Veteran Kenyan rapper Kimya Miyaki is battling a serious drug addiction.
According to very close sources, the rapper who resides in Githurai has been spotted in drug joints in Nairobi’s Mlango Kubwa area on several occasions.
Kimya, the youngest brother to rapper Bamboo and singer Victoria Kimani has been away from the music industry for some time now. He allegedly spends most of his time in Mlango Kubwa getting his daily fix.
The source says, Kimya has been doing some heavy drugs and at time is very disoriented. He has also allegedly been taken to rehab thrice by his family but he always ends up relapsing.
Kimya was for a long time a close friend of veteran Kenyan artiste Johnny Vigeti whose career also nosedived because of drug and substance abuse.
There has been nothing much from the rapper recently in the rapper’s career but he has been trying to make a comeback since.
In December 2016, Kimya lashed out at Khaligraph Jones on social media for failing to give him collaboration.
He even further threatened to beef with Khaligraph if he denied him a chance to work together.
“Yo tufanye kazi. Quit with the strangeness homie. Ama you want it to become beef? Cause we can do that too. I ain’t asking again lil homie. I can give you a free track or we can do it at your spot…,” Kimya wrote at the time.
Kimya is among some of the most celebrated rappers from back in the day. There was a time the rapper was rumored to have shifted to the Gospel industry just like his big brother.
