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 All I am trying to say is I no longer represent the company or the show or the character Shiro, so anything I do or say is for Nyce Wanjeri

“Naomi always told me I had something special as an actor as she had watched me since childhood…I became ‘Omosh,’ a smart-aleck, know-it-all watchman and with my years working in the garbage dumps in the slums of Nairobi, I could not have been better suited for this part.” 

Salary

While many actors in Kenyan have always started with a low amount, Omosh was lucky to be paid a considerable amount of money after enlisting.

“I was only getting paid 3,000 per episode, but I was giving the part the very best I could.” he said.
