“We were paid Kes 20,000 per episode and wrote four episodes a month, which came to Sh80,000. I wrote on both Tahidi High and Mother-In-Law. In total, between 2010 and 2012, I earned approximately Sh200,000 a month because I was also acting and doing camera work,” Abel told SDE.

The former Tahadi High actor says he was forced to take a sabbatical after he collapsed in the bathroom. Apparently his work got the better of him and he had no option but to take a break.

“After four years of constant writing and acting, I collapsed in the bathroom one evening from sheer exhaustion and I knew it was time to take a break. I’d overexerted myself. I felt I had nothing left to give so I quit my job, which some thought was very stupid and some thought was very brave.”

“I landed on my feet as I got a role as brand ambassador for a politician who was running for president. It paid well, but after a year being out of the creative scene, I was itching to get back.”
