Farewell Kanumba The Great: Photos from the burial at Kinondoni Cemetery
We have lost the biggest artist in the Tanzanian film industry. Steven Kanumba, who was at his prime, achieved what very few have by crossing over to other film industries like Nollywood from Nigeria. He was undoubtedly The Great in Tanzania and was headed for greater things in our continent and globally.
Thousands of people scrambled all over the cemetery, climbing walls and dodging police officers to have a final look at Kanumba before being lowered in his grave. Through the commotion fellow Bongo Movie actress Irene Uwoya also lost consciousness and had to be carried away for further help.
Your legacy shall live on along with our memories of you.
May the Lord rest your soul in eternal peace.
