Judith Nyambura Mwangi or as many know her, Avril has been in the news the past week after Naiboi re-ignited bitter memories about her refusing to feature on his song 2 in 1.
The back and forth has been very entertaining for most of us who love the pettiness but it seems that the mother of one wants to move on from the affair.
In an interview with one of Kenya’s radio stations, the musician explained that she was still nursing wounds days after giving birth and therefore didn’t see the need to jump on the project, despite promising to do so.
“From my understanding nilimnyima video ya 2in1. So I had just delivered my baby and I was in recovery mode. So Naiboi akanitumia message akaniambia “Hey is it possible for you, (lakini siwezi indicate sana lakini no one knew I was in recovery) to do a video for me, I said yes. Sasa mimi nafikiria hii video nafaa kufanya in like a week, so me I thought ni kitu kama ya one week and I will be ready to do, mdogo mdogo two hours later anashinda akituma messages ile video niaje, Kesho ile video, aiish Dude!!! “
“So me si kurespond , I didn’t say anything, Nilijiambia tu kwa akili yangu I don’t need this kind of pressure right now niko na enough issues. Nafikiria venye nitapumbia maziwa mtoto wangu, hata kuketi ilikuwa shida, alafu mtu bado anataka niende nifanye make-up nikafanye video. So when I said I did not feel like doing it, it was true, I was not in that space, so beef ikaanza hapo. So the next thing naskia kwa radio akisema Avril and Victoria Kimani refused to be in the video. Hiyo ni story ya 2018. So January 8th, naamka nimetagiwa kwa post ya Naiboi, I’m looking for a female artiste na tafadhali msinitajie Avril? Are we still on this? So mi sijui bado nimekasirikiwa, aiii! A kwende. Makasiriko ya 2018 tusilete 2020.”
Her explanation comes days after Naiboi, shared a video saying that he wanted to do a collabo with a female artiste except for Avril.
Naiboi’s 2 in 1 was an all celebrity video that saw media personalities and musicians record short clips on phone that were later combined to make a full video.
