In Big Numbers, Kenyans in America Mourn Death of DJ Vice


The death of Dj Vice has sent shockwaves across the Kenyan community in America. Even people who did not know him are hurting at the loss of such a young and promising Kenyan.

Davis Mwago was driving on Interstate 287 North ramp to  Interstate 78 East when he lost control of his vehicle, crashed, and lost his life.

According to New Jersey State Trooper Charles Marchan, the 35-year-old DJ hit a metal guardrail on the exit ramp before hitting the right guardrail which sent him hitting a metal fence and a tree.

It was a double tragedy for the family, as it is being reported that his mom passed on upon hearing the news of her son’s demise

These are some of the messages of condolences by family and friends:

  1. Lilly Richards

You were one of the coolest souls around
You showed up for Jere Kim-Jahazi and myself in a suit💕
You gave us our last dose of music last Saturday but we didn’t know it
It is hard to believe that you have left this world.

Shine on your way Mr. Deejay D-vice .
Our Sincere condolences to the family
