Meet The Adebanjos is a Black British sitcom centred around a modern British-African family living in London.

The show follows a larger than life dad who is struggling to instill his old fashioned African values in his reluctant 'new school' British household.

The comedy comes from the typical family ups-and-downs, fuelled by the regular comedic mishaps of the dad (Bayo) and the eccentric lodger Aunty Funke.
