Yorkshire Post

”A force in the arts world of Lagos, Nigeria, but a relatively new arrival to Bradford, Kafayat Adegoke is a Yoruba artist who heavily embeds her culture in her work. Having worked alongside two-time Grammy winner Lekan Babalola and the Sacred Funk Quartet, she has brought her unique energy to Bradford, staging her gender inequality show Orisha at the Bradford Fringe and worked with Theatre in the Mill on her one-woman show PER-SO-NA. She’s a thrilling addition to Bradford’s arts scene.”

A BRADFORD-based actor fears nothing will fully change on racial issues despite the Black Lives Matter movement, adding Britain is one of the most tolerant countries in the world. Kafayat Adegoke (pictured below), who has appeared in a host of TV dramas including the BBC’s Years and Years and working with 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen, says although she is glad to be alive when race relations are changing, she concedes that racism is inbuilt.
