Sultana is a new program airing on Kenya’s Citizen TV starring Lolani Kalu playing the ‘Babu’ character as one of the actors. Lolani Kalu is an experienced journalist who retired as a news reporter on NTV. Kalu is officially back on our screens as a thespian.
The program kicked off on Monday, 7th March and was set to replace Zora, the show that has had many Kenyans talking. It airs on Citizen TV from 1930hrs to 2000hrs every weekday (Monday to Friday). The fun fact about this new program is that it is also produced by Maria and Zora producer, Jiffy Pictures, a film company owned by Lulu Hassan and her husband, TV news presenter, Rashid Abdalla.
After the award-winning show Maria, followed by the famous Zora, fans expect nothing less than perfection on the new show. Could Sultana be it? Will it be able to have Kenyans to their screens like Maria did?
On the premiere of Sultana Episode One on Citizen TV, we first encounter a number of actors and actresses who play various roles. What excites many fans is the fact that Lolani Kalu is back on our screens. The setting of the drama series is at the coastal region of Kenya. If you have watched the season premiere of the drama series, I bet you have already identified what the drama is all about – cultural backwardness.
We first encounter Major Jabali who still believes that he cannot have a firstborn child to be a girl as this will be a sign of bad omen. We also encounter Bi. Salama, a midwife who believes that she has been sidelined for not being literate and thus only attends to low class families. Bi Salama was only required when a trained doctor delayed to arrive to attend to Jabali’s wife, Bi. Ua.
Sultana Citizen TV Cast, Actors, Actresses and their real names
Kenyans are already in love with the show especially after having a glance at a teaser of the drama series which aired severally on Citizen TV. Moreover, even more Kenyans will love the show because they will wait to see what Lolani Kalu will have to offer.
As the norm of the production company, Jiffy pictures, some movie personalities have been surfacing across various drama series produced by the company. For instance, we have had many actors and actresses who had roles in the Maria Drama series and were given other roles in the Zora series. We consequently expect surprises in the Sultana Tv show.
