Highly Anticipated ‘Nilichoma’ Docuseries Set To Premiere

A new 10-episode docu-series chronicles the dramatic journeys of celebrities in Kenya who experienced sudden wealth, only to lose it all.

“The story of rising from nothing to immense wealth is a universal dream, but the subsequent fall is a nightmare we all dread,” said producer Ahmed Deen, known for “Midlife Crisis.”

“Nilichoma showcases the dreams of familiar personalities who suddenly came into large sums of money—whether inherited, won, or awarded—only to see those dreams turn into nightmares through lavish spending, ultimately hitting rock bottom. What’s left are the hard lessons learned,” Deen explained.

“Nilichoma represents the aspirations of Kenyans from all walks of life. The series captures raw, emotional moments that allow viewers to reflect and look into their own hearts through the experiences of the men and women on screen,” added co-producer Isaya Evans.

Nilichoma featuring 10 different stories, offers viewers an immersive emotional experience through personal narratives, interviews, archival photos and videos, and re-enactments. It sheds light on the rise, fall, and ultimate transformation of these individuals.

Among the featured personalities are cricket icon Maurice Odumbe, comedian JB Masandaku, David Ogot—son of renowned author and politician Grace Ogot, and former Samburu millionaire Gabriel Lengishili, among others.

Deen and Evans are co-producing the docu-series under Café Luna Films, known for productions such as “The Real Housewives of Nairobi,” “The Girl with the Yellow Jumper,” “Shimoni,” “Igiza,” and “Ayaanle.”
