Big Girl Small World S1

Big Girl Small World is a Kenyan romcom series that follows Ciku, a plus-size woman who stumbles through a journey of self-discovery after a humiliating scandal. In the process, she finds out what it means to live big in a world determined to shrink her. 

The 13-part series stars newcomers June Njenga and Daine Njuguna as Ciku and her former best friend Aisha respectively, with Emmanuel Mugo (Igiza), Fidel Maithya (Single Kiasi), Derek Bbanga (Second Family), and Kui Kabala (Njoro wa Uba) also starring.

The series features an all-female writing team of head writer Angela Ruhinda (Binti), Gathoni Kamau (script continuity on Supa Modo), Wanjiru Kairu (The Agency), Safina Iqbal (Disconnect) and Kui Mwai.

Big Girl Small World is directed by Nick Mutuma, behind the Kalasha-nominated films You Again and Sincerely Daisy, and produced by Kevin Njue of AMVCA and Kalasha-winning film 18 Hours.
