Los Angeles, California, United States – May 9, 2016 – Black-ish writer DamilareSonoiki launched a sitcom called “African Booty Scratcher.” The hilarious show sheds light on a Nigerian family’s struggle to balance giving their son a better life with ensuring he maintains their traditional values and cultural identity. The series gives a sneak peek into a diverse and captivating universe that is a welcome addition to the TV landscape.
To help produce additional content such as the TV Pilot and raise the awareness needed to get the show on a major network, the creator launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $30,000 by June 6, 2016. The teaser logged over 80,000 views and received over 4,000 likes on YouTube in the first three days, and the Kickstarter campaign raised over $10,000 in the first three days.
Damilare not only set out to write a hysterical sitcom, but also wanted to help viewers look beyond traditional African stereotypes and show that the African immigrant story is universally relatable. The title of the teaser, ‘African Booty Scratcher’ comes from a name Damilare and countless other African immigrants were called in school. In choosing a provocative title, Damilare paid homage to comedies such as Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat and also aimed to take something negative and poke fun at it in a positive and entertaining way.
