Jahmby Koikai, also known as Fyah Mama, was born on November 24, 1986. Koikai was born and raised in Dagoretti, Nairobi, Kenya.

Just like Jahmby, her mother was also a strong woman who raised Jahmby all by herself.

In fact, her mother had to take care of Jahmby’s grandmother as well.

Jahmby’s grandmother was suffering from stage 4 pancreatic cancer at the time. And sadly, she passed away in 2016.

Jahmby Koikai And Her Battle With Endometriosis

For more than 20 years, Jahmby battled this deadly disease, where tissue similar to the uterine lining grows outside the uterus.

In the case of Jahmby, her condition had gone from bad to worse over time. Her disease didn’t only affect her reproductive organs. Instead, it spread to her lungs, heart, appendix, teeth, and spine.

The talented musician went on countless painful surgeries and treatments with a smile on her face.

Jahmby tried her best to raise awareness about this issue through her social media handles.

In fact, a few days prior to her demise, she posted on Instagram to educate people about this disease.

Jahmby Koikai Was A Part Of Earthzone Band

In Kenya, Jahmby was popularly known as the Reggae Queen. She was bestowed with this name because she hosted reggae shows on Metro FM and Q FM.

This job in an influential radio station gifted her widespread recognition.

Additionally, before moving to the USA for treatment, she was a regular host on the popular NTV show “The Trend.”

Besides that, she was also a part of Earthzone Band, a versatile musical group. The band was famous for performing reggae music in Kenya.

They also organized concerts every now and then.

Before the demise of Jahmby’s late grandmother, they hosted a concert with the aim of raising funds.

Even after enduring so much pain, she tried to make a comeback in 2020 by performing at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC).

Her performance was dedicated to legendary musician Buju Banton.

But do you know what’s impressive about that performance?

Well, at the time of that performance, one of her lungs had already collapsed.

Jahmby Koikai Aspired To Be The Political Leader

Jahmby’s heart was engraved with a deep love for her community. She was disgraced by the lack of growth in her region.
