During his last live performance, the late Emmanuel Makori alias Ayeiya Poapoa did something most fans considered unusual as he wound up his show.
According to a fan who was present at the recording on Thursday, April 13, show days earlier, Ayeiya told the DJ not to play his usual background music.
“No background music was played. He told the DJ not to play it and so he walked off the stage silently. Little did he know he was walking into a forever silent world. This makes me feel that Ayeiya had a premonition of his death. Death has no mercy truly. May God stand with his family,” said a fan who mourned him on social media.
Sadly, after the live recording, Makori, another Churchill Show comedian Wakimani Ogutu, Makori’s wife and another female passenger were involved in a fatal car accident near the junction of Catholic University of East Africa in the wee hours of Friday, April 14.
Makori, who was asleep at the time, died on the spot as the other passengers were rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
Days later, on Sunday, April 16, Ogutu took to Facebook to thank fans for their prayers and encouraging messages, and he also posted a photo of him and Makori from their first job together.
