Willis Raburu’s wife Marya changes name months after separation news

Celebrity relationships are tougher than most and one reason for that is the exposure that they go through on a daily basis.

This year, two couples that were pitch-perfect examples of marriage had tragic separations. Those couples are; Willis Raburu/Maryaprude and Ben Kitili/Amina Mude.

Amina confirmed the separation from Kitili dropping the bombshell on her social media page meanwhile the KTN news anchor has been silent on the whole affair.

A few months before this split, Raburu and his wife Maryaprude had been under the very same spotlight after news of their separation was made public.

The two still haven’t confirmed or denied the news but Marya took an extended hiatus from Instagram (a worrying sign in today’s world).

But it seems that Marya has gotten her groove back, making her first post in nearly 3 months. She did so while wishing her sister a happy birthday.

In the post shared on her account, Marya is seen clad in a pink top, blue jeans and completed the look with colourful pink rubber shoes. Her caption;

It’s my sisters birthday 👻👻👻 honestly lately I’ve been the small sister coz she’s had to hold the fort. We fought a lot when we were younger mostly coz we are so different but now I can never see my life without you.

One thing that keen observers will note about her Instagram page is what it now says in her bio. Instead of the name Marya Raburu that used to appear, Maryaprude is now her official name on the app.

While she might have taken time to get back to the app, Raburu has been like a rock and has gone with his normal routine posting like nothing was afoot.

Let’s not forget that what most likely started the downward trajectory for this happy couple was the loss of their baby in January this year.

Let’s hope that this couple can rekindle what was lost and start anew like the Biblical Job who lost all his children and later had the Lord bless him anew.

Raburu’s wife Marya Prude makes social media return after long absence

Willis Raburu and his wife Marya Prude had a 2020 that had already started badly – yes, that’s before we talk about Covid-19 that has generally screwed up people’s lives.

The couple announced that they had had a miscarriage on January 1, 2020, and one could tell from their subsequent Instagram posts that it would take a lot for them to heal from the ordeal.

The couple decided to take a trip to America for a one month holiday where it seemed like they could grieve in peace away from the glare of the public.

When they came back to Kenya, they came back with a renewed vigour and many thought that the couple was moving forward from the incident like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

And for a few months, we thought that things were going swimmingly until rumours started coming out that Willis and his wife were no longer living together.

The claim was that Marya had moved to Thindigua while Willis was dating a curvy Rwandan socialite who denied the allegation.

At that time of the scandal, it was noted that Marya had left Instagram with close to 100k followers, something many refer to nowadays as social media suicide.

After a few months of being away from the most used social media platform, it seems that she is back. A search on Instagram for her account showed that it was still active.

It is interesting to note that she is yet to change her name or her bio as she still refers to herself as Mary Raburu. Although she is back online, she has not added any new post to the account as her last post was shared 11 weeks ago.

Before Covid-19 came about and collectively karate chopped the world’s 2020 plans, Willis Raburu could honestly say he had already had a precursor of the terrible year we would have.

The Citizen TV news anchor lost his unborn baby girl on the first day of the year and things seem to have snowballed for him and his wife, Marya Prude.

Yesterday, the 10 over 10 presenter raised eyebrows after sharing a series of cryptic messages on relationships via his Insta-stories.

One of the themes of his many posts was leaving some things left unsaid no matter how bad you want to address them.

“As bad as you wanna address it somethings are better left unsaid,  I’m learning,” reads one of the messages.

He added, “Generally, arguing less occurs when she is less interested.”

The cryptic posts left many wondering if the TV presenter was indirectly touching on the allegations that were labelled against him and his wife.

The posts come a few weeks after Willis was accused of separating from his wife Marya. The rumours were first broken earlier this month with the presenter and his wife refusing to address the issue.

Kenyans On Twitter picked on him as the topic of discussion after a number of gossip pages alleged that the was no longer living together with his wife over cheating claims.

But the woman who Willis is alleged to have broken his marriage for came out to strenuously deny the claims.

“Hi everybody, I didn’t feel the need to reply to this lie, but I’m getting exhaustingly many DMs asking me about this and everyone deserves to know the truth. I want to let every Kenyan reading this that I don’t know the guy Twitter is portraying me to know. Thanks,” wrote Miva Noella.

And who was the person that Raburu had cheated on his wife with? According to social media users, a certain curvy beauty was the culprit. Her Instagram account name is Miva Noelle.

Many men took to social media to congratulate Raburu on the alleged lady that netizens claimed he had left his life for. Interestingly most didn’t seem to mind that a marriage was on the rocks and just lauded the 10 over 10 presenter who is still yet to respond to the reports.

But it turns out that the lady many had associated with being Raburu’s secret love doesn’t even know him. This was revealed by Edgar Obare who spoke to a close friend of the lady who is Rwandese and not Ugandan.

As seen on the screenshot shared by Obare, the lady reveals that she learnt about the story through friends who shared links to tweets claiming she was warming Willis Raburu’s bed!

At one point she even reveals that the situation got her stressed up as she had no control over it. She said; “I am crying right now everybody is sending me that. I don’t even know the guy.”

So that settles it.

Things fall apart

Raburu and Marya have had a rough 2020: On January 1st, the couple disclosed that they had suffered a miscarriage. The incident took such a toll on the couple that they had to travel abroad for one month where they had some time to recuperate.

How things have fallen since then is sad to see. I hope that they can work on their issues.

“Everyone is so quick to tell me about God… What they don’t know is that every way I knew Him was tested and He didn’t prove Himself. So as they say you should know God for yourself, I now can say, I don’t know Him. And I don’t think I want to know him coz He left me when I needed him the most,” wrote Mrs. Raburu.

Trust God – DJ Mo tells Willis Raburu after wife suffered miscarriage (exclusive)

DJ Mo and Size 8 were blessed with a baby boy in November 2019. This had followed the traumatic experience the year before in December 2018 when Size 8 miscarried.

Awww! Kenyans amazed after Size 8 and DJ Mo unveil face of their son

The resilience the couple showed after the tragedy was admirable. I recently spoke to DJ Mo and asked him how he had been able to move on from that dark period and what advice he had for people like Willis Raburu and his wife, Marya Prude who also suffered a painful miscarriage.

The Crossover 101 host explained that Raburu was a very close friend of his saying,

Raburu is a very good friend of mine. All I can tell him is to hold on tighter than before and trust in God as there is nothing much they can do. They have to make sure they get closer together in this period than they were before.

He also spoke about his own experience dealing with the miscarriage saying that they had moved on from the dark episode through prayer and getting closer than they were before.

You have to be tighter than before. That’s the secret. If you don’t you can break up as you will blame each other. A miscarriage can happen from so many things; from stress, drinking, going out. A myriad of things. People tend to break apart at such times.

DJ Mo also said that faith had a big part to play, saying that when talking about the vicissitudes of life, God was very integral in the couple moving on from the miscarriage.

He summarized the conversation by saying that the terrible experience had drawn the couple closer.

Willis Raburu and his wife Marya Prude have had a terrible start to the year. The couple suffered a miscarriage at the beginning of January that has shattered the peace and tranquility that the normally bubbly and lively Raburu emanates.

The couple has refused to speak to the media and who can blame them at such a time like this. That doesn’t mean that they haven’t been expressing their angst and pain. They have been doing so on their well-followed social media pages.

Ayana is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means a girl who has large eyes, and a girl who is perceptive. It is derived from the AIN-Y-N root (eyes), which is used in many places in the Quran. … Ayana is also an Ethiopian name for girls that means beautiful flower.

My beautiful daughter, some days are easy some days are so hard. Today I woke up trying to imagine what it would be like to watch you sleep, ( that’s the only image I have of you) what it be like you hold warm fingers, what a sleepless night would feel like. What it would be like to go to work tired Koz you kept me up at night, who you would look like now? what color of your skin? if you would drink as much milk as I did when I was your age. My daughter, you are an angel now, or so they tell me and when I look up to the sky sometimes I cry, sometimes I sometimes I laugh,I want you to make so much noise in heaven, or in the multi-verse you are in,I want you to have all your the people who are with you there say “Yeap that’s Willis’ child” I miss you so much, it’s funny that I have a picture of you but even before I look at it, your face is engrained in my heart, etched in my soul, tattooed in my very essence. My daughter, my sweet lovely beautiful daughter, I’m sorry that you have to see daddy weak and in grief and not the pillar of strength that you and your mother need, but my daughter, daddy loves you, since He listens to you talk to Him and tell Him, daddy doesn’t understand but daddy needs help. Rest In Palaces, RIP because you are royalty. 👼🏾👸🏾#QueenAdana

May the couple be able to move on from this tragedy.

Willis Raburu has not had a great start to his 2020 and largely because of the terrible news he delivered a few days ago. The news was that he and his wife had suffered a miscarriage.

Trust God – DJ Mo tells Willis Raburu after wife suffered miscarriage (exclusive)

The presenter even took time off from work and no one would begrudge him that liberty at such a time as this.  He had written,

‘God called our little baby angel home. We got into labor but there was some complications and a clot so we pushed out a stillbirth. My heart is completely broken. She is such a beautiful baby, now she is a beautiful angel. We were all waiting for a baby but God called her home. My angel Adana is on the other side now looking over us and we will do her proud,’ he stated.

However, some controversy was stirred after his wife Marya Prude, made some comments expressing her disappointment in God.

In a post seen by Classic105.com, Raburu said that it was okay for someone to be themselves when in pain, because it is the only way one can heal. ‘It’s ok to be you when you are in pain, I think that’s the only true way you will heal. The only true way I will heal!’ read the 10 over 10 host’s post.

But he was more open about another aspect of his life, his career. I asked him whether he missed working with Joey Muthengi his co-host on 10 over 10?

His response was that he did. He then went on to list many positive characteristics about his former colleague, saying,

Joey has an amazing work ethic. She takes her job very seriously in terms of research. Basically I am a guy of winging it, I am a spontaneous guy but Joey will not only research but also go deep into stuff. Even after the show she will stay on to make sure that things are o.k. We had good chemistry.

I also asked him which drugs he was taking to be able to do all the shows he does in one day? Willis who is bubbly hilariously responded that it was the Holy Spirit who gave him the energy, and I believe him.

The man also admitted that he sleeps for 4-5 hours a day. He said that the punishing schedule does take a toll on him after some time and that he has to take time away from the office to decompress and rest. ‘The first 3 days when I am on leave I switch everything off and just sleep. I also meditate for about an hour,’ Willis confided.

Stillbirth is the delivery, after the 20th week of pregnancy, of a baby who has died.

 

Raburu shared a tear-jerking story of his WhatsApp, explaining what happened, while thanking those who supported him and his wife through the journey including her fitness trainer, Alvin.

Alvin, my brother, There is no easier way to say this. God called our little baby angel home. We got into labor but there were some complications and a clot so we pushed out a stillbirth.

My heart is completely broken, she is such a beautiful angel. I want to thank you for all the support during this time for the comfort and the love, for getting Mary fit and ready she did so well at labor. We are trying to be strong but we are absolutely devasted. I know it will be hard even for Nessy when she hears the sad news but tell her to take heart as well,’ he wrote in part.

What he also has is a wonderful support system, in his beautiful wife, Marya Prude.

The two have been married for two years.

In that time I will admit something incredibly rare, that we in the media haven’t reported even one single scandal about them!

Marya Prude recently shared an image of herself on her Instagram page.

In the photo, she was rocking a baggy red hoody. The photo has caused some rumours to swirl which I will not mention in this esteemed site but her poem about Willis is what touched me.

Even poet laureate Dennis Itumbi would be envious of the prose and the inflection in her wonderful message.

Read it below;

I have never met a man that I wanted to be his wife
And then he came along, it’s so natural to make a life
‘Cause he’s a perfect compliment, ’cause I’m a boss in my world
But when we’re together, he just makes me feel like his girl
He’s givin’ me love, so steady
He touches my heart, now I’m ready
He touches my soul and my spirit
He’s givin’ me love, so steady (love me so steady)”
#steadylove❤️

Man, that poem made my eyes tear. That is love. Willis told Kalekye in an interview that he was smitten with Marya Prude from the very first time he laid his eyes on her, he was still dating Sally Mbilu then.

“We met in church, at Jubilee Christian Church through my friend Pablo. He introduced me and when I saw her, l was like good Lord hallelujah. But even though I noticed her fineness, I did not do anything as I was still in a relationship. About a year passed by after we met. After my break up, I reached out to her. I was very sceptical so I teased her a little. She would reach out to me and I just did not reply. This was because I wanted to know whether she loved Willis the TV guy or just Willis. I cancelled dates like four times,” said Raburu.

Aren’t you too old? Willis Raburu defends hosting teen show 10 over 10

Willis Raburu is a man at the top of his game currently. The Citizen T.V host enjoys the fame and fortune he has because of some of the aspects of his character.

What is that? His hard work and diligence. These traits have seen him become an anchor on the station and not only that, he also hosts the popular 10 over 10 show. But there are some critics who are unhappy with Willis hosting the latter.

Willis Raburu

The reason; He is too old for the segment’s demographic, a criticism that Willis has been reluctant to deal with…up to now. The media practitioner explained in a detailed Facebook post, that ever since he was a kid, he knew journalism was his first love.

He said;

You see I had always dreamed from when I was a young boy of hosting a show, when I was 7 years old I would read to my mum the newspaper.

Willis said that when he was in university, his passion was so deep that he even charged people KSh 30 to attend a show he single-handedly came up with. He explained;

When I joined campus I revived it, the people of Moi University, main campus, remember WAYNE LIVE, a show I would charge 30 bob entry fee.

Check out this TBT photo of Willis Raburu that has everyone talking

He then got blessed with the opportunity to have a T.V job on Citizen T.V that catapulted him to the public spotlight but Willis wasn’t satisfied still. His desire to host a T.V show hadn’t abetted and when he got the opportunity to host 10 over 10, he took it gladly!

That move fulfilled his deepest desire and now he is at peace, something he is happy with despite the criticism that he has refused to grow up.

His multi-dimensional career and work-ethic reminds me of American entertainer, Michael Strahan. The former NFL player has parlayed his popularity from the game into various gigs.

He went ahead to thank all the fans for all the love- hate relationship during the 3 years that he has hosted the show.

To the fans this is what he had to say,

I want to thank all of you for the support and the love and yes even the hate,

all of it serves to keep us on our toes and to help deliver a better product each Friday.

Well that wasn’t all, the TV personality had something to tell his ex-co host Joey Muthengi who quit the station last year.

To her Willis wrote;

To @joeymuthengi Im glad this show connected us my friend, you held it down 💯 Thanks for being super amazing.

It would be remiss if I don’t thank the amazing team behind us. Starting with the management at RMS.

What you see is just the final product but it’s the team, that works behind the scenes and with us late into the night that makes us look good!

Once again thank you to all our fans. Remember God loves you and that will NEVER change, and Successful people look like YOU! Wabebeeeeeee!!!

As his ex co host Joey left the show, she went to her social media and penned a message to her fans as she explained her leaving the station and the show.

Her post read;

Tonight I laughed, cried, danced…sometimes at the same damn time 😀 Thanks for tuning in to my final 10/10 show. Still hasn’t sunk in yet. So many emotions. Like who cries on national TV??… 😅😅😅

Finally felt like I could give my natural hair a chance to shine tho (Had shaved my head bald a few weeks before I got my job at Citizen btw 😄 – fun fact)…talk about things coming full circle!

All in all I’m SO thankful for the opportunity. Looking forward to the future. Trusting that the God I serve got there waaay before me and is now preparing my path to the next chapter.

Thanks a mil for the ❤. Watch this space…Cause HE ain’t done with me yet 🙌🏼. Can I get an Amen?
