How Did April Gain Fame?
In 2017, April became a social media sensation as her fans waited for a long time to watch the reticulated giraffe give birth to Tajiri, her son.
This video was viewed by 1.2 million people and almost 800,000 people watch the Facebook Live video feed.
The name for her son was a consequence of an online contest for two weeks. Tajiri means hope and confidence in Swahili.
Tajiri now has a new female companion whose name is Johari , which means Jewel in Swahili.
A new naming contest will kick start soon for April’s new baby as well.
