He steered clear from comparisons in terms of which is the most expensive reality TV show in the region.

He instead urged people to watch the show that gives viewers front row access to his family, lifestyle, music empire and businesses and more, all in one serving.

"Don't talk about the expense, talk about the entertainment." He added.

Reeling from the success of the show, Bahati noted that the show has been great with international audience now calling for its inclusion in their local Netflix bouquet.

"When you want to go big, you go big. You either go big or go home. They did it for Kenya, so when they put the show on the platform, they locked it within Africa, knowing we have fans across the continent.” Bahati explained during an interview with Betty Kyallo on Friday.

"They didn't realize that the Bahati family is global, that's why I've told people to go tag and comment. Let them know that Kenyans are no longer just local," added the singer.

Both Bahati and Diana Marua have been clearing the air on several issues both on the show as well as off the show especially during interviews while also generate traction for their new show.

Among the aspects of his life that the singer opened up on is what informed his choice of a wife before settling down with Diana Marua.

"Two things. First, she had to be saved. Secondly, she had to be older than me. Somehow just to confess, I love my women older," Bahati explained during their Netflix reality show.
