You may know Tania Omotayo from her beautiful pictures on social media or from seeing her out and about with your favourite celebrities, but nothing will quite prepare you for the Tania you’re about to meet on Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Lagos.
Joining the cast of the Showmax Original this season, the 31-year-old will bring an interesting dynamic to the show that is bound to take a lot of people by surprise.
A multilingual – she speaks English, German and Yoruba fluently! – mother, wife, entrepreneur, model, actress and now reality TV star, Tania describes herself as funny and bubbly; and viewers can expect to see all these sides of her when The Real Housewives of Lagos premieres on Friday, 29 September on Showmax.
Born in Lagos to an Austrian father and a Nigerian mother, Tania was once the talk of the town for her romantic ties with Nigerian superstar Wizkid in 2011. The duo has since broken up, and Tania is happily married with a daughter.
She is the creative director and founder of Ziva Lagos, a ready-to-wear fashion brand that caters to the modern woman; and Ziva Kids, a concept children’s store, both in Lagos. She’s also the proud author of Sarai’s Culture Day, a children’s book inspired by her daughter, Sarai. She wrote the book to help Sarai and other kids of mixed cultural backgrounds navigate the world.
In 2018 Tania was listed on the Forbes 30 under 30 List for creatives for her contribution to the Nigerian fashion industry.
The entrepreneur has been open about her struggles with endometriosis and how she has emerged stronger, using her experience as an avenue to educate and inspire.
Tania and fellow new cast member Faith Morey will be joining the returning cast, Chioma Ikokwu, Iyabo Ojo, Laura Ikeji-Kanu, Mariam Timmer and Toyin Lawani Adebayo, on Season 2 of The Real Housewives Of Lagos.
The Real Housewives of Lagos S2 will stream from 29 September 2023 on Showmax, with new episodes on Fridays. Viewers can join the conversation this season by following Showmax Nigeria on social media and using the hashtag #RHOLagos.
