African video streaming service, Showmax has just teased the second instalment of the Real Housewives franchise in Nigeria, The Real Housewives of Abuja (RHOAbuja).

A teaser image for the show was published on Showmax’s social media pages in the early hours of Tuesday, January 17, 2023. The Instagram caption read, “Stepping into the luxurious world of the Abuja babes. The Real Housewives of Abuja coming soon to Showmax.”

Like The Real Housewives of Lagos and the other shows in the franchise, RHOAbuja will follow the lives of influential and successful women as they navigate their social lives, relationships, businesses, careers, and family within the capital city and beyond. In true Abuja style, the series is expected to showcase influence, power play, luxury, glam and drama among the rich and ultra-wealthy socialites.

It’s no wonder that the new reality series is debuting barely a year after the successful outing of the first Nigerian instalment, The Real Housewives of Lagos, which premiered on April 8, 2022, and received raving reviews, while spending several weeks on the trend table on social media platforms such as Twitter.

RHOAbuja is set to follow the same format and it’s already predicted to be a hit among the audience. This version will be the fourth instalment of the Real Housewives franchise in Africa and it’s produced by Delmedia Productions.

The Real Housewives of Abuja (RHOAbuja) marks the eighth version of the hit format in Africa and is set to premiere exclusively on Showmax on February 17, 2023, with new episodes dropping every Friday.

The new series will follow the luxurious lives of six influential and successful women in Abuja. The women include Arafa, Comfort Booth, OJ Posharella, Princess Jecoco, Samantha Homossany and Tutupie as they navigate their opulent lives, relationships, family and businesses within the powerful city of Abuja and beyond.

Arafa is an art entrepreneur, creative director and founder of Selaralifestyle. She is married and a mother to amazing twins.  Comfort Booth is a lawyer, social commentator, travel blogger and talk show host. She is a partner at Asia Ahmed and Co.

Ojoma Sule, also known as OJ Posharella, is an entrepreneur and the CEO of Posharella Group of Companies. She is also the founder of Posharella Life Foundation, an NGO with the mission to create a better life, society and world.

Princess Jecoco is a lawyer, brand ambassador, influencer, content creator and hotelier. She is currently the managing director of the Sefcon group of hotels. She is married and a mother to two beautiful, energetic kids.

Samantha Homossany is a wellness entrepreneur and creative director of Zohi Taglit. She is passionate about art, fashion and style. She is married to an Abuja-based Israeli millionaire and is a mother of four children. Tutupie is a trained and certified chef and event curator. She is the creative director of Urban Day Party.

The ladies will give viewers an exclusive glimpse into their fabulous and luxurious lives. Set in a powerful city like Abuja, the new series promises to entertain, showcasing the hottest and most intriguing social scenes across the city, providing exclusive access to the ultra-rich.

Speaking about the show, Dr Busola Tejumola, executive head of content and West Africa channels at MultiChoice, said, “We are excited to announce The Real Housewives to the power city of Abuja. Telling our local story is at the core of what we do, and we are glad to continue this partnership with NBCUniversal Formats to bring the franchise to a second city in Nigeria. 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.”
