Capital FM radio station DJ Lithium, also known as DJ Alex Nderi, has died of probable suicide.
The DJ was pronounced dead on arrival at the Nairobi Hospital, according to Kilimani OCS Muturi Mbogo.
Mbogo claimed the DJ was brought to the facility after collapsing at the Capital FM headquarters in Nairobi’s Central Business District, Lonroh House.
Some of Nderi’s coworkers speculated that the DJ passed out after consuming an unknown drug. They attempted unsuccessfully to revive him.
Nderi is alleged to have left behind a suicide note, the contents of which are now being investigated.
On Fridays, the 34-year-old presented the Club Capital program from 11:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., as well as Jam from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Later in the day, a postmortem is likely to be performed.
According to a statement released by Capital FM, the DJ died at the Nairobi Hospital after fainting in the workplace.
Lithium’s family was informed and properly briefed about the issue, according to the statement.
“The circumstances of Alex’s death are a family concern that has been taken over by the appropriate authorities.”
Danny Munyi, Capital FM’s Programmes Director, described Alex as “a terrific addition to the bigger Capital FM team, including enormous skill as a DJ, producer, and possessed an intriguing “right-wing” sense of humor.”
Munyi stated that the station would honor the DJ by celebrating his enthusiasm for the firm, his direct breakfast team, and other mixmasters, as well as cherishing the experiences they spent with him.
He also asked people to respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.
The Kilimani Police Station OCS, Muturi Mbogo, acknowledged the occurrence to the media and announced that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has taken over the investigation.
According to him, the deceased’s body was sent to Lee Funeral Home, where a post-mortem would be performed to determine the cause of death.
The shocking spike in suicides in Kenya has sparked widespread concern, Reports gathered lately revealed that over 500 persons committed suicide in the first six months of 2021, according to data from the National Police Service (NPS).
Dr. Frank Njenga, the Presidential Adviser on Mental Health, corroborated the figures, stating that the problem has gotten worse recently, maybe as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.
