Heaven Scooped Up A Saint…

You used to make us laugh all the time acting crazy you always spoke your mind
I know that you’re with Christ and i feel you left early, everybody has their time
I never will forget your smile the freestyle and the gifts that you possessed
God was tired of waiting to bring you home so He came to relieve you of your strength

(Cam, Heaven Scooped Up a Saint, off the album, The Platform)


I attended Kabz’ funeral meeting at Parklands Baptist yesterday. I got there late but I got to listen to some people’s recollection of Kabz’ life and the above song by Cam came to mind. It was clear that Kabz was hilarious; he loved everybody and touched people where it mattered to them.

Kabz has been instrumental in the Kenyan Gospel Music Industry. He has acted as a mentor to many musicians and, to the testimony of many, been the butler who ushered many through the ins and outs of this industry. He was a very gifted man and his music stood the test of time.

Kabz passed on on Sunday, 6th April, 2014. He is outlived by his wife, Njesh(who is expectant) and 2 year old son Ulani.
