Machachari became a millenial favorite show but with the new changes made in Citizen TV, we will no longer be seeing it.
Since we know it was one of the most popular shows for the youth, we had to to find out what is going on. The show which revolved around the lives of a young boy and girl growing up in you every day Nairobi setting.
But in recent episodes, we have realized that the children grew up which beats the idea of the story line. Speaking to Kiss100 the production manager Stanley Ngige said,
The story came to an end. This Friday is the grand finale.The show started as a kids’ show but the characters outgrew it. It didn’t evolve to remain relevant to the target audience, and the best we could do is develop the story to come to an end so that we can start a new show (‘Johari’) for the same target audience
The manager said before they cancelled the show, they prepared the crew. We had several counselling sessions, mentorship and preparations for them to move on.
He added that the feedback was positive and the media house will still support the ‘Machachari‘ crew in any way especially with their careers.
“Tyler Mbaya, popularly known as Baha, has grown up to be a producer of his own content. Some of the girls who featured on the show have already recorded music albums, which shall be given airplay on Viusasa,” he said.
Ngige also pointed out that working with the crew was a great experience.
Seeing them grow up and become professionals and attract advertisements for TV was amazing
These new developments came before we received sad news that the Machachari director’s wife passed on. Her name is similar to a characters name, Mama Baha and the rumours went out she is the one who passed.
