Alex Mwakideu mourning his mother’s death

Radio presenter Alex Mwakideu has been bereaved following the death of his mother, who passed away on Tuesday after battling with a long illness.

Mwakideu, who is the Head of Radio Milele FM, broke the sad news of his mother’s death on social media on Wednesday morning.

“For the first time… Am lost. Totally lost. Totally. I don’t know what to type, what to do, where to start… I am lost. I will miss you mom. I will miss you so much. And I will love you forever. Thank you for being the BEST mom EVER. Rest with the Angels.. RIPMom,” he wrote on Instagram.


Mwakideu’s co-host at Milele FM, comedian Jalang’o, was quick to offer his colleague a message of condolences.

“Last evening I looked at my brother @alex_mwakideu tears flowing freely I knew how much you loved mum! Brother accept my condolences to you and your family! Mambo ya mungu hayana makosa,” Jalang’o wrote.


On Instagram, Mwakideu’s timeline was flooded with messages of condolences from his fans and numerous players in the Kenyan entertainment industry.

His mother’s death comes barely four months after he lost his sister in January.

Mwakideu’s sister, Emmy Godin, was a recording artiste with songs such as Closer and Good Times. She succumbed to cancer after being diagnosed in 2017.
