East African country Kenya will be thrust into the spotlight and allowed to shine as Africa's latest instalment of the Real Housewives franchise, Real Housewives of Nairobi (RHONairobi), premieres on Showmax later this month.

RHONairobi premieres on the streaming platform on 23 February, with new episodes every Thursday after that.

It stars serial entrepreneur Susan Kaittany, media personality and entrepreneur Vera Sidika, luxury influencer, fashion collector and entrepreneur Sonal Maherali, actor and entrepreneur Minnie Kariuki, interior designer, author, and business owner, rally driver and luxury safari curator Lisa Christoffersen.

"Each of the ladies has a strong personality and sure identity of themselves," Showmax's content specialist in East Africa, Denise Mwende, said in a press statement. "They are hardworking, affluent, influential and unapologetic women who are not ashamed to live largely and live well because they have earned it. They're also a representation of diverse communities we have in Kenya."

Married to Jaguar's former manager and businessman Charles Muigai, Kariuki is the youngest of the housewives. The mother of two, whom she shares with her husband, stars in Showmax's original drama series Single Kiasi and is described as bold and unapologetic about who she is.
