Octopizzo has denied being involved in the death of a Strathmore University student.

Its alleged that Octopizzo found 19-year-old, Kenneth Abom, in his house at Woodley estate last Thursday and chased him with a machete.

Kenneth is said to have later jumped from the 4th floor of the apartment and was rushed to Nairobi Women’s hospital before being moved to Kenyatta National Hospital.

“He just took his stuff and went home then like an hour later we heard he jumped,” Octopizzo told a local TV station.

Kenneth succumbed to death on Saturday with the father, Aggrey Abom claiming he had a cut on the right side of his head which he suspects was hit with a blunt object, allegations Octopizzo denied.

“No, I did not hit the boy. His father was the first person I talked to after the incident. I did not know what he came to do in my house. An hour later, we heard that the boy dropped from the fourth floor,” the “ivo ivo” singer said.

Witnesses and neighbors expressed shock from the incident terming the neighborhood as quiet and peaceful and everyone knew each other.
