After the success of the hit musicals Saro, Wakaa and the recently concluded Fela and the Kalakuta Queens, theatre maven Bolanle Austen-Peters in collaboration with the House of Oduduwa have announced the adaptation of popular Yoruba heroine Queen Moremi into a stage musical.

Scheduled to run through from December 21, 2018 to January 2, 2019, the musical will focus on Moremi the daughter of the Princess of Olunbe of Offa and one of Ife’s bravest hunters, Lukugba. Set in the early days of the Yoruba kingdom, Queen Moremi tells a story of love, sacrifice and heroism from one of Nigeria’s most iconic female characters.
With 17 shows over an 11 day period, the Bolanle Austen-Peters’ directed play will utilize brand new original music and rich costumes to celebrate the rich Yoruba heritage by bringing this story and era to life. It will relieve the tale of a woman who sacrificed everything for her people of Ile-Ife, the cradle of Yoruba culture and played a pivotal role in the liberation of the Yoruba community.

Speaking on the project, Bolanle Austen Peters said, “The purpose of this project is to keep our identities, values, history and culture alive, especially amongst youths, upcoming generation, starting from Nigeria to the diaspora. The critical aspect of the story is the music that portrays contemporary culture and tradition of our people. Nigeria has enough history to generate content without necessarily importing foreign stories; and so, people believe in the quality and content of the Nigerian story”.

Led by AMVCA winning actress Kehinde Bankole who takes on the eponymous role, the cast will also feature Deyemi Okanlawon (Gidi Up), veterans Bimbo Manuel (Tinsel) and Femi Branch. It will also serve as the stage debut of Big Brother Nigeria contestant Oluwabamike “BamBam” Olawunmi.

Theatre lovers have been assured of a thrilling adventurous tale that stays true to its source material, and continues in the footsteps of other Terra Kulture productions in telling gripping Nigerian stories, that promote the diverse culture of the nation.
