"The love for ‘YOUNG, FAMOUS & AFRICAN’, Africa’s First Netflix Unscripted Original Series has been incredible! Thank you to each and every one of you all for the love and support!" Peace Hyde, the British-Ghanaian television producer, who created the series, posted on her LinkedIn Monday.
Zari Hassan is returning in second season of ‘Young, Famous & African’
The Netflix TV series 'Young, Famous and African' has been confirmed for Season Two and socialite Zarinah Hassan, alias Zari the Boss Lady, will be in it.
"Well, it’s OFFICIAL! Season 2 of #YOUNGFAMOUSANDAFRICAN is coming! LET'S GO!"
The series, whose first season was released on March 18, was well received, but some people questioned the young in the title of the series, as most of the actresses are in their late thirties and early forties.
The series looked into the social and private lives of celebrities picked from South Africa, Nigeria, Zimbabwe and Tanzania.
There is South African actress Khanyi Mbau, who is 31; Nigerian actress Annie Macaulay-Idibia, who is 37; Zari Hassan, 41; Nigerian singer Diamond Platnumz, 41; South African media personality Andile Ncube, 41; Nigerian celebrity fashion stylist, Swanky Jerry; and South African DJ Quinton Paul Masina alias Naked DJ, 41.
To complete the list is Zimbabwean rapper Nadia Nakai, 32; South African model Kayleigh Schwark, 27, and Nigerian musician Innocent Ujah Idibia, known by his stage name 2Baba, who is 46 years old.
The series has very interesting scenes, the most memorable being the turmoil in the marriage of the Idibias, Platinumz showing he is still interested in his ex-wife Zaria despite him having feels for Nakai and the closing scene where Platinumz and Ncube find each other at Zari's house.
Hyde, the series' creator did not mention when the second season of 'Young, Famous and African' will be released.
The 36-year-old television producer has over a decade in the media industry, and before her latest Netflix hit she worked on 'My Worst Day with Peace Hyde' (three seasons) where she speaks to Africa’s billionaires and 'Forbes Woman Africa’s Against the Odds' (two seasons) on the CNBC Africa channel on DSTV.
