“There was no one hiring me, they were saying am too expensive. I was jobless for two years.” – Kate Actress
Kate Actress, born Catherine Kamau has been one admirable personality in the showbiz industry.
Her rise to fame was inspired by her character in ‘Mother-in-law’ a local drama series where she was a cast named Selina.
In an interview with Terryanne Chebet, Kate revealed that she joined the mother-in-law team as a dancer, only to be given a role as an actress.
Years after building a career out of the show, Kate left the mother-in-law’s show to pursue her personal projects.
“After being on mother-in-law for 7-8 years, I could feel its time to grow. I needed change, so I had to leave,” Cate shared.
“I thought I am poping,I am a star and everyone would want me on their shows. That did not happen, there was no one hiring me, they were saying am too expensive. I was jobless for two years. But thankfully i had bagged an ambassadorship for a brand(Hapic). It sustained me for two years,” she said.
After being jobless for two years, Kate decided to create her own content, and it turned out to be successful.
“I decided that now that people don’t want to hire me, I will create my own show. And it was very successful. It was sweat, blood, and tears. We were hawking that show from media house to another, no one saw the dream.”
