It's been announced that hip hop unit SHAKKAZOMBIE rapper Big-O, also known as designer Osumi Takeshi, died on January 24 due to sepsis. He was 47 years old.
This announcement was made on the official website of MISTERGENTLEMAN, a fashion brand run by Osumi and Yoshii Yuichi. His funeral has already been held with relatives according to the will of the deceased and the bereaved family.
Osumi had been working on the brand's 2021-22 Fall/Winter Collection in his hospital room just before he died. This will be showcased at the 'Rakuten Fashion Week TOKYO' to be held in March. A memorial service with persons concerned, friends, and fans is scheduled to be held a few days later.
We would like to express our deepest condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time.
