It has been a dark month and it seems like the grim reaper is not yet done yet. Saturday night, the entertainment industry suffered a blow after the death of an icon and pioneer in the industry.
Kevin Ombajo aka Big Kev the CEO Of Tru Blaq Events outfit passed on Saturday night at Nairobi Hospital where he had been admitted. He had been battling Brain Tumor for about six years undergoing multiple surgeries that even turned brutal on his nerves leaving him blind.
The industry players collectively took to social media to express their condolences and mourn the loss describing Kev as a humble guy who had a vision for Kenya and he saw its fruition. Earlier on this year, the entertainment industry players organized a fundraiser, 10,000 per attendant to raise cash for the bill and raised an amazing Ksh 7 million.

Big Kev. The one guy who would pick calls when no one else would. A great mentor. An icon. Sleep well, gallant warrior.
