The nation was left reeling after news of Charlie’s death broke on Sunday 4 February, with the entertainment industry and fans alike sharing heartfelt tributes, photos and videos in memory of the iconic creative.
Throughout this difficult time, Ciru had remained silent as she mourned the loss of her lover.

“You were literally the man that everyone looked up to. You were so welcoming, you spoke positivity to me and every Gen Z actor out there. This is a sad moment not just for me, but for everyone in the film industry. You were a role model! You were loved by so many! Charlie, you will be sorely missed,” Michelle wrote.
Charles Ouda’s death was first announced by Ouda’s elder sister Elizabeth on his official Facebook Page.
