Kenya’s most renowned actor may be Lupita Nyong’o, but I dare say Edi Gathegi is the most entertaining.
Whether he is Mr. Solomon on The Blacklist, or Jacobee on Into the Badlands, or even Ronald Dacey on Startup, Gathegi brings his characters to life and is constantly the most thrilling actor in the show.
Of late, Kenyans have been posting appreciation messages on social media, and the actor has noticed.
”#Kenyan fans discovering me & going hard ️. I appreciate you all. Thanks for the support.” he posted on Twitter.
