Murdered fashion model Edwin Kiprotich Kiptoo, alias Chiloba, was laid to rest yesterday. Some of Chiloba's friends like Michelle Ntalami and Dennis Karuri did not attend his burial despite being vocal after his death.
Michelle has responded to why he had been absent during the burial. According to Michelle some of them showed up and paid their respects in ways people might not be privy to.
"Those who didn’t or couldn’t manage to don’t love him any less! You are one of those keyboard warriors just waiting to see who attended and who didn’t just to make people look bad," Michelle said.
Michelle and Chiloba were friends and she even revealed that he gave her flowers on Valentine's Day last year.
"I once shared a personal story with the world, and it moved him so much that he sought me out just to share some of his own love and light.
The first photo is of us on Valentine’s Day 2022, the very first time we met. He traveled all the way from Eldoret to Nairobi just to see me and give me this bouquet of roses, as he knew I wasn’t having the best one," she wrote.
Michelle through her social media handles shared a clip showing that she was attending a vigil organized for the late Chiloba in Nairobi.
"How about you post a tribute for Edwin Chiloba and remember him in love instead of all this bitterness? If not, let him rest. He is loved, and his love wins," she said.
"I had the most wonderful time today with the community, holding space for our friend Edwin Chiloba. Deeply honoured to make the speech and tribute to him. Let’s forever hold those close to our hearts the 5 things that we’ll remember him for," said Ntalami.
She also revealed that Savara Mudigi’s ‘Fashionista’ song was one of Chiloba's favourite songs.
