So there is a new sitcom coming out this summer!
Meet the Adebanjos!
And let me tell you – I am VERY VERY excited about it.
It is a British-African sitcom about an African father who is struggling to instill African values in his home. And for all my Africans living abroad as a parent or child – we all know how that works… Lol.
Meet the Adebanjos is a family show about a family living in Peckham South London, consisting of Nigerian parents, British children and unwanted extended family.
The show follows a larger than life Dad struggling to instill his old fashion African values in his British household. It is a clash of African traditional values versus British culture.
With the mix of a radical Pentecostal pastor, a reggae loving tutor and a cousin who has just arrived from Nigeria how will Bayo cope and more importantly does he even stand a chance?
I was also happy to see Mr Don’t Jealous Me as one of their characters! It was totally unexpected
when I clicked the cast list, but nonetheless a pleasant surprise. He is to play Cousin Femi. And since he is one of the extended family members Bayo has to cope with then we all know there will be trouble in that house….
That might also explain why he doesn’t update his YouTube as often as he used to… And yes I am a subscriber – Lol.
As an African-American myself I am excited to see what antics this father’s children get up to – and his wife! Not only am I glad that this is a British- African sitcom, I am happy that they are a whole family unit.
A positive reflection on African families rather than the broken black families that seem to feature alot – especially in American television – in my humble opinion.
