*P SQUARE: LONDON 2010*
Join director Mohamed Osman-Kamara and journalist Ade Deramy to view their
latest documentary about Nigerian R&B band *P Square* during their trip to
the UK to perform. Among the biggest groups to come out of Africa today, P
Square are part of a new generation of African musicians who have
established themselves on the world stage through touring sell-out concerts
in football stadia across the continent.

In 2007, they released their best-selling album so far,* Game Over* which
sold 8 million copies worldwide. The screening is followed by a discussion,
led by Juma Bah of Community Action Southwark, examining the role of groups
like P Square in establishing a new kind of mass audience for
African-produced music.
