Kenyan artistes took time to remember one of their own, the late Issah Mmari – also known as E-Sir – who passed on 14 years ago.
On Thursday Kenyan artistes and fans of the singer took to their social media pages to remember their time with the rapper 14 years since his death.
E-Sir died in a tragic road accident in 2003 when the car he was travelling in veered off the road and rolled. Another top Kenyan act Nameless who was with him in the car survived the accident.
Nameless, Sauti Sol and Big Pin were among the artistes who posted special tributes to the departed rapper on their Instagram pages.
Below are some of their tributes:

15.03.2003,went for a sleep over at E-SIR’s place ..Interesting thing was that we had a very weird conversation,just not any type of convo we would have on a normal day. Religion being a very sensitive one,he brought it up and was advising that we should always go to church or The mosque and be prayerful regardless of whether you are Muslim or Christian. Being some of the last hours,that was just too deep of him. Talked to him after the show at Dimples and he was happy he killed the show and was to come and tell me the next day but it never came to pass. 14years on,MISS YOU BRO. #LEGEND_LIVES_ON!! Pirates Mpaka kufa #keepthefireburning #Southc 🙏🏽
Esir was one of the rising stars that diminished too soon i celebrate him #MsetoCelebratingESir
