Kikuyu gospel musician Sammy Boy famously known for his hit song No Ira Tu meaning Just Yesterday is serving a life imprisonment for allegedly a crime he did not commit.
In 2015 an unfortunate incident occurred to him as a friend who was close to him brought stolen goods to his house. Among the stolen properties were laptops, mobile phones and household items like gas cylinders.
Unbeknownst to him that the goods were stolen he kept them in his house. Speaking to Inooro Tv, the Kikuyu musician narrates that the law enforcement caught up with him and his life changed when he began a torturous journey with the law that landed him in jail for life imprisonment.
Unfortunately, the only person who could have proven his innocence went with the truth to the grave. The death of his friend who died in a road accident lead to his conviction.
He says that he lost everything after his imprisonment including his wife. Sammy's current state of affairs has broken the hearts of many and is hopeful that the truth will be revealed when the time is right.
