Betty Kyallo’s reality series, Kyallo Kulture, is coming to showmax.
Betty Kyallo and her sisters will star in Kyallo Kulture, a new Kenyan reality series that will launch on ShowMax shortly. Betty Kyallo and her two sisters, Mercy and Gloria, will be featured in the 13-part reality series.
Betty Kyallo is a successful entrepreneur and one of Kenya’s most well-known media figures. She’s hosted popular shows and anchoring news for top stations around the country, including KTN and K24.
The three sisters will show the benefits and drawbacks of sisterhood.
They’ll also talk about their love lives, motherhood, being a woman, and running a company.
“Gloria, Mercy, and Betty represent the urban Kenyan woman,” says Eugene Mbugua, the creator of the reality series. “They’re hard-working entrepreneurs, they like to have fun, and they are not in any way held back by what society thinks of them.”
Eugene is one of the most sought-after documentary-reality filmmakers in Kenya.
He has been the brains behind some of Kenya’s biggest docu-reality shows. These are the likes of the 2021 Kalasha nominee Sol Family, and the 2022 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice (AMVCA) nominee This Love.
Kyallo Kulture will premiere on Showmax on 17 June 2022.
“We spent many days shooting test footage to see if our idea was valid,” says Eugene. “We’ve had several pilots that had to be reworked and we’ve gone through a series of different storylines before settling on the season that we have now.”
In Kenya in 2020 and 2021, the series Sol Family and This Love (both directed by Eugene Mbugua) were among the top 10 most-watched shows on Showmax. Could he do it again in 2022? Let’s see how the public reacts after Kyallo Kulture is out.
