Kenyan musician Avril has released her frustrations on Kenyans after her newly released song performed poorly on YouTube.
Avril who has been missing in action for more than a year accused Kenyans of showing love to artists only when they die.
Apparently Avril’s song ‘Danger’ that was released two days ago has only garnered 18k views on YouTube.
“Don’t worry, when I die, the songs I’ve done over time will trend at least for a while. Maybe even get love. Never worry. Thank you for the post, the mockery and the love,” Avril wrote.
The song Danger features artist Brandy Maina.
Kenyan fashion designer Nimrod Nick has in the meantime asked his fans to support the musician reminding them that she used to produce hit songs before.
He also tried to explain Avril’s absence from the music industry citing motherhood.
“You all need to give Avril her flowers bwana, you can’t just do Avril like that. She has a new song featuring Brandy Maina. Go check it out and support a girl bana. She gave you all hit songs kitambo. Support her, she is the crème de la crème of our music industry. I know Avril will be back on her feer soon enough…I feel that motherhood came along and overwhelmed her because it is a whole job on its own. Please stream her music and support her,” Nimrod said.
Avril hit limelight with her song ‘chokoza’ which featured Marya.
