Benga Maestro Albert Gacheru Wa Wairimu is dead aged 59.
The musician died at the Kenyatta National Hospital after a two month battle with pneumonia.
His brother Julius Ngunjiri termed Gacheru’s two moth battle with pneumonia as difficult.
The Mariru and Mumunya hit maker will be remembered for his fierce battle against the thriving music piracy in River Road.
His fight against music piracy saw his shop vandalized and music worth hundreds of thousands stolen.
