Friday night drinks? Meet me at...

Neighbourhood Bar in Kingsland.

Where I'll be wearing my new: Top hat.

And this weekend I'm planning on: Being in A Thousand Hills at the Herald Theatre.


But first I'll need to refuel at my favourite cafe: The Fridge cafe in Kingsland, the best coffee in town.

Saturday evening, if my dreams came true there would be a gig by: Zoh Zoh at Shooters after performing A Thousand Hills.

But if there's nothing else doing I'll probably just: Be working and rehearsing with the band; I'm very passionate about my music.

On my stereo/headphones right now is: Fela Kuti.

The books I can't put down are: Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

The TV show I take the phone off the hook for: Two and a Half Men.

The movie I've been dying to see: Fela Kuti Live.

A non-cooking Monday night means takeaways from: Nandos.

Or a splash-out Wednesday night restaurant would be: Monsoon Poon Thai Restaurant in town.

Yaw Boateng an accomplished performer originally from Ghana, who leads Auckland musical groups Zoh Zoh and GAHU. He will be appearing in A Thousand Hills - a play based on the true life experiences of Francois Byamana, who survived the Rwandan genocide of 1994 - which is on at the Herald Theatre until October 30.
