Confirming the show’s renewal, co-creator Peace Hyde shared on Instagram:

The Love for ‘YOUNG, FAMOUS & AFRICAN’ Africa’s first @Netflix unscripted original series has been incredible! Thank you to each and everyone of you all for the love and support. Well it’s official! Season 2 of #YOUNGFAMOUSANDAFRICAN is coming!”

Starring 2Baba and Annie Idibia, Diamond Platnumz, Zari Hassan, Khanyi Mbau, DJ Naked among others, the show set in South Africa, follows a brief get-together of the African stars as friends.

The unscripted show debuted in March to a massive reception from subscribers. Top on the list of controversial reactions that trailed the show was how much of Annie & 2Baba’s marriage was shared on the show.

A clip of Annie opening up about the trauma she suffered in the early years of her relationship with the superstar made the rounds for weeks following the show’s release.
