Stella Mwangi alias STL has taken to Instagram to mourn Kantai, thanking him for believing in her when no one else did at the time.
Kantai passed away on the morning of February 27 at St. Francis Hospital in Kasarani.
STL, who is now a celebrated rapper both locally and internationally says that Kantai believing in her was something she will never be to forget.
“This one hit me hard I have been mourning, We come from far G.
This wasn’t the way it was supposed to end,We were to meet many more times and create uplifting music, that’s what we agreed!.
I remember early 2005, when I stepped in the Kenyan music scene,Nobody wanted to give me a shot they said I wouldn’t make it cos I didn’t know Swahili sheng.
You showed me love from first moment, you told me; “stick to ur style! U not the one to change,- it’s THEM”. Kantai, you beautiful soul❤️.”
“We had wonderful conversations about life, God & music, We wrote Happy, recorded it & shot video in like 2 days! It was pure joy.
U inspired me so much, i had memorized ur whole ‘Happy’ verse in like 10min, it cracked u up during the video shoot 😅 I feel so bad that I didn’t reach out to u last I was in Kenya.
It all went so fast..I thought we had time!💔💔 Even tho it’s a heartache, I can feel your spirit now, your truly Happy🙏🏾 I pray for your family with love wishing them peace. #RestInParadise 🌹.”
