Famous actress Angel Waruinge who is known for playing the role of Miss Morgan has spoken out about the success of the show and how it led to the harsh decline in the careers of the major actors.
Speaking to Massawe Japanni, Angel was asked, what is it about Tahidi High actors that is leading them to alcoholism?
“I DON’T KNOW WHY THEY ARE TARGETING TAHIDI HIGH ACTORS. AND PLEASE TUWACHANE. TAHIDI HIGH IS EASILY TARGETED BECAUSE THREE GENERATIONS RELATE TO IT. IT WAS THE MOST VISIBLE SHOW TO MANY. IT WAS THE TOP SHOW. ON MAINSTREAM, IT WAS THE ONLY SHOW THAT WAS HOT.”
Asked how most of the actors ended up addicted to alcohol. Angel explained,
“ALCOHOL CAME INTO PLAY BECAUSE YOU ARE YOUNG, YOU ARE GETTING ALL THIS ATTENTION, A LOT OF HIGH-END PEOPLE ARE GIVING YOU ATTENTION. AND YOU ARE AT THE HILT OF YOUR CAREER, YOU ARE FAMOUS AND YOU HAVE THE MONEY.”
Angel pointed out that her role as Miss Morgan was bigger than life.
“MISS MORGAN DOESN’T EXIST – AT THE MOMENT – BUT I RESPECT HER BECAUSE PEOPLE WANT TO ASSOCIATE WITH HER. I HAVE BEEN A BRAND AMBASSADOR FOR MANY COMPANIES BECAUSE OF THE CHARACTER.”
“BEING AN ACTOR MANY CLIENTS WILL TAKE YOU UP, YOU DO WORK FOR THEM THEN THEY DON’T PAY, THE PEOPLE WHO OWE ME MONEY ARE MANY, THE TOTAL AMOUNT IS IN 7 FIGURES.
She confirmed that there are contacts signed but still she was not paid for her services.
“THE CONTRACTS ARE THERE BUT WHERE IS THE TIME AND RESOURCES TO FOLLOW UP ON PAYMENTS IN COURT? THIS IS KENYA.”
