About Mansa Musa

With an empire worth $400B in it’s time, what did the richest black man in history do with his wealth? On his epic and moving journey from the Mali Empire to the city of Mecca, Mansa Musa endeavours to find a route towards hope and belonging by any means necessary. This brand new play is created by Yan Toby-Amisi, the writer of the Iris Summer Festival’s hit event – Blud. Yan Toby-Amisi is an actor and playwright from North London. A graduate of the Mountview BA Acting course (2016-2019), Yan has formed a solo theatre company by the name of vant-gard, and has been producing work across different venues in London. He is also a rapper under the moniker Talla, which also complements his work as an actor. Age Recommendation: 15+
