#Ifikiewazazi I was booed by parents – Pregnant Avril opens up

I remember clearly being booed...

Singer Avril has opened up about a public appearance that ended up with her being booed by parents.

The pregnant singer disclosed that during a certain awareness campaign she tried asking some parents if they knew what their teens are up to when they are not with them and that resulted to her being booed as the parents couldn’t take it.

“I remember asking some parents whether they knew what their teens are up to during a certain awareness campaign and they were so hell-bent against it and I remember clearly being booed and for some reason, I thought the event was serving spoilt milk by the looks on people’s faces…cause I wasn’t a parent (yet I probably spend more time with teens being in the entertainment space than they ever would do)…I’ll never understand, oh how people love to use that card. Haya #ifikiewazazi sasa. I’ll probably be lynched for that statement nishazoea save it.”


This confession was spurred by the #ifikiewazazi  hashtag where Kenyans are sharing photos of teenagers who have taken risqué photos as a way of exposing the teenagers’ wayward behaviour to their parents. A hashtag Avril believes is in bad taste.

The singer who has been a victim of having her private pictures exposed believes that instead of exposing the youth and participating in cyberbullying, we should guide them as the world can be hard to navigate when you are young.

“You have an obligation as an adult to steer any if not every young person you meet towards responsibility. The frustration and ugliness you have gone through are lessons that can always hold a person’s hand…So instead of the shaming and cyberbullying through #ifikiewazazi jiulize maswali kiasi especially kama you are over 21.”
