Londoner Idris Elba has just made his film directorial debut with Yardie. But he could’t have done it without Adrian’s guest, Dotun Adebayo. Why? Because Dotun, a Nigerian Londoner, was behind the publication of the book Yardie by Victor Headley in 1992.
In this excerpt from a longer interview with Dotun to come soon, Adrian teases out the story behind the story, as the two chat outside Euston station. Subscribe to hear the full interview soon!
