We were friends for many years, you inspired me to register my first company. Telling me how I should invest and the industry works. We respected each other as true friends. We love you bro.
For the friend and inspiration you were to me and for the path you forged for us in the music industry, I salute you. You will be dearly missed. May your soul rest in peace.

With our love and deepest sympathy as we remember Bruce Odhiambo. Rest in peace.
The late Bruce leaves behind his two children, daughter Simone and son Laboriel. He also has a grandson Ethan.
The former Youth and Enterprises Development boss died at the Nairobi Hospital after a long battle with cardiac ailments.
In 2018 October, Odhiambo went to India to replace his pacemaker that had been implanted under the skin to help manage irregular heartbeats.
He returned to Kenya in November but his body developed more complications that led to his admission to hospital.
