In case you weren’t aware, “CP time” isn’t solely an African American thing. It’s an African diaspora “phenomenon,” and it will be at the center of an upcoming new Nigerian comedy feature, aptly titled African Time.
It seems to have become a part of African culture in that most African events tend begin a few hours after the specified start time. This becomes frustrating to those Africans that like to be punctual. Ironically, many Africans that are late to various social events are seldom late to work and other self-benefiting engagements. This story humorously uses different events to explore the habit of late coming among Africans. While addressing some of the challenges that several Africans face with being on time, the story also unveils how to combat the infamous African Time.
