Blessing Lung’aho Acting Journey

Blessing is now acting as ‘Madiba’ on the newly premiered Zora drama series on Citizen television. If you think that this is the first time that Blessing Lung’aho is gracing your screens, then you thought wrong. He first started acting after he randomly met a guy called Guta on the streets. Guta then walked up to him and told him that he was casting for a commercial and he would be the perfect role for the cast.

Since there are so many conmen around, he took his business account and brushed it off as he headed away. After sharing the encounter with one of his friends, he told him that he knew the guy and that he should call him. After going in for an audition, that is how he landed the role. They discussed payments and that is how his life changed for the better.

His biggest breakthrough came in to be one of the saddest days of his life. He had five roles to ace; three commercials and two TV Shows. He called his dad to tell him about the auditions but the dad was driving so he promised to call him back. It was on a Thursday. Two days later, he had neither heard from his father nor from the casting guys. On Sunday, his aunt called him with sad news; his father had passed on.

While still trying to process the unbelievable news, one hour later, the casting director called him, telling him that he had passed all the roles. He got all the 5 jobs on the worst possible day for him. To him, that was God’s miracle and it was like his dad went to God and told him to take care of his son.

After the death of his father, he decided to quit his accounting job and decided to pursue acting as a career. With that, he has been able to act in not only local but also in international drama shows.
