, I MADE IT! June 6th on HBO Naija made me🇳🇬America raised me🇺🇸. So it was only right that for my first @hbo comedy special, I PUT ON for both of my homes. What a moment it was to bring cameras all the way to Lagos AND deep in the village to get a sneak peak into the family that birth my funny. And then finally bringing it full circle to the DMV and taping in front two sold-out crowds at the Howard Theater.

Interspersed with vibrant, personal footage shot in Nigeria, Yvonne’s native home, during a milestone trip in early January, Yvonne Orji’s Momma, I Made It! takes an intimate, hilarious look at what being Nigerian-American means to Yvonne.
From her international haggling addiction and having her phone tapped by her parents as a kid, to the fine line between cursing people out and putting curses on them.
Written by Orji, Chris Robinson is the director and it is executive produced by Michelle Caputo and Shannon Hartman. Momma, I Made It! drops on June 6.
We can’t wait for this special to drop already and we know you can’t too.
