Nigerian author Akwaeke Emezi was spotted hanging out with Arséma Thomas, the actress who plays young Lady Agatha Danbury in Netflix’s blockbuster period drama Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story (2023).

Emezi had previously held a book signing at London’s Daily Paper’s flagship store. They then met up with Thomas to see the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical A Strange Loop at the Barbican Theatre. The show follows Usher, a Black queer man writing a musical about a Black queer man writing a musical.

Emezi captioned the post: “perfect last night in london—seeing the utterly magnificent @strangeloopldn with this angel @arsemathomas”.

We love to see friendships based on sharing love for art and life as artists. Emezi recently turned to rapping. They have released two singles so far. Listen here and here.
