Reggae fraternity and Odibets under their 'Odimtaani' initiative has come to the aid of ailing reggae DJ Lastborn.

Benson Ouma popularly known as DJ Lastborn has been bedridden for the past few months after he suffered a stroke for the second time. 

In a recent interview with Ghetto Radio, Lastborn's sister Lilian said the second stroke made him lose his speech and also affected his right eye.

"When he first suffered a stroke, he was able to do things on his own, but when it reoccurred, it affected him completely. He could not talk or even feed himself."

Odibets has promised to support, DJ Lastborn treatment that has been estimated to be Sh1.5 million and provide upkeep and a years’ rent for the veteran reggae DJ.

"We decided to support DJ Lastborn who has been ailing for quite some time. As a brand, we are committed to giving back to the community and supporting worthy causes," said Odibets Country Marketing manager Aggrey Sayi.

Lastborn's sister Lilian thanked Odibets and the entire reggae fraternity for coming out and helping her brother.
