“Curtains fall on Ukambani legendary gospel artist, Jeremiah Mulu. Mulu is known for his famous hit ‘VULA MBEU NTHUKU’ that saw him win the coveted Groove Awards- Eastern Song of the year in 2012. He has been ailing for quite sometime now and finally succumbed to a heart attack last night.

Thumua na uvoo.”
