Showmax has announced media personality, Uti Nwachukwu, as the host for the Reunion of its hit reality show, The Real Housewives of Lagos (RHOLagos) which is set to air on the 1st and 8th of July, 2022.
The media personality is no stranger to the world of reality TV as he won the 2010 Big Brother Africa season 5, dubbed the “Big Brother Africa All Stars.” Following his win, he has successfully hosted several TV shows and red carpets. Some notable hosting duties include Africa Magic’s popular magazine show, Jara, which ran for 11 seasons, and the Red carpet of the biggest awards ceremony in Africa, The Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards for seven years and counting.
The Real Housewives of Lagos follows the opulent lives of six of the most glamorous women in Lagos, Nigeria. The women include Carolyna Hutchings, Laura Ikeji-Kanu, Chioma Ikokwu, Toyin Lawani-Adebayo, Iyabo Ojo, and Mariam Timmer.
The show has been entertaining and explosive with the official hashtag #RHOLagos making a constant appearance on the Twitter trend table every week. The cast members also make the trend tables with their individual names trending all day long. The first episode of the show also broke the record for the most first-day views on Showmax Nigeria.
Two notable explosive moments from the season occurred during the fight between Laura and Carolyna and the fight between Chioma and Carolyna. The latter fight was one the audience did not see coming as the two women had been best of friends until that moment. There was also the off-camera fight between Carolyna and Iyabo which left fans with a lot of questions.
The RHOLagos reunion will see all six ladies sit down to speak to issues that occurred on the show, and situations that also happened outside of the cameras, with Uti moderating the session and drilling in for all the juicy details.
Speaking on the announcement, Uti Nwachukwu said, “The Real Housewives of Lagos has been a huge part of my Fridays since it premiered and I’m so excited to be able to sit down with the amazing cast to talk about the show. Being a lover of reality TV and also an ex-participant of a reality show myself, this feels like home and I will definitely be having a good time speaking to the ladies at this reunion.”
Candice Fangueiro, Head of Content at Showmax Africa added, “The first season of The Real Housewives of Lagos has been really exciting. The decision to have Uti host the reunion was just perfect as he is a product and lover of reality TV and has the right energy to anchor the show.”
RHOLagos Reunion is a two-episode show and will be dropping exclusively on Showmax on the 1st and 8th of July, 2022.
