Very very sad news that our old friend Mose Fanfan has died of a suspected heart attack in Nairobi on Thursday.
Though he lived in London he had been in Kenya since April touring and recording.
After coming to prominence as a key guitarist in Franco's OK Jazz in the late 1960s Mose first headed to Zambia for a time before joining the wave of Congolese musicians who spearheaded the East African rumba revolution in the 1970s. It was in the early 1980s that Mose moved to London and his solo recording career began.
RIP Mose 'Fan Fan' Se Sengo
