The Real Housewives of Lagos tops Twitter – in South Africa!
The Real Housewives of Lagos (RHOLagos) is now streaming on Showmax, after trending at number one on Twitter from 5pm on Thursday for 15 hours straight ahead of its Friday, 8am launch (with no sign of dropping down the charts at the time of writing).
“Seeing The Real Housewives of Lagos trend at #1 on Twitter in South Africa confirms what we knew all along: that this is going to be not just a hit Nigerian show but a pan-African one,” says Candice Fangueiro, head of content at Showmax.
The latest edition of the hit reality TV show franchise follows the opulent lives of six of the most glamorous women in Africa’s largest megacity: businesswoman Carolyna Hutchings, lawyer and luxury hair brand owner Chioma Ikokwu, Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo, influencer Laura Ikeji-Kanu, PR expert Mariam Timmer, and celebrity stylist Toyin Lawani-Adebayo. In true Lagos style, they will be serving up all the high fashion, luxury, drama, and power-moves that the franchise is known and loved for globally.
