Kenya: Bongo Star Ommy Dimpoz Flown to Germany in Critical Condition

18 December 2018

Bongo flava star Ommy Dimpoz has been hospitalized again, just when his fans thought he had started getting better after an operation that had put him into comma for nine days.

Reports from Tanzania indicate that Ommy has been flown to Germany in critical condition.

His rehabilitation from a major throat surgery is said to have turned tragic.

The 'Hello Baby' hit maker was in June hospitalised in Sandton, South Africa, where he underwent a 12 hour surgery that involved opening up his throat.

After the surgery, Ommy remained in comma for nine days before gaining consciousness.

He recuperated at the hospital for three month before relocating to Mombasa.


Reports now indicate that since returning home, Ommy's condition deteriorated after the surgery wound became septic.

"Baada ya kufanyiwa upasuaji ule wa awali, Dimpoz alikwenda kupumzika Mombasa. Baadaye alipokwenda kuchekiwa baada ya miezi mitatu kupita, alikutwa na tatizo hili la usaha, akapatiwa matibabu kisha kurejea nchini. Tuliamini sasa Dimpoz anarudi kwenye hali yake maana alionekana kupata afueni kubwa lakini ndivyo hivyo tena, hali ilibadilika ghafla," a family source was quoted by Global TV.

Ommy, who is signed to Alikiba's RockStar4000 record labe,l is expected to undergo another surgery in Germany to clean up the puss.

The singer tribulations started April this year during Alikiba's wedding when he first noticed he had trouble swallowing food.

In a past interview, Ommy disclosed that his South African doctors informed him his illness was as a result of food poison.
