In the morning of January 17, 2020 at B Club, just as the night was winding down, DJ Evolve was shot in the neck at point blank range by Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.
The flashbacks from that fateful day to date haunt DJ Evolve.
In a candid interview with Dan Mwangi on NTV, Evolve spoke from his sick bed.
The spinmaster said that his life has taken a dramatic turn.
His tools of trade, his hands have minimal mobility, he does not know what the future holds for him and his career.
To top all that up, he had difficulty sleeping since the shooting. The flashbacks have kept him awake for months.
DJ Evolve told Dan Mwangi,
“I am currently doing better as opposed to how I was the first time. I was completely traumatized at first but I am learning to live with it.”
“At least nowadays I can be able to sleep but initially I could not sleep at all. I kept having flashbacks of that fateful day. I need medication so that I can be able to sleep.”
“Right now I can move my hands and legs a little bit.
The mother who is his primary caretaker said during the interview that the shooting left her in alot of pain.
“Due to the pain (in my heart), I cannot talk. I just talk to my God. My son’s life has been destroyed. (I hope to get) justice for my kid. Only that,” she says.
In a past interview Babu Owino said,
“It is a matter that is between me and God and I chose to forgive myself, we cannot change the past but we can change the future, let us focus on what is coming in the foreseeable future.
“Let us not dwell so much in our past cause we can’t change it, no matter how we would want to.”
