DJ Krowbar Opens Up on wife's Battle with Acute Kidney Injury

DJ Krowbar Opens Up on wife's Battle with Acute Kidney Injury


Award-winning gospel DJ Fredrick Ngatia, aka DJ Krowbar, celebrated his wife's birthday with thanksgiving.

Krowbar said his wife Wanjiru Karumba has been diagnosed with acute kidney Injury, a diagnosis that has drained the family emotional as she has to be on dialysis. 

Krowbar shared a photo of his wife in hospital and captioned,

Today is my wife’s birthday. This is the most special birthday I have ever had with her.

The reason is; this could have ended differently. Some of you might know but for those who don’t know; here we go.

Unfortunately in April this year my wife was diagnosed with Acute Kidney Injury. 

In layman's terms, this means her kidneys are functioning below 15% and we began a journey that took many weeks for us to accept the sad reality; dialysis. If we hadn’t gone to the hospital the day we went today would have been a different story.

So, for the last seven months, we have followed the instructions from medical practitioners as we faith the rest of this journey."


The father of two was however grateful that he was going through the ups and down of life with his wife.

Babe, I am glad we are together in this storm; we are in the fire but God has covered us with grace we don’t smell like smoke.

 And another thing babe, I am convinced one day, this season will be a testimony for many to be encouraged out there.

 So, today I ask of you to speak a word in faith over my wife’s health as we celebrate her birthday. We believe in prayers; more so prayers from the community of believers. Two or three can put flight to 10,000.

 Happy Birthday Babe! To many more, another great year begins.

According to the National Kidney foundation, Acute kidney injury (AKI), also known as acute renal failure (ARF), is a sudden episode of kidney failure or kidney damage that happens within a few hours or a few days.

AKI causes a build-up of waste products in your blood and makes it hard for your kidneys to keep the right balance of fluid in your body.

 AKI can also affect other organs such as the brain, heart, and lungs. Acute kidney injury is common in patients who are in the hospital, in intensive care units, and especially in older adults.
