Legendary singer Sam Wa Ukweli is dead. The singer who is well known for the song “Sina Raha” succumbed last night after suddenly falling sick.
At the time of his sudden death, the singer was in studio about to release a new single. He and his producer Steve were in studio at the time of his sickness but he died on the way to the hospital.
His body was taken to Mwananyamala.
His producer says the singer died of HIV/AIDS but the deceased believed he had been bewitched.
“Nilikua naye studio. Sam alikuja Jumamosi ya wiki iliyopita, lengo lake alikuja kufanya wimbo lakini hakua sawa. Alisema kuna kitu angetaka kutuambia. Akasema anaumwa.
“Akasemwa, Naumwa Ukimwi. Lakini sio Ukimwi mnaouona nyinyi. Nimerogwa.”
“Sababu ninayosema nimerogezewa ukimwi ni kwa sababu dawa za hospitali hazifanyi kazi. Akasema nataka niandike nyimbo za kinachoniuma. Nyimbo inahusiana na Ulimwengu.
“Alianza kusikia tumbo ikiuma. Usiku akataka kuenda chooni lakini nguvu hana, sisi ikabidi tumpeleke chooni. Naomba mnifunge Pampers. Akasema anasikia kama anashindwa kuhema. Tukampeleka clinic.Alifariki saa sita hivi”
