Kevin Ombajo alias Big Kev succumbed to death last weekend after he fought a brain tumor for so long. The CEO to True Blaq entertainment was one of the pioneers in the entertainment industry who stretched his hands out to aid many celebrities.
One of those celebrities is Prezzo who has come out to say that Kev played a big part in his music career.
He exclusively talked to Mpasho:
“Big Kev, My mother, Big Tedd and I sat down from the word go when we were planning to put prezzo out there internationally. Big Kev really really helped me. I believe without Big Kev there would have been no Prezzo, he made an impact on my career”
He pointed out that in 2003, Kev was among the people he thanked in his song dubbed Mafans for his great impact.
“I did a song called mafans, there is a part where i go like ‘Big Tedd True Black na Big Kev, thanks to y’all manze your boy is breaking great.’ This is a song that i wrote in 2003. That goes to show you how deep our bond was. May his soul rest in peace. He made a very big impact in the music industry.”
Big Kev’s memorial service was held on Thursday afternoon at the Nairobi Baptist church from where Mpasho streamed live on Facebook.
He will be laid to rest on Saturday at his home in Gem, Kisumu.
He died at the age of 43.
