Kenyan Music industry mourns the loss of Eric Onguru, popularly known as Kunguru



The Kenyan music industry is in mourning after the loss of one of its greats, Eric Onguru, popularly known as Kunguru.

According to his former manager, he passed away on Sunday, March 19th, at 2:00 pm at a Nairobi hospital where he had been admitted for the past few weeks.

Kunguru had been in and out of hospitals since 2017 due to an accident that affected his spinal cord.

He was mostly known for his club-banging hits such as "I Will Never Let you Go" and "Baby Don't Go," which featured Mr. Lenny.

Kunguru started rapping at a young age, and in 2006, he released his first mainstream hit, "African Woman," featuring Mr. Lenny.

Kunguru was a married man and also worked in the banking industry apart from his musical career.

Kunguru was formerly known as a "ladies' man," and his style of music was attributed to this moniker.

He was among the few talents retained by Ogopa Deejays when they terminated the contracts of most of their signees back then.

Media personality Gidi Gidi was among the first people to mourn Kunguru. "RIP my friend KUNGURU," Gidi Gidi said.

Tributes have been pouring in from fans and fellow musicians alike.

The music industry has lost a great talent, and his legacy will forever remain in his music.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.

May his soul rest in peace.
