‘I joined the industry as a musician not anyone’s role model,’ singer Avril says

Singer Avril says people should not call her their role model.
Speaking on a Youtube channel with Ala C, the mother of one said she is nobody’s role model.

‘I did not join the industry to be anyone’s role model. I wanted to be a musician. If amid my journey you were inspired by my journey, take that. Anything else leave it. I am just living my life’, she said.

Speaking about her childhood journey, Avril said she credits her life to her late dad.
‘I credit my life to my late dad. He hustled for me and he would not sleep.
 I went to school and he supported me and even when I started singing, I extended that to my younger brother by educating him.’

The probable reason Diamond was treated like a hero by a doting Zari last week!

She added that although her dad was strict, he blessed her when she told him she wanted to venture into music.
My dad was so strict and even explaining to him was not easy. I had to sit him down but he told me to do music wholeheartedly. It gave me the morale to get that blessing from my dad.’
‘I do not want to fail my family. I work as much as possible to make it comfortable for my child. I want to be the most discipline-oriented mother.’

She said that as an artiste, she was forced to reconstruct since there was no show after corona came. She has been surviving on online business.

‘Social media trolls can lead into depression,’ Singer Avril speaks out

Singer Avril says her toughest journey in life was joining music.

Speaking to ‘Reke Ciume na ene’ the Chokoza hitmaker says that being brought up in a loving family setup, it was tough to face the cruel world of social media. She said that if one is not careful, they can end up falling into depression.

‘But when you join the world of music, technology evolved and social media came. Social media users can cause you to fall into depression if you are not of a strong mind and strong-hearted.’

She added that there are comments that are too personal and can make you just quit.
‘Imagine you go in the studio, and it’s not that we are not gifted in voices, you spent your night recording a song and you don’t have any coin, left so that you can respond to the pressure. If you only know how much we spend on these songs. Imagine you do all that and announce on your social media that you will release a song, they comment so badly ati ‘wewe bado huwa unaimba?’ you have not even released, but they have started insulting you. They will tell you to quit. Some are genuine but by the time you get to a mental space to handle that pressure, its not easy.

She added;
‘It’s not just about the trolls but the industry itself coz there is no positive competition. During our times, we could be told that our music could not be played. But you wake up and say, this is what God has instilled in me.
The worst troll that hurt me I can’t say it here. But I just block those haters.
What keeps her going is knowing that there is nothing else she is supposed to do.

‘I tell myself if I do not sing, I will not pay my bills.’
She is releasing an album today titled ‘Spirit’.

‘I did not join the industry to be anyone’s role model,’ Avril says

Avril has been in the music industry for over ten years.

That means she has seen the bright and the dark side of being a celebrity.

However, she is a strong woman and she says she is no longer concerned with what people think about her.

Speaking on K24 TV with Betty Kyallo, she says having known how the social media streets are, she is happy.

“If what I do inspires you, then take it and learn but I am not in the industry to be anyone’s role model,” she said.

She added;

“I have grown under the limelight but my parents were very close to me. They taught me how to handle myself and ofcourse I had a good foundation. I am just enjoying my life. If I chose to be private please lemmi be, its what I have chosen.”

The mother of one says that before she came to realisation of living her life, she was so worried of what was said and was written about her.

“Growing up in a lot of scrutiny has taught me to just live my life especially as a female artiste.

Sometimes the comments about you on social media as a woman will break you, if you do not have a strong support system back home, you will break.

I used to worry so much what people are saying about me but nowadays, any negativity, I block them in my space and move on.”


‘Something was missing in my life,’ Avril speaks about dating this one person

Singer Avril has for the first time opened up about her love life.

Well, in a recent interview, Avril explained how hard it was for her to accept a man in her life.

Avril says that the death of her father made her not trust anyone and before she accepted her baby daddy into her life, she had to question and be sure that he was the right man for her.

In the interview on Adelle Onyango’s podcast, Legally Clueless, the mother of one says she locked out many who wanted to date her.

“I questioned every person who came into my life claiming to love me. I locked out so many people.

I think grieve gives you so much, it is like a sieve because you are very conscious of anyone coming into your life and the reason they are coming into your life.

She added that she locked herself into a space where she didn’t want any human interaction.

“To a good EXTENT it helped me. its so weird but it fueled me back into the industry and that is when I did so much work and then again,” she said.

It was then she realised that something else in her life was missing.

 “I wanted something else away from my career. I decided to Date this one person.

I do have someone, I have a love interest in my life right now and we have a beautiful son but still, I go back to questions so much,” she added.

Because of the character she developed of questioning, Avril says many are the times she quarrels with her baby daddy.

“I keep on questioning so much about even the love, care, concern, how someone can just be unconditional with you. How does unconditional love works, how does one love without conditions?

I am understanding that through the love that I have for my son, I can say he broke a very expensive vase that I have had since my dad passed on,” she said.

Avril has for long been rumoured to be in a relationship with music video director J Blessing. The two are said to be madly in love.

After months of keeping their relationship a secret, singer Avril came out to publicly declare her love to music director J Blessing, on his birthday this week.

Avril posted on Instagram a series of pictures capturing her and J Blessing.

The pictures were all accompanied by sweet messages.

“Happy Birthday . Thanking God for you ,” wrote Avril.

‘Was I supposed to grow young?’ Avril responds to trolls

When Avril said she knows how to shade on these IG streets, she meant her words.

The mother of one recently shared photos of herself which elicited so many comments from her fans.

Most of them appreciated her beauty but ofcourse there were others who thought she is no longer pretty.

“You are becoming old.”

This is not the first time fans have been harsh on her.

Recently Avril has asked online users to stop being harsh on people who wear makeup.

Taking to Instagram, the mother of one shared a few photos of herself without makeup.

“Stop shaming girls and guys going through the ups and downs of having problematic skin who chose or want to wear makeup,” she wrote.

In a past interview, Avril said she has very sensitive skin. This comes barely a week after she posted photos of herself with well-done makeup and fans asked her to fire her makeup artist.

Avril said she no longer has the energy to respond to negativity.

“You all know I know how to shade on these IG streets, but gosh, that kathiing is just gone like the wind,” she said.

A while back, Avril trended for a whole day after she shared her photo without makeup.

She was her way of telling the world to mind its own business.

But the world is not very good at minding its own business, something that Avril found out after posting the picture.

“Society has its misgivings and I don’t blame them. I have learnt to accept the fact human beings will be human beings,” she said

“Just by me taking a picture of myself not having makeup and struggling with acne, I was insulted for an entire day nonstop by people I don’t know and probably will never meet, women and men alike. I think everyone is entitled to their opinion and ‘perfection is the disease of a nation.’”

What were some of the reactions she received from posting the no make-up selfie?

“I was trending the whole day because I was wearing no make-up and some people thought I looked hideous while others actually thought I looked prettier. Everyone has been a doctor on my timeline this past weekend, something that I have experienced for the past decade of my life,”she said.

He was actually present during my delivery although he was not allowed into the delivery room.

My baby daddy is very responsible and very present in my sons’s life, the reason why I keep him private is because I do not feel like it’s necessary.”

She adds

“My ex (Leslie Mugadza) loved having our love life publicized that is why our relationship was public otherwise I love keeping my life private.

If you don’t agree can you tell me how many boyfriends I have dated?

It was his way of telling everybody ‘she is mine’. 

He was a foreigner and he felt us putting our relationship out to the public gave him some form of security, because everyone would know we are dating.”
