About the show

With his health deteriorating, a sick Anansi is determined to leave behind a legacy: Save the African spirit so that future generations may never forget their roots. A root that are beyond slavery. Anansi hosts a barbecue and sends invitations to his fellow gods (a feat that’s never performed before). But with laughter, celebration and pure differences amongst his fellow gods, their ideas on if the African spirit can be saved, is tested.Can he truly leave behind a legacy, or will he destroy his friendship he has with the gods and fail?
