Designer and founder of 254 Fashion Mike Mulwa is dead.
Mike was, until his death, living in the US State of Atlanta while working in Birmingham, Alabama. The 29-year-old lost his life in a perceived violent robbery at a petrol station he was working at, in which he sustained gunshot wounds.
He was rushed to University of Alabama Trauma hospital where he underwent a surgical operation but later succumbed to his injuries.
The news of Mulwa’s death has been received with utmost shock and sadness. The friends and family of Mulwa described him as a man who was soft-spoken and lovable, one who lit up a room whenever he walked into it.
He has left a huge gap in the fashion and design industry, given that many of his fans have since come forward to say that he was their inspiration and looked up to him for motivation in the industry.
Mike is survived by a wife, two kids and an unborn child. His wife is, reportedly, still in shock and very upset by the demise of her husband.
The Birmingham Police have since asked requested anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the perpetrators of the crime to volunteer it to them.
