Exclusive: Roseline Damian’s last moments before she passed on

The family of the late renowned singer Roseline Damian, has shared details of the singer’s final moments with them before she tragically succumbed to her battle against breast cancer.

In an exclusive interview with Nairobi News, Pastor Daudi, a close family member, revealed that Roseline had shown signs of improvement in her health before her untimely demise.

Despite bravely fighting stage four breast cancer, which had led to other medical issues, Roseline managed to maintain a remarkable clarity of mind during her last days.

“Breast cancer was the main ailment she was battling with, but because it was in stage four, it brought some brain effects. However, by the time of her death, her memory was now very clear,” Pastor Daudi said.

The gifted artiste, known for her soul-stirring Luo and Swahili hits, including Ruoth in’gama nade, Simba Muomo, Wuon Osimbo, Nipende Yesu, and Tukuza Bwana, passed away at the tender age of 39.

We are taking this opportunity to thank everyone for accepting to be here to stand with our dear sister, Roseline Damian, who is in the hospital right now. It’s been confirmed that she is suffering from breast cancer, brain tumor, and leukemia… we all know Roseline, and she has been a blessing to most of us. Now, it’s our turn to show her our love by supporting her financially and spiritually… Money and blood are needed, so we still need more donors to donate blood… The amount needed for now is 700k. Let’s stand with our own, sacrifice any amount for this noble cause.”

Roseline’s deep faith in God was evident until her last moments.

Before her death, she made sure to reach out to her close friends, sharing the word of God and cherishing their presence during her difficult journey.
