Life and career

Avril was born and raised in Nakuru, the former capital of the Rift Valley Province. She was very active in drama and music festivals while in high school. Avril later relocated to Nairobi to pursue an undergraduate education. In 2005, she partook in the Jaza Lorry initiative and met talent manager Emmanuel Banda of Ogopa Deejays Production. Although Banda tried convincing her to venture into music, Avril remained hesitant at the time. She enrolled at the University of Nairobi in 2006 and studied design. She changed her mind about music during her second year at UoN and recorded her debut single “Mama” after signing a record deal with Ogopa Deejays; the song was released in 2009 and sent to radio stations across Kenya. Avril was later featured on Colonel Mustapha’s “Mtaani dot com” (sometimes stylized as “mtaani.com”). The music video for “Mtaani dot com” was released and uploaded to YouTube on 15 October 2009.

Avril began to gain prominence following her collaboration with A.Y on his 2010 single “Leo” (Remix). Her collaborative single with Sudanese singer Lam, titled “Changes”, was released in Sudan. In November 2010, she was featured on Marya’s breakthrough single “Chokoza”; the song was released to critical acclaim and received numerous radio airplay. On 31 January 2012, Avril released her single “Kitu Kimoja”. The music video for the song was shot at a resort on the Kenyan coastline. In February 2013, Avril released “Hakuna Yule”. In January 2014, she debunked rumors regarding her exit from Ogopa Deejays and said the relationship she has with the label’s executives was built on understanding. In March 2014, Avril was featured on the chorus of Boomba Boyz’s 2014 single “Piga Kengele”. In July 2014, she performed at the Tusker Meru 7 After Party.
