Kamau is a skimmer and full of gimmicks that have turned his life into a circus show, his lack of touch with reality makes him prone to the most absurd of manners one could ever think of, however his simplistic mentality sometimes does come in handy, masquerading as practicability.
Produced by the now renowned Kangethe Mungai and directed by Njomo Nyathira, the production house, Kikwetu , is proving to be a force to be reckoned with in Kenya’s entertainment.
The cast include: Lawrence Maina who plays Kama, Margaret Mathu who plays Muthoni, Njomo Nyathira(Kama), Peris Wambui (Aunt), George Muiruiri (Mwas) among others.
Ciru, Kamau’s girlfriend is one sophisticated but confused lady, chasing after the wind in pursuit of the good life; her lack of direction nevertheless always lands her in the worst of places something that she is not proud of as is her baby sitting activity with Kamau she calls a relationship.
