His death was announced by veteran musician, Clive Mono Mukundu who posted on social media platforms expressing his sadness. He said:
Member Of Popular Jazz Group, The Mbare Trio DiesR.I.P FRIDAY MBIRIMI:
Just 2days ago Hope Masike called me & said “Your friend Friday Mbirimi is not feeling well, go & see him’. I was planning to visit him on Friday after my exams, & before I did I have just got the news that he has passed on. This is a very bad period for sure.
Friday Mbirimi was one of the popular township Jazz group,the Mbare Trio.Despite our age gap we ended up being very close friends & we would exchange comical friendly insults on facebook together with Master Pablo Nakappa ,Tomson Chauke,Tendai Manatsa & others,some even thought the insults were real.
Of course all musicians are natural comics but mdara Friday was the funniest musician ever,& aidenha rough,we will miss all those moments.
I will look for one final insult kana shungu dzatidererei.

  1. Very sad loss and immensely agitating. Friday Mbirimi , A great talented soul gone departing from a world he had so much to offer yet the same remained cold seemingly watching the unrewarded ailing legend /hero from a yawning distance. His talented soul, may it peacefully rest in eternal peace amongst the angels of the God of Abraham in Jesus Mighty Name.
