Mugambi Nthiga



Acteur kényan.


Kenyan actor.

Mugambi Nthiga is an actor and writer, known for Nairobi Half Life (2012), Lost in Africa (2010) and Buni TV Comedy Series (2013).

Mugambi’s first audience was his mother and younger sister. He played the Little Drummer Boy in a school Nativity, and he was five. He killed it.
« I believe it was the commitment to being authentic that did it, » he said after the show. « From the moment I got signed to the role I asked myself,’Am I willing to not just play the drum, but be the drum?' »
Thus began a career that has seen him on stages in Kenya and Philadelphia, and on screens across Africa, North America and (soon), the world.
