The family of Felix Orinda alias DJ Evolve has dismissed rumours that he is dead.
Speaking exclusively to K24 Digital, his brother Andrew Orinda said that DJ Evolve was doing well and even having lunch together with the family at their home in Fedha Estate.
“God forbid! Those are very dangerous rumours and I can assure you that he is okay. He is even having his lunch,” he said.
On Tuesday morning, social media was awash with rumours that the DJ had died due to an injury he sustained in January 2020- after he was allegedly shot at by Embakassi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino.
The matter is still in court.
The entertainer who until the shooting worked as a DJ at B Club, Kilimani in Nairobi was admitted to hospital and released mid-2020.
Orinda is currently at their home in Fedha Estate where he was taken after being discharged from Nairobi Hospital.
In February, his father John Orinda told the media that his son was really suffering and was always in pain due to the bullet that got stuck in his brain.
In Mid- January 2019, a CCTV footage emerged where Babu Owino was captured drawing his gun and shooting at the entertainer inside the club.
Babu was later arrested over the incident.
On July 8, the MP who is serving his first term in Parliament obtained a gag order barring the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) from discussing the merit of the court case
