Confidence Vs Courage | Kayode Ewumi | TEDxPeckham


0   0

Kayode Ewumi 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! This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
