Obituary

Odhiambo battled with his illness long, stoically and with remarkable bravery. He will be laid to rest on 19th January in Koru.

Former Youth Enterprise Fund chairman and renowned music producer Bruce Odhiambo died on January 8, 2019 at Nairobi Hospital after developing heart related complications.

To President Uhuru Kenyatta, he is the go-to guy and a close friend.

To artistes, he is “Brother B” — a mentor and skilled producer, and his Johari Cleff studios is a melting pot of creativity.

And to hundreds of disadvantaged people, he is a philanthropist who believes in the biblical advice that the left hand should not know what the right hand is doing.

To those who grew up in the 1980s and 1990s, he is the talented musician who played with the legendary Mombasa-based Safari Sound Band and the Spartans.

Bruce was one of the actors in the star-studded controversial Kenyan movie Project Daddy.

In the movie, a woman is on the prowl for a man to father her child in a no-frills relationship of convenience.

The hunt zeroes in on, among others, the towering figure of Bruce Odhiambo.

Bruce was at the centre of the Sh180m Youth Enterprise Fund scandal. Bruce in an email to a media house, Royal Media Services, said he was “stepping down to allow investigations to continue.”
