Top Producer J Blessings is reported to be among those who represented the Kenyan music industry at the event and who flew out to LA on Wednesday ahead of the burial ceremony.
Christian had been battling brain tumor and passed away in Los Angeles on Saturday.
In 2015, he suffered a seizure and was rushed to a US hospital, where he was diagnosed with parasagittal meningioma after doctors discovered he had a large tumor.
The Vuta Pumz and Shika More hit maker underwent a second operation after doctors discovered a blood clot in his brain after the first surgery.
He has left behind two children named Eli and Prince.
