Late Tiktoker Brian Chira cousin gets full scholarship to study abroad

Amidst the somber atmosphere enveloping their family, Brian Chira’s cousin has received uplifting news—a sponsorship for his education.

In a heartfelt live session on TikTok, user MC Chris shared the heartwarming update.

With genuine warmth and encouragement, MC Chris announced that Brian’s cousin had secured sponsorship for his education from an individual based in the US.

“Now you have found a sponsor. Someone in the US will support your education,” he said, embracing the young boy affectionately.

Brian’s cousin couldn’t contain his joy at the wonderful news, smiling shyly as he held onto his jacket.

“Work hard until you make it to the US,” MC Chris encouraged the young boy, whose smile only widened upon hearing the news.

Following the tragic passing of Chira in a road accident, his cousin was left in a difficult situation as Chira had been funding his education.

Meanwhile, preparations for TikToker Brian Chira’s funeral, scheduled for Tuesday, March 26, 2024, are underway.

Baba Talisha, an online figure providing updates since Chira’s passing, has been pivotal in disseminating information about the funeral arrangements.

Viewing of Brian Chira’s body will take place as follows:

Brian Chira will be transported from the Kenyatta University (KU) mortuary to Githunguri Kiarie for burial on the specified date.

According to Baba Talisha, there will be no viewing of the body after it leaves the mortuary. Those wishing to pay their respects and view the body must do so at the morgue between 6 am to around 8 am.

Following the traditions of the Kikuyu community, there will be no further opportunity to view the body at home after it leaves the mortuary, according to Baba Talisha.

Baba Talisha stated that Chira’s body would be buried in his grandmother’s hometown.

However, the people at Chira’s grandmother’s current residence declined to allow the body to be taken there and expressed their reluctance to be associated with any funeral arrangements. This may lead to limited participation from other family members in the funeral proceedings.

“The body of Chira will be buried where his grandmother hailed from. The people at her current residence declined to host the funeral, so you may notice a lack of participation from other family members. That’s the information I was given,” Baba Talisha explained.

Before the burial, a candle-lighting session will be held at a location to be announced later, providing an opportunity for friends, family, and well-wishers to come together and honor the memory of Brian Chira.
