Raila Junior married Yvonne Wambui back in 2011 at a colorful wedding ceremony that was graced by top names from various sectors of the Kenyan economy. She is the daughter of retired music boss, Gido Kibukosya.
In 2019, Junior narrated how the early years of their marriage were frustrating as they made attempts to have a child and nothing was forthcoming.
After five years of trying, lady luck struck and they got a first born son.
“I hope she (Yvonne) will allow me to disclose this. We had been married for a long time and we weren’t able to get a child in the very first years. We struggled for a very long time for about four, five years and eventually God blessed us with our firstborn a son,”

“Yvonne and I were so okay not being able to conceive for those years, but the frustrations became unbearable because of the pressure from outside. I also tried so hard not to subject Yvonne to more pressure because of the situation,” said Raila Junior.
