Kenyan content creator Terrence Creative has joined the online community in mourning the death of TikTok sensation Brian Chira.

In his Instagram post, Terrence opened up about his connection to the loss, revealing that he, too, experienced the hardship of being an orphan raised by his grandmother.

Terrence broke into tears as he sang along to an emotional Kikuyu song as he paid his respects to the late Brian Chira.

"Go well Chira🙏🙏🙏am an orphan that got raised by a grandma, this one hit me hard 🙏 #RipChira you were loved," he wrote

 TikToker Rose Atieno alias Nyako was not left behind in paying her last respects to the late content creator.

Nyako held a live session to pay tribute to Chira.

Donned in a black suit, she lit a candle and released balloons in honour of Chira.

The atmosphere was solemn as Amos and Josh's hit song "Baadaye" played softly in the background.

Nyako, who once shared a close bond with Chira, expressed her emotions during the live session.

"I'm paying my last respect to Brian Chira, that's why I am in a suit. Chira wanted a suit, that's why I put it on."

As friends and followers joined the live session to mourn together, Nyako played Otile Brown's song 'One Call', which was reportedly Chira's favourite song.

Chira's send of

Despite the early morning rain, fans gathered at Kenyatta University Funeral Home on Tuesday, March 26, 2024, to pay their respects to the late TikToker Brian Chira.

As early as 7 am, people began arriving at the mortuary, eager to catch a glimpse of Chira's body before its preparation for viewing had even been completed.

Following the viewing at the KU mortuary, Brian Chira's body will be transported to Githunguri for a funeral service and burial, marking the final farewell to a beloved figure in the TikTok community.

"The burial date will be March 26, and the funeral [will be held] in Githunguri where his grandmother has been staying," Baba Talisha revealed in a past TikTok post.

He also shared that the grandmother requested for Chira to be buried in graduation attire.

"Shosho alisema Chira atazikwa na gown, graduation gown. Chira was very bright in school," he disclosed.

Police confirmed the death of the TikToker, stating that he succumbed to severe head injuries sustained in the hit-and-run incident.

Before the accident, reports suggest that the deceased had visited a bar in the Gacharae area where he was later ejected following a disturbance.

On his way home by motorcycle, he was struck by a speeding lorry while crossing the road near his destination. The lorry fled the scene after the collision.

Law enforcement arrived promptly and moved his body to the City Mortuary where grieving fans and family members gathered for a final viewing.
