Willis Raburu Shows Off Tremendous Weight Loss After Surgery

Media personality Willis Raburu has shared before and after photo of himself after undergoing the gastric bypass surgery. Taking to his social media, Bazuu shared a message of encouragement to anyone looking to lose weight to undergo the procedure without fear.

”I remember when I thought about doing the gastric bypass surgery. It was intense, but I was suffering. My confidence was low, my pressure was high, I had tried gym but kept bouncing back and honestly the cost will make you think twice BUT I learned that it’s an investment in myself. That if I don’t believe in me and want what’s best for me, who will? It is an option it’s almost treated with disdain and most people want to do it privately and that is ok. However we must be bold especially when it’s a life saving procedure.

I wish insurance companies change their policy and help pay for this.Many should come out and help people get this surgery done. It’s life changing! Statistics show that children now are getting more and more obese. Folks let’s keep talking and learning. I’m available.”

Willis further maintained that the surgery is the most effective way to cut off weight.

”Also please I did the GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY. Don’t be fooled by some ads about black latte tea or some powder!”

However in remembrance of his late daughter, both him and ex, Maryaprude got her name Adana tatted on their arms. Luckily for him, he has been blessed with yet another daughter, a year after he welcomed his firstborn son with his now fiance, Ivy Namu.

 

‘I can’t & I won’t:’ Willis Raburu to body shaming critics suggesting he should quit cooking show to help lose weight

Willis Raburu recently revealed he slent betweeb Sh600k to 900k on gastric bypass surgery to help lose weight. However the process has been slow on his side since the surgery aims at helping reduce his food intake; which many of his followers dont seem to understand.

Actually most of the ctitics picking on him made it known they would never spend such an amount to lose weight especially with how bad the economy is. One actually left a comment telling him that he’d been duped…i mean, with Sh 900k, are they giving him a spare body? For just incase…..

Anyway the fan wrote;

Sh900k went down the drain just like that? They deceived you.

Body shaming is immoral – Willis Raburu

Well, according to Willis Raburu the process is slow but sure on his side and although fans are trying to get in his head…truth is, he tries to avoid the negativity but in the end he is also human and has feelings.

Actually its getting harder for him now that some are asking him to quit his cooking show on Citizen TV…hoping maybe if he keeps off food, the weight loss might just work. Wow.

Former Citizen TV co-presenters Joey Muthengi and Willis Raburu

Anyway adressing them on his latest interview, Raburu said;

I can’t stop doing the show it is one of the most watched on citizen TV morning almost 2 million viewers, so we must be doing something right. Plus it’s once a week jameni! Si basi tuseme ni cheat meal! But we cook very healthy meals.

Adding that although the comments may seem light and just for fun…what they dont know is that pointing out such sensitive things (bodyweight) creates doubts and lowers self esteem for the receiving party.

Well, it’s okay for the haters to troll, because that is just what they do and who they are. It is almost immoral to body shame an individual. Think about it every day I wake up in this body and live in this body and feel what it is like to carry the weight. Now imagine being reminded or treated like it’s your fault on top of that. Or pointing out the obvious. We need to be more sensitive to these things.

But all in all, so far he has lost 21kgs in just 6 months.

I was 164 kg and now I am down 21 kg. It takes patience. One day at a time. Even 21 kg down, I am still heavier than most but it is a process.

Willis Raburu on breakup with first wife, Maryaprude & why he had to ask for a divorce

Willis Raburu says he does bot wish divorce on anyone, actually if he had a choice – maybe he would still be married to his ex wife, Maryaprude; but life happened and almost 2 years later he is actually happier than ever.

Marya Prude and Willis Raburu

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.

Tbt: Maryaprude and Willis Raburu exchanging vows

Adding:

…you’ve lost your daughter then now you’re like I am losing my wife

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.

The Raburu’s are not far from welcoming their second child and boy is the Citizen TV presenter excited. Well, after years of wanting a family of his own, all Raburu got was rejection from his first fiancé, divorce from his first wife but finally – he met his other half and life has never been the same.

Ivy Namu and Willis Raburu announce second pregnancy

Well out of all his relationships, Willis Raburu looks his best and happiest with Ivy Namu who is the mother of his children. Chances are that their age difference is what makes it easier for them to reason and make their relationship work unlike his previous attempts.

Anyway with the second baby not far from being born, Willis Raburu this past weekend held a lavish baby shower for his sweetheart Ivy Namu and judging from the theme color and decorations….Ghafla believes the couple is having a baby girl.

And if we’re right, then I bet Raburu can’t wait to finally have a daughter especially since he lost his first baby girl at birth.

Baby shower

Unlike the first baby shower they held back when pregnant with Mali – this time around the Raburu’s chose to share the experience with their fans.

From the video, we also understand the event was only attended by family and very few friends who came in to celebrate Ivy Namu for staying strong the past 9 months; as well as gift her with some baby gifts before baby arrives.

Check out a few screenshots from Ivy Namu’s video.

Willis Raburu on why he was forced to undergo gastric bypass surgery

Willis Raburu tried working out to lose some unwanted body fat, but I guess the whole gym idea and feeling didn’t work out so good for him so he quit.

However with or without the gym he had no option but to find a way to shed off the weight since his doctor felt the excess body fat would result to something serious like death.

Raburu flaunting new weight loss

He told me if I was not going to lose some kilograms of the body weight, sooner or later, it would be a recipe for my death

However this is not something he wants now that he has a young family with a son and another baby on the way with fiancé Ivy Namu; hence his decision to undergo gastric bypass surgery to help him lose the weight. Speaking about this in recent interview – Willis Raburu said;

 I went for gastric bypass surgery. I respect people who persistently go to the gym. The gym is a lot of work. I had a good trainer but I would lose weight but I would regain that weight again very quickly.

Body fat becoming a burden

Well another he decided to cut off the unwanted weight is because his clothes also started to become too tight; and above all – his blood pressure kept spiking every now and then making him to lose his breathe.

It’s not fun waking up and trying a trouser and it doesn’t fit you. You equally worry. By the time I was going for the surgery I was not doing well. I was 164kgs I needed the surgery because my blood pressure and cholesterol were high

Inside Willis Raburu and fiancé Ivy Namu’s amazing babymoon vacation (Photos)

Ivy Namu was lucky enough to take some time off from her usual activities ahead of her second baby’s birth. Yes, she headed to the coast in the company of her fiancé Willis Raburu who doubles up as her baby daddy.

As seen on their social media pages – the couple spent most of their time by the beach enjoying the sun, sand and some alone time now that their second baby is almost here.

Having handled a newborn before – these two definitely needed to create some good memories to hang on to before all he’ll breaks loose….imagine handling two toddlers! Too much work to even take a break.

The Raburu’s now ready for the arrival of baby number 2

Anyway flaunting her huge baby bump, Namu stepped out in a simple bikini but chose to cover up below the waist…but either way – she still looked great for a pregnant lady.

On one of the posts, Ivy Namu went on to reveal they both can’t wait to meet their baby saying;

Ivy Namu enjoying babymoon

This is my baby moon face ???? I’ve had such an amazing time with my fiancé, as we countdown to meeting our little one, my heart is full ❤️ #babymoon #preggo #peaceandlight #happy #babygyal4life

Not sure why but Ivy Namu has been throwing hints about her baby gender…and most netizens in the comment section feel it’s a baby girl.

Well whatever gender it may be, Willis Raburu must be over the moon to have a family he can call his own after years of wanting one.

 

Ivy Namu reveals unique qualities that attracted her to Willis Raburu & why she’s never leaving!

Ivy Namu has been hearing things about herself on social media  making her wonder where the rumors are coming from. However I guess her protruding belly is what has fans saying she is prego!

Well despite knowing this is the rumor making rounds online about her, Ms Namu still hasn’t confirmed whether she’s pregnant on not. Responding to a fan asking the same question, she said;

Baby number 2 for the Raburus?

This question is very funny& not in a haha way. With all the factors surrounding pregnancy, surely it should be up to the peeps involved to share the news at their own time? Idk I find it impolite to ask such a personal question.

 

And just like that she made her fans more curious about the rumors – while others felt like she may have just confirmed this indirectly.

Man like Willis Raburu

Well, if indeed she’s expecting a second child with Raburu means that she may have found the man she’d always dreamt of.

So far she’s made it known that he is not only her partner but also her best friend. Describing some of the qualities that attracted her to him, Ivy Namu said;

He’s kind, compassionate, honest & a man of his word. I feel safe & secure around him & never had to ask about what his feelings or plans with me coz he’s always been so open about it.

Adding;

Also I never had to change, hide or fake anything about myself (good&bad) around him; I can always be ???? Me and that makes me feel free. I love it here.

 

Willis Raburu and girlfriend Ivy Namu expecting baby number 2? (Photos)

Ivy Namu and Willis Raburu could be expecting their second child together that is judging from the latest photos we’ve seen from the lady. Okay, I know most of y’all will be like how do you know, you womb watcher… but calm down we have photos to explain our theory.

Well, looks like either Ivy Namu quit working out and has been enjoying some carbs which would explain her protruding belly – but again – chances are that she could also be with child. This is because, lately she has been trying to conceal her stomach on most photos, like…

Ivy Namu expecting baby number 2?

Like I said, we really can’t confirm until the couple officially announces this but as of now – the photos will do just fine.

So far we’ve seen about 5 people photos where she appears pregnant and thing is… her fans have also noticed this too. One of her fans wrote;

The Raburus

Willis Raburu forced to explain why he cancelled lavish birthday

Willis Raburu was supposed to hold a lavish birthday event for April babies this past weekend; but unfortunately, this did not happen following an illness that forced him to cancel his attendance at the special event set to happen at Garage Thika.

According to Willis Raburu he has been battling a stomach infection that left him weak  and unable to function. The celebrated media personality made this known in a detailed post  shared on his social media pages saying;

This evening I was slated to host April Babies party along side industry greats and many of my friends at Garage Thika. Unfortunately this evening a stomach infection began that has left me feeling weak and unable to function at 100%. I would do anything for my fans, many of who had already turned up and sent me messages saying they were ready for me.

Well for anyone who understands how stomach infections work or better yet –  has experienced the challenges it comes with…I bet y’all can understand why Willis Raburu couldn’t risk leaving home, right?

Apology

On the same statement, Raburu apologizes to the guests and fans who had been looking forward to the event.

I am seeking medical help and I’m sure it will blow away and I’ll be back on my feet in no time.

adding;

Once again I apologize to the fans and to the management.

Raburu’s statement

His illness comes barely a week after girlfriend Ivy Namu shared a post complaining of her son’s illness – that had left her helpless.

But having her not talk about it again – means baby is now better; and it’s time to take care of her other baby, big man Bazu – and you still wonder why she complained of fatigue?

Willis Raburu’s girlfriend admits feeling helpless and tired after son fell ill

They say motherhood is a full time job and I’m pretty sure Ivy Namu now understands what that means not forgetting what it takes to be a mum.

I’ve  heard that it’s tough – there are days that include sleepless nights, fatigue and worse – tending to a sick baby and all you can rely on medication alone. Well, Ivy Namu and partner Willis Raburu have not been having it easy after their son fell ill recently.

According to the new mum – despite all the advise she’s gathered from fellow mums and even her own mum – nothing would have ever prepared her on how to handle a sick baby.

Ivy Namu with son

 Nothing could’ve prepared me for how intense it is to have a sick baby.

Helpless

In a detailed post shared on her Instagram page, Namu narrated her experience with a sick baby saying;

I feel so sorry for him and helpless. And I am also very tired. He is tired of the meds but hatuna otherwise. I hope today is even better than the last couple of days. For now it’s lots of cuddles & TLC for my little one.

But the good thing is that baby is responding well to his medications; meaning this will be over even before Ivy Namu and Willis Raburu realize it.

Willis Raburu opens up about divorce from ex wife, MaryaPrude’s – says he tried everything to save marriage

Willis Raburu and ex wife Maryaprude are legally divorced after 2 years of marriage. Their divorce however came as a big surprise since it happened only a few months after Maryaprude gave birth to a still baby.

With the whole grieving process, looks like both Maryaprude and Willis lost the passion and love they had towards each other hence settling for divorce. The media personality confirmed this through a recent interview where he opened up about his divorce from Marya.

tbt: Maryaprude and Willis Raburu

According to Raburu – divorce was the only solution to his marriage with Maryaprude. This is because before deciding to part ways, he tried talking, therapy, going to church but still it did not work. And for the sake of their mental health – divorce then became the last option.

Speaking during recent interview with a vernacular TV station Willis said;

It was very difficult because when you decide to settle on divorce, it means you have tried so many other things like talking, therapy, tried going to church…But when it reaches a point where all your misunderstandings are pointed towards hurting your partner then it’s better to just stay as friends.

Toxic relationship?

Although he did not make it obvious, something about Willis Raburu’s statement says his relationship with Maryaprude was slowly getting toxic. And being the man in the relationship – Willis was forced to bottle up emotions which later came out and as you can see – it didn’t end so well.

Ex couple; Willis and Maryaprude

Bottling a lot of issues in marriage is not healthy. Men are told they need to be strong and not cry but in reality, I was sad and crying on the inside. When I left the house I used to cry as well.

Adding:

You can only be strong for so long as it is assumed men should be. But it reaches a point when you have had enough and can’t take it anymore. And when you reach the end, you start to be resentful towards your partner as they are towards you.

And if you thought divorce is an easy process where you pay up lawyers and let them handle the whole process on your behalf….guess what it’s actually a nightmare that Willis Raburu says he cannot wish on his worst enemy.

Divorce and child loss is something I wouldn’t wish even upon my worst enemy,

Probably because of the facial structure and the adorable small nose that matches that of mummy, Ivy Namu. However we now stand corrected that Raburu’s baby boy is actually a replica of his grand dad, Mr Raburu.

This can be seen in the new photos shared on Willis Raburu’s page, where he flaunts two photos showing the three generation of the Raburu boys.

Just by looking at grand daddy’s mouth, eyes  and facial expression; one can say that baby Raburu and his grandpa are actually twins. More like Nitolee photocopy story .

The people in this picture all respond to: Mr. Raburu ????????????????

Maryaprude opens up her first miscarriage before losing baby Adana in 2019

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.

Maryaprude and Willis Raburu exchanging vows

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!

Ex couple; Willis and Maryaprude

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.

Tbt: Pregnant Maryaprude before stillbirth

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,”

Trouble conceiving

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.

Maryaprude hints why marriage to Willis Raburu was extremely toxic

Maryaprude’s healing process seems to be slowing down; now that it is no secret that her ex husband already moved on so quickly.

Barely a year after they broke up – Willis seems to have forgotten what they shared and even has a child with new girlfriend; when Maryaprude who had been his wife for 2 years; has nothing to show from the relationship after losing her child during birth.

Well, it must be hard for the two of them but truth is, life has to move on with or without the pain; and hopefully this is something most fans are wishing on young Ms Prude who is still hurting.

Toxic relationship

For the first time in a while; Willis on Wednesday 18th shared a couple of videos having a good time with his new girlfriend; a move that seems to have triggered Maryaprude’s latest post.

Exes: Marya and Willis

From the videos, we observe Willis and Ivy Namu having the time of their lives while bowling; and although they are allowed to move on – the hard part is that Maryaprude on the other hand is yet accept the harsh reality.

Just to prove this, the lady shared a new post I believe explains her marriage to Willis Raburu. Her post read;

I remember when people used to gaslight me. I would;

  • Question my sanity
  • Apologize for things that weren’t my fault
  • Wonder if I got things mixed up
  • Blame myself
  • Trust others more than myself
  • pretend to agree
  • Force connection
  • Ask other people if I imagined things

And the last point which explains her current mental breakdown read;

  • Soothe the person who hurt me because they were mad that I was upset.

Clearly, Maryaprude is yet to accept that her relationship with Willis is over; and problem is, being bitter about it – won’t help her mental health either.

“I will fight when it comes to my son” Willis Raburu’s girlfriend issues warning to critics insulting month old baby

It’s no secret that Willis Raburu has already moved on with Ivy Namu; following his failed marriage with Maryaprude.

Although there are those who feel that Willis may have moved on abit too fast; all we can say is different people -different healing process; so why prosecute and his new family for their happy family?

Anyway seems like the bile targeted at Ivy Namu for ‘throwing herself’ at Willis; has now been redirected to her new born son who apparently is facing cruel comments from bitter fans.

Keep off my son

This was revealed by the month old boy’s mum (Ivy Namu) who has issued a stern warning to anyone who feels they can insult her baby. In a detailed post shared on her Instagram stories, Ms Namu wrote;

Willis Raburu introduces day old baby

I’m captain of the “don’t care what people say” battalion but when it comes to my son, I feel like fighting coz of how much it hurts.

She went on;

Social media has really given mean and bitter people confidence to talk shit about anyone or anything without shame or any shred of decency. Yaani grown folk take time out of their day to say shit about a baby it’s just so wild to me.

I know better

Well being a new mum and understanding the pain, sleepless nights, zombie mode lifestyle; and sacrifices she has made since her son’s arrival, I can promise you that Ivy is not joking about for her baby.

Anyway, with that out of her system Ivy Namu went on to conclude her post by saying;

And I know for a fact that such people can’t utter the same sentiments in person because they know they are on some bullshit.

And lastly,

Anyway, imma need to drop my habit of going through such nonsense even for once in a while. All it does is infuriate me and I know better than to engage such people. Haters gonna hate and potatoes gonna potate.
