Avicii wanted to come to Kenya before his tragic deathReading Time: 1 minute
The late EDM superstar Avicii wanted to come to Kenya before he met his death. He was found in his hotel room in Moscat, Oman where he had been on holiday. His family released a statement that the artist had taken his life on April 20, 2018.
Tim Bergling was one of the culture movers in electronic music in the 2010’s with his hit song “Levels” becoming an instant classic even before its release. The 28-year-old producer and DJ had stepped back and scaled things down after 2017’s eye-opening documentary, True Stories. He bought a $10 million mansion in 1474 Blue Jay Way, Hollywood Hills and was sober; making music with his friends and inventing Avicii 2.0.
A number of Kenyan outlets were led to believe that Avicii was buying a house in Kenya back in 2015 which was, unfortunately, an April Fool’s hoax.
I did NOT buy a house in Kenya (even though I heard it's beautiful there). It was apparently a (pretty lame) april fool's joke…

Avicii was planning to visit Kenya after he released his album, according to Spin.com, to record the Maasai community. His posthumous album ‘Tim’ Is Out Now.
