• Marto said perseverance and patience are what led him to greatness in the industry
Media personality and actor Martin Githinji, alias Daddie Marto, earned less than he spent in his early days of acting.
"Fare was Sh10k in total and I was paid Sh6k. So what then can I say my salary was?" he told Word Is of his first gig.
"My first salary was a minus but the perseverance and the patience to do that job is what has led me to do the things that I've done and where I am right now. It took time but it repaid itself."
Daddie Marto is part of the series 'County 49', which is a political thriller.
He plays a security detail to the governor of Bwatele county (played by Wakio Mzenge).
"This is me back to doing what I normally do. I have only been in one comic character."
