Mary Irungu popularly known as Maryaprude or rather Willis Raburu’s ex wife is finally opening up about; the other side of her unknown life with the 10/10 host and TV personality.
Having been married for close to 2 years (5th May 2017) the duo unfortunately fell off in early 2020; whivh led to their untimely divorce and now – social media ‘failed marriage scandal.’
For months we waited we waited to hear about what led to the break up; but judging from the interviews Maryaprude’s is giving – let’s just say she is taking one day at a time!
Opens up about two pregnancies
Speaking recently to Word Is; Maryaprude for the first time revealed that she actually got pregnant for the Willis Raburu twice. However, the first pregnancy was in 2018 – was an an-embryonic pregnancy; which did not last for more than 3 months as it had to be terminated.
The lady opened up saying;
What people don’t know is that I had lost another pregnancy in 2018 at nine weeks then. In 2019, I got pregnant with baby Adana,”
From Marya says, one can assume (actually confirm;) that they were really putting in a lot pressure to have children as she went on to add;
It was really tough for us since we were trying to get a child.
Maybe they both wanted to start a family asap hence the back to back pregnancies; but again, could it be that Willis Raburu really wanted a child of his own that bad?
I mean, didn’t he just have a baby barely a year after his divorce; which explains the ‘trying to have a child’ Marya is talking about.
Giving birth to a still baby has definitely left Maryaprude and Willis Raburu at a very vulnerable place!
The couple lost their first child at birth on 31st December 2019 as revealed on their social media pages.
In remembrance of their late daughter the Raburu’s have gone ahead to get tattoos of their late daughter’s names on their arms. Willis Raburu went on ahead to show off his tattoo on his gram and now his wife has joined him!
Mrs Raburu’s tribute to late daughter
Through her Instagram page, Mrs Raburu celebrated the daughter she never got to meet by writing her (late daughter’s) name on her arm.
Having kept the pregnancy a secret for 9 months and losing the child definitely left Marya in a position that no mother can fully explain in words.
However, we hope things will look up for the couple as they try to get over the loss of the Adana.
Willis Raburu and his wife MaryaPrude must be going through such a hard time after losing their daughter during birth just a few days ago.
The Citizen TV’s media personality announced this through his Instagram page where he opened up about the complications that led to his baby’s death.
From his post, Willis Raburu says that his daughter was the most beautiful baby he had ever set his eyes on – even though it was just for a short while. He went on to write;
Raburu gives more details
According to Willis, his wife Maryaprude had a normal delivery but there were a few complications and a clot that caused the still birth.
Even during this hard moment, Raburu went on to reveal the name given to their child ‘baby Adana’ who he loved very much! Below is a well detailed shared by the Citizen TV talking about his late daughter.
Over the past few days my heart has been shattered and torn in to several pieces. The pain I have felt has been immeasurable and one that words fail to aptly capture. It has left me with several questions and literally reset my outlook on life. I may not be able to share the full extent of it all but I cannot bear it alone. I am therefore going to be taking a short break from work and my duties on @1010fanpage @citizentvkenya @hothappyhour and @hot96fmkenya to allow for my wife and I to get through the motions. While I am away several people will be holding fort for me, the shows will go on. I want to thank them in advance for heeding the abrupt call to action. I want to say thank you for those in the know who continue to lift my wife and I in prayer and ask that you continue to do so up until the time I will be back on your screens and on your radio! I love you all, you make me who I am. See you soon. Successful people look like you! WABEBEE!
Citizen TV presenter Willis Raburu and his wife Marya Prudence were excited to go for their honeymoon after days of planning, but God had other plans.
Speaking on Citizen TV, Raburu and his wife confessed that their honeymoon was a nightmare which haunts them to date.
The two recounted how the room they were booked in did not only have an unusually elevated bed which according to Marya, limited certain activities, but was also infested with millipedes and other reptile-like animals.
“This room had a bed that was too high… I had to literally climb it. And, even if you think of the activity at the junction, there were some things we couldn’t do on that bed. The room also had millipedes coloured black and red. They could appear anywhere. You could sleep and wake up, and see the millipedes on the frame of the bed,” said Marya.
Raburu, who exchanged vows with with his longtime lover at an upscale Runda neighborhood in Nairobi in 2017, added that the honeymoon haunted him most because he was behind it.
“It was chaos! I was like, I have brought somebody’s daughter here and on our first day, she wants to cry. And you know on top of that she was in the zone. So, there was no activity at the junction. So, ni kupendana tu like a brother and sister ( we spent like brother and sister),” he added.
Music trio P unit and Citizen TV news anchor Willis Raburu have urged Kenyans not to donate any funds for of hunger-stricken counties.
According to the three guys, Kenyan government has been ignoring citizens in all kind of manner and shouldn’t ask for donations from them.
“Hii gov yetu imetuzoea sana .Hawatupei kazi na bado wanataka mchango. I am totally opposed to any Kenyan straining his or her pocket further to throw some cash to M-Changa or Paybill account to feed Kenyans starving in Turkana, I wish to incite the readers of this post to desist from doing so.
“Somebody make me understand how such a rich county could experience death as a result of drought, yesterday I said drought is not an accident, It is not an abrupt happening like the typhoons, it is foreseeable. Allow me to repeat the same. It is not the first time Turkana is experiencing drought.
“What were these allocations for? To pay employees? To take elites to devolution conference? To buy leaders choppers? Let Turkana residents go arrest their leaders and demand the money we all donated to them as a country. We got no other cash to contribute via M-Changa or M-Pesa, they can either choose to act or choose to die, he said.
Gabu’s P-Unit counterpart Frasha also came out to support saying:
“I say no to paybill number” campaign. Part of his comment on Gabu’s post reads: “Change shall not come from IG and what’s app groups it’s high time the youth realized they are the majority and they have the power to change this country. How can we be talking of drought in the 21st century yet countries which are deserts give us relief food.”
Willis Raburu also tweeted bashing governors saying that they are never concerned about their people.
It’s now a year since Willis Raburu and his wife Maryaprude exchanged vows. The two have endured a lot as a couple as they fought social media severally while defending their love.
Their love has grown stronger from such challenges and Raburu took to social media to prove this sending a lovely message in the process to celebrate their first anniversary.
Here is the post Raburu made to honour their anniversary.
“I am normally very good with words, but it’s only your beauty that renders me speechless. I marvel at your heart and love for God, your love and respect for me…you teach me so much, you inspire me, you pick me up, you are my number 1 fan, you got me and you are even more sexy when you pray. My personal bad girl, my comedian, my best friend. Like I said I get speechless but the words that I am forever grateful I spoke are: “I DO” I love you,” he wrote on Instagram.
His wife added:
“I Love you so much! It’s one year now to many more I used to wonder what they meant by saying Marriage is a lot of work and it is meant for grown ups,Believe me now I know,” her post read.
Citizen TV’s news anchor Willis Raburu is not only making changes about his outward appearance but also concentrating on his inner being.
Just recently he revealed that he has become closer to God thanks to his wife who has been guiding him all through out. According to him having a prayerful wife has encouraged him to renew his relationship with God and he is grateful for this.
In a post shared on his social media pages Willis Raburu wrote saying;
Listen, do NOT be fooled. I am who I am today and Will continue to grow and succeed because of the prayers of my wife. She is beautiful on the outside and the inside. Maryaprude Raburu, I celebrate, honor and love you. Thank you for drawing me closers to God.
