Sanaipei Tande’s Father Manasseh Lemaiyian Dies

Celebrated musician, actor and media personality Sanaipei Tande has lost her father, Manasseh Lemaiyian Tande.

Mr Tande died on Friday, October 13 after a brief illness, his family said in his obituary.

They described him as a remarkable man who touched their hearts with his love and kindness.

“Manasseh’s life was an inspiring testament to strength and resilience, leaving an indelible mark on the lives of those who had the privilege of knowing him. His memory will forever warm our hearts,” the family said.

Mr Tande is survived by his wife Lucy, Sanaipei’s brother Saimi and two grandchildren.

He will be laid to rest on Thursday, October 19 at the family’s residence in Matasia, Kajiado County.

At press time, Sanaipei had yet to publicly comment on her father’s passing on but in previous talks and media interviews, the ‘Amina’ singer has narrated growing up in a close-knit family which she describes as “an unmatched support system that has been there from day one.”

In a recent speech the celebrated artist gave on the Engage Talk stage, Ms Tande hailed her father as an upstanding man who taught her to be truthful.

“My father is an upstanding dad and an amazing man, diligent, hardworking and honest. He is a people person,” she says in the speech published online last Thursday, a day before Mr Tande’s passing.

“He is liberal but firm; liberal enough for you to know that there is love and firm enough for you to know he is in control.”
