Popular Ohangla musician Lady Maureen is not dead

Renowned Ohangla Singer Maureen Achieng’ Otiu, popularly known as Lady Maureen is not dead, and the artiste who has passed on is Maurine Nyar Awendo, a dancer to Fred Jakadongo’s band.

Reliable sources tell sonkonews.com that Lady Maureen who has been ailing for some time now is currently undergoing treatment in one of health facilities in Tanzania.

News swirling the social media pages had indicated that the ‘Wangni Wabiro’ hitmaker had succumbed in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

Maureen has been in and out of the hospital for the last three years after she was diagnosed with hypotension (abnormally low blood pressure).
” We can confirm that Lady Maureen is still alive and it is saddening how she has been killed by bloggers, this world id full of assists,” said our source.
And this is not the first time that tumour mongers have had a field day with the news of her demise. In January social media was awash with the same rumours. At the time, Lady Maureen refuted the rumours indicating that she was alive, undergoing treatment and ideally called on rumourmongers to stop spreading fake news.

“I am not dead. I was rushed here by my family members when my condition worsened. I am currently being transfused with blood. It has never been made clear what I am suffering from but my condition has worsened in recent days,” she said in an interview with a local blog.

Apparently, the Luo Benga Queen had been admitted at Pastor Machage Memorial Hospital in Migori County and when the medical bills went high, family and friends deserted her.

Following her state of health and lack of finances, celebrities took to social media to stand by her and make donations aimed to offset the bills and cater to her basic needs while out of the hospital.

Singer Akothee took the role and created a paybill number where she called on other celebrities to follow suit.

Some of her famous hit songs include Safari ya Canaan, Raila Jakom and Wangni Biro.

In a span of two weeks, the Luo community has lost three renowned musicians, Abenny Jachiga Omondi Longlilo and now Lady Maureen.
