MA EMPRESS CAST AND FULL STORY
“Real queens fix each other’s crowns” may as well be the tagline of Ma’Empress, the new comedy-drama series on Showmax that follows five women and the everyday struggles they face as they navigate through life, career, friendships, relationships and everything in between.
Produced by the power duo of Philip Karanja and Abel Mutua (Phil-It Productions) and directed by Kenji Gatheca, Ma Empress hits close to home as it tackles various issues affecting women in modern society, like sexism, body shaming, marital struggles and infidelity, and even issues of identity and womanhood. All while maintaining a sense of humour that borrows from pop culture references and modern Kenyan slang – a signature style that Phil-It perfected even with its 2017 award-winning series Sue na Jonnie.
