Brian Chira’s family to allegedly hold cleansing ceremony days after funeral

Published on

Brian Chira’s Villagers have condemned TikTokers who failed to conduct themselves appropriately at Brian Chira’s final journey ceremony.

According to the information shared by the villagers, the TikTokers, who cannot be identified by name, were making a mess everywhere by urinating at the wrong places, smoking, and drinking heavy liquor.

On Tuesday, March 26, TikToker Brian Chira was laid to rest on his grandmother’s ancestral land in Gitei village, Gathanje, Kiambu County. And the burial ceremony drew a crowd of prominent figures from the content-creating community, known as the “Chira Clan,” and left the villagers astonished with the amount of fame and love Chira had gathered during his prime.

Brian, who was twenty-three, would normally have been buried among his close friends and family, as well as a few neighbors. However, that was untrue. Hundreds of TikTokers gathered around the cemetery, some of them inebriated and irresponsible, and chaos broke out. There was so little room that several people even knelt down.

Families and villagers turned a blind eye, letting them bury their companion without realizing what was going on. Rather than merely covering the grave with earth, as is customary, they dispersed the earth, started planting flowers, and then went around Chira’s final resting place to dance and take random photos.

One villager was particularly saddened by the TikTokers’ use of strong words like “Hatuna maisha” (We have no lives).


We only want the best for our children because we never want to see what we saw today. It was a bad scene. The family wasn’t even allowed to bury their loved one with dignity. We want our children to come home with the respect they left with,” she said.

“We are calling on our village to hold a cleansing ceremony to remove any negative spirits left behind
,” the villagers shared.

Why are they holding a cleansing ceremony:

We didn’t like the way they dressed, smoked, and drank alcohol in front of us. They didn’t even respect the clergy. They were disrespecting our Kikuyu traditions, and we’ve never seen that before. They urinated everywhere. That’s not the way we were brought up. We’re worried about their future and how they’re going to raise their own children. It was a struggle even for the church to get access to the grave site. They don’t seem to know what they’re doing.

Taking selfies and coming here drunk wasn’t appropriate.”


In Karuri, Kiambu County, Brian Chira tragically lost his life in a hit-and-run accident. His companion clarified that Chira had attended a nearby club and overindulged in alcohol. He requested someone else for a ride as he couldn’t afford to pay for a transport home and his phone was with a different acquaintance.

Another villager added weight to matter:

Brian was a young man who deserved a respectful funeral. It’s heartbreaking to see TikTokers celebrating and dancing. We wonder if they really respected him. Chira left nothing behind, not even a child. We didn’t let our own children come here. Because we were afraid they will pick up this behavior.

Chira was laid to rest next to his great-grandfather, and the villagers watched as the content creators stepped on their graves.

After the burial, TikTokers performed rituals at Chira’s grave site, including watering the flowers with alcohol.


In Kikuyu culture, we don’t step on graves, dance around them, or drink alcohol there.

They should go back to church because, despite his fame, Brian is nothing after today; he’s left nothing to show that he ever existed,” said one of the angry villagers.
