Peckham With The Flag Twins
Peckham With The Flag TwinsThe Flag Twins
Peckham-raised twins Kevin and Karlon Bonsu are multi-faceted creatives working across several disciplines.
The two British-Ghanaian twins DJ, as well as run Mission Statement Magazine and their own creative agency. They've modelled for the likes of Gucci and appeared in ITV's reality show Peckham's Finest. Community, representation and diversity are key values at the core of their work, and play a large role in their editorial content in their magazine. Aside from their work, the two brothers are known for their boisterous, warm personalities on screen and online.
They've certainly carved out a path for themselves in the creative industries, and are well-versed in the best spots in London's southeast district Peckham. The area has become a cultural hotspot, and here, the Flag Twins highlight where you can find the best Nigerian food and experience the creative scene.
“This is new on the Peckham scene. It's been open for about a year now. It feels mad safe and when you're out you obviously want to make sure that the vibes are correct, so it gives you that level of homeyness. Having a place where you can turn up, feel cosy, get mashed and have fun with your friends is a vibe!”More Info
“Being in the heart of Peckham you do really feel its pulse. You feel its energy every Friday when there's a queue stretching down to the police station. You have to recognise what's going on in the area, it's becoming fully gentrified. Prince of Peckham is changing the narrative for modern day British pubs and it's one of the last pubs that's recognised as a place for the community and for people that identify as ethnic minorities.”More Info
“Before you talk about The Flygerians you need to talk about the founders, twins Jess and Joel. They have a lot of Nigerian takes on classic dishes so for people that don't have an introduction to Nigerian food, its a bit of a more palatable way and a nice introduction into getting a taste of those Nigerian flavours.”More Info
