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.
