Popular Tanzanian musician REMMY ONGALA has died after a battle with ill health.
The singer passed away at his home in Dar es Salaam, it was confirmed on Monday (13Dec10).
Born in 1947 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ongala became known for his contributions to the local 'soukous' scene and Swahili rhythms.
He often used his songs to speak out against the Tanzanian government and was once targeted on grounds of immigration, although he was later handed nationality in the East African country.
Ongala, nicknamed Dr. Remmy for the inspirational messages in his songs, suffered a mystery illness 10 years ago and became paralysed, but he continued to perform gospel music until weeks before his death.
