Celebrities at burial of Mash Mwana's dad

Gospel singer Mash Mwana has thanked fans and his friends from the gospel music industry for coming through for him during the send off for his late father James Mamayo.

The 65-year-old succumbed to covid-19 last week at the Shalom hospital, Athi River. He was buried over the weekend at his home in Makueni.

The singer was left with a Sh500,000 hospital bill, which he was helped by friends to settle.

“It is good to stay well with people. When my dad passed, I called my pastor, my friend Sam, Masterpeice and DK Kwenye Beat since they are my closest friends. They came to the hospital with more friends.”

“They stood with me. I saw God, because I wasn’t left with any bill. We settled everything.”

Mwana has since released a tribute song to his dad dubbed ‘Lala Salama’
