Avril explained why she agreed to be a video vixen for Diamond Platnumz’ single Kesho. In an interview with Kiss FM’s Chito for the Maloko Show, Avril also talked about her new exciting music project featuring A Pass, and her life in the public eye.

The song has already become an online favourite in just three weeks.

Avril said that after starring in Diamond’s song, she has maintained a friendship with him. Before she releases a song, she seeks Diamond’s approval, because she values it so much, but made it clear their relationship is all music-based.

She said: “Everyone thought Diamond and I dated and others thought I was now a video vixen, but it was all music, and even up to date, we chat. I send him a track before I release a song because I value his opinion.”

Avril said she could not understand why the Kenya Wildlife Board picked a Ugandan musician, Eddy Kenzo, as their brand ambassador.

She said: “In my music, I always try and paint the picture of Kenya, and so as a Kenyan, I would be best placed to show appreciation of the country, as compared to an outsider, who doesn’t even speak Kiswahili. I hope one day they will use a Kenyan to represent Kenya.
