Taulupe talks to BBC Sport about getting the name on his jersey corrected here and it was also reported here. More on the couple who named their baby after him in this article.

31/52 Vanuatu – Jimmy Joseph Nakou

Jimmy Joseph Nakou,Yapa Nekiwris,Posen Iarpita Napu,Albi Nangia,Joel Numapen The 2007 show ‘Meet the Natives’ brought five men, including Jimmy Joseph, from Vanuatu to learn about the native culture of… England. But of course, what the show really teaches us is about their culture. And their religion! Villagers on Tanna believe that the son of god is Prince Philip. For more on that, check the ‘Prince Philip Movement’ Wikipedia entry. Meet the Natives was directed by Gavin Searle and you can watch it for free (within the UK) on Channel 4’s Catch Up Hub. “Intriguing documentary that turns traditional anthropology on its head. Five tribesmen from a South Pacific island travel 10,000 miles to observe the natives of a strange and exotic land – Britain.”

28/52 Grenada – Evena Morris

Evana Morris shares her story of coming to England from Grenada as part of Evewright’s Caribbean Takeaway Takeover. “The Caribbean takeaway is an important cultural meeting place in the Caribbean community. A home from home, the kitchen is where meals are prepared, but also where stories are exchanged and shared. Going back to African roots, cooking and the Dutch pot or cooking pot was the central place for the family activity. The takeaway has just as much cultural importance as the barbershop and the hairdressing salon for black communities living and working in the UK.For one month, the Breathing Space Café at the Migration Museum will be taken over, repurposed and transformed into an art installation featuring limited-edition photo etchings of 12 Windrush generation elders produced by EVEWRIGHT, along with audio interviews and sound recordings of these Windrush Pioneers compiled by his team at Evewright Arts Foundation (EAF).”Migration Museum Visit the exhibition at:Migratio...
