Are you a child of West African parents who dreaded bringing home a B+ on your report card as a kid? If so, there is a new comedy series that we are pretty sure you are going to love and relate to.
The series named after the insult “African Booty Scratcher” that many who grew up in the 90s sadly came in contact with at school. It takes the name to encompass the experience of living as the child of an African immigrant and will have you rolling over laughing about the common struggle of living in a world that does not totally understand you.
African Booty Scratcher, created, written and produced by Damilare Sonoiki, whose credits include ABC’s black-ish, touches on a Nigerian-immigrant family and their struggle to balance the pursuit of a better life for their son, Ayodeji (Dani Dare), while wanting him to stay true to his traditional values and Nigerian identity.
Watch the trailer and then share this with someone who grew up in the 90s as a second generation African immigrant.
