I have since then moved on, traveled to Kenya to find new African act that can perform at my mother’s concert this year. I have een away since August 20!, till now I don’t know nything other than what was written in the blogs nd press.
I don’t even know where he lives, I only now his former label boss and their house. I don’t now any nurse or doctor or hospital, I don’t know anything about his movement, I don’t have that me, I have lost a lot more money than that before, you win some you loose some. That is my story case close. I came here willingly and happily. I know nothing about how the musician died “”-Sam Larry
