A UK/Nigerian television sitcom we first profiled last year, when it made its debut, titled Meet The Adebanjoswill become the first Nigerian sitcom to air on South African public broadcaster SABC.

Starting tomorrow, September 11, Meet the Adebanjos will be broadcast every Tuesday on SABC2 in the 9:30pm timeslot.

The series is centered on a Nigerian-British family (2 Nigerian-born parents and 3 British-Born Kids) living in the UK, and how they adapt to life in Peckham, South London. Generational conflict, tradition versus modernity struggles, culture clashes, as well as hilarity and hijinks abound, as father fights to instill his "old fashioned" African values in his very British household.

Supporting cast includes a radical Pentecostal pastor, a reggae loving tutor, and a cousin who has just arrived from Nigeria.

The producers of the show, which was filmed in a live studio set in London, MTA Productions LTD, promise drama and laughs; it already aired in the UK in December 2011 and reportedly broke records for being the most popular black British TV show in the UK. It received multiple industry award nominations and won the Zulu African Film Academy Award.

It also aired on VOX Africa TV.

You can stay up-to-date with the upcoming series via its website ( or on Facebook (, or Twitter (

    The show is also available here in the states, if you have Dish satellite TV or Roku:

    You should do a profile of Afrotainment, the network that carries the show here. They've quietly built a group of 5 channels focusing on African and African-American themes.
