The "Bounce" hitmaker has only one known brother who goes by the name Shadrack.
Vanny Boy introduced him to the world through his social media accounts a while back while congratulating him on his graduation from Ardhi University in Tanzania.
Shadrack has always maintained a low profile, despite being related to one of Tanzania's biggest artists which explains why few people are aware of his existence.
Following the news, fans took to the comment section to condole with the bongo artist.
