Luo Musician Lady Maurine Is Dead

Luo Nyanza has woken up in a deep mourning after receiving the sad news of the death of a popular Ohangla Maestro Maurine Achieng who was best known as Lady Maurine. Lady Maurine who has been ailing for the last three years was reported dead on July 11, 2020 at 3.12 am.

She was receiving treatment at Doctor Machage Hospital in Migori where she was discharged earlier this week. Her sister Abel Achieng when confirming the incident said that she had started showing signs that she was well recuperating and that’s why she was discharged from the hospital. Abel said that Lady Maurine was then taken to her place in Uriri where she finally succumbed.

Mama Ida Odinga who also hails from Migori County sent her condolence message to the deceased family and the whole of Luo community for losing such a wonderful musician.

“I have received with great sadness the news of the death of Ohangla Queen Lady Maurine who is known for her great musical prowess. I am indeed very sorry because this is a great lose to the society. May God rest her soul in eternal peace,” Said Ida Odinga in her early morning condolence message.

Lady Maurine is best remembered for her political song Raila Come Home that she sang in praise of the ODM leader Raila Odinga at a time when Raila was struggling to get to the helm of power both in 2013 and 2017. One of her other songs that touched the Luo community was the song about Gor Mahia that became a hit song in the Luo vernacular radio stations for long.

May her soul rest in peace.
