The family of popular Kenyan musician Esther Akoth is in mourning following the death of a loved one. The ‘Baby Daddy’ singer has lost her beloved grandfather, James Ogendi.

Akothee took to social media on Monday to break the sad news to her fans, who were all too familiar with Mr Ogendi. On numerous occasions, Akothee used social media to reveal her endearing relationship with her grandfather.

Slightly over two months ago, Akothee warmed netizens’ hearts when her ailing grandfather visited her after she fell sick.


But on Monday, she was reading from another script following his passing. While she did not reveal the actual cause of his death, she did eulogize him with glowing praise.

“I wanted to enjoy the little I have with you, that’s the reason I built my home next to you, my heart is directly connected to you, You are the only true husband in my life,” the singer said in the heart-wrenching post.

She added:  “I have been praying to God to give me strength to accept when nature calls. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH GRANDPA FARE THEE WELL OSIEPNA JAMES OGENDI.”
