The much awaited Real Housewives of Lagos is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited. 

With the first episode set to premiere on the 8th of April exclusively on Showmax, fans can expect to experience the buzzing city of Lagos through the lives of our six African queens! 

You may already be familiar with the award winning Real Housewives Franchise from the famous RHODurban and RHOJohannseburg set in South Africa, but best believe that the RHOLagos is nothing like you have ever experienced before. 

Produced by Livespot 360, the show will be distributed internationally with new weekly episodes that are set to have us glued to our screens.

As you already know, the first episode of pretty much every show is what sets the pace of the entire series, and boy oh boy, the RHOLagos have set off with quite a bang! 

Having gotten the opportunity to screen the very first episode of the show before the official premiere thanks to Showmax (wink!), allow us to walk you through what to expect and maybe one or two spoilers here and there. 

Meet Your Cast Members.  

We are introduced to 5 out of 6 of the cast members who give us a sneak peak into their opulent lifestyles as well as the new and old friendships that are set to be rekindled during the show. 

Toyin Lawani- Adebayo

Toyin, passionately referred to as Tianah in the show is a true fashion goddess, in her own words, “The King Of All Queens” 

The show kickstarts with her letting us know all about her life, and her love for fun. Her strong personality is hard to miss and while she may come off as intimidating with lots of energy, you definitely want her in your corner

The mother of 3 is married to a creative artist, a musician and photographer Segun Wealth. Tianah is no stranger to controversy, something she says she has no control of and quite frankly doesn't mind. 

Other than the fact that having children with 3 different baby daddies always seems to be a topic of conversation among the general public, this queen is all about finding love and happiness and if getting married for a fourth time were an option, best believe she will be the first to hop on to that train. 

Iyabo Ojo

The actress, producer, director and businesswoman is nothing if not the life of the party. One may describe her as a social butterfly who is ready to show up for those that she loves guns blazing. 

Iyabo’s friendship with Tianah is probably one that has set off quite naturally from the first episode and we can only hope that it stays that way even as we await more heat and drama throughout the series. 

The Tiktok sensation may come off as a tough cookie but she is most definitely a sweetheart and we cannot wait to see the spice that she will be adding on to the show. 

Of keen interest will be her love life which she likes to keep under the wraps but where is the fun in that?

Carolyna Hutchings

Nothing says Material Girl the way Carolyna does. This fine babe is the kind of girl who commands attention the minute she walks into a room with her alluring looks and of course, her powerful personality. 

Yes, she loves being the center of attention. How dare you not notice her? 

The mother of one is a sassy queen who is all about luxury and living it soft. Please, a babe like Carolyna was not built to suffer. 

Having been married to a billionaire, her life has been lined with much controversy, and she has often been termed as a gold digger, which she neither denies nor confirms. 

Her love life will definitely be of keen interest now that we know she has someone in her life. All that’s remaining of course is to find out how many zeroes he has in his bank account. 

The actress is also a career woman who works in the construction industry with a passion for interior design.

Chioma Ikokwu

Chioma is a representation of that one popular girl in school who everyone wanted to be friends with. She is smart, intelligent and a boss babe who is not afraid to go for what she wants. 

The influencer owns a number of businesses and is always in the business of looking good as well. 

Having spent most of her time in the UK, the lawyer has been exposed to a lot of luxury and opulence from the way she presents herself and how she relates to the rest of the women. 

Chioma has taken a much subtle and a bit reserved role in the first episode but from the look of things she is quite opinionated about her fellow cast members and we have to agree that she is definitely what this show needs.

Can we also talk about her hair! Damn girl!

Laura Ikeji-Kanu

The episode ends with the introduction of Laura who is a true hustler. She loves money and from the looks of it, money loves her right back. 

The mother of two has been happily married for 5 years and it will be fun to have an in depth look into her picture perfect marriage. 

From this first episode, you can already tell that Laura is the kind of babe that screams drama. We wouldn’t be surprised if she is the first one to stir up the waters within the group, but hey, is that not what we are here for?

Seeing the ladies come together for Tianah’s event and witnessing the tension when their powerful personalities clash and intertwine at the same time has definitely started off the show in the right momentum, and we cannot wait to see how these relationships will affect their individual lives. 

Buckle up ladies and gentlemen, it’s going to be a bumpy, bumpy ride!
