For singer Avril, 2016 was a crazy rollercoaster ride because she lost her father and in quick succession, her fiancé left and her ride-or-die friends were nowhere to be seen when she needed them the most.

“ In 2016 a lot of the things in my life really changed because I lost my dad and around the same, same time the person I was supposed to get married to decides to bolt and I was like ‘What?!’ Just when you’re are trying to stand  up then you are given another jab and you have to just sit-down and go like, Good. Yeah.” She revealed on Ebru TV.

Away from her father’s death and her fiancé bolting for the hills her work required her attention. “At the same moment, my career was requesting me to be more serious because, of course, you always have to do better.”

Avril also revealed that her fiancé was not the only disappointing person during that difficult period.

“During my father’s funeral there were a lot of people I was expecting to be there for me, to support me and they weren’t so I was like ‘Kwani where are you guys? Where are you?’ and that is what inspired my song ‘Uko?’ ” She said before adding “Because so many times we believe that the people who are in the front seat, who are supposed to be clapping for you and holding on to us when you cry are people you expect to be there and then they are not. Uko was that question, where are you?”
