Event organiser Big Kev, born Kevin Ombajo, is dead.
Big Kev, who was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor in 2010, died 8pm Saturday, July 29 at the Nairobi Hospital. He was admitted at the medical facility beginning February, 2017.
The founder of True Blaq Events had undergone 14 surgeries to remove the tumor, with one of the surgical operations performed in India in October, 2016. The last surgical operation performed on him was at the Nairobi Hospital on February 3, 2017.
In February, 2017, hundreds of Kenyan entertainers turned up for a KSh10, 000 per-attendant dinner, which was held at the Carnivore Restaurant in Nairobi to raise funds for the medication of Big Kev.
The campaign realised over Ksh7.1 million.
Big Kev was represented at the event by his wife Tracy Kamene Ombajo, who thanked Kenyans for their donations
