Papa Shirandula actor Ken Gichoya popularly known as Njoro has revealed that the popular Tv show was cancelled a few months back.
Njoro says that a few months back the team that included actors and producers was asked to stop recording the show when covid hit and they all chose to go their separate ways.
Many assumed that they will be making a comeback when the pandemic is dealt with but unfortunately they were told only re-runs will be going on air.
While remembering the late Papa, Njoro said he was at first heartbroken when the plug was pulled on the show he worked on for years.
He had to swallow the bitter pill of finally bidding farewell to his castmates who had turned into family over the years.
“The show was cancelled four months ago after Kenya started recording coronavirus cases. The management just told us the show was over and we were not going to record any more episodes. They said they planned to air reruns,” he said
Njoro further added that it will take him time to come to terms with fallen actor Charles Bukeko’s death.
“It will take time for me to accept I will never see him again but one day I will rise above the pain. I do not know when but I know it will take some time,” he added.
