DJ Lithium passed on on Wednesday the 19th of January, by suicide, leaving his loved ones in great pain.
The DJ's actual name is Alexander Murimi Nderi. He consumed poisonous substances at the capital Fm's offices located at Lonrho house, Nairobi. He was rushed to the Nairobi Hospital but didn't make it.
DJ Lithium was thirty-four years old. He was an introvert, and as such, hardly shared his life's experiences with anyone. It came out that he had been in psychotherapy for the past two years.
According to The Standard, Lithium's friends described him as very kind but secretive on his personal life and problems. Amayayi Mutuku is one close friend who gave an encounter of her late friend.
"He'd just respond with 'I'm not okay' and not elaborate any further if asked how he was doing," said Amayayi.
The two have been friends since their undergraduate years at Daystar University. They communicated last on Monday the 17th after Lithium spoke on his private twitter account on the high cost of dealing with depression in the country.
Amayayi had called to get to know what was troubling him but he simply said he was okay.
He had been diagnosed with depression back in 2019.
Lithium started at capital fm in 2013 as an intern and later got employed.
He hosted Jam Show every Friday from 3-7 pm. He'd also continue with Club Capital show from 11pm to 2am.
He was not married but had plans to, one day.
