“I am therefore going to be taking a short break from work and my duties at Hot 96Citizen TV and 10 Over 10 to allow for my wife and I to get through the motions.

“While I am away several people will be holding for me, the shows will go on. I want to thank them in advance for heeding the abrupt call to action. I want to say thank you for those in the know who continue to lift my wife and me in prayer and ask that you continue to do so up until the time,” Raburu continued.

He has however promised to back on the screens and airwaves as soon as he can.

“I will be back on your screens and on your radio! I love you all, you make me who I am. See you soon. Successful people look like you! Wabebee!” he added.

Raburu and Marya Prude have been married for three years now. They kept the news of her pregnancy under hashed tones.
