By Kevin Koech 

Celebrated Kikuyu musician Albert Gacheru is dead.

The musician took his last breath at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) after a long illness.

Gacheru is famed for the song Mwenda wakwa marirũ, which was a hit in the 1990s.

In the song, he indicated that most people appreciated their loved ones when they are dead rather than when they are alive.

Other songs he has composed include Mumunya, Hurry Hurry Waithera, Nindaguteire and Indo ciakwa.

Through his record label, Wamaitu Productions, the deceased helped produce musicians such as the late John DeMatthew and Queen Jane, Shari Martin and Mary Wambui.
