"Maajabu" Gospel Artists Missed Dennis Mutara’s Dad Burial Ceremony

Dennis Mutara, a veteran Kikuyu gospel artist, laid his father to rest on Thursday in an emotional burial that was shunned by his fellow gospel artists.

Only two artists Kajei Salim and Solomon Ng’ang’a turned up for the burial to give him emotional support.

Mutara was overwhelmed with emotions throughout the burial and was seen in deep thoughts as he paid his last respect to his late father, who died after falling ill.

The burial was conducted by a Catholic priest and comes just a few days after Dennis sought for financial assistance from Kenyans of goodwill to offset the deceased hospital bill which had grown significantly.

Mutara has been sick since 2020 after being involved in a road accident. He was sometimes back accused of alcohol addiction but he strongly refuted the claims.

The renowned Kikuyu singer was later taken to rehab after spending three weeks at Avenue Hospital going through detox in March.

It is said that the gospel artiste had sunk into depression and had been using alcohol, something he denied in a past interview with content creator Jeremy Damaris.

When Mutara was at the top of his music career, everyone wanted to be associated with him and most Kikuyu gospel artists were literally begging him for collabos.

However, things went south after he fell ill after being involved in a fatal accident that almost claimed his life and left him nursing serious injuries.

The singer went broke in 2018 and relocated to the village to live with his parents.

He has been trying to make a comeback to the music industry in vain.
