Has he forgiven the man who shot him in the neck? DJ Evolve tells all

DJ Evolve’s life will never be the same again! He better than most now knows the value and impact a second can have on one’s life.

A time in history where Emabakasi MP Babu Owino allegedly pulled the trigger on the unsuspecting DJ. A moment that will forever be etched in Kenyan minds.

Yesterday, the DJ gave an interview to NTV and one could see tell see the impact that that fateful day in January had already had on him.

The DJ whose real names are Felix Orinda explained that he couldn’t do anything for himself, and fully depends on other people to do things for him. Evolve who struggled with his speech due to a tube that has been attached to his neck said,

“I’m currently …just here. There is nothing I do for myself, so I’m fully dependent on people do to things for me.”

The DJ, however, had a positive spin on his condition saying that he had improved a bit since the start of his ordeal,

“I’m OK generally, I’m doing better as opposed to when it first happened. I was really traumatized at the beginning but I learnt to live with it. At least nowadays I can be able to sleep, but before I couldn’t sleep at all, I kept having flashbacks of the fateful day. I needed medication to put me to sleep.”

The DJ who has been recuperating at home mentioned that his health is slowly improving as he can now move his hands a bit, something that was not possible before.

“I’m slightly able to move my limbs (Hands), that’s the much I can do, but I can’t be able to move my arms. Not really, because these were my tools of trade, so when I don’t have them there is no way I can be able to work. But generally, looking at it, its better because I can move them, but before I couldn’t do that.”

The one burning question many may have for the DJ is whether he had forgiven the person who had put him in that horrible position? He answer was open-ended saying that he left that to the Lord;

“I left that to God and I’m waiting for the justice system to see what will go through. But aside from that, I don’t have anything else to say.”

“Since the day of the incident, I quit my job to take care of my son. we have just been depending on well-wishers for survival. Due to the pain (in my heart), I cannot talk. I just talk to my God. My son’s life has been destroyed. (I hope to get) justice for my kid. only that,” she says.

The mother also explained that Babu Owino had indeed paid the Sh. 7 million hospital bill as ordered by the court.

“Babu Owino paid the 7 million shillings bill as ordered by the courts. I did not ask for my son to be discharged as reported by several media houses. I am not a doctor and I do not know how someone could fake something like that,” she said.

In the interview, Dj Evolve told Dan Mwangi that he has left it to God about forgiving Babu Owino.

‘I am just here. There’s nothing I can do for myself. I was really traumatised in the beginning, but I have learnt to live with it,” he said. I left that to God and I’m waiting for the justice system to see what I will go through’

Mike weighed in saying it broke his heart to hear the Disc Jockeys mother recalling the moment she received news that her son had been shot.

His mum revealed she left her job to take care of him, and was very emotional when asked if she has ever seen Babu Owino saying ‘atasitaki kunongea kwa sasa’.

“Due to the pain (in my heart), I cannot talk. I just talk to my God. My son’s life has been destroyed. (I hope to get) justice for my kid. Only that,” she told NTV.

‘He wants to annoy us’ Kenyans notice about Babu Owino’s bragging habit


Embakasi East MP Babu Owino will not have it easy online as long as KOT have anything to do with it.

The controversial politician is known to love posting quotes about his greatness, and it’s well within his right to brag.

But ever since he was accused of shooting Dj Evolve, no one will make him forget this dirty deed. Literally every caption is accompanied by responses from Kenyans reminding him about the fate of Dj Evolve, whom he fatally shot and was hospitalized for several months at Nairobi Hospital’s ICU.

‘I stayed in an abusive relationship,’ Betty Bayo speaks about fear

The first time he ever spoke about the shooting he said ‘People should stop attacking me and insulting me, I never killed anyone, what happened between me and Dj Evolve was just two gentlemen disagreeing like grownups’.

Babu Owino continues to rattle Kenyans and perhaps he is aware that he is annoying and won’t stop?

This weekend was no different and he was online once again reminding whoever cared to read that ‘I am the future of the great Republic of Kenya’.

This statement did not sit well with KOT who bashed him with swift comments below.

And so a flood of annoying reactions followed, which you can read below:

Joy as Dj Evolve finally leaves hospital (videos)

Felix Orinda or as many call him Dj Evolve is finally out of Nairobi Hospital. The Dj who was allegedly shot by Babu Owino in B-Club earlier this year, has been recuperating for close to 4 months.

The DJ was released yesterday afternoon with the hospital providing him with an adjustable bed as he still can’t walk. According to a Star reporter on-site, the Dj can talk but only in a low voice due to the many operations he underwent.

The reporter also added that Babu Owino was still paying for his treatment with reports from the Dj’s father claiming that the bill had risen to Sh. 16 million as of Mid-May with Babu having paid about Sh. 5 million only.

This follows a long road to recovery for the Dj that started with his hospitalisation at Nairobi Hospital’s ICU wing.

After that, the Dj underwent two successful surgeries; In the first, a bullet that was lodged in his neck was removed, while in the second surgery, a blood clot was removed from the affected area. He was scheduled for a third surgery on January 20 but it didn’t happen and was postponed.

The Dj underwent the 3rd surgery in May that would help him heal quicker from his injuries.

He is still in hospital with Sh11 million bill, Babu only paid Sh5 million – Dad of DJ evolve

Dj Evolve was unknown by most Kenyans until he was allegedly shot by Babu Owino at the B-Club premises where he worked as the resident deejay.

Since that tragic January day, he has been at Nairobi Hospital recuperating from his wounds. While there, contradictory reports have emerged, like; the cost of his treatment, how much of it had been offset by Babu Owino and whether he was still at the hospital?

This past weekend, The-Star spoke to the entertainer’s father to get a clearer picture of what was really going on? John Orinda, dismissed reports that his son had been released from Nairobi hospital.

DJ Evolve is a personal friend and no one can come in between us – Babu Owino

Not only that, Mr. Orinda also contradicted the earlier claim made by Babu Owino that he had settled his son’s hospital bill.

“He is still in hospital and as we speak, I’m in the ward with him. The bill is still too high. Babu paid only Sh5 million of the Sh16 million bill.”

Babu had also claimed that Dj Evolve hadn’t been released because of the Covid-19 pandemcic, something Mr. Orinda was having none off stating that his son’s lower body is still unresponsive.

“He has been moved to the general ward, but he can’t sit. His upper body is okay, his hands can move, he can talk, but he has a pipe in the oesophagus to pass out mucus. So he can’t talk when it’s inside. His legs are still unresponsive.”

DJ Evolve’s hospital bill skyrockets to Ksh 13 million

DJ Evolve, real name Felix Orinda, is recovering well after his third surgery. DJ Shock, who has been keeping in touch with the family, said Evolve is doing well.

Shock said,

“He is still recovering but only his mother is allowed to be close to him, other visitors wave from the outside of the glass,This was after his third surgery so the wound can heal as quickly as possible”

His mother has to wear a mask and apron when she enters his ward.

“It’s not to do with Covid-19. This was the protocol even before it was in the country,” Shock said.

“Yes, the nurses clean the wound every five days, as he now has movement in his arms. Eventually his legs will respond as well. I believe, too, he will make a full recovery.”

However, despite this good news, the family is wary of the growing hospital bill.

Early this month, a High Court judge Luka Kimaru ruled the order to pay the bill could only be issued by a civil court and not a criminal court.

“The accused person should continue paying the hospital bill as a moral duty to him, not as a court order. If he fails to pay, it is up to him and his God,” Kimaru ruled.

The family has reservations if Embakasi MP Babu Owino will help them settle the hospital bill that keeps skyrocketing. Already, it is almost hitting the Sh13 million mark.

Felix Orinda aka DJ Evolve is still in a critical condition. The disc jockey who was shot in the neck by Embakasi East MP Babu Owino on 17 January at B Club, is fighting for his life at Nairobi Hospital’s ICU.

The family is worried about their son’s health and are struggling to pay the bill despite the court having ordered the controversial politician to pay Ksh10m million to cater for DJ Evolve’s treatment.

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi ordered Babu Owino to pay the cash in installments of Ksh2.5 million per month until the disc jockey recovers fully.

According to the family, the only bill the lawmaker paid was Sh600,000 he paid before he was arrested but since his release, he has failed to clear any bills.

His medical bill has shot to Ksh7.5 and his family is having sleepless nights and can’t raise it.
