Hullabaloo Estate is no different although most of the cast is from Vioja Mahakamani, a show that was very popular for demonstrating the happenings in an average courtroom.

Hullabaloo Estate Creators
The series was written by Benson Karanja and directed by Phillip Karanja. The two are skilled creators and steered the boat in bringing the show to life and reaching Kenyans around the world.
Hullabaloo Estate Cast
The series features several actors and actresses that work together in making the show a success. After Vioja Mahakamani came to an end in 2015, most of the actors went on a break from the public scene. They came together and decided to leave after some of their colleagues were sent away citing that they had grown old.
The creators of Vioja Mahakamani thought that taking the approach of bringing in new and younger thespians would make the ratings shoot up as they would become appealing to the younger audiences that make up the majority of Kenya’s population.
This was however not the case as the actors believed that there was no way they would be able to recreate what they had created with a new set of people and thus, comradeship went their way. When Hullabaloo estate was created, most of the Vioja Mahakamani cast came on board and even retained their stage names in the latter.
