Funds trickle in for DJ O’Neal.


Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and County Assembly Speaker Aharab Khatri were among the well wishers who made contributions towards DJ O’Neal’s medical kitty.

Joho made a surprise appearance at the fundraiser held virtually on Saturday and made a personal contribution of Sh50,000, while Khatri chipped in with Sh25,000.

Joho had earlier made a contribution of Sh1 million in support of the DJ and actor’s medical expenses.

O’Neal has been battling cancer of the plasma cells and has since started chemotherapy sessions that costs Sh100,000 a week.

The full treatment is estimated to cost Sh4 million. “You know who your friend is when you are in need.

All said and done O’Neal has been our brother, is our brother, has been a friend and I feel encouraged that people are standing up with him.

We are not just going to support him but we will also pray for him. I feel really encouraged by the strong will that our brother has and that is what you need to defeat any disease,” said Joho.
