Kamau Mbaya, popularly known as actor Baha, is without a doubt one of the actors that made childhood interesting in the popular Machachari program. The actor has however undergone several challenges growing up. One of them is losing his mother.
Baha lost his mother Wanade, real name Beth Nyambura Mbaya, to cancer back in 2013 when he was still young. In an interview, the actor opens up on the challenge he’s facing of not getting any other acting gig(s) after growing up. He says that most of the upcoming films typecast actors. This leaves out most of the other actors with the assumption that they are only good in one role. ”
Angalia hadi majuu, kuna kid stars kama Jace Norman wa Henry Danger. Sai ako frustrated because studios zimem typecast, so ni hard kuget. Hio ndio issue sana.” He also adds that most Kenyan actors are facing similar challenge. He also gave an example of the late Papa Shirandula. He says that the industry is now looking for newer faces.
Baha admits he never had it smooth growing up and he had to find ways of surviving with his only sibling Mungai Mbaya, who is two years older than him. The actor also says he used to pay high school fees for his brother and himself. With his talent, he should get an acting gig soon. We need such faces back on our screens. Don’t give up just yet brother, I know you’ll get a role soon!
