The Kenya reggae fraternity and betting firm Odibets under their Odimtaani initiative has has
come to the aid for ailing reggae DJ Lastborn.
Unknown to many, Benson Ouma popularly known as DJ Lastborn, has been bedridden for
the past few months. The turntablist suffered a stroke that affected his right side.
A second stroke made DJ Lastborn lose his speech.
“When he first suffered a stroke, he was able to do things on his own, he could walk and even
talk. But when it reoccurred, it affected him completely, he could not talk or even feed
himself,” said DJ Lastborn’s sister Lillian.
Through Odibets’ support, DJ Lastborn will be able to receive treatment that had been
estimated to be of a tune of Ksh1.5 million.
The betting firm will also provide upkeep and a years’ rent for the veteran reggae DJ who has

fraternity for coming out and helping my brother, words cannot express how grateful I am,”
