A Nairobi family has pointed an accusing finger at rapper Henry Ohanga, popularly known as Octopizzo, over their teenage son’s death on Saturday.
The family of 19-year-old Kenneth Abom suspects the rapper injured their son on the head during a scuffle at his house earlier last week.
Complications from the injury might have led to the boy’s death, the parents suspect.
But speaking to KTN, the rapper denied the allegations, saying that Kenneth broke into his house last Thursday.
According to neighbours, the rapper was seen pursuing the boy from his house but he was immediately told to stop because Abom lived in the estate.
Speaking on the phone with KTN, Octopizzo said; “No, I did not hit the boy. His father was the first person I talked to after the incident. I did not know why he came in my house. An hour later, we heard that the boy dropped from the fourth floor,” Octopizzo said.
According to the deceased’s brother, Mr Paul Abom, Kenneth came running to the house which is on the fourth floor with a cut on the right side of his head and a blood-stained shirt.
JUMPED THROUGH WINDOW
“He went straight to the bathroom to clean himself up and the next thing we knew he had jumped through the window to the ground,” said Paul.
