Big Pin appeals for funds to help ailing artiste Patonee
Rapper Big Pin has made a medical appeal for his fellow musician Patonee whom he says has been hospitalized and is in critical condition.
According to Big Pin, Patonee has been in ICU since October 1. His medical bill has been growing at a rate of Sh200,000 resulting in his family seeking financial help.
“Patrick Gichuki Mwangi, ‘Patonee’ is critically ill and is hospitalized in the ICU ward, as of October 1. His hospital care is expensive and has been growing at a rate of Sh200,000 per day. There are plans to hold a physical fund-raising event at a later date to be communicated. However, given the growing bills, the family is requesting your assistance to support with any advance contribution, towards offsetting our bill,” Big Pin said.

Patonee made his music debut in the early 2000s with the song Talk to You featuring Big Pin and Amani.

The song was a big hit and a favorite of lovers. Amani and Big Pin are well-known artistes who have managed to remain relevant in the industry.
Amani however has since transitioned from secular to gospel music.
Patonee on the other hand faded out of the limelight and not much has been heard from him till now.
