After 8 years of playing the role of Celina on Citizen TV’s Mother-in-law show, Catherine Kamau-Karanja made her final bow, albeit begrudgingly.

In a past interview with K24, Mrs Karanja disclosed that things were getting too uncomfortable in the Mother-in-law set and she had to quit in a huff.

“Familiarity brings contempt and sometimes people don’t understand your value until you leave. The situation was getting so uncomfortable, I was breaking away, I wanted to do other things. I just resigned without a plan, there was something that happened,” she said.

In retrospect, Celina revealed that she felt that she should have left more graciously.

“Looking back, it was God’s time, it was time for me to leave but I wish if left in a nice (way) but the cast, we still family. I didn’t want to leave but I had to leave. One of those situations,” she explained.

After leaving the show she quickly learned that the streets were cold and securing a job with her profile was a tall order. She got broke and things got scary.

However, as they say, a tight place is a good space for metamorphosis, Kate grew from an actress to a content creator. Her first foray in production proved to be a success and her first show ‘Sue na Jonnie’ earned her critical acclaim and bagged awards.

“It reached a point where I had done this show for over 8 years and I had the urge to grow. Once I left the show, no one was hiring me, because one, my value was high and there was no other way. I had to create something for myself. It was scary, I was broke I waited for almost two years but I did it,” she revealed on her YouTube channel explaining how she morphed into a content creator.
