Very few Kenyan musicians have succeeded in producing informative and educative hit songs in the country. Longombas did it. VUTA PUMZ was about HIV and AIDS. It spoke of PROTECTING oneself, and then talked aganist stigma.

Christian Longomba, one-half of the popular Longomba duo that dominated Kenyan airwaves in the early 2000s, has passed on, reports say.

Christian died on Saturday, March 13, in Los Angeles, USA, with his sister Jessy Jones breaking news of his passing through a Facebook post.

According to Jones, Christian, who was fighting a recurrent brain tumor, succumbed at around 7 p.m. His brother, Prophet Lovy, was at his bedside.

Lovy who runs a successful gospel ministry in UK took to Facebook, posting: “To be absent from the body is to be present with The Lord. I love you Christian,My brother, my friend & partner but Jesus loves you more. Enjoy Heaven.”

Meanwhile, veteran Kenya rapper Nonini took to Twitter shortly after news broke, his Tweet saying Christian’s contribution to the Kenyan music industry would never be forgotten.
