Kiss Fm’s breakfast show co-host Shaffie Weru is one of the people that were close to event organizer Big Kev.
Kevin Ombajo succumbed to death after fighting a brain tumor for long. His death took many by surprise among them Shaffie who described him as everyone’s best friend, a person that wanted every other person to prosper.
“Big Kev was like a father to me, every time I messed up and acted a fool he would take time off his busy schedule and sit me down. The first piece of land I ever invested in was because of Big Kev. One time he hired me for a gig and refused to pay me but instead put that cash into an investment scheme so I wouldn’t waste it. Everyone was Kev’s best friend, he didn’t have enemies, and he knew everyone by name and hung out with everyone. He has fought a good fight but he also lived a good life; he wanted everyone to prosper. I was just a rowdy boy from South C but Kev has turned me into the man I am today, ” Shaffie told Buzz.
Big Kev was laid to rest On Saturday at his home in Kisumu. He died at the age of 43 and leaves behind a widow Tracy Mwende and daughter Shana.
May he rest in peace!
