Neomi Nganga, who doubles up as a plus-size model, designer and actress worked with the late Charles Bukeko in the popular Kenyan series Papa Shirandula.
That allowed her the opportunity to interact and share a lot of moments with the late legendary actor, but sadly today she mourns the loss of her hero.
Taking to social media, Neomi opened up about the small jokes they shared recalling his last request to her before his sudden demise.
"We used to joke a lot when we shared a set @papashirandura. And he really liked it when I joked around and called him zaddy !!He kept joking all the time...that I should start a movement For African heavy men... 🙈....not only women...We chatted a few months ago ........

The series Papa Shirandula opened so many doors for so many famous names we have in the entertainment industry, so his death is a big loss to Kenyans.
Charles Bukeko leaves behind a wife and three children.
