Following the screening of the first episode, the cast sat down with Olateru-Olagbegi, as they shared their thoughts on how they felt to be part of the season.
One of the new ‘housewives’, Faith Morey, said, “The franchise is a huge platform, so I obviously wanted to be part of it. I was so glad when I got that call.”
On her part, Tania Omotayo said, “I am true to myself. Nothing about me is fake or rented.”
Returning cast members, Chioma Ikokwu and Iyabo Ojo, equally expressed their excitement about being part of the show for a second season, and hinted that fans should expect to see more of their lives and loves.
Speaking on what viewers should expect from the new season, the Managing Director of Livespot 360, Tiwa Medubi, said, “All I am going to say is that episode one is all the sneak peek you need. There was the highest level of fashion, friendship, and bickering, because that is what happens when you put people in the same space. But most of all, these women allowed us into the vulnerable parts of their lives.”
