Two days later, Sagini passed on after being rushed to the hospital.
During the show the interviewer, after introducing the show, informed the viewers that although the guest was not feeling well and was under medication, he had managed to make it.
Thank you so much for coming Sagini, so you are not feeling well what is wrong? the show host posed.
To which the Moyo singer replied, Nanganga tu yaani, but najua nitakuwa fiti (Im staying strong, I know I will be well).
The vocalist was signed under rapper Khaligraph Jones Record Label, BluInk Corp and featured in his latest track Testimony.
Khaligraph, with whom the deceased has worked with before, shared the news on his Instagram account.
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing away of one of Kenyas greatest and promising talent Eliud Sagini better known to many as Sagini. Sagini left us this evening of Monday the 17th of Dec. 2018 after suffering a short illness. He was pronounced dead after arriving at the hospital.

He describes himself on his Facebook page SaginiMusic as an RnB, AfroPop, Zouk and Kapuka artiste; a vocalist, song writer and actor.
Do you have an interest in or connection to the Kenyan Rap Musician’s scene? I noticed the article never did say what he died from. Some young people can have heart problems or diabetes too, just like older folks.
Nothing unnatural about a young rap musician dying an unnatural death.
Did he have Obamacare?
The article said his publisher was a rap label, but the musician in question was RnB.
I had a stroke when I was 31. You never know how long you have.
No, but he had a third cousin in Nigeria who is a prince.
Oh, so THAT'S the dude who sent me the email this morning, asking for help in getting 50,000,000 Kenyan Shillings converted to USD.
If I had only known who his cousin was...
Too bad he didnt ask for an ambulance to the hospital.
Chic did a concert in Japan in 1996. In this clip, guitarist Nile Rogers intimates that Bernard is sick. Bernard acknowledges this, saying has got the "Tokyo flu" but he carries on.
Bernard died in his sleep that night of pneumonia.
Was he related to Obama? Isn’t everyone over there?
Never heard of him.
Nanganga tu yaani, but najua nitakuwa fiti
His nitakuwa was on the fritz.
At least he wasn't a doctor.
There is a tombstone in the Island Cemetary on Beaver Island Michigan that reads: “I told you I was sick.” I’ve seen it.
Some woman named Hillary writing a story about the death of a Kenyan crapper!! We can only hope!
Ah, a time when black artist’s talent was authentic. These men and women actually could play music and sing, not sample others creative work and use auto-tune.
