Brian Chira's grandmother pays her last tribute to the fallen TikToker. "Brian Chira was my first grandson, born by my first daughter. He was my best friend since childhood. He has been providing for us and has been obedient as always. He took care of his cousins. He could wash and clean the house. his greater goal was to see us settle in a big modern house and have our compound. he made so many sacrifices for me. He quit his studies to work and make ends meet for us. Brian always made random visits at home. I wish he knew how he was in the society, but now I know. Brian is a star. On his last visit which was March 9, we talked about our family. He has left a big gap in our lives. He always asked me to love him the way he was. "
