Jalang’o To Cover School Fees For Papa Shirandula’s Daughter


The trio announced during an event held on Sunday, July 18 where the deceased’s family, friends and former colleagues gathered to commemorate the first anniversary of his death.

Comedian and Kiss FM presenter Felix Odiwuor, alias Jalang’o, will join other media personalities such as Kenneth Gichoya, aka Njoro, and Kazungu Matano, alias Captain Otoyo to educate the daughter of the late Charles Bukeko, known widely as Papa Shirandula.

The trio announced during an event held on Sunday, July 18 where the deceased’s family, friends and former colleagues gathered to commemorate the first anniversary of his death. 

“From today onwards, Sherry should never worry about her school fees; we will handle it, myself, Otoyo, and Njoro. I will give you a cheque to cater for her entire primary school at Moi Educational Centre and even when she joins high school. 

“Never worry about her education because if Papa was alive, he would have catered for that in a good school,” Jalang’o declared.

The announcement left Bukeko’s widow Beatrice Andega, emotional. She thanked Jalang’o for the act of gratitude he showed, just as she was thinking about how she would take her daughter through to university. 

“There are problems you wonder how you will solve, but I thank God because he is a God of solutions; what Jalang’o and his friends have done have melted my heart. 

“I was seated here thinking of school while God was working for me. He has made a solution,” Andega said. 

Jalang’o went ahead and stated that he wanted to make the late Bukeko proud for the good work he did for him and his colleagues. He attributed that without Bukeko’s mentorship, he wouldn’t be the brand he is at the moment. 

“Mum, I promise you from today to the university, provided we are all alive, we will take responsibility for her fees,” he added. 

Bukeko starred in the television series Papa Shirandula on Citizen TV before he passed away on Saturday July 18, 2020 to COVID-19. 

Shirandula’s brother-in-law Ronald Wanyama confirmed that Shirandula did test positive for for the virus before his death. He added that Bukeko experienced difficulty in breathing before he was rushed to the Karen Hospital. 

Bukeko was a multiple award-winning actor who scooped the Kalasha Award for ‘Best Actor in a TV Series’ in 2010. He also appeared in numerous big-time commercials across the world including Coca Cola and GOTV. 

Speaking to the Daily Nation on February 18, 2018, Bukeko received his big break when he was cast as Herold for the play, Nativity, at Braeburn Theatre. 

“I am one person who came into the industry on the right foot and ended up working with the right people which made things easier for me,” Bukeko once stated. 

“Nothing can go wrong if you trust in God and follow your dream and heart yearnings,” he added. 

He then approached Royal Media Services Managing Director Wachira Waruru with the idea of a Papa Shirandula TV show.
