Bobo Omotayo is interviewed and filmed in this new 6-minute documentary based on his successful book; ‘London Life, Lagos Living’. It is directed by LA-based filmmaker, Francesca Tilley-Gyado.
Here Omotayo elaborates on slangs, phrases and metaphors used in his book which was released seven months ago. He also talks about his up bringing and the influence it had on his unique writing and interesting story angle.
This documentary is not so much a story of ‘the journey so far’ but more a snapshot into what a typical week is like for the author and contributors to the book. This documentary is testament that it is possible for a hopeless dreamer to dream in ‘flights of fancy’ but yet have his ‘flights’ for his singular critic.
