The DJ whose real identity is Alexander Murimi Nderi, reportedly ingested a toxic substance at the Capital FM station’s Lonrho House offices in Nairobi City.
He was rushed to Nairobi Hospital, where he was pronounced dead while receiving medication. Aged 34, the deceased was an introverted, and rarely shared with friends or family the details of his highs and lows.
According to close sources, the late DJ Lithium has in the last two years been undergoing psychotherapy for depression. He was diagnosed with depression in 2019. At the time, he was experiencing unending backaches and headaches.
According to one of his close friends identified as Mutuku, Lithium’s depression symptoms worsened after the Covid-19 pandemic.
Lithium joined Capital FM as an intern in 2013. He’d later be employed by the station. He hosted Jam Show on Fridays at 3pm to 7pm, and later the Club Capital show from 11pm to 2am.
The deceased has since been hailed by friends and family as a good person. "Alex was a beloved son, brother, cousin, uncle, and grandson. He will be sorely missed. We humbly request to be allowed private time to grieve our loss," read part of a statement by his family on Friday, January 21.
although the late DJ Lithium was unmarried, he always remained hopeful that he will one day get a family of his own.
