Avril ends troubled relationship with South African boyfriend

After repeatedly denying it, songstress Avril (real name Judith Nyambura) and her South African fiancé, Leslie Mugadza, have called it quits.

In an interview with local blog, Mpasho, the singer said she and Leslie have taken some time off and that the future of their relationship remains uncertain.

“We have taken some time off because I had so much to deal with. I don’t know if we are going to carry on with our plans and all these arrangements because so much happened in the beginning of the year. I don’t know if it is going to happen,” Avril said during the interview.

The pair have had a roller coaster relationship that has often led to speculation in the media of an imminent breakup.

In 2015 interview with Radio Citizen, Avril revealed that the cultural differences between her and her fiancé were the main reason she had not walked down the aisle with him.


“The wedding will not be that soon. He is Zulu and I am Kikuyu and there are some cultural things involved in the entire process,” Avril said at the time.

In February this year, photos of Avril’s fiancé spending Valentine’s Day with Namibian beauty Delish Mathews went viral and sparked fresh rumors that the two had split.

But even with the exposure of the photos, the South African denied accusations of cheating on Avril.

A month later, the songstress suffered the loss of her father who had been recovering from a massive heart attack.

Then in April, Avril, in another radio interview, dismissed reports that she and her boyfriend had broken up.

However, in her latest interview, the singer clearly says that she doesn’t want to be put in a situation where she is handling emotional issues.
