REVOLT TV’s first documentary, “Wale: I Am From” follows the DC-born rapper as he races against his own schedule in the US to meet his family in Nigeria for the first time in his life.
REVOLT TV Follows Wale To Africa In First Documentary
Wale’s own parents left the West African nation for the US in 1979, and he’s never had the opportunity to make the trip of self-discovery up to this point. REVOLT crews follow Wale for an emotional week while he makes travel preparations, connects with his roots, and gets to his day-to-day hustle.
Peep the trailer:
“Wale: I Am From” premieres on Monday, Jan. 20 at 10 p.m. on Revolt and will be immediately followed by a live Ustream with Wale at 11 p.m.
