Soul Jah Love started complaining of being unwell last Saturday but his condition somewhat improved Sunday morning.

He later attended a studio session on Monday where he recorded a song with a local producer. However, his condition took a downturn on Tuesday afternoon while he was alone at home.

One of his closest friends, Ricardo, found him lying down unconscious on his sofa when he returned from the shops.

Ricardo sought help from Soul Jah Love’s sister, Carol and some of his friends.

They rushed him to Mbuya Dorcas hospital where he was pronounced dead 30 minutes into admission. H-Metro
