Life hasn’t always been a bed of roses for former machachari show star Tyler Kamau Mbaya popularly know as Baha ever since the demise of his mother Beth Mbaya who acted in Mother-in-law as Wanade.

Wanade passed away after a brave battle with cancer and sadly two years down the line Baha’s dad lost his life too, leaving Baha and his brother under the care of their ageing grandmother.

Baha Machachari

Speaking exclusively during an interview with a local magazine, Baha opened up on how life has been ever since by saying;

When mum passed on, I was a Form One student at Nairobi School. I immediately transferred to Chania Boys High School where my brother was for moral support so that we could grieve and overcome our mum’s death together. However, in my fourth year, I joined Ufanisi Senior School where I sat for my KSCE.”

“I finished high school aged 16 last year. This is because I demanded to be taken to school when my brother, who is two years older than me, started schooling. I did not want to be let alone. I was able to act and at the same time continue with my education because I was always allowed to have one weekend off to attend the shoots.”
