"Kwa majina ni Grace Atieno nimeoleka kwa hii boma na Stephen Otieno. Nasikia vibaya sana kumpoteza baba. Nasikia vibaya kupoteza baba mwenye alikuwa akinijali all the time, but...
"(My name is Grace Atieno I am married here and I feel bad losing a father that cared about me but...)," she said amid tears.

"Sisi ni marafiki wa Steve tunasaidiana na Steve katika mziki na marafiki husimama saa ile kuna shida na sa ile kuna furaha. Saa ile kuna shida ndio tunasimama nawe, tumetoka mbali hadi tumefika hapa tumesema asante.
"(We are Steve's friends, we do music together and friends stand together during tough times.) To Steve be strong these things happen, I am also an orphan so you have to be strong, Thank you," one of Stevo's friends said.
