You probably remember him as ‘R.S aka Roll Sathe’ from the Hood Documentary Series but have you heard the wisdom of the sensational actor behind it.
In this video Kayode explains his journey and how he discovered his own courage to pursue his ambitions.
Whilst in his final year at Coventry University, Kayode decided to create a vine account and start making videos. After graduating from Coventry University in 2015, Kayode and his childhood friend (Tyrell Williams) bought a camera, developed a character from his vine account and decided to shoot a mockumentary.
With a grand budget of £3, they made two episodes of #HoodDocumentary, released them on YouTube, and shortly thereafter found themselves with over two million viewers. This attracted BBC Three, who commissioned #HoodDocumentary onto their platform (which is to date the highest viewed series on BBC 3 Online). Since then, Kayode has been busy appearing as a lead in the BBC’s remake of Are You Being Served? shooting White Gold (BBC 2), Crackanory (Dave) and becoming a BAFTABreakthroughBrit of 2016. Kayode is currently developing a few scripts that he can’t wait to share with those who have supported his journey so far!
