be more than meets the eye! And in this case, they might just be planning to drop a new project now that Willy is no longer in the Gospel music industry. In his post, Willy Paul wrote;

Avril Nyambura

Also read: “Kuna ukabila na who knows who!” Willy Paul fed up with the corrupt music industry

Someone please tag this beautiful lady, her beauty n voice has kept some of us alive!! Kuna vile anakuanga tu amechukua my ❤️… aki huyu ndio the beautiful nani…

Avril responds

Judging from the way Avril responded to Willy’s post, could be that she had no idea that the singer would confess his feelings for her so openly.

But hey, since she is no longer in an exclusive relationship with J Blessing who is said to have married another woman; I guess Willy shooting his shot wouldn’t be taken as disrespect!

Avril response to Willy Paul

Not quite sure whether the ‘Wauuuuuuuuu’ was meant to come out positively or negatively; but at least Avril did not leave him hanging like she does with most of her admirers.

Curves! Avril parades acres of skin in tiny bikini, 2 years after welcoming her first child (Photos)

Avril Nyambura has been maintaining a low profile ever since welcoming her first child with J Blessing. Rumor making rounds on social media is however that the two parents allegedly parted ways barely 2 years after starting a family together!

We however cannot confirm how true the rumors are – especially since both Avril and J Blessing have proven to be quite secretive!

Despite having welcomed their baby boy 2 years ago; Avril has made sure to keep him off social media but word has it that he looks everything like his dad!

Post baby body

Jist like most women, Avril also underwent a few body changes after welcoming her first child! Her petite figure bloomed into perfect curves that often make people uncomfortable when she walks in a room!

Looking at the new bikini photos shared on her social media pages it’s evident to see that Avril’s curves got thicker after welcoming her first child; and if I am not wrong, I guess she may also not be in a hurry to shed off the gained weight anytime soon.

Her new bikini photos have however left team mafisi zooming in to get an up close look; but the truth is, Avril was undeniably favored by her pregnancy which brought out the best in her!

Although we may take a few more years before meeting her son; fans on the other hand feel that the singer should then at least release a new project to keep them busy and entertained  for the mean time. Anyway check out the bikini photos below.

Kenyan artists are mining gold hosting live shows, and not stopping even after the pandemic

Hollywood star Idris Elba proved his prowess away from the screen to host an electric live show tagged Africa Day Benefit Concert @ Home in celebration of Africa Day, on 25th May 2020. The concert was break from the normal, thanks to changing times occasioned by the global Covid-19 pandemic.

The exclusively African show was awash with a stellar cast of regional celebrities to make the online concert a digital musical talent footprint. In normal times, this cast would have graced the red carpet in the characteristic VIP treatment vibe, but well, times change.

Idris Elba had a terrific time hosting stars Bebe Cool, Yemi Alade, Sauti Sol, Burna Bwoy amongst others. Also making an appearance was South African stand-up comedian and TV host, Trevor Noah.

Closer home, Kenyan stars have had to re-package their brands to remain relevant in the dynamic industry. In the earlier times physical shows and concerts would give an artist instant feedback from their fans, but would be a handicap of sorts – their fan base would be restricted. Only the artists familiar with their work would be available.

A live, online show has a greater reach. An artist easily interests and captures followers beyond their normal fan base. This is great, especially post-pandemic with promise of sold out shows inclusive of the new following achieved in live YouTube and IG shows.

In Kenya, it’s hard to credit the most memorable live show. The list is impressive. They have had to learn on the job – there’s no handbook to learn from!

Music fans have been treated to the One Day Concert, by the eclectic performing artist Juliani. This show had a striking ‘Fight Inequality – Fight Covid-19’ theme. Another regular concert that took refuge online is the iconic Koroga Festival on Sunday 24th, which featured artists Zzero Sufuri and the Boondock’s Gang, live.

Yemi Alade

The perennial star Nyashinski has made a mark with his IG show. The Decimal Chronicles concert tagged the ‘Curfew Edition’ was lit, notably songstress Bridget Blue kicking it off with her single, Cheza.

Naiboi has teamed up with Avril, and H_Art the Band live on diverse dates and kept their followers on their toes. With such talent and vigor seen with Naiboi, the energy seeps right through the digital barriers.

Besides the music stars, celebrated mix-master DJ Bash became the first Kenyan entertainer to do a 24-hr live IG show. That’s previously unseen on these shores – uninterrupted, sizzling performance.

In this industry, things and trends change in an instant. Regardless of how things get after the global pandemic is brought under control, the live shows by our artists will be to stay. They’ve timely uncovered a hitherto-ignored digital gold mine, and its infinite possibilities.

Avril Nyambura’s special birthday message from baby daddy as she celebrate 34th birthday!

Avril Nyambura is finally 34 years…yes just 6 away from hitting 40, that age many women including myself tend to fear.

Anyway, the lass who is also a mother of a 2 year old baby boy has been aging like fine wine and unlike most women who are self conscious; Miss Avril is the true definition of beauty and inspiration to women.

However unlike other female celebrities like Betty Kyallo and Catherine Kamau who are sweethearts to many Kenyans; Avril has lately been receiving mixed feelings from Kenyans demanding for new projects since her silence is putting her talent to waste.


Birthday message from J Blessing

Anyway even after refusing to address claims linking her to J Blessing who is her alleged baby daddy; there is no doubt the chemistry between these two is quite strong.

A few weeks ago the singer excited many Kenyans with her birthday dedicated to Jibril. And now, the fella has returned the favor as he celebrated Avril with unique birthday message showing the real Avril.

As seen on the video, clearly there was no need of photoshop or slimming effects; and for some reason many seem to have fallen in love with the video showing Avril the small imperfections that make the lady an African Queen.

Private relationship

Although it’s evident that they have no plans of exposing their relationship to the public; chances are that these two now live as man and wife!

Indeed Jibril bagged himself a gorgeous woman, who is not only beautiful but has brains!

Avril with baby daddy, Jibril Blessing

Avril Nyambura has also proven to be good in terms of chasing her paper, and I bet this is why she cares less of what people say about her; whether good or bad since she can afford to pay her bills!

Vitu kwa ground ni different! Avril leaves fans talking after her unfiltered photos surface online

Avril Nyambura is one proud mum of a young baby boy and of course after pregnancy comes baby fat among other struggles that we women have to put up with.

Anyway, after welcoming her son back in 2018, the lady has been struggling to shed off her baby weight which is never too easy to cut and this where the filters/photoshop comes in handy for ladies.

Jalang’o, Avril and Chris 001

Well a few fans have come out to share their opinions after Avril’s filter free photo surfaced on social media – showing us the real her.

Reduce the filters

Don’t get me wrong, but adding weight especially after child birth is normal and acceptable – however these same celebrities who refuse to embrace the changes in their physical appearance are the same people giving young women the pressure to appear ‘perfect’ yet they look different in person.

Anyway below are the photos taken from her interview on Radio Milele earlier this morning.

Avril with Jalang’o

And the comments;

“Haitaki makasiriko!” Avril tells off Naiboi for holding on to old grudges

Singer Avril was not impressed with how Naiboi handled their beef which started back in 2018 after the mother of 1 refused to feature on his popular song dubbed 2 in 1.

Naiboi and Avril online fight

From my understanding back in 2018 Avri Nyambura was heavy with her first child and since she wanted to keep this on the low – it’s obvious that she wouldn’t have featured on Naiboi’s project.

However if is no secret that Naiboi has been holding on this grudge for almost two years and if possible for more coming years as he swore not to ever work with Avril.

Avril’s hits back

Well, through her Instagram page Avril went on to make things clear that she had no problem with no one whatsoever.

Although her post sounded sarcastic and carefree – I am not quite sure whether they will ever find it in their hearts to love past this stage. Anyway below is a screenshot from Avril’s response to Naiboi.


Kenyan musicians have so much to learn from their Tanzanian counterparts

I’m not a fan of Bongo music. I only listen to Tanzanian songs when I have to, for instance when I am doing a review or when they are randomly played at a club, party or in a matatu.

Also read: Why it’s hard for artists to be consistent

On the flip side, I admire so many Tanzanian artists not for any other reason but because they really work their asses off. I could list them but their names would take up all this space. So, I’ll save you the agony.

WCB arists
WCB artists

Bongo music has always been big deal  not only in Tanzania but across the continent and it’s bout time we – or rather our artists – borrowed a leaf from them.

They should ask themselves questions like,”What can we learn from Tanzanian musicians?”, “What areas should we work on?” and “What are they doing differently?”

One of the Bongo artists that I really admire, just like most of you is Diamond Platnumz. Despite being accomplished and all, he has never been content with his success. He keeps pushing each and every day.

Since the year begun he has released more than 30 songs, perhaps more, including collabos. As a result, he is always at the top of people’s minds.

Khaligraph Jones
Khaligraph Jones

It always seems like he is a pacesetter for the Tanzanian music industry since most people – including his stablemates – like Rayvanny, Lava Lava, Mbosso and Queen Darleen want to keep up with him.

The local music industry lacks a someone who keeps artists on their toes as is the case with Tanzania and this means that very few musicians, if any, give a hoot about consistency.

The truth is that people get bored very fast. I doubt if any of the people who are reading this article can have a jam in their playlists for more than a week and this means that artists need to release more music. There is no other way.

Many of you will be quick to point out that new age artists such as; Sailors Gang, Boondocks Gang, Ochunglo Family, 34 GVNG, Gwaash, etc. are constantly releasing music but let’s be honest, that is not serious music.

Nadia Mukami
Nadia Mukami

In as much as we find the songs by these youngins catchy, they rarely transcend our borders. It’s what it is. To add to that, the quality is always wanting.

I’m talking about the likes of Nyashinski, Nadia Mukami, Octopizzo, Khaligraph, King Kaka, Redsan, Nameless, Jua Cali, Avril etc. Will they ever wake up from their deep slumber? If so, when? Enough said.

“My son looks like Heaven Bahati” says Risper Faith

There are many who have been waiting for Risper to unveil her son’s face but it seems to be taking long.

However, thanks to a comment the lady recently left under the Bahati’s photo shared by Diana Marua we now understand that Risper’s son apparently looks like Heaven Bahati.

The Bahati’s

The mother of one went on to leave a comment saying;

So cute I wish I had the confidence to post my son he looks like heaven❤️????????


This is the first time Risper Faith is opening up about her son. A while back she had revealed that her husband Brian is not willing to have them share a photo of their baby – therefore it might take a while before we finally see him.

Singer Marya and husband

Among the celebrities who have continue to hide their children’s faces is Marya and her hubby who have kept their son Kevo Junior on the low for almost 2 years now.

Avril Nyambura, Cashy among others also seem to have joined in the new trend of keeping their babies on the low until they feel comfortable to reveal them.

Singer Avril already off the market? Check out her gorgeous ‘wedding bands’

Song bird Avril might have just walked down the aisle in secret if the new gold rings on her left fingers mean anything.

The mother of one flaunted her rings in a new photo shared on Instagram leaving her fans wondering whether she got married to her soon to be revealed baby daddy.

Judging from how she lately carries herself, well it wouldn’t be such a big surprise if she decided to have a low key wedding to avoid the press and public from interfering with her privacy.

Avril’s wedding band?

Avril linked to J Blessing

Rumors on the streets is that TV producer and Music Video Director J Blessing is Avril’s baby daddy and lover.

Avril with her son

Not quite sure whether the two got married but the rings Avril is seen rocking are definitely not cheap nor common.

“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.”

Most Kenyan musicians don’t know their worth and it’s sad

Despite being super-talented and all, you’ll be shocked to learn that most Kenyan musicians don’t really understand their worth. This is a sad fact of life!

So, here’s the scenario, you are are dead broke despite being an accomplished musician. You’ve dropped three new singles since the year began.

To add to that  you have thousands of followers on your own social media pages, meaning you can easily pull crowds to a gig.


Someone, say a fraudulent promoter, approaches and asks you to perform at an out of town gig for Ksh. 10,000 and you agree because you need to sort out some bills and what not.

Who’s the fool here? Is it the promoter or the musician. It’s definitely the latter and I’ll explain why.

You see, Kenyan musicians should be aware of their worth and stop undervaluing themselves. When they accept paltry amounts for out of town gigs, they are unknowingly setting a bad precedence.

Event organizers are always in constant communication. If word goes around that you charge a certain amount for a performance, your rate card is set.


The next time an event organizer calls the musician up, they will probably offer them the same amount or much less.

At the end of the day, a musician will be bitter for getting bad rates yet they are being offered such meagre amounts because of the precedence that they set. It’s your fault bro!

Musicians should know that it’s okay to turn down amounts they are not comfortable with and that their personal needs or debts should not come before their crafts.

If a musician  needs a manager to help them evaluate how much they are worth, they should go ahead and get one. It’s totally okay!

This way, they’ll get paid what they are worth.  The musician, will also be able to do more things. Instead of performing at many small gigs and being underpaid, just have one or two and get your worth.

Some of the musicians who have been smiling all the way to the bank because they understand their worth are the likes of Naiboi, Khaligraph, Sauti Sol, Otile Brown, Nameless, Avril, Fena Gitu, King Kaka, Octopizzo, Nyashinski, just to name a few.


If you’ve been wondering how come they always have a new song every now and then it’s because they are getting paid what they are worth.

“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. 

Striking a balance between work and baby! Avril reveals her struggle with parenting

Sultry singer Avril became a mother for the first time sometimes in July 2018. Her life changed forever since she gave birth to her son.

Avril opened up about motherhood challenges during a recent interview with Kiss FM. She talked about lessons she has learnt ever since she became a mother.

“Motherhood has it’s trials, especially for a new mum right at the beginning when it hasn’t quite hit you that this is your life now; but it’s the most rewarding chapter of my life that I have ever found myself in. It’s teaching me a love that I never knew existed, patience that has brought me so much peace. The fatigue at the beginning weighed me and I’ll admit got me a bit loopy, but once I got a hang of things I started being a very happy tired person,” said Avril.

Baby and work

Avril also narrated how she had managed striking a balance between her son and her work. The mother of one revealed that being self employed has really helped her even though she get affected emotionally when she leaves her son behind for a few days due to the nature of her job.

“Later I think the greatest challenge started being striking that balance as a working mother. I am fortunate to be self-employed so I spend a lot of time with my son, but there comes a time when I need to travel for a couple of days; that’s usually pretty hard for me especially emotionally. The first time was the worst,” Avril said.





Avril explains why she refused to appear in Naiboi’s video whereas she agreed to appear in Otile Brown’s new video

Rapper Naiboi was sad and depressed when fellow artistes Avril, Sanaipei Tande and Victoria Kimani refused to feature in his music video ‘2 in 1’.

The irony is that ‘2 in 1’ went on to become such a big hit after the ladies turned him down. The rapper said Avril and Sanaipei Tande politely declined his request to appear in his music video whereas Victoria Kimani simply ignored his request.

“Avril told me she was going to send, but I tried calling and my calls went unanswered. For her, I believe she might have not understood the idea, but at least she told me she was going to send, which she didn’t. It was a different case with Victoria. I called Sanaipei and she told me at the moment she can’t be in such a project, unless we have a project together. That makes sense to me, than someone blue-ticking me,” said Naiboi in a past interview.

‘There is a whole science behind it’ Avril shares how she managed to lose the extra baby fat and snapped back 

Singer Avril gave birth early this year to a healthy baby boy. It’s no yet clear who the father of the baby is but rumors have insisted it’s producer J Blessing.

The two have always dodged giving an official statement on the matter and have neither denied or accepted they brought the baby to this world.

Anyway, having given birth, the singer managed to snap back to her curvy body in just weeks and many are wondering how it all happened. In an interview with Switch TV, she explained that breastfeeding has helped her cut the weight.

“You know what happened, I gave birth to a baby boy who has been breastfeeding. I chose to exclusively breastfeed my baby up to now he is 8 months still breastfeeding. I started weaning him at 6 months he loves his mashed bananas and bla bla bla but he still breastfeeds,” she said.


The singer went on to add that many people underestimate the power of breastfeeding but it’s important in losing weight. There’s a lot of science in play that many don’t understand which makes it all possible.

“There is a whole science behind it, there is a chemical in the brain called oxytocin. So when it’s generated from the brain to the abdomen muscles it tells the body you need to contract… So when you are breastfeeding that chemical goes down and causes contractions and the contraction leave you snatched.” she added.
