Grace Makosewe – A Victim of Her Own Talent and Lack of Discipline in Managing It?
Grace Makosewe is dead. It’s traumatising to see such a young talent die at a stage where she was supposed to be conquering the world.
Circumstances of her death are not clear but people who were close to her detail the life of a party animal who didn’t know when to stop. According to close friends, Grace Makosewe’s death is a result of lack of discipline in her life.
Grace drunk too much alcohol and smoked Sheesha all through. This might have led to the breathing problems which are said to have caused her death. Friend reveal that some establishments which didn’t have Sheesha in their club menu had to introduce it just to satisfy Grace Makosewe.
With NACADA reports that some of the Sheesha flavours are laced with hard drugs, its not easy to rule out this as one of the causes of her death.
Grace was a former presenter at 98.4 Capital FM before being kicked out after differing with radio queen, Cess Mutungi. Grace was later to join Urban Radio in Kisumu before she was booted from the station as she and Edward Kwach were partying so hard that they couldn’t meet deadlines and deliver results to the company.
Grace later traveled for an unclear mission in Tanzania where he stayed for at least 9 months. She was later to come back to the country and join Homeboyz as the Digital Communications and Events Manager. Despite all these, Grace was never able to fully manage her drinking habits, leading her to continue staying with her parents in her 40s. She is known to have continued residing with her mother in Ngumo estate.
It’s unfortunate to lose Grace Makosewe at this stage but can we just inspire the talents we know to manage their lives well. The death of Grace should inspire us to speak to our friends who are hooked onto drugs or alcohol. We hope that Edward Kwach will return to radio soon and utilise his talents. No male presenter can match Kerry Francis (Edward Kwach) in creativity.
