Fare Thee Well Queen Jane
The death of local music maestro Queen Jane from menengitis has robbed Kenya of yet another national icon. You need not understand the language she sang in to appreciate the authenticity and energy QJ radiated.
Those not-too young will reminisce with her vocal prowess during her stint at Mbiri stars with Musaimo. Her landmark number Mwendwa (my dear) KK remains an household tune defining her unique melody. Fare thee well Nyambura and may your music live on.
