The Real Housewives franchise is expanding in Africa as Showmax introduces The Real Housewives of Abuja (RHOAbuja).

While Lagos has made a name for itself as the commercial hub of Nigeria - and debuted Real Housewives of Lagos in 2022 - the country's capital city, Abuja, is known as the city of wealth and power. 

Dr Busola Tejumola, executive head of content and West Africa channels at MultiChoice, says, "The show will explore the power and influence of Abuja through the eyes of these fabulous women who are both unique and very entertaining. We are delighted and are certain the viewers will enjoy watching."
