About

"I don't know my grandparents names, how embarrassing is that. But I can name all of Kanye's albums" 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. "Home is no stranger, you are an African man and you have responsibilities as the eldest grandchild" Tackling immigration, identity and displacement, COAT is a humorous and moving response to the mistakes made by elders that leave the next generation uncertain of what is expected of them. About Yomi Yomi Sode balances the line between Nigerian and British cultures, which can be humorous, loving, self-reflective and, at times, uncomfortable. Over the past nine years, he's had work commissioned by The Mayor's Office, BBC World Service/Africa, Channel 4, charities and for the UN Humanitarian Summit.
