The late musician whose real name is Dennis Mwangi will be buried at their Matunda Village in Kakamega County.
As reported by The Sauce, the award-wining star was found dead two weeks ago after he reportedly committed suicide by jumping from the seventh floor of a building in Pangani, Nairobi.
His sister Grace Muthoni said that musician will be buried at their home.
“My brother Papa Dennis will be buried tomorrow (Wednesday) at our home in Matunda along the Kitale-Eldoret highway,” Ms Muthoni said.
Papa Dennis’s body has been lying at the Nairobi City mortuary since his demise. A police statement indicated: “Dennis Mwangi alias Papa Dennis fell from Kirima building a storey in Pangani area of Ngara at around 2330hrs.”
A memorial service was conducted at the Nairobi Chapel on Ngong road on Monday (17.02.20) before his body was moved to his rural home for public viewing ahead of his burial.
