I’ll make the traditional wife – singer Avril
Kenyan top female singer, Avril, has disclosed she is convinced she will make a very good wife; thanks to her respect for traditional roles women play in society.
Speaking to Tanzania’s Bongo5.com, the Nikimuona hitmaker said her celebrity status does not make her any better, hence does not prevent her from getting into the kitchen to cook for her family.
“I know how to cook – and I cook so well! You know most people think if one is an artiste she is a diva, doesn’t know how to cook, clean utensils… I’d say I am the purple wife,” she said.
Too much work without play makes Avril a dull lady – the mellow-voiced artiste also opened up about her craze for Candy Crush Saga.
For those who are not familiar with the game, it is very popular on Android-operated devices.
What one needs to do is just line up three identical candies (horizontally or vertically) to make them disappear and accumulate scores.
Avril said: “I like to play Candy Crush a lot! I play it every day. There are people who know I am fascinated by Candy Crush because I always post my score levels on Instagram.”
She added: “I have to play it before going to bed. It’s not like I am addicted to it, but if I fail to play in a particular day I will feel something is not right.”
Taking us back to her secondary school days, the St Joseph’s Girls Nsambya Kampala, Uganda alumnus said she was the head prefect –unlike most school ‘cops’, she was loved.
“I was the head girl in high school. I used to guide my fellow students on what was expected out of them. I could even punish them if they did not go by the school rules documented. However, I don’t think I was such a high-handed kind of head girl; most students loved me big time!”
Avril recently was in Tanzania to popularise her new song, Ningefanyaje, which she has featured Tanzanian musician, Ben Pol.
