Patricia Kihoro had this to say Once, when I was a more fearless artist, I got to jam with Ayub Ogada. What we shared then, several artists being open, vulnerable and free has always stuck with me. He spoke strongly about his energy, about trusting his gut and his instinct and I never forgot that. Thank you.
