Sean Andrew has been making headlines after he paid tribute to his late grandad, president Mwai Kibaki.

His move to drop his pinky ring from his finger and drop it into the open grave of his guka - grandfather - got everyone talking.

Hours later after the highly publicised state funeral, Sean took to his social media to thank his followers for their support.

He wrote, "Tough day. Thank you all for the support."

His diehard followers took to the comments section of his last post and sent their condolences to the late president.

tafari_gwann: If it wasn't for Kibaki, I honestly don't know how my mom would've managed to put me through school. Mans was a legend and a visionary, for that he lives on . Not a bit part of him is gone . He is just less orderly , in a different form, leveled up, give thanks for his energy , and remember energy is forever.
