Afro dancehall artist Ali Yusuf alias Arrow Bwoy is in mourning the untimely demise of his father barely a month after he was hospitalized for reasons not disclosed.

Arrow Bwoy posted a lit candle with an Islamic prayer to which he captioned "INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAYHI RAJIUN REST IN PEACE DAD."

The artist, who is currently on a tour of the USA, shared the news via his social media pages, sparking reactions from his fans, followers, and colleagues most of whom shared their condolences.

Among those who shared the condolences include his girlfriend Nadia Mukami who also is a musician who shared a picture of his boyfriend on Instagram with the caption, "May the God of strength."

Other media personalities who shared condolence messages include Felix Odiwuor aka Jalang'o, Maina Kageni, singers Femi One, Gilad, Fena Gitu, Carol Radull, and Alex Mwakideu.

He's had collaborations with the likes of Demarco, Nandy, Mayorkun, B Classic, Jackie Chandiru, Prezzo, and Otile Brown.
