Fred Omondi was set to perform at a show in Meru this weekend.

In the wake of his untimely death, his older brother, Eric Omondi, honored Fred’s memory through a deeply personal and moving song shared on social media.

The brothers had collaborated on a song titled “Kasuku,” which addresses issues of bad leadership and urges the electorate to hold leaders accountable.

In his tribute, Eric penned, “Go well brother @fredomondi_.”
