Runtime: 20:35 minutes

Set in Atlanta, this sitcom stars Mike Bend in the role of Mike Johnson, the fun-loving and smack talking club promoter who navigates his way through the misadventures of his life with the help of his attorney and girlfriend, Victoria Kennedy- the stasis in this duo.

Mike works for the night club, Suga D’s, where he is determined to increase his net worth by any means necessary and build an empire with Victoria, whom he plans to make his wife someday, despite the naysayers. Episodes will focus on Mike’s antics as he climbs (or slips on) the ladder of success amidst an unforgettable mix of characters like Bishop Shoulder Lean, Old Aunt Mettie, Rufus, and anyone else pegged as an unwanted guest at Mike’s Place.

As the series progresses, Mike eventually becomes the owner of the nightclub and Victoria becomes partner at her law firm. Despite the shenanigans, with Mike at the center of them all, the two manage to maintain their relationship and make it to the altar, unscathed.

The Hyperrealistic Art Of Child Prodigy Kareem Waris Olamilekan
At only 11 years old, Nigerian artist Kareem Waris Olamilekan is on his way to becoming one of the greats.

Kareem Waris Olamilekan, an 11-year-old artist based in Lagos, is receiving global recognition due to his phenomenal artwork. Describing his style as hyperrealistic, Olamilekan began drawing at the tender age of six. By eight years old, he became a professional, making him the youngest professional artist in Nigeria.

To succeed at hyperrealism, extreme patience is required. While drawing, Olamilekan precisely captures even the most minuscule details in order to bring his works to life. “I try to focus on it to get the detail in the picture and in the artwork too,” he told DD News, adding that those who lack patience will not achieve hyperrealism.

Olamilekan’s typical subject matter includes drawing from everyday life in Lagos, his personal experiences, and family. However, similar to all great artists, his work has a more profound meaning than what initially meets the eye. Take “Daily Bread,” for example. “The inspiration behind it is that something going on around me, especially my family,” Olamilekan explains. “The sweat on it symbolizes hard work and struggling. And the spoon symbolizes food. Everybody in my society has little now, or my streets, they struggle, struggle, they sweat for their eats.”

The child prodigy began receiving worldwide attention after recently meeting with the French president, Emmaneul Macron, who was deeply moved by his work. At only 11 years old, this is only the beginning of Olamilekan’s accomplishments. His art teacher, Adeniyi Adewole, believes that he is one of the most gifted of his students, saying, “He can go far, farther than even beyond our expectations because I believe with what he has been doing, he’s going somewhere greater.”READ MORE........
