Nairobi, Kenya will host the first season of the “Real Housewives” franchise, which will feature five of the richest women in the nation.
After successful runs in Durban, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Lagos, and Abuja, The Real Housewives will finally make its way to East Africa. The Real Housewives of Nairobi, which premieres on Showmax on February 23, may have struck reality TV gold by expanding the show to further African nations and ensuring continuity with more seasons.
Fans can anticipate a never-ending amount of drama every Thursday when Real Housewives of Nairobi premieres soon.
The reality television program will follow the opulent lives of five Kenyan women who work in the media, entertainment, and entrepreneurship, orchestrating their own dynamics while taking note of the thread and cues that have come to make the program a subject of obsessive viewing.
The Real Housewives franchise, which has been licensed as a format by NBCUniversal Formats, is represented by this East African edition, which is produced by D&R Studios. Find out which cast members will surely hold our interest for several weeks.
1. Susan Kaittany
Being no stranger to the spotlight, Kaittany originally gained notoriety as a teen model and was named Miss Earth Kenya in 2004. She was able to participate in the Miss Earth pageant in the Philippines with competitors from all over the world because of the title.
She gave up her legal career to pursue a career in hospitality due to her intense enthusiasm for fashion and beauty.
Kaittany has established herself as one of Kenya’s leading beauty entrepreneurs and a socialite by founding Posh Palace, a multimillion-dollar beauty empire including hair salons and spas in Nairobi. Her preference for bold haircuts makes Real Housewives of Nairobi’s arrival suggestive of rich visuals. She also keeps up with runway trends by strutting for Kenyan apparel label Aulgah Nato’s most recent collection.
2. Vera Sidika
Vera Sidika is unquestionably the person the Real Housewives of Nairobi need on the show. Sidika is one of Kenya’s most well-known celebrities, and she enjoys stirring up a ruckus with her viewpoints, which has gotten her included on gossip blogs and in entertainment publications. She gained notoriety the previous year when she had to have her butt implants removed owing to health issues, and she encouraged young girls to value their natural bodies.
The 33-year-old originally gained public attention as a video vixen, despite having a big social media following in Kenya. In 2015, she made her reality television debut when she appeared on the show Nairobi Diaries, which also included celebrities and socialites.
She started her herbal slimming tea Veetox in 2017 and opened a beauty salon in Mombasa the following year as a successful businesswoman.
Sidika, who is married to the singer Brown Mauzo, has a daughter and is expecting a second child.
3. Sonal Maherali
A mother of four, Sonal Mahreali has established herself as one of Kenya’s top luxury vloggers. In 2016, she started a YouTube channel where she posts films on shoes, luxury travel, lifestyle, fashion, and a variety of other topics.
Sonal has a fixation with designer, expensive shoes, as needs to be reiterated. Even though she is composed and soft-spoken, she has admitted that for Real Housewives of Nairobi, she is able to break character when necessary.
Maherali is wed to Aly Maherali, the president and chief executive officer of Executive Healthcare Solutions (EHS), the company that represents Aetna International in Africa.
Simba Maharani is a collection of designer shoes and clothing owned by Maherali.
4. Minne Kariuki
Minne Kariuki’s arrival on Real Housewives of Nairobi won’t come as a surprise to those who remember her as Mariah from the Single Kiasi episode on Showmax.
Her on-screen persona features every Real Housewives tonal beat, including residing in an upscale condo, enjoying champagne, and taking private jets to opulent locations. She will, most importantly, bring snark and sassiness to Kenya’s Real Housewives.
Kariuki, the youngest actor on the cast, is married to musician Charles Miugai, aka Lugz Kenya, and they have two daughters together.
5. Lisa Christoffersen
Lisa Christoffersen, a successful businesswoman from Denmark with ties to Tanzania, works at the nexus of selected luxury safari experiences and interior design.
Christoffersen is the creator of Lioness Rally, the first women-only rally team in Kenya, and Lifestyle Nairobi, an artisanal venue with an art gallery, restaurants, spa, organic stores, and fashion boutiques in Nairobi’s diplomatic district of Gigiri.
