Kyallo Kulture, a new Kenyan reality series about Betty Kyallo and her sisters, will premiere soon on ShowMax. The 13-part reality series will dive into the personal lives of Betty Kyallo and her two sisters, Mercy, and Gloria.
Betty Kyallo is one of Kenya’s most prominent media personalities and a thriving entrepreneur. She has worked for premier stations in the country like KTN and K24, hosting popular shows and anchoring news.
The three sisters will give a glimpse into the joys and pains of sisterhood. They will also share more about their love lives, parenting, womanhood, and doing business.
“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.”
Sol Family and This Love (Both directed by Eugene Mbugua) were among the ten most-watched shows on Showmax in Kenya in 2020 and 2021, respectively. Could he pull another for 2022? Let’s see how the audience likes it after Kyallo Kulture drops.
