Famous Ohangla Musician who rocked in the 2017 general elections with the NASA team, praising the then NASA leader Raila Odinga during campaigns has been neglected by her family. 

The renowned ohangla musician Maureen Achieng’ Otiu, popularly known as Lady Maureen, is stranded at a Kisumu hospital after being discharged.

Lady Maureen, who was admitted to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital (JOOTRH) was released but she didn't have a place to go.

" The mother has barred me from taking the singer to her place due to an unresolved family issue, ” said Ms. Nancy Achieng' who has been taking care of the musician in the hospital.

" Am sorry to say this but during her Dad's burial in Seme , she came few minutes before the old man was laid tò rest claiming she was in Mombasa and missed the morning flight, " a relative said.

" She never took her time to go and visit the father in hospital; never contributed even a cent for the burial despite having money and being famous by then and CAS Ken Obura by then a contender for Kisumu  Central MP worked in that funeral as if it was his own Dad, " she added.

Ken warned Lady Maureen about forgetting her family when life is "greener" on her side. In Ken's word Luo said " Nyaseme ber kod mor ma waneno e pinyni kalo, jodalau topod biro bedo" 

" There was also a time when the Dad was still alive and she was playing at Enigma Resort, Kibos,  the old man came to say hi because she was by then based in Nairobi and she refused to see him. She only directed the people who were selling tickets at the gate to give him Ksh 200. She wasn't on stage, she was having dinner with some 'waheshimiwa' at a table, a guy called  Ja'Katolo was the one still curtain-raising for her, " she narrated.

The neighbours said the row brew after she detached herself from the family. That's what could have caused the Anger from her family including her mother.
