Popular Kikuyu musician Jimmy Wayuni Githinji is dead.
Ruiru OCPD Phineas Ringera said that the musician's vehicle reportedly rammed into a lorry as he was driving to the city.
Popularly known by the stage name Jimmy Wa Yuni, benga maestro was known for several popular hit songs, particularly on Kikuyu vernacular radio and TV stations.
But the deceased musician was unpopular with many women for his seemingly sexist lyrics that portrayed them in negative light.
One such song Airitu a Ruiru (Ruiru girls) angered many women because in it the singer accused women from Ruiru of being terrible lovers capable of killing a husband by eating him up.
