Born Ruby Githui, known professionally as Le Rú formerly RU.BY just dropped a brand new single titled “Forbidden Fruit.”
This is the fast-rising singer, singer, songwriter, producer and creative director’s debut release under a new name and identity, Le Rú.
The delivery of Nairobi’s ‘sweet and spicy hummingbird’ is raw and persuasive on this upbeat alternative RnB rendition.

Le Rú first gained recognition after releasing her debut single “Why” in 2016 which was produced by popular beatmaker and artist, Blinky Bill. She then went on to collaborate with various artists within the Nairobi scene and perform at many different venues including the Africa Nouveau Festival in April, 2019 and the East Meets West Festival at Kampala, Uganda in August 2019, where she shared the stage with the likes of Oxlade, King Perryy, Irene Ntale, Mayorkun and more.
Self-described as the “Sweet and Spicy Hummingbird”, she finds freedom of expression when she sings, raps and writes her music which can be described as jazz and RnB with an African feel or simply Afro-soul/Afro-jazz.
