The late Achieng Abura despite being surrounded by challenges was a big dreamer and wanted to earn as many academic degrees as possible.

She was also battling kidney problems before she passed on at the KNH’s private wing.

Abura’s son, Prince who needs millions for treatment in the UK is battling a heart disease as well as sickle cell anemia.

During an interview with Business Daily published on Thursday, July 7, the former Tusker Project Fame judge revealed she wanted to add one more feather in her academic cap and use music to transform the society.

“I have a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Masters in environmental studies and when my son starts college, I’m going to do my PhD,” she was quoted by Business Daily.0fgjhsesgrk2hug28-e092a35e

She further said she wanted to use her music to bring a positive change in the society and not just for financial gain.

Top lawyer Donald Kipkorir has blasted Kenyans for pretending to mourn Abura yet they could not come to her aid when she organized a fundraising to seek for money for her son’s treatment.

During the fund raising, only ten people turned up despite Abura being surrounded by many friends especially fellow musicians.
