Oh No! Shiro Is Leaving Auntie Boss
3 months ago, 18 Sep 11:42
This comes just two weeks after winning an Africa Magic Viewers Choice award for Best Actress in a Comedy Show for her role in Auntie Boss. Wanjeri beat popular names all across Africa to win one of the most coveted prizes in acting.
It is indeed surprising that Wanjeri is quitting the show that made her win the award in the first place. The actor made an announcement via social media saying that her production company does not want her to appear or engage as the character ‘Shiro’ anymore.
Here’s what she wrote:
Long post alert! First of All, God Ni Msoo! It has been a beautiful period for me and I thank the Almighty for his grace and amazing love! An AMVCA win, another nomination that is NEA Awards, and very many other things I’ll keep sharing with time, have been blessing me recently that I have so much joy I can only say thank you! Also a big thank you to all those who came to watch me on stage recently, coz as my first love, the stage has always had a special place in my heart.
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. 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.
Then she concluded:
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 Shiro.
Damn!! This is disappointing.
Let’s hope she jumps on another great show soon.
