Kai, Sleep Well Darling.


It feels wrong to be writing this about such a beautiful young man, a talented rapper and a good mate. Kai.

Firstly, I want to pass my condolences and prayers to his family and girlfriend, what has happened is horrific, sudden and extremely sad. I hope you can all find strength in one another to get through this difficult time of grief and loss. I hope my words will bring some sort of assurance that, in this life he passed his amazing energy on to everyone around him and was kind.

I met Kai last year when I joined the Wise Monkeys Podcast and since that day he had shown me nothing but love and support, he was happy to let me into an area of his life that was evolving, his music.

I saw him, I saw his kindness, his loyalty to his friends, to Ope and to Wise Monkeys Media and to those who supported him daily. His journey was unfolding and his talent for telling stories through rap was special, it’s just unjust that a special moment doesn’t seem as special until something like this happens.

I have watched these videos over and over again, I can only imagine all the laughter and heartfelt moments with family and friends that will be bringing comfort at this time.

I did not want to create a post that details the horrific murder of our friend, 24 year old Kai, you can read about the events that took place here. I only wish to show my support to those closest to him and highlight his kind nature, good energy and talent.

That was the plan, to show everyone your talent and for you to continue to make your mark.

There are some people who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains.

Kai, sleep well darling. And shine bright forever.

Anyone with information that could assist police in the investigation of the murder of Kai McGinley should call 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting reference 7135/09Feb. 

Stay safe and take care,

Sammi xx
