Talented young actor Baha whose real name is Tyler Mbaya lost his mother, Beth Nyambura Mbaya, in 2011.
She was known widely by her screen name Wanade, for her role in Mother-in-law. Wanade died after a long struggle with cancer.
Tyler and his brother Mungai Mbaya (commonly known for his stint on Junction Juniors) went through a rough patch since they lost their father two years after their mother passed away.
Despite their mother’s death, Baha did not give up on life and went on to get more acting gigs where he has now managed to create a niche for himself in the local acting industry. He is without a doubt the best teen actor in the country.
“Been 5 years already since we lost this gem of a woman @tyler_mbaya. It didn’t really hit me how long its been until I realised this is one of the only two decent pictures I have of her. So I apologise if y’all have seen this picture too much. And for bringing your beautiful Sunday to a such a low note.
I’m older now and I understand that a lot of stuff that happens in our life has a reason. We may never know why, so the best we can do is trust that it was and still is for the best.
How I wish you could see us now😢. Well you probably are. And I know there’s a smile on your face.
We love you so much mom! ❤❤ Happy mother’s day…#SinemaniKazi,” wrote Baha’s brother Mungai.
Baha reposted his brother’s heart melting message by saying,
“WORD BRO♨️ I MISS HER MORE!❤.”
