The story behind how ‘Meet The Adebanjo’s’ got to be where it is now in just one year is an incredible tale of the power of technology and new media tools coupled with a visionary team who were passionate about bringing British viewers a slice of their own experience of life, as first-generation born British children of African immigrants. It has gone from being an online phenomenon which now has over 750,000 views, to a TV hit seen by millions of people on several SKY TV channels, a winner of 3 TV awards, international acclaim and is now making a highly-anticipated debut on the London theatre scene.
Debra Odutuyo, the show’s creator and executive producer “Our plan for the live show is to take the same comedic fun that our viewers have enjoyed in their living rooms to the live stage. All the actors will be there and fans of the show will be able to get to see and
meet their favourite stars in the flesh”.
Many have already come to know and love the show’s characters: the hapless Dad ‘Bayo’ who tries to instill his traditional African values into his children, the romance-wanting Mum ‘Gladys’, cheeky brother ‘Tobi’, sassy sister ‘Sade’, the troublesome ‘Aunty Funke’, the wannabe ladies man ‘Femi’ and mischievous next door neighbour ‘Kevin’. For them and for those who are just getting to know the show, Meet The Adebanjo’s promises its audience a great time watching the family and their friends play out their antics on stage.
This show is definitely worth going to watch and great for the whole family to watch!
