This new comedy series takes an insult that many first and second-generation African children dread and turns it into a show that will have your stomach hurting in laughter.


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.

Just by watching the trailer alone, many of us will be able to relate to dreading bringing a B+ home, daring to pronounce your name wrong in front of your father and seeing how peculiar our neighbors react to our foods.

African Booty Scratcher also stars actor and internet comedian, Dulo, who plays Ayodeji’s father, Tunde. Dulo is also the man behind the Ghanaian jollof vs. Nigerian jollof Birdman spoof.
