“The funeral service will be held at the graveside at Mugwambogo village, Kathunguri Sub-location, Kyeni South location, Kyeni division, Embu County”, read a Death and Funeral Announcement in our possession.

The DJ died of suspected suicide. Kilimani OCS Muturi Mbogo said DJ Lithium was pronounced dead on arrival at the Nairobi Hospital.

Police said he collapsed at the IT department in Capital FM offices on January 19 2022 in Nairobi.

Some of his workmates intimated the mixmaster collapsed after swallowing a substance that was still under police investigation. They tried to resuscitate him but failed.

DJ Lithium, 34, hosted Club Capital and the Jam shows on Fridays.

The DJ was said to be battling depression.  His friend Amayayi Mutuku told The Standard that the deceased was open about his struggles with depression.

"Depression makes one feel like he or she is alone. It broke my heart to see him in that space, even though we existed in his life," Mutuku said.

Capital FM’s Programmes Director Danny Munyi said the station has lost a great talent in a message sent relaying the employer’s condolences to the family.

“Alex was a great addition to the larger Capital FM team, encompassing great talent as a dj, producer and possessed an interesting 'right wing' sense of humour,”, said Mr Munyi.
