Another local musician dies

23 February 2015, 16:20 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - The music industry is in mourning after the announcement of the death of rapper Bobby Slic Otieno.

Attributed as being one of the first rappers to come out of Kibera to attain national fame, Bobby Slic made his name known with his unique rap skills. His sudden death comes as a shock to many who have worked with him, notably Kayvo K-force and the king of rap Octopizzo.

In a touching message, Octopizzo sent his condolences to the fallen rappers family via facebook. The message read “RIP BOBBY SLIC OF K FORCE1st Guyz to Rep Kibera Hard Before I followed their footsteps. Gone to Soon. Life is too short out in these Streets.#RIP #MUSICLIVES.”

Last year was a year filled with loss in the music industry with promising talents like Peter Kabere passing away. Many hope that this year will be a far better year for the industry, and pass their condolences to the family of the fallen rapper.

The death comes just a few weeks after the passing of Kalenjin musician Junior Kotsetsas.
