Singapore comedian Haresh Tilani relishes ramen with a Singaporean-Japanese YouTuber, appreciates African cuisine with a Nigerian Footballer, and chows on cold crabs with an Indian-Korean DJ, all while talking about identity.
Over lunch with content creator Keiji Umehara, Haresh explores the perils of cancel culture and being an influencer in the current climate. They also discuss what it was like for someone of Japanese descent to learn about the Japanese occupation of Singapore during World War Two.
Visiting the only African café in town, Haresh and footballer Itimi Dickson delve into the stereotype of Nigerian scammers, while revisiting the prejudice that Itimi faced as a young footballer.
And finally, while having Korean Barbeque, Haresh grills Radio DJ Joakim Gomez his experience growing up mixed-heritage.
