Joivan Wade plays Derrick in upcoming feature film The Weekend written and directed by British comedian, Kojo.
The film follows Derrick, Tyrone & Malcolm, three college students living in East London who have spent their whole college experience being non-existent. It’s the last day of college before they finally move into the real world. They come across some money which was left in an alleyway by some thugs and decide to spend THE WEEKEND like they never have before. They are very outlandish with their spending of the money which alerts the thugs on the whereabouts of their money. The thugs catch up with the boys and give them a deadline of Sunday midnight to return the money they have spent or risk even more problems. The boys do a massive carwash & sell all of their purchased items in order to make the money back. But is that enough or will there be more twist and turns?Overview
