When career-focused and fierce, Nicol is not running things as an events planner at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, she is a dedicated mom and wife married into Ghanaian royalty.

A former Idols SA contestant, in-demand MC, high-end events planner, brand ambassador, award-winning businesswoman and now 'Real Housewife', charismatic Buli boasts an impressive CV.

The dedicated mom, socialite and construction project manager who loves jogging is a straight shooter but is softer than she seems beneath her exterior. Prins, who also sold her company for eight figures, is learning to navigate life without her husband following his recent death.

Unathi Faku

The self-proclaimed royalty of Gqeberha is a successful salon owner and wife of the city's former mayor who is comfortable in the public eye and having her every move watched. She is also a gym lover and a dedicated and doting mother.

Ashleigh Mather

Fresh-faced, and sweetheart of the group, Mather is a wife and mom in the fast-paced fashion industry, but not a pushover. Her family owns one of the city's biggest clubs, so she certainly has a wild side that might catch her castmates by surprise.
