Johnny Just Come - Africans in the UK

The BBC's Focus on Africa programme has commissioned three poets from the African diaspora in the UK to write exclusive poetry on the theme of migration.

Here, Yomi Sode, a Nigerian-born writer based in London, explores what it means to be a Nigerian living in the UK - the feeling of being "other" despite being African becoming cool.

His poem is called Johnny Just Come
