The Real Housewives of Nairobi is now the show with the most first-day views in Showmax history in Kenya. Additionally, the reality show has also been on the top spot of Showmax’s Top 10 most-watched since its premiere.
In celebration of this milestone, Eugene Mbugua, the executive producer at D&R Studios, the production company behind RHONairobi, said, “The team at D&R Studios is elated to have The Real Housewives of Nairobi become the most-watched launch episode ever in the history of Showmax in Kenya. It’s incredibly gratifying to have the sweat and sleepless nights the cast and crew put in appreciated by the audience.”
Apart from breaking Showmax records, RHONairobi also enjoyed online love, topping Twitter trends in Kenya for 2 days straight. “It’s time for western content and African content to be held to the same standards. We couldn’t be happier with D&R Studios for rising to the challenge and making a world-class production. We’d also like to thank our RHONairobi cast for opening up their lives and engaging the crew in organic, no holds barred interactions. The result has been blunt conversations, beautiful moments, and authentic experiences that Kenyans love to see.” Said Denise Mwende, Showmax Content Specialist in East Africa.
