The showbiz industry has been dealt a big blow following the death of Nana Gichuru in a grisly road accident this morning.

The actress, singer and photographer died after the BMW car she was driving rammed into a construction truck at Utawala area on the Eastern bypass.

Nana played various roles in several local productions. She also released a few singles and was passionate about photography.

Her death comes just 10 days after she posted on her social media page, what would sadly turn to be a reality;

“Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting 'HOLY CRAP!!!! WHAT A RIIIDEE....!!'

To lace, red lips and oversized headphones and this amazing ride!”

Messages of condolences from family, friends and fans have flooded social media.

SDE Team sends its sincere condolences to family and friends of Nana Gichuru. May she RIP.
