Chira’s Grandmother's Tribute

In a touching tribute, Chira’s grandmother, Esther Njeri, shared heartfelt memories of the young man who deeply impacted many lives.

Esther Njeri, fondly known as Chira’s grandmother, reminisced about the bond they shared since childhood.

“Brian has left a huge void in our lives. I pray that God will raise a strong and vibrant one in one of my grandchildren. Chira always asked me to love him as he was, and I loved him with all his faults,” she said.

After losing his mother at the age of eight, Chira found solace in his grandmother’s care.

Njeri affectionately described him as her best friend and praised his selflessness and dedication to the welfare of her family.

Despite facing his own challenges, she revealed that Chira made numerous sacrifices, including dropping out of university to support his cousins.

 “Brian always worked hard to take care of his cousins. My grandson, I loved you from the moment you came into my life until your last breath. I’ll miss you so much,” said Njeri.

Past Interview

Snippets from Chira’s past interview were played during his burial ceremony.

“I have been raised alone, you people don’t be too quick to judge or write negative comments. Sometimes people go through a lot and my way to vent it out is to go live on TikTok. I’m more appreciated on my TikTok and that is why I give it more attention.

I’m also a loner; I don’t know how to interact with people…Grandmother I want to build you even a two-bedroom,” Chira said in part.

Salasya acknowledged being an admirer of Chira.

"I was to go to Mombasa, but I decided to postpone that to attend this burial. I am one of his close followers. He was an inspiration. He spoke good English, and I learned a lot from him, especially how he would express himself. That is why I had to be here. I liked how he was vocal and could express himself freely."
