Andrew Mugure, commonly known as Mustapha from Citizen TV Show Mother-in-Law, has opened up on struggles he faced after losing two jobs.
Speaking during an interview, the renowned actor who was also a radio presenter at Hot 96FM revealed that he had to survive on very little and handouts from family and a few friends during the difficult period.
Mustafa noted that in 2020, he was fired from his radio job, and at the same time, he got fewer episodes in the Mother-in-law show as they were looking to cut on the budgets before he was eventually terminated from the show.
He also explained that his family and a few friends came through for him and provided basic things they needed.
He further lauded his landlady, noting that she completely understood his predicament and allowed him to pay rent in installments.
“I am currently not earning anything as I still do not have a job. My family has been very gracious to us as they bring me food and help in paying rent, and they also encourage me not to give up,” he said.
However, the talented actor said that there were friends who were not picking his calls or returning his calls when he needed their help.
