By Winnie Mabel February 13th, 2023 2 min read

The Real Housewives of Nairobi is set to premier on February 23, 2023, on streaming platform Showmax. This is the second time the Real Housewives franchise will be debuting in an African country after the Real Housewives of Lagos.

In her February 13, 2023,  statement, Kenyan socialite and social media personality Vera Sidika, 33, intimated that she won’t be bringing much drama to the show unlike how her name, personality and brand are associated with scandal, nudity and vulgarity on social media streets.

“I think my fans expect to see so much drama; that’s what people think when they hear the name Vera Sidika. They just think, “Oh my God, the drama is just too much.”

But the funniest thing is that I’m a very sweet person, an amazing mum, a great wife, and I think that’s the side that most Kenyans don’t get to see. This is going to be a different book because what they expect wouldn’t be as much as what they’ll get to see.

I’ve been very misunderstood a couple of times and I think this is a very great space for people to get to know Vera and be the judge,” said Vera Sidika.

As she is only engaged to be married and not yet a legal wife, she clarified that in her world and in today’s era, a housewife is “not like a stay-at-home mum anymore. A housewife is a boss; she runs the city, literally.

And so, The Real Housewives of Nairobi is simply a group of elite women who are business owners, who do big things and take over the city. We’re just the it girls!”

“My husband has been very supportive; he’s my biggest cheerleader. Anything I would love to do or anything I get involved in; he supports me a hundred percent.

We’ve allowed our daughter to also be on the show, and he also supports that. It’s just so beautiful because it’s not easy to get a man who’s willing to really cheer you on and say, “Big up, you’re doing good. Keep going!”

I feel like I’m very blessed that I have a very open-minded man who understands that it’s all about growth,” Vera Sidika added when asked about what her husband, singer Brown Mauzo, thought about the reality show.

Upon premiering, the Real Housewives of Nairobi will be airing new episodes every Thursday. Aside from Vera Sidika, the reality show will also follow the lives of actress Minnie Kariuki, entrepreneur Susan Kaittany, luxury influencer Sonal Mherali and interior designer-cum-rally driver Lisa Christoffersen.
