Yomi Ṣode opens Africa Writes 2018 with a special performance of his previously sold-out show. Picture this: Nigeria. A grandmother passes. London, a son cooks a pot of stew for his mother hoping to uncover hidden stories and unanswered questions.
“I don’t know my grandparents names, how embarrassing is that. But I can name all of Kanye’s albums”
Coat is an honest and emotional story of Junior. Born in Nigeria, he leaves at the age of 9 and heads to London, leaving behind a life that he loved and was settled in.
“Home is no stranger, you are an African man and you have responsibilities as the eldest grandchild”
Suitable for ages 16+
