Moments after Joseph Irungu alias Jowie was charged guilty of the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani, he released a song titled Nakuabudu (I adore you) on his YouTube channel.

Jowie’s music career debuted more than three years ago as he shared with his over 33 subscribers his music journey. In the lyrics of his latest song, he expressed profound reverence for God, stating his reliance on Him and his commitment to seek divine guidance eternally.

The song, which is imbued with scriptural themes, has sparked a range of reactions, with many people commenting that it’s not their place to judge Jowie, acknowledging that everyone has flaws. They have also expressed their best wishes for him as he embarks on this new phase of his journey.

Here is what Kenyans had to say:

“And Jesus said …let anyone that has never sinned be the first to stone her…😢😢😢😢,” wrote Wanjiru Ngendo.

“I just don’t know why I’m crying, by any chance he means this… he’s in the right place, God promised not to fail us, at His own time, He’ll make it happen, I don’t know how true the judgment is but Jowie knows the truth and he can tell his heart….my advice to Jowie is long as you can find yourself awake every morning… there’s victory somewhere in between the battle…keep moving and trusting God,” said Kennedy Ouma.

“And because am a sinner too, and on the judgment day I’ll face the Supreme being I’ll not judge,find peace and forgiveness in God. He gives a million chances to us and He forgives unlike us humans,” opined Fridah Mumbua.

“Weeeh am a Muslim but am just speechless I can just feel the pain his family has gonna through during this period and I think we don’t have the right to judge anyone here coz we are all sinners Jowie my brother stay strong all will be well# YATAPITA,” said Abdul Prince.

“The song is touching😢😢We ain’t perfect 🥺 God works wonders…God hears and answers,” wrote Nancy Wambui.

“But what am happy about is that has given every person a chance to repent and there’s no sin God can’t forgive. Let him be your true friend, he won’t abandon you, he will be with Jowie as well,” said Juliette Mwangi.

“God punishes those that He loves Hebrews 12:6. God loves you Jowie. Gold must go through the fire for it to be purified. May God give enough grace to take this cup,” wrote Phoebe Mbagah.

“He’s a God of chance, don’t let this verdict lose faith in Him who has kept you ❤,” penned Samuel Kendi.

On Friday, February 9, 2024, nearly six years after the incident, High Court Judge Grace Nzioka announced that the prosecution had successfully demonstrated, via a series of circumstantial evidence, Mr Irungu’s involvement in the crime committed on the night of September 19, 2018.

As a result, Judge Nzioka revoked Jowie’s bond terms and was taken into custody pending the sentencing which will be rendered to him on March 8th, 2024.
