R.I.P. Ayub Ogada

The greats are leaving us. Just a few days after Tuku, another famous African musician left us, the Kenyan Ayub Ogada. I don’t know how often I have played his most popular song “Kothbiro”with people everywhere, kids and grown-ups alike.


An earlier version of the song, when Ogada was a member of the Kenyan psychedelic rock band Black Savage, is little know these days.
