The second season of the reality series “Kyallo Kulture” is now streaming on Showmax, with new episodes airing every Tuesday.
“Kyallo Kulture S2” follows the Kyallo sisters Betty, Mercy and Gloria as they continue on their journey through sisterhood and what it means to be a Kyallo, as well as their individual journeys into entrepreneurship and self-discovery.
Here are some things to expect this season;-
More honesty and vulnerability
Coming off his success with “The Real Housewives of Nairobi”, executive producer Eugene Mbugua says the new season is full of more vulnerable and honest moments with the sisters that the Kenyan audience will appreciate.
“It takes the cast being vulnerable and honest on camera to make a hit reality show because viewers are very quick to pick up what is fake or pretentious,” says Eugene. “In the first season, everyone working on the production was getting to know each other better on camera. Things were a lot easier in season two as the sisters are now used to the camera as they share their all with the audience.”
Mercy Kyallo as the main character
Season two also sees Mercy take centre stage as she reintroduces herself to her fans, an opportunity the middle Kyallo sister welcomes with open arms.
“I’ve always wanted to be a movie actress or a big star, and it looked like this was the opportunity coming to me to finally realise that dream,” says Mercy. “Season one was very different and tough for me. I took a break and I thought about everything. I had to rediscover myself, and my sisters and get a new job. And you will see in season two that I get back in the groove of things.”
Mercy is excited for the new journey and what the future brings. “I can’t wait for season sixteen when I have my second child and Gloria, her first, with Betty building her mansion in Karen,” she says.
Betty Kyallo embraces her sexuality
Betty, who admits she felt she was a bit timid in season one, is bringing the sexy back, while also showing a very vulnerable and raw side.
“In Kyallo Kulture season two, I’m fierce, vivacious and unafraid of my sexuality. The fans love who I am but it will be interesting to serve them a different side of Betty,” says Betty. “I also want people to know a side of me that cries, a side that feels that I’m appreciated and valued. So we’re bolder in our thoughts, feelings, traumas, and celebrations.”
New loves play a big role this season
Betty and Mercy will also be introducing their new relationships in season two, an experience that is not new to Gloria.
Gloria Kyallo shares what it means to love publicly
Gloria, the youngest Kyallo sister, whose relationship with her boyfriend Ken was featured in the first season, is hoping she can nurture the relationship better into the new season.
“It was a lot of pressure having him (Ken) on the show because Mercy and Betty kept reminding me that he’s the masculine energy in the group, but speaking from his point of view, I feel like it was really hard for him,” Gloria says.
