Kenyans mourn legendary musician Ayub Ogada
Legendary musician Job Seda, popularly known as Ayub Ogada, has died.
The artiste known for popular songs such as Koth Biro, Obiero, Ondiek, and many other top hits is said to have died in Kisumu on Friday evening.
He was 63 years old.
Kenyans took to social media to express their grief and send messages of condolence to his family, friends and fans.
“Ayub Ogada, respect Wuod Luo! You are the reason I picked up Nyatiti. Thank you for sharing this fantastic 8 strings instrument with the world. I celebrate you! Rest in Power,” musician Suzanna Owiyo said.
Patricia Kihoro, an actress and radio presenter said: “Once, when I was a more fearless artist, I got to jam with Ayub Ogada. What we shared then, several artists being open, vulnerable and free has always stuck with me. He spoke strongly about his energy, about trusting his gut and his instinct and I never forgot that. Thank you.”
“Ayub Ogada was a big inspiration to me, he really did his thing his way and it was amazing. Thank you and may you Rest In Power,” revealed Bill Sellanga, popularly known as Blinky Bill.
Rest in Peace Ayub Ogada. I hope younger Kenyan musicians will google your name and realise that you and African Heritage Band are the reason they exist today. Such a sad season😢🎶 #RipAyubOgada pic.twitter.com/pDXS8hO63m
