Rest assured, we are working diligently behind the scenes to come back BIGGER AND BETTER than ever. Stay tuned for updates on our return! We love you and appreciate you so much."


Raburu joined TV47 in 2023, in a move that excited his fans. On Aug 22, he informed fans that he was about to herald a new thing.
