Kenya: Daily Soap Opera to Be Launched Soon
Kenyan producer Alison Ngibuini and founder of production house Al Is On Productions is working on the first ever East African soap opera. "Initially it will air twice a week. This will be our very own BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, our own RHYTHM CITY or SCANDAL. We already have a sponsor on board and a TV partner but that will be revealed soon. It will be a great platform for sponsors to look into marketing their brands in a proud Kenyan production. The show will cut across all classes of people," Alison told Word Is.

  1. While I'm glad about Bren staying I have to admit to being confused. Louise should be staying too after all she's playing his mother. I just wish they'd get rid of James Scott since he's the most overused "actor" on that soap.

    I just wonder what they'll do with Quinn since Chloe's leaving and Vivian's leaving. So what storyline does he have left? Oh yeah there's Kate but she just wants revenge on Chloe since she's her new number one of the chick she hates most. Well it gives Sami a break.
