Under music production company Johari Cleff, Bruce Odhiambo was responsible for a number of music videos and hits.
Also due to his close friendship with President Uhuru Kenyatta, Bruce was gazetted as the Youth Enterprise Development Fund Chairman before he resigned in 2016.
Mr Odhiambo is reported to have developed complications after coming back from treatment in India, back in November 2018.
He had flown to India in October to replace his pacemaker. This is an electrical device implanted under the skin to help manage irregular heartbeats.
On Saturday 5 January, he suffered a cardiac arrest and had to be put on life support and on Sunday his blood pressure fell to a low of 54, causing his family to be called for counseling and prayer.
“It has, however, risen again marginally to 112 and we hope it will stabilize…He’s really put up a good fight. So, please let’s keep praying for his recovery. Today, he is still in a bad state and the BP is down again (44)…The only thing that’s keeping even the nurses hopeful is the fact that he’s still conscious and they’ve given him everything to the maximum till they can’t go beyond the current limits…We keep praying.” the source added.
However he lost the fight at 7am 7th January 2019.
He breathed his last at midnight that night.
Bruce posted a message on his Instagram months before his death.
“Good Morning. Life isn’t meant to be easy, it’s meant to be lived.”
Adding, “Sometimes happy, other times rough… But with every up and down you learn lessons that make you strong.”
