Sophia Acheampong

Growing Yams in London

Generations collide in this delightful story of a Ghanian teenager who loves everything western, and the parents who just want her to understand and appreciate her African roots. For Makeeda life is all about having fun, texting, and hanging out with her mates, unlike cousin Afua, whose deference to her relatives is boring in comparison. Soon Makeeda starts breaking even more family rules when she hooks up with super fit DJ Nelson, but then things get really complicated when she falls out with her best friend Bharti. Can Makeeda restore their friendship and find a balance between her cultural heritage and life in London?
