The women of Oh Sister! include gospel singer and pastor Linel Munyali, aka Size 8, who is all about her faith, spirituality and family; celebrity YouTuber Millicent Wambui, aka Milly wa Jesus, who is one of Kenya’s most prominent influencers; singer and songwriter Bernice Nduku, aka Lady Bee; gospel singer Veronicah Mushana, aka Niccah the Queen; Kikuyu gospel singer Betty Bayo; singer and minister Janet Otieno, who is one of the most prominent gospel artists in Kenya; and beauty entrepreneur Priscilla Ndanu Maina.

The women are joined on the show by their spouses, including Size 8’s husband DJ Mo, one of Kenya’s most prominent gospel DJs; and content creator and influencer Kabi wa Jesus, husband to Milly wa Jesus.

Oh Sister! is produced by BMF member and five-time Groove Awards Video Producer of the Year Samuel Maina, aka Sammy Dee, who has since pivoted into reality TV production with projects like Date My Family Kenya.

Bae Beyond Borders

New Showmax dating reality series Bae Beyond Borders follows four South African women who are eager to find themselves a Nigerian man to date and hopefully marry.

As they embark on this unique journey to find love, the women have their pick of 12 Nigerian bachelors from different walks of life. Through online speed dating, they collectively choose eight men who’ve impressed them the most. They then travel to Nigeria to meet them face to face and pick their favourites. Then they’ll head back to South Africa with them – and into a gorgeous villa in Cape Town, to see if they want to move forward together as a couple.

Bae Beyond Borders is executive produced by Zinzi Velelo Alake from POP24, who also produced the record-breaking Showmax Original reality show The Mommy Club.

New episodes release every Monday.
