By OLIVIA MUNGWANA

DJ Stylez has spoken for the first time since the fanily lost their sister to a bathroom accident.

DJ Stylez said he s still going through a “naturally tough” time a year after losing his and Madtraxx’ sister, Dr Njeri Muigai.

Dr Muigai died after an accident in her home. She was eight months pregnant at the time.

Her mother found her lying on the floor and rushed her to hospital in Nairobi, where she was pronounced dead on arrival. Unfortunately, the baby did not make it either.

He said they are trying to keep her work alive by helping people with mental issues, as she was a mental health specialist.

It’s tough, it’s naturally tough, she was my best friend

She was a doctor who was very big on mental health, psychology and psychiatry, and she had started initiatives to do with mental health. So what we are trying to do, and we have big shoes to fill, is see how to continue with that work.

He said mental health is a serious problem in Kenya, and Dr Muigai had started different initiatives to tackle it.

Stylez and family are trying to see how they can “plug into those initiatives” and continue her work.

I mean, it’s tough. There are some things you really don’t ever get over, but you learn to take a step at a time and we are thankful for that.

Dr Muigai worked with the Health ministry in Kiambu County

Shiro of Auntie Boss calls it a day at the show

Published

by OLIVIA MUNGWANA

Award-winning actress Nyce Wanjeri popularly known as Shiro of Auntie Boss has called it a day at the show.

This comes barely a week after she won the Best Actress in a comedy and TV series at this year’s Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA).

She wrote:

Now, for 15 seasons, that is almost 200 episodes on NTV, auntie boss has been my home. I have been humbled to work with an amazing production house that is moonbeam and their very abled selection of cast and crew. I have been blessed and lucky so far, but that beautiful journey that started 3 or so years ago is soon coming to an end.

She went on:

This coming Tuesday, the 18th of September, will have me on my last fresh episode of Auntie Boss on NTV, lakini repeats zitakuwa Maisha Magic bado.

I won’t pretend to not be a little bit sad because Shiro is a character I had personally fallen in love with. 😢 She was a dear to many Kenyans and the amazing time I’ve spent on set watching the amazing actors and actresses grow are moments I am going to treasure forever!

But whatever has a beginning must have an end, and so this chapter of Shiro must come to an end to make way for something else, somewhere else. I promised that I’ll keep entertaining till I have no strength left in me so I will continue in one way or another.

We can only thank God that this is happening while we are at the top, with wins and nominations and continental recognition for myself and also the show Auntie Boss na sio kuchoka mmechoka na sisi.

Also, it will not only be my last episode on the show, but the last time you the fans will interact with me as Shiro.

Since I am no longer under the show and the production company that owns the show and the character shiro, I am required to no longer appear or engage as Sshiro. I know I have no control over the millions of fans of the show referring to me as Shiro Warugongo on social media or on the streets, sitalenga, nitaitika na selfie tutapiga. All I am trying to say is I no longer represent the company or the show or the character Shiro, so anything I do or say is for Nyce Wanjeri
