In this hilarious and utterly relatable exploration of intergenerational differences, Tobi, an aspiring musician in London is primed and ready to drop out of university following a music video of his which just went viral. The problem is relaying this piece of potentially life altering information to his very Nigerian mother—a hard-working and God-fearing woman. Using snappy edits and recreations, Drop Out reconstructs the many ways in which this encounter could go wrong.

The Baobab Award is long listed in partnership with the National Film & Television School’s MA in Film Studies, Programming & Curation, with the objective of encouraging an appreciation and knowledge of African cinema in the next generation of film programmers.
