Singer David Mathenge, alias Nameless has launched an online petition to rally Kenyans to sign up and call for the Nairobi County government to name a road in South C after the legendary rapper the late E-Sir

Issah Mmari, alias E-Sir died 19 years ago when he was just 21 years through a tragic road accident along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway on his way back to Nairobi from a concert on the 16th of March 2003.

The petition’s final destinations will be the desks of Governor Johnson Sakaja, the Nairobi County Assembly and the Transport and Roads CEC.

Widely regarded as one of the finest rappers ever to emerge on the East African entertainment scene, his music still fills the airwaves on FM stations across the country. 

“In honour of this iconic Kenyan artists who was not only a great talent and friend to many but a pioneer in his genre of music we are calling on the Nairobi County Council (NCC) and The Office of the Ombudsman to name a road, drive or street in South C in 'E-Sir's" name as a way of celebrating artistic talent and in honor of his memory,” part of the petition reads.

To date, E-Sir is remembered for changing the game in the Kenyan music scene. Long after his death, he is still widely regarded as one of the best rappers to emerge on the Kenyan hip hop scene.

“E-Sir’s legacy continues to inspire generations after his passing with his talent, hard work, passion and humility. The naming of a road after him will celebrate these great values and recognize the importance of the arts in our culture.” - Nameless.
