Luo Ohangla Queen Lady Maureen is dead

The Luo community is mourning after the queen of Ohangla music Maureen Achieng’Achieng’ popularly known as Lady Maureen died on Saturday morning, July 11, following a long illness.

Her death comes a month after news spread on social media that the Luo sensation had passed on, news that her mother refuted saying that her daughter was alive though still sick in the hospital.

According to her family, the songbird breathed her last at 3 am on Saturday in Migori, where she was recovering after being discharged from hospital last week.

Confirming her death, Lady Maureen cousin Bella Achieng said the musician was discharged from hospital after doctors said she was out of danger.

The songstress had been admitted at Pastor Machage Memorial Hospital in Migori last month and was just discharged a week ago.

In the last two years, Lady Maureen has been in and out of hospitals battling different kinds of illnesses.

Migori County Governor Okoth Obado and the county Woman Representative Dr. Pamela Odhiambo send their messages of condolences to the fallen star’s family.

Maureen’s woes were made public early this year when she was reported stranded at a Kisumu hospital after being discharged.

This is because her mother refused to take her in after an earlier family misunderstanding, which left the musician and her mother not talking for some time.

Her fellow Luo artist Akothee posted her woes on social media, revealing that Maureen was neglected by family, friends, and also supporters, and several Kenyans offered to help her.

Lady Maureen becomes the third renown Luo musician to die in the last two months after Omondi Longlilo and Abney Jachinga.

Jachinga died after a short illness while Longlilo died after a long battle with cancer.

Two months before her illness, Maureen was arrested and detained for nine days in Tanzania, alongside 15 band members, for working in the country without permits.
