Lovers of the theater will have a swell time this December when Adesewa, a new musical play by the Thespian Family Theatre, founded by Mrs. Ayo Jaiyesinmi, will be on stage.  It was written and directed by Jaiyesinmi, with Floyd Igbo as the assistant director, choreography.

The story revolves around Adesewa, a darling soul bubbling with beauty and great artistic endowments.  She runs into upheavals but she is able to keep her dream alive in a way that will leave the audience inspired. According to Jaiyesinmi, the musical play is laced with drama, songs and dance.

She says, “The performance shows how Adesewa, the girl with a golden voice, keeps hope alive against all odds.  It also advocates domestic tourism while celebrating the best of Lagos.”

The musical features the best of Nigerian dramatists, including Tunji Sotimirin, Kemi Lala Akindoju, William Benson, Henry Arnold,  Efe Mayford-Orhorha, alongside several young talents that, Jaiyesinmi says, are wonderful in their performance.

Adesewa is being produced in collaboration with the MUSON Centre, which, according to Jaiyesinmi, is the beginning of a long-term partnership that will see Thespian and the MUSON jointly producing plays.

It will be on stage at the MUSON Centre between December 23 and 25.

Adesewa is coming at a time Thespian Theatre is marking its 15th year on stage. The theatre company, which is committed to making a positive change, has staged many plays with education and entertainment as their thrusts.

Among others, Thespian staged ItanThe Mad King of Ijudiya, The Five Maids of Fadaka, all written by Jaiyesinmi, and several others by other playwrights, including Ola Rotimi’s The Gods are not to Blame.

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Explodes Over #LekkiMassacre Of #EndSARS Protesters

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has condemned the attack on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.

It was reported earlier that soldiers of the Nigerian Army invaded a peaceful protest at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday evening.

Reacting to the attack on the peaceful protesters in Lagos in a tweet, Kanu, a director of Radio Biafra, said it is “shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim” President Muhammadu Buhari “using the Army to kill unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos” on a “Southern soil”.

The apparently furious IPOB leader wondered if “Southern Christian President” would ever “contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in Kano”, northern Nigeria.

Kanu tweeted: It’s shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim @NGRPresident using the Army to KILL unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos, a Southern soil? Would a Southern Christian President ever contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in KANO?”
