Road To Be Named After Legend Kenyan Rapper E-Sir.

“In honour of this iconic Kenyan artist who was not only a great talent and friend to many but a pioneer in his genre of music we are calling on the Nairobi County Council (NCC) and The Office of the Ombudsman to name a road, drive or street in South C in 'E-Sir's" name as a way of celebrating artistic talent and in honor of his memory.”

Kenyan renowned musician, Nameless, has petitioned Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja, as well as the city’s County Assembly and Transport/Roads docket, to immortalize E-sir by naming a road or street in South C after the late rap legend.

In the petition that has gathered over 1,000 signatures, launched at, the popular musician, real name David Mathenge, who was with E-sir at the time of the accident that claimed his life in 2003, credited E-Sir with changing the course of the Kenyan music industry, praising him for releasing timeless tracks which continue to hit the airwaves long after his death.

Issah Mmari alias E-Sir was involved in a tragic road accident, that claimed his life, 19 years ago, aged 21, in a tragic road accident along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway on his way back to Nairobi from a concert on the 16th of March 2003.

His hard work, passion and humility, embedded in his great talent continues to inspire generations after his passing, years on. The naming of a road after him will celebrate these great values and recognize the importance of the arts in our culture.

E-Sir, real name Issah Mmari, is arguably one of the region’s greatest and most influential rappers of all time.

May he continue resting peacefully.
