Director Stewart Kyasimire gets rare behind-the-scenes access to Scottish social media sensation Bachala Mbunzama – aka Bash the Entertainer. He is loved by his three million followers and has a staggering tally of over three billion combined video views.
This film takes you into his world and shows his fans what life is like behind the smile. When Bash isn’t making the world laugh with videos like his famous Rhianna reaction video, or TikTok hit CEO of Copying Sounds, Bash gives us an exclusive insight into how he uses comedy to fight racism and his battles with mental health.
The film also explores the story of how Bash came to Glasgow from the Democratic Republic of Congo, seeking asylum as a refugee with his mother and siblings. He talks about experiencing his first racist encounter in a Glasgow primary school and fitting in to life in Scotland.
Bash would like to share his story to inspire anyone who has faced adversity in their lives, and let them know that you don’t have to let negativity get in the way of your dreams.
