However, the singer is now back on TV as she appeared Sunday morning on Rauka.

Karwirwa who was happy to pass the mantle back announced that she would be going on a break and coming back to continue with Bambika.

Ba-bye #Rauka! It's been an amazing honor holding the fort for @kambuamuziki 🙏🏽 I'll be taking a short break and from there we continue to interact on #Bambika, Gospel Sunday. Thank you so much for your continued support and love 🙏🏽🙂,” read Karwirwa’s post.

Kambua’s Break

Kambua took a social media break on February 15, following the sudden demise of her new born baby named Malachi Manundu Muthiga Mathu.

On May 28, 2021, she made a comeback saying love had lifted her from a place of deep pain and despair.

“I am so blessed to be a mother of two adorable boys; one who's here giving me the best cuddles, and another in heaven, who I'll one-day hold again. Jesus and I are going to have to co-parent on this one. As for my broken heart, I know that someday I will meet Jesus, and it will be made whole,” read her statement in part.

The Untimely Demise

Kambua and her husband Jackson Mathu lost their son in February 2021. The late Malachi was Kambua’s second born son.

Kambua shared the sad news on February 15, 2021, saying doctors tried their best to save the young Malachi but all was in vain.

What a privilege it has been carrying a life yet again. My little baby boy Malachi made a grand entrance into the world a few days ago. He was everything we hoped for, and more, much more. Perfect in every way. Malachi knew how much he was loved, and so he did all he could to stay with us. With the help of a most dedicated team of doctors & nurses, our little baby fought, until Jesus healed him by taking him to Himself. Malachi is now free from pain, and any worldly care. Our tears fall freely because our hearts are broken beyond words.

But our faith and hope remains unshaken because we have our trust in a dependable God. A good, good Father. We may not know how to navigate the days ahead, but God does. And so we trust Him, a moment at a time. Malachi Manundu Muthiga Mathu. You were deeply loved, and will forever be remembered. Your Father, your mommy, and your brother Nathaniel, will carry you in our hearts always 💛💛💛

Please allow us some time to process all of this, we will respond to your calls and messages in due time” reads Kambua’s announcement.
