In what seems like 2019’s first unfolding Kenyan celebrity saga, Rapper Henry Ohanga popularly known as Octopizzo could be facing murder charges after the family of the late Kenneth Abom accused him of his murder in events that transpired on 17th January in Woodley Estate, Kibera.
Octopizzo who is also famous for Number 8 line as he was brought up in Kibera, Kenya’s largest slum, has been accused of murdering the 19-year-old Kenneth, who is also a student at Strathmore Business School in Nairobi.
In rather foggy circumstances, the King of rap is accused of finding Kenneth in his house which led to a thorough beating with the rapper armed with a machete which could have allegedly prompted the young man to jump off from the building’s fourth floor leading to his death.
Octopizzo has however denied being behind the death of the young student by compelling him in any way to jump off the building, which allegedly led to his death. Octopizzo maintained that Kenneth jumped an hour after the altercation which he did admit to having had with the now late Kenneth, also said to be a die-hard Octopizzo fan.
Kenneth succumbed to chest injuries at the Kenyatta National Hospital after the deadly fall
