1) What city are you currently in and what do you love most about this city?
I currently live in London and the thing I love most about London is that it is so multicultural, you can meet every race of person here and eat food from all over the world. The city never sleeps and there is always something to do. It’s also great for networking too.
2) Your favourite hangout spot in your home town is?
I’m from Nottingham originally so I’d say my favourite hangout spot is probably my sister’s house! Nottingham’s changed quite a lot since I left 10 years ago.
3) A song that perfectly describes your country right now?
Stormzy’s Blinded by your Grace – big song.
4) What is on your music playlist currently?
4:44 album by Jay-Z. The man is a genius.
5) What are you reading?
Ask and it is Given – by Esther/Jerry Hicks.
6) What would you say is the biggest artistic impact Africa has had on the world?
It has to be through music. If you look at the influence musicians have had on the world they have been dominating for decades.
From the earliest beginnings of soul and Motown music right through to the impact of Afrobeats today, the impact is simply untouchable.
RIP to Aretha Franklin who’s just passed away as I’m writing this.
7) What is that one African dish you wish the entire world knew about?
Simple. Pounded yam with egusi soup.
8) What does your name mean?
Vauxhall (named after my grandfather’s car) Jermaine (means brother) Liburd (derives from the word liberty meaning freedom) Ayoola (means wealth).
9) If you had one super power what would it be and why?
Invisibility. You could literally do anything, go anywhere, and help anyone. It would be amazing.
10) If you weren’t a famous actor what would you be?
I’d still be involved in soccer as I used to play professionally. So I’d probably be a coach or a manager.
