Kenya and the music industry has been robbed of one of the most talented singers and songwriters, Laety Laetitia aka Hera.
Laety has been MIA for a while but is remembered for her song with rapper Flexx dubbed Number Yako and Siwezi Mind featuring Kano Boyz.
The mellow-voiced singer passed away on June 1 but the cause of her death has not been revealed just yet.
Her family took to social media to announce the sad news, with a short post then shared lyrics to her latest song Alamo.
Laety had just released a new song Alamo on April 25 which was in her native language, Dholuo, and this sorrowful news has come as a shock to her friends and fellow artistes.
Here are some of the lyrics from the song, which seem pretty spiritual.
Alamo- I pray
Alamo your well wherever you are
#Alamo that your steps be covered in bravery like King David
#Alamo that your journey be of great adventures.
#Alamo that your joys be multiplied like the sands of the sea
#Alamo that your sorrows be washed away by the drop of each tear.
#Alamo that like Daniel your enemy be muted.
#Alamo that Love and light lead your way. (Alamo-I Pray.)
Besides her musical career, Laety was a co-director, motivational speaker and management consultant at Women Of Wonder Kenya (WOW), management consultant at Redfellas International and a former motivational speaking/events manager at Sauti ya Ma-youth, according to her Facebook profile.
Condolences to the family and friends as they go through this tough time. Rest in Peace Laety.
