Kenyan musician Akothee and her family are in mourning period after the loss of her beloved grandfather James Ogendi. She took to social media to share the news with her fans and share some memories of her grandfather.
Sometime back in August, Akothee revealed that her grandfather was very ill but he made the effort to come see her the moment he felt all was not well with Akothee. This selfless action warmed the hearts of many.
Akothee eulogized her grandfather with this post:
