Popular reggae disc jockey DJ Lastborn dies at 43
Popular reggae DJ Benson Ogweno Ouma known by his stage name DJ Lastborn, is dead.
Lastborn died in his sleep on Friday February 3, his sister Lillian Anyango confirmed.
The founder member of Supremacy Sounds had been ailing for some time. He suffered two strokes - first one in 2017 and another one two years later. This had impaired his speech and sight.
"I have been taking care of him and there had been tremendous improvement,” Anyango is quoted by one local publication as saying.
DJ Lastborn was found unresponsive in his bed early Friday morning.
“It is painful to lose my brother but I believe it was God’s will. Let him rest. He will no longer be in pain. His time had come,” added Lillian.
The departed DJ's colleague at Supremacy Sounds DJ Simple Simon said: "Rest in peace, DJ Last Born. My friend, my teacher, and my musical partner. I was lucky enough to meet you shortly after high school at Hollywood club and our connection through music was instant.
"You taught me how to DJ and together we created Supremacy Sounds. Your impact on my life and our shared passion will never be forgotten. You will always be remembered as a true talent and a dear friend. RIP, my friend."
His body is at Jocham Funeral Home in Mombasa.
