Octopizzo was embroiled in a saga early last year that threatened to derail his promising career. A Nairobi family had pointed an accusing finger at the rapper, whose real names are Henry Ohanga, over the death of their teenage son.
The family of the late Kenneth Abom suspected that the rapper injured their son during a scuffle at his house. Complications from his head injury might have led to the boy’s death, the parents suspected, with the rapper denying the allegations,
Octopizzo isn’t the only celeb to have allegations of murder lobbed at him, below is a list of celebs who have suffered the same fate. They are:

The star who loves weed like a fat baby loves cake has also faced his own legal issues. In 1993, he along with his bodyguard were charged with murder for the shooting death of Phillip Woldemariam, a rival gang member.
Snoop was finally acquitted of the charges in 1996.
The former host was once the most popular personality on television, in an illustrious career that would sadly end, ignominiously. Some might say it ended after he was accused of the murder of Careen Chepchumba.

So far, the former T.V personality is a free man with the police accused of bungling the case by former Kibera Resident magistrate Charles Ondiek.
The former American football player tarnished a glorious sporting legacy when he was charged with the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Lyle Goldman. After a much-publicized trial, Simpson was found not guilty in 1995.
The South African Paralympian was sentenced to six years in prison for murdering his girlfriend, actress/model Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013. According to Pistorius, he mistook her of an intruder.
