Comedy show babatunde diaries tell the story of a born Chinese is his effort to be accepted as Nigerian. Can your brother be yellow when you are black? Babatunde an Asian who wanted to become a Nigerian.
The director Obasi did a good job on this show. Although I did not like all the characters, some are really good. For those who have lived in Nigeria this will be a sweet show. It’s common to call Italian spaghetti, so in Nigeria we name Chinese chinko. What a shock when Mr yellow introduce himself as babatunde from Edo Ekitti. To make the situation worst he call Henry his brother. The story goes about all the misfortune of Mr yellow. We can also admire babatunde courage not to give up in business. The very spirit you will find in Lagos. The city is full of opportunities and dangers. The babatunde diaries portray all these aspect of ‘making it’ in Lagos.
The mention about the local medicine and counterfeit is also great. People have to be careful about medicine they buy. The mixture might treat a disease or cause death. There is a very tine line that you can not leave to luck. It make sense to deal with drugs that have been tested and certified. You remember the church collapse in Lagos killing many? Many magicians and prophet are in the business of divinity and obscure science. Babatunde diaries shows how human condition can make us weak. We believe the charlatans because there no other option.
With the crew set to record the second season of the babatunde diaries. I will be waiting like others to see how the story goes. At the end of the first season babatunde is traveling to Ghana. To become a ghanian from accra who knows. Coming soon at Batunde show. Watch the official trailer.
