THE I’MPOSSIBLE CONVERSATION (AUTUMN EDITION – SEPTEMBER 11)

On September 11 the brilliant and inspirational autumn edition of the I’mPOSSIBLE conversation took place at L’Oreal headquarters in front of a sold out audience.

THE HACKNEY WEEKEND MUSIC FESTIVAL – IT’S A WRAP!

The BBC Radio Hackney Weekend music festival took place this past weekend and judging from the feedback it was a huge success. I didn’t attend but watched some of the performances on BBC 3.

UK COMEDY: MEET THE ADEBANJO’S – SHORT REVIEW

On the 26th June the first episode of the highly anticipated British-Nigerian sitcom Meet The Adebanjo’s debuted online at midnight. First let me say that the team behind this sitcom have worked extremely hard to get to this point so congratulations to them. Now on to my thoughts….. In the first episode viewers were introduced to the mother (Gladys), bumbling tight-fisted father (Bayo), pre-teen son (Toby) who wants to be a ‘player’ and thinks he’s a bit of a ‘ladies man’, annoying []
