“I joined this industry not looking to be a role model per say, if what I do inspires you in a certain way with how I take my life, take it and learn from it. But I’m not in the industry to be anyone’s role model.”

This comes weeks after many witnessed the likes of Mulamwah’s among other get bashed by keyboard warriors; for not living up to their expectations.

Comedian Mulamwah even opted to call it quits as he could not handle the criticism and name calling from fans.


Having joined the entertainment industry at the age of 18 years, Avril says she has lived it all! She has not only been criticized but abused  to a point where all this became normal.

During her interview the lady opened confirming that she was now used to being bullied but for the 12 years in the industry; Avril has learnt to be herself and not a virtual version created by people in their heads.

“I got into the limelight when I was 18 years old as a second year at Nairobi University when my career just started. So I literally grew up under public scrutiny. Through that journey I have been able to pick vital lessons here and there. Growing up under such scrutiny has taught me to just live my life, especially as a female artiste.”


She went on to add saying;

As a female artiste in the limelight, the scrutiny, the comments, the remarks, the decisions you are supposed to be making as a woman will break you. You will get to appoint where you will question many things,
