A section of Kenyans on Twitter had claimed on Tuesday afternoon that DJ Evolve had succumbed to gunshot wounds he sustained in January last year at Kilimani’s B-club after a shooting incident involving Embakasi Member of Parliament Babu Owino.
DJ Evolve was discharged from the Nairobi Hospital in June last year after being bedridden for nearly six months.
However, the disc jockey, who worked at the popular club still can’t walk. He was wheeled home in an adjustable bed provided by the hospital.
He is able to talk but in a low voice due to the multiple surgeries he underwent after being shot in the neck at B-club.
In an interview with NTV in July 2020, DJ Evolve said he is still bedridden and can not do anything by himself.
