‘Today, I pay tribute to my on-screen partner,’ read Wilbroda’s emotional message to Papa Shirandula

Its a week since popular comedian Papa Shirandula passed away.

Wilbroda, who acted as the wife of Papa Shirandula in the show, said his death has hit her hard and it’s too difficult to comprehend.

According to the family, Papa died of coronavirus related complications.

While admitting that she is yet to come to terms with the loss of her co-star, Wilbroda recounted moments she had shared with the late Bukeko over the last month of his life.

She says that they had a lot of things planned for the entertainment industry.

She shared Papa’s photo with a long caption dedicated to him.

“Today I pay tribute to my late friend, my on-screen partner, my mentor, my neighbour, my son’s uncle.
A week ago on a day like this, at a time like this, I received a call that will stay on my mind for a long time to come.
I stood at the supermarket dumbstruck, unable to move. My heart sank.
I went to my car and cried out loud ‘Papa what have you done! What have you done!’
We had such big plans for the future of entertainment. We had even started shooting our production just 2 weeks before. And what an amazing time we had on set!”

She added that the last three months, Papa was so happy, excited and optimistic.
“These past 3 months we grew so close. We sat together, created together, ate together, laughed together. Nothing could have possibly prepared me for your death. We were sure we had lots of days, years together.
I have never felt so deceived, so cheated..You bailed out just like that…I saw you on Wednesday and we spoke. My son saw you on Friday evening and you spoke. And on Saturday morning you were gone. I’ve been hit before but this hit me hard.
Thank you Paps for seeing in me that which I hadn’t seen in myself and for giving me a chance…Safiri salama.

We all die. The goal is not to live forever. The goal is to create something that will.”

Today I pay tribute to my late friend, my on-screen partner, my mentor, my neighbour, my son's uncle. A week ago on a day like this, at a time like this, I received a call that will stay on my mind for a long time to come. I stood at the supermarket dumbstruck, unable to move. My heart sank. I went to my car and cried out loud 'Papa what have you done! What have you done!' We had such big plans for the future of entertainment. We had even started shooting our production just 2 weeks before. And what an amazing time we had on set! You were so happy, excited, optimistic… These past 3 months we grew so close. We sat together, created together, ate together, laughed together. Nothing could have possibly prepared me for your death. We were sure we had lots of days, years together. I have never felt so deceived, so cheated..You bailed out just like that…I saw you on Wednesday and we spoke. My son saw you on Friday evening and you spoke. And on Saturday morning you were gone. I've been hit before but this hit me hard. Thank you Paps for seeing in me that which I hadn't seen in myself and for giving me a chance…Safiri salama. We all die. The goal is not to live forever.

‘If God gives me another child I am OK with it, but I am contented with Xolani,’ – Wilbroda

Kenyan actress Jackie Nyaminde alias Wilbroda has said that she is contented only having one child despite the many questions.

Speaking about the delicate issue during a segment dubbed ‘The Other Side of Me.’ Wilbroda said,

The best thing about being  a mother is that even when you have had a long day there is someone excited to see you.

I have been asked by people on when I am getting another kid but I am content having my son.

He is 9 and he knows he is the child of the family.

The reasons people give as to why they want you to get another is not even valid.

Wilbroda argued that there are options such as adopting after all there are kids without families out there.

There are families who have 8-10 kids and they have died. If God gives me another one I wouldn’t mind.

Plus there are many kids out there who are looking for love so why not go out there and adopt a child?

How many children would you want to have? And is one child enough? Give your feedback in the comment section.

‘Mleteni kwangu’ Wilbroda to Linturi after poor bedroom skills allegations

Actress Jacky Nyaminde a.k.a Wilbroda has come out to defend Senator Linturi.She argued that its bad to bad mouth your partner after a breakup.

Speaking live on Milele FM, she said:

Niko upande wa Senator. Why didn’t you tell us when you met that he couldn’t rise to the occasion? Why wait when you’re not in good terms and start going round talking about how he can’t perform?

Wewe ulishindwa kuamsha? Mimi nikapewa Linturi sahii, bendera inaweza kufuata upepo.


Linturi came under criticism after his wife in an affidavit told the court that one of the issues they had in their marriage is that Linturi could not perform in bed.

‘Linturi cannot perform in bed’ His Wife Kitany spills the beans

The issue seemed to have rubbed Nairobi governor wrong prompting him to come to Linturis defense.

This is nonsense of the highest order and totally unacceptable. The star is becoming a gutter press day by day. We shall not allow them to publish bedroom stories of other men with their wives.

Which journalist was present in their bedroom during that material night. Shenzi nyinyi. Linturi take them to court this is good money.


And since your matrimonial residence is in Nairobi I shall be an amicus curiae in this case on probono.

Musidharau wanaume to that extent na hata tukizeeka. God gave us tongues and fingers.

In a better place at the moment

Wilbroda, whose life mantra is ‘always eat it with a big spoon and never settle for average’, recently talked about her acting career in an interview with local blogger Isaya Evans. When asked how she made it to the celebrated local programme Papa Shirandula, she said:

“Someone brought me the script and asked to go through the character Wilbroda. I WEnt trough it and I  was like ‘haiya, that’s my grandma because the Wilbroda character depicts her character’,” she said.

The multitalented actress-cum-radio presenter started acting 15 years ago and she attributes her success to SAFE Ghetto and she says her highest point in acting industry was:

“Being part of SAFE Ghetto a non-governmental theatre organization. We would go around in the slums and sensitize people on HIV/Aids and that’s what got me Wilbroda and where I am now.”


Wilbroda, who is a great example of hard work pays, advises upcoming actors to love the job and be patient.

“You got to have a passion for this industry. MONEY TAKES TIMe before it comes through but it eventually does. Also, invest early,” she said.

Just like any other person, Wilbroda has a best friend, who happens to be her fellow actress on Papa Shirandula, Awinja.

“Before shooting, I gossip a lot with Awinja. She’s my darling. She’s not just a colleague, she’s more than that,” she explained

Wilbroda, who was also part of Traveling theatre reminisces the good old days and she says:

“We faced a lot of challenges during early stages of acting. We used to sleep at a lodging and pay sh150 per night then we would sleep the seven of us in a room. We didn’t have money. Those were fun moments.  I look at them now and wouldn’t exchange them for anything,” she narrated.

The veteran actress says nothing comes on a silver platter and advises the youth to toil hard so as to eat just like the Bible says in Genesis 3:17.


‘It’s is not easy being anywhere.You got to put in some effort and have passion. It’s the only way to success. “



Wilbroda, who hosts the Radio Citizen morning show alongside Inspekta Mwala and Francis Luchivia, is looking forward to venturing into food industry business and she wants to be a restaurateur in the next five years.

The thing that made Papa Shirandula’s Wilbroda quit drinking

They say everything that has a beginning, has an ending and I agree with that. Celebrated local actress-cum-radio presenter Jackline Nyaminde, popularly referred to as Wilbroda from the popular family dramedy, is a great example.


The mother of one, who is minting millions from various corporates thanks to her clean image, has confessed that this year has been a great one for her. Wilbroda, who just turned a year older today, has confessed that she has stopped taking alcohol and that she has become closer to God than ever.

The multi-talented actress, who is also celebrating her 10th anniversary as Wilbroda in Papa Shirandula, says that her role opened a lot of chances for her. She is now a brand ambassador for several local brands, among them Dairy products, Jikokoa etc.



This year has been special to me in many ways. I finally got the courage to stop excuses and JUST DO IT.

I finally quit drinking. I never knew I’d be able to until I tried. And I DID IT!
I went to the gym and lost some weight. I was concerned for my health, so I DID IT!
I made meaningful friendships. I got closer with family, closer to God. At one point in life, you realise that there are very few people who truly care.
This year also marks my 10th year anniversary as Wilbroda in Papa Shirandula, a role that opened endless doors.
I’m eternally grateful to friends and family for their love and support, and to Almighty God for strength I didn’t think I had.
Here’s to me. Happy Birthday to me,” she posted on Instagram.

Wilbroda’s followers have congratulated her on the bold move and wished her all the best in life and here is what some had to say;
