Showmax has revealed The Real Housewives of Lagos Season 2 cast, releasing the first teaser trailer for the new set of episodes at the same time.
Earlier today (September 8), the streaming service confirmed via a Variety release that the RHOLagos season 2 cast will include Nollywood actor Iyabo Ojo, celebrity designer and stylist Toyin Lawani Adebayo, and socialites and business women Chioma Ikokwu, Laura Ikeji-Kanu and Mariam Timmer.
Two new Housewives are joining for season 2 and they are fashion entrepreneur Tania Omotayo and former model and socialite Faith Morey.
“The Real Housewives of Lagos follows the lives of some of Lagos’ most affluent and influential women, showcasing their extravagant lifestyle while navigating the intricacies of their high-society circles,” reads the Variety write up. “Season 2 will also delve deeper into the lives of the housewives, revealing their ambitions and personal triumphs.”
“The Real Housewives of Lagos shattered records on our platform and dominated conversations on and off social media throughout its run, so it’s really a no-brainer that we’d bring it back. Beyond the show’s entertainment value, ‘RHOLagos’’ cultural impact can’t be ignored,” said Busola Tejumola, the Executive head, content and West Africa channels at MultiChoice, in a statement. “The feedback from fans shows that in no small way, the show helped put one of Africa’s most important cities and its vibrant culture on the map. We are thrilled to do it all over again and even bigger this season.”
“This season is as real as reality gets. In addition to showing some real-life issues faced by women – particularly African women – including balancing family and career, relationships and societal pressures, we also delved into issues around health. But of course, the drama is still served a la carte,” added Darey Art-Alade, chief creative director at Livespot 360, the producers of RHOLagos season 2, in a statement.
As previously reported on TVDeets.com, Showmax started teasing Season 2 just a week or so ago.
Season 1 of The Real Housewives of Lagos first premiered back in April 2022 and starred Carolyna Hutchings, Laura Ikeji, Chioma Ikokwu, Toyin Lawani-Adebayo, Iyabo Ojo, and Mariam Timmer, and was a hit with local viewers so it makes sense that the streamer brought it back for another round.
The Real Housewives of Lagos season 2 premieres September 29 on Showmax with new episodes dropping every Friday.
