As you already know, Willis Raburu’s marriage to Maryaprude crumbled after losing their first child together during birth. From what he says is that the loss hit him so hard to a point he lost himself grieving hence creating more problems in his marriage.

Speaking on his failed marriage to Maryaprude, Willis Raburu took all the blame saying he concentrated on himself forgetting that they were two; and above all – alcohol and long drives is what he wanted at the time…and kist like that everything came down crushing down on him;

It was extremely tough and painful, especially my show you need energy, so it became an acting gig. I would get into the show, do it then cry all the way home.

Why the divorce

Both being first time parents with alot going on behind closed doors and still in mourning – Willis Raburu says it got to a point where he had no option but to initiate for a divorce.

I initiated the process of divorce and all respect to her.

Adding that although it was not his intentions to marry and divorce her – there was no alternative; and come to think of it – maybe everything happened for the best.

Unfortunately, it happened. Nobody goes into a marriage with hopes to come out. I am happy that sometimes we lost ourselves. We divorced officially and I moved on.

Willis Raburu must be one of the best dads out here and I think he knows it. Despite having been blessed with a bouncing baby boy 2 years after losing his daughter with ex wife, Maryaprude – the father of two still says he remembers his angel.

Well, just a few hours ago the BAZU entertainment CEO happened to share a new message we all believe was dedicated to his late daughter, Adana. Judging from what he wrote, looks like Willis Raburu still holds his daughter memory close to his heart and has not forgotten her.

Willis Raburu – Father of two!

His post comes days after he introduced his 4 month old son to his family back in the village. Seeing how everyone reacted to photos of his son and granddad – of course Willis (maybe) didn’t want his ex wife to feel that he didn’t appreciate the child they had – but lost.

Speaking about his kids a while back – Willis Raburu made it know that he considers himself as a father of two – and that’s a fact no one or any situation would change.

It has however come to my attention while reading some of them that I am constantly referred to as a “Father of One” This however is not the case. As many of you know I lost my daughter Adana. For those who have gone through such loss, you know that it Never leaves You.
