He is said to have been undergoing treatment for a recurrent brain tumor when he developed complications and succumbed.

“To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I love you Christian, my brother, my friend and partner, but Jesus loves you more. Enjoy heaven,” Lovy wrote on Facebook.
The Longombas rose to fame in 2002.
He will also be remembered for club bangers like Shika more, and Piga Makofi.
