The Sauti Academy and the Kenyan music fraternity as a whole has lost one of their own, Charles Lwande. This year is off to a sad start as the rapper, singer, songwriter and guitarist lost his life last night with the cause of his death yet to be established.
He shared the stage with artists from the same Music school Vereso, Phy, Serro, Andrew Wambua and others alike.
Many friends and family of Charles fondly known as Cee L took to Social Media to offer condolences and tributes.
Sauti Sol’s Polycarp: I am really struggling to believe this. Still in shock! Worst news in a very long time. You have left us too soon brother! Too soon! You indeed were a very talented soul oozing so much musicality and a great man too. I was truly honored having you in my studio a couple of times. May The Lord rest your soul in Eternal Peace @ceelnuke.
Phy: Oh no!! It can't be true. I literally just spoke to you jana jioni borrowing your guitar for today.Charles Lwande aki no!!!! I see people post these sad things on social media and somehow my heart breaks for them but honestly life goes on. Today I've felt it in the deepest way and I just don't know what to think.
