Our Strategic Objectives
This is the first of its kind show billed to be a pleasant night to remember. The show aims to be different by
1) Creating a platform to showcase UK Afrocomedy and other UK Afrocentric talents in Arts and
The aim is to create opportunities for UK aspiring Afrotainment actors, comedians, artists, filmmakers and
other interested parties where Nollywood meets Nollycomedy, showcase African cinematic and cultural
experiences that inspire and promote pure African stories told by Africans and other interested parties.
2) Highlight and attempt to correct some of the social ills in our community, show our youths a better pathway
and hopefully change their philosophy for good. And refocus their energy, drive and ambitions. Additionally,
health issues like leukaemia (cancer of the blood) within ethnic communities in the UK will be highlighted. We
are partnering with UK charities that are committed to these causes. This year we are partnering with:
a) The African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust (ACLT) – London based blood cancer charity “committed to helping
provide hope to patients living with blood cancer and other illnesses where a matched donor (stem cell, blood
or organ) is required to save a life”. ACLT’s underlying ethos is “to educate communities across the UK by
raising awareness about stem cell, blood and organ donation”.
b) The Damilola Taylor Trust (DTT) is a charity based in South London “committed to providing inner-city
youths with opportunities to play, learn and live their lives free of fear and violence, and with optimism for a
future where opportunities flourish”. The DTT’s aim is to “restore the hope, optimism and self-esteem of
youths” so they can have lofty aspirations and work to attain their innate potentials.
