Lulu Hassan and husband Rashid Abdalla are the most coveted celebrity couple in Kenya.
Yaani, they are couple goals.
Most married people want to be them.
The TV celebrity couple is know for gushing over each other in public and this seems to be spicing up things in private. Anyhow, the old adage does say the family that works together stays together…yes, that includes praying together.
The power couple have been working on Kenya’s first ever telenovela dubbed Maza, depicting the unfolding intrigues and drama of a once successful family whose strong bond is crushed by a best friend’s envy in one night..
The show that is produced by Lulu Hassan features five main characters Dingo (husband), Lea (Wife), Maya (Daughter), Badi(Son) and Kate (Best friend to wife) through which the plot is realized using other supporting characters.
It flashes back 10 years ago when LEA, DINGO’s wife mysteriously disappears and never to be found or heard again. After years of an emotional roller-coaster, DINGO and his two kids MAYA and BADI must find closure; the court declares LEA officially dead but her cousin sister PILI suspects malice and she is not ready to let go of this matter that easily.
When LEA’s best friend, KATE visits, she is warmly appreciated and becomes the perfect replacement for LEA. Behind the scenes, the family lawyer, WAKILI and KATE have planned for years to settle for LEA’s wealth. Finally when the opportunity knocks, KATE wastes no time. But when she arrives into the mansion as DINGO’s wife, the dark aura that surrounds her – reveals itself. She is a dark witch…and so begins endless family trauma.
Maza is fourth of the 15 new local productions by Maisha Magic East to launch for the year 2017/2018.
