Kenyan rapper Juliani has revealed how he felt after the late Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore refused to see him at his death bed.

In an interview with the Standard, Juliani says he could not understand why Collymore would refuse to see him yet they were BFF's.

"Weeks before he passed away Wambui called me and told me he was not going to make it. I got mad and went to his place wanting to pray for him but he refused for me to see him.

That messed me, I was like how would you refuse to see me? But later I understood why," Juliani said. 

Despite not seeing Collymore, Juliani counts himself lucky to have spent time with him a few weeks before his demise.

"I sat down in his living room and was talking about a project (Takabank), he went into the gym room and came with a whiteboard and made the plan himself. 

We sat for like 5 hours, spending time inside the house and around the swimming pool area. He was frail and struggling but he did not want us to see it.

That weekend I saw him twice as it was also Wambui's birthday. I did not think it would be the last time I saw him."
