The New Year started badly for the family of veteran Kikuyu gospel musician John Ndung'u following the death of his son James Mwangi Ndung'u.

Born on September 6th in 1993, Mwangi died on 1st January, 2023 at the age of 29 years.

He was suddenly taken ill in the dawn of the New Year shortly after celebrating with his young family at his home.

His father, John Ndung'u, is an ordained priest of Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) and has been in the music industry since 1990s.

Some of his popular songs include Gatheri, Mwitio wa Mwiri, 1930, Ndagitari, Moridekai, Gikuu Kia Johana among others.

The deceased was the producer to all his father's songs released between 2012 to December 2022.

Mwangi produced Rucio Ruaku for his dad in 2022 June, Nindiragira Muoyo and Nikuri Ngai in December last year.

He leaves behind a young family comprising his wife and little kids. He will be laid to rest at his father's home in Naivasha on Friday, January 6th.

Renowned Kameme FM presenter and ex-Kiambu Woman Representative aspirant Mercy Nungari eulogized Mwangi as a dedicated and kind person saying his death was a huge blow to the gospel ministry.

"Oooh no..Soo heartbreaking..Mwangi you helped me Soo much in building Kamiti Maximum Prison studio...You worked on albums to the inmates, why now? Too soon ..Woooi may the lord comforts your dad Rev. John Ndungu and family plus your young family ..We have no option but to say though, rest well Mwangi, say hi to mom Rev Susan," Nungari posted on Facebook.

"Not only did John Ndung'u lose a son, we have lost a great and young talented producer and Musician as a Nation," eulogized G-Live Studio Productions, the Official managers of John Ndung'u music.
