The song was catchy, humorous and in Kikuyu. It was amazing how famous this song got as the lyrics and content of the song were quite shallow. Calling a fat lady ‘Momo’ is something that can cause an international mayhem but in our lovely land of Kenya, had many women embracing their full figures and proudly owning their large frames. Now it is quite sad to know that the singer of the song has come to his untimely demise. Murimi had been admitted in hospital earlier this year after suffering from a chronic disease. It is not yet clear what he succumbed to but unconfirmed reports about Murimi wa kahalf’s death emerged from social media and have been spreading for the better part of Thursday evening.
What is most shocking is Murimi’s last Facebook post which somewhat looks like he had a premonition of his death. Shocked fans have been milling with condolescents posts on his Facebook page. The cause of his death is however not known.
At Varcity we are saddened by the news and wish his family, friends and fans strength to go through this tough times. RIP.
