According to the station's production manager, Stanley Ngige, 'Becky' enjoyed significant success, particularly in its prime time slot. The series achieved an impressive average of 8 million viewers per day, peaking at 12.5 million viewers at times.

Ngige attributed this consistent viewership to the loyalty of the audience, who tuned in regularly to watch the show back-to-back with the news.

As 'Becky' wraps up, Jiffy Pictures has already lined up a new show to fill its slot. 'Neema,' the upcoming series, is set to premiere on June 10, 2024.
