One of the most memorable actors in the now-defunct Citizen TV series Machachari is MaDVD, real name Brian Kimaru.
Kimaru played an ordinary guy selling compact disks and fell in love with Sofia, a househelp.
Sofia worked as a house help for mama Almasi, and her job entailed taking care of the young boy and his sister Joy.
Kimaru convincingly played his role, earning him a legion of fans across the country.

However, before the show was scrapped off, Kimaru had taken a break. The actor silently exited the spotlight and is currently based abroad.
We take a look at some photos of the UK –based actor who has transformed since his Machachari days.
Kimaru settled down and has a cute son named Lemayan, whose photos he often shares on social media.
The actor seems to be a responsible father from the numerous photos as he is involved in his son’s life.
On May 10, for instance, Kimaru took the young lad to a barbershop for a haircut before joining school for the second term.
2. Kenyan trends
Despite being based abroad, Kimaru keeps tabs on local trends and music. Like many other Kenyans, he particularly likes Ndovu Kuu by Krispajh featuring Khaligraph Jones and Boutross Munene.
3. Political ambition?
Kimaru has on numerous occasions posted photos while referring to himself as an MP, perhaps indicating that he would one day vie for the seat in Kenya.
In April, he captioned one of his photos:
“Looking like an MP is not easy. You better get used to your legislator early.”
4. Taxi driver
In May, Kimaru was elated after meeting a Kenyan taxi driver in the UK. The actor shared a video listening to mugithi music in the cab, saying:
“Respect Kikuyus. These guys are everywhere. Despite being in the UK, this driver is playing mugithi in his cab.”
Kimaru is married and often shares photos with his lovely wife on social media.
Kimaru seems to be keeping in touch with his Kenyan roots as he often speaks Sheng in his social media videos.
The last time he was in the country was in 2020.
Kimaru is learned as he graduated from a foreign university in 2017.
