You were to walk me down the aisle – Avril pays tribute to late dad
Celebrated Kenyan singer Avril Nyambura has been offline for some time now since the passing of her dad.
However, the Nikimuona hit-maker took to one of her social media pages and penned an emotional tribute to her late father, saying how much she will miss him.
“Dad, I’m going to miss you so much but I know you are going to be with me through everything like you always were… I know your spirit will be with us and we will see it in the generations to come,” wrote Avril.
In the heartfelt tribute, singer Avril also wrote that she will follow the lessons, values, hunger for the hustle and principles taught to her by her late father.
“You were to walk me down the aisle, see your grandchildren but your destiny was different,” she added.
Avril ended the tribute by saying; “I will always love you and we will never stop smiling and sharing the love that you taught us to always have for one another. Rest now. I know it’s all better now. Rest now … RIP.”
She also took time to thank the people who stood by her and her family during the trying moment.
“Saying thank you is not enough… I am so grateful to so many people who have genuinely stood by my mother, brother and sister.”
“To my friends that I count as family because of what you did today and have been doing for the past two months, thank you, thank you, thank you. May your cups overflow with blessings upon blessings and may your hearts’ desires be fulfilled beyond measure,” she wrote.
Avril’s dad reportedly succumbed to a heart attack at his Nairobi home on Tuesday (22nd March 2016).
A few weeks ago, the Mama singer’s dad was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at a Nairobi hospital. His condition improved and was thus discharged.
