Anita’s got style, energy and attitude. Her ambition is to become the local dancehall diva, but before she can triumph with her ‘rude girl’ friends deejaying her lyrics on stage, she has to prove herself – and she has some growing up to do along the way. It’s a rough road. Bringing up two children alone on a tough housing estate is no easy matter; neither are her relationships with her mother, sister and the children’s father, Byron, a singer with his own ambitions.

Babymother is discussed in Sonic Register: British black womxn and onscreen performativity (a recorded conversation).
