A postmortem conducted by Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor has revealed that DJ Evolve's mother, Mary Hongo, died of swelling and rupture of the heart. 

Mary Hongo collapsed and died at her Lucky Summer home in Nairobi aged 54.

Addressing the press on Saturday, September 25, Kennedy Ochieng, who is the family spokesperson, disclosed that the DJ's mother died of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). 

"It is the ballooning, swelling, and eventual rupture of the artery that supplies blood from the aorta," Ochieng told the press. 

An abdominal aortic aneurysm is an enlarged area in the lower part of the major vessel that supplies blood to the body (aorta). 

Felix Orinda popularly known as DJ Evolve hit the headlines in January 2020 after he was allegedly shot at a popular city club.

DJ Evolve has been bedridden for almost two years following the shooting incident and Mary has been taking care of her.

Embakasi East MP Babu Owino led the public in condoling with the family and DJ Evolve after the death of Mary. 

“Mum you were a mother to me, and a friend. As a family, we are deeply saddened by your loss. You are forever loved and treasured. To my friend Felix and your family. May God grant you peace, strength, and comfort to go through this difficult moment in your lives.

“Mum You always told us to be strong no matter how big the storm is and to always put God first. Rest in peace till we meet again,” MP Owino eulogised.
