Another star gone too soon

15 April 2014, 15:00 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - Mashifta rapper and star, G-Wiji passed on about a week ago with his body having been at the city mortuary for more than a week before his family was notified.

According to sources, he was allegedly killed in a hit and run here in Nairobi and was identified through his documents.

Most of you with a background in music might remember him for his sick rhymes and the depth of his message through his songs.

He is famed for songs like PesaPombeSiasanaWanawake, Mashairi and System yaMajambazi and will be mourned by the entire industry as he was one of the pioneers of underground hip hop.

This seems to be a dark month for the music fraternity with the loss of the gospel star Kaberere, which was followed soon after by the death of Kambua’s father and now G-Wiji.

Wiji was set to make a comeback this year but that was not meant to be. May he rest in peace.

In his memory, and for those of you who are still unsure as to who he really is, check out his video here
