Ohangla musician popularly known as Lady Maureen has passed on.
The songstress died at 3am on Saturday in Uriri, Migori where she was recuperating after she was discharged from hospital last week, her family said.
The musician had been admitted to Pastor Machage Memorial Hospital in the outskirts of Migori last month.
Since the beginning of the year, she had been in and out of various hospitals battling different kinds of ailments such as malaria and anaemia.
According to a report by the Nation, her cousin Bella Achieng, who had been living with the musician, confirmed her death.
“She was discharged from hospital last week and she seemed to be out of danger,” Ms Achieng said.
In February, Lady Maureen was stranded at a Kisumu hospital after being discharged. Ms Nancy Achieng, who was taking care of the musician in hospital, claimed that the musician’s mother was reluctant to take her in following an earlier family misunderstanding. But her mother dismissed the claims.
Ms Achieng offered to take care of Lady Maureen after reading singer Akothee’s Facebook post asking someone to help the songstress.
ODM leader Raila Odinga and his wife Ida, Governor Okoth Obado as well Migori Woman Representative Dr Pamela Odhiambo are among leaders who have condoled with the family.
Last month, fake news of the musician death spread after a dancer also called Maureen passed on prompting her mother to tell her fans that she was alive.
Lady Maureen is known for top hits such as Jogi Jokuoge, Alemo, Gor Kogallo, Raila among others.
