Popular Kenyan actress Catherine Kamau did not complete her studies after landing a major role on the popular show Mother in law as Selina.Sharing  through her YouTube channel, Mrs Karanja (Kate actress) revealed; that her first paycheck not only blew her off her feet but also confused her.


“I quit college after i got a role in acting mother-in-law. I got my first pay check and i could afford to buy my son stuff comfortably, so i decided not to continue with school. I got swallowed into the party life and ditched college. My mum could not allow it so she told me to move out.”


“I never thought i would make a million before 25 but when i landed my first deal it was worth more than that. I did not know what to do with the cash, i would go and just put my atm card just to make sure the money was really there.”


According to Kate, back then no one would tell her anything concerning her money; and although her mum tried advising her but her advice fell on deaf ears.


“My mum was trying to advise me, i would listen but i still wanted to spoil my child eventually the cash ran out and that’s when i started  becoming serious.luckily for me they had only paid me 50%”


Having received a million or more without the need of a college degree proved to her that she could do without the education.
