On Monday night, Ugandan rapper Jocelyn Tracy Keko appeared intoxicated and in a very terrible state during a series of Instagram live videos.
The ex Sony Music Entertainment rapper, now based in Canada, has been off the music radar for quite a while.
Her latest music project is Nkola Mpya on which she is featured by Flex D’Paper on his 2021 album Kampala Boy.
As various fans anticipated her music return this year, she only returned in a forgettable shape; broken hair, a pale and scaly skin, smoking and drinking.
At one point in the video seen by MBU, she cleans her nose with her hands, smacks her lips, and flashes the middle finger sign before grabbing her lighter to light what appears to be a cigarette.
Upon seeing the current state of one of Uganda’s greatest female rappers, netizens have reacted with most asking for her to be helped.
Her fans, followers, and fellow celebrities in Uganda and abroad want her found and checked into rehab. They have hope she can return to sanity.
Below are some of the reactions we gathered:
Keko. Damn. That hurts.— Ruyonga (@ruyongamusic) January 11, 2022
Such a helpless feeling. Prayers up, especially for peace, for Keko. I say come home but I know it's not a location thing.
Peace. For real….

Somebody needs to help KEKO!! If you go on Instagram and watch her LIVE video , you will stay away from drugs!!— Sheilah C Gashumba (@SheilahGashumba) January 10, 2022
Watching that Keko video reminds me of how tough celebrity life is. Y’all don’t don’t how many times we get offered free drugs! It’s wild! Well, not just celebs but ordinary people get “free offers” too. Please always say NO to free weed, pills and especially that white line. ❤️— Charles Denzel Mwiyeretsi (@DenzelUG) January 11, 2022
Keko – I hope she pulls through whatever it is she is dealing with.— Useful Idiot (@ZeeroBrain) January 11, 2022
I am sure she will….only wish people treated her with grace in such moments instead of the judgement & assumptions as seen from some.

In 2013, KEKO did drop Make You Dance ft. Madtraxx at Alfredos and had the whole bar dance to the tune for 20mins straight. Wishing you nothing but a bounce back, we love you Keko ❤️. Don't give up the fight 🕯️ pic.twitter.com/3qQ6VFYLzo— Sipho Nyiiro Nasif (@SiphoUganda) January 10, 2022

Sending prayers to Keko. May God transform her weakness into strength, her suffering into compassion, her sorrow into lasting joy and her pain into comfort. May she trust in His goodness and find hope in his faithfulness, even in the midst of her struggles and addictions! pic.twitter.com/TohUbNhHxE— Lyrical Mycheal 🦁 (@LyricalMycheal) January 10, 2022

She was home chilling happily and haters watching her livestream called the cops 😅. Seriously, what do you think the cops are going to do? I bet they left shortly. https://t.co/usn1lYXOvp— Tune in to RX Radio (@jamesonen) January 11, 2022
