TikToker Nyako Pilot shares heart-breaking loss of parents, siblings to HIV/Aids


Nyako Pilot, a prominent content creator, influencer, and TikTok sensation known for her charitable initiatives, has opened up about the tragic loss of her parents and siblings to HIV/Aids.

Nyako recounted the heartbreak of losing her mother, father, and two sisters to the devastating condition.

Nyako, celebrated for her selfless actions on TikTok, shared the painful details of her family’s struggle with HIV/AIDS.

Her mother, she revealed, passed away due to the illness, leaving her with an overwhelming sense of longing and missed opportunities.

“I am chilling with my mum; I like sitting here because it is my mum I love the most. I feel her presence deeply, but she left so early; she should have stayed a bit longer. I never got to share any moments with my mum. I was raised in a boarding school my entire life, and when I finished, she was gone. So, I don’t have any special memories of my mother. That’s how it is,” Nyako expressed.

In addition to her mother’s passing, Nyako Pilot also shared the heartbreaking news that both her father and one-year-old sister also succumbed to HIV/Aids.

During the period when her family faced this devastating challenge, she mentioned that there were limited treatment options, and medication was not readily available.

“Both my parents died of HIV/Aids, and both my two sisters died of HIV/Aids. In those days, there was no medication. One of my sisters died when she was only one; the virus overwhelmed her, leading to a painful and untimely death,” Nyako recalled with deep emotion.

Continuing her narrative, she revealed that her other sister passed away at the age of twelve.

“By that time, there were medications available, but the treatment ended up overpowering her, causing kidney failure, and ultimately, she lost her battle with the illness.”
