Early last year, i walked into Bruce’s studio. Sat in his office and told him, I’m tired. Tired of the condition that was eating me up. Tired of the pain i was going through. Tired of the fundraising. Bruce removed a mini bag. It had all his medication. He said to me, ” Look at all these pills, but I’m not tired.Njambi i just want you to leave the country and get treated. You can’t give up. We keep fighting”. Then he called Big Ted and said, could you kindly emcee for my girl Njambi at her fundraiser?
Big Ted said yes. Bruce later called various artistes to perform at my fundraisers and they all did come through.
Bruce allowed me to record unreleased material at his studio for free. He saw my pain and offered all he could. Bruce was my friend, he kept telling me to focus on healing, music will always be there. Right after all this, we’d sit at the back of the studio and eat ugali, fish, eggs and mboga. Last we all did this we were joined by Iddi Aziz. Tukakula na tukapiga story. This man really shaped our music industry. Bruce, I’m heartbroken because we were going to celebrate all of us overcoming disease and adversity. I can’t believe any of this. I’m so sad. My heart has sank and I’m so sad. Mighty Brucee, Rest in Perfect Peace. God bless your soul forever.
