Barely a month after Odibets came to the rescue of ailing Kenyan football player Ezekiel Otuoma, the betting firm has one again lent a helping hand to the sports and entertainment industry.
Under their Odimtaani initiative, the firm has come to the aid for ailing reggae DJ Lastborn (Benson Ouma) who has been bedridden for the past few months.
The turntablist suffered a stroke that has affected his speech.
“When he first suffered stroke, he was able to do things on his own, he could walk and even talk. But when it reoccurred, it affected him completely, he could not talk or even feed himself,” said Lillian Ouma, the DJ’s sister.
Through Odibets’ support, DJ Lastborn will be able to receive treatment that had been estimated to be of a tune of KSh1.5 million.
The betting firm will also provide upkeep and a years’ rent for the veteran reggae DJ who has entertaining Kenyans for the past few decades.
“We decided to support DJ Lastborn who has been ailing for quite sometime. As a brand, we are committed to giving back to the community and supporting worthy causes,” said Odibets Country Marketing manager Aggrey Sayi.
Last month, Odibets settled a Sh1.5 million hospital bill for Otuoma, the ailing former AFC Leopards player.
Otuoma was diagnosed with motor neurone Disease (MND), in November 2020, a condition that brought his career to an abrupt halt.
He is set to receive treatment in Germany.
