Ayub Ogada
Job Seda (1956 – 1 February 2019), better known as Ayub Ogada, was a Kenyan singer, favoring the nyatiti (an eight-stringed lyre with its origins credited to the Luo, a tribe in Western Kenya) as his characteristic instrument.

We were saddened to learn of the death of singer and musician Ayub Ogada at the age of 63. He is regarded as one of the greatest Kenyan artists of all time, and one of the finest exponents of his primary instrument, the Nyatiti.
