Ahead of ‘This Is It’ premiere, here’s ShowMax Q&A with Nick Mutuma


Kenyan star Nick Mutuma shares his #ShowmaxAddiction. Catch Nick in This Is It which launches today – April 13, 2017 – on Showmax in Kenya.

Q:What are you working on at the moment that you’re excited about?

NM: I just wrapped up working on the 5th season of MTV Shuga, which was filmed in South Africa. It was great to start the year off working on such a quality production alongside some of the finest talent in Africa.

I’m even more excited about the fact that this year I have projects lined up across the continent. It’s amazing that the African film industry is finally coming together and working towards a common goal: bringing quality to the African narrative.

Q: What made you decide to get into television in the first place?

NM: I knew I always wanted to be on TV – my life changed for the better when my parents bought a camcorder. I’d record anything everything. I’ve always loved being in front and behind the camera.

Q: What’s your #ShowmaxAddiction?

Q: What are you watching on Showmax?

NM: This is It! I also enjoy Luther and Game of Thrones.

Q: What classic series do you rewatch over and over, and why?

NM: It would have to be The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It’s such a timeless show, and Will Smith was the guy I wanted to be, he still is.

Q: Who is your favourite Kenya actor and why?

NM: My favourite Kenyan actor is Raymond Ofula, he’s a legend in the game.

Q: What’s one classic film every one should watch?

NM: Pulp Fiction! Quentin Tarantino was ahead of his time if you ask me, also it’s rare to find so many superstars in one film.

Q: What do you like about internet TV?

NM: I love having options and being able to decide what I wanna watch and when. I also love how internet TV is able to read my show tastes and preferences based on what I watch!

(This Is It is available stream right now for Showmax subscribers in Kenya).
