Hit Stage Musicals WAKAA & KAKADU rocked the Holiday Season with support from the MTN Foundation



Wakaa The Musical on Stage

Wakaa The Musical on Stage

Two notable stage plays sponsored by MTN Foundation as part of its efforts in advancing theatre and performing arts in Nigeria, Kakadu and Wakaa the musical from the stables of Playhouse Initiative and Bolanle Austen-Peters Production respectively were among the very few entertainment concerts that closed out 2015 on a good note.

The two plays which commenced December 28 and ended January 3, 2016 had a throng of musical drama enthusiasts and a host of celebrities including Prof. Wole Soyinka, two of the beneficiaries of the MTNF-sponsored MUSON Scholar Programme, Ajo Ajayi & Lawal Seyi who were part of the cast and crew for the plays dropped by Muson Centre to feed their eyes and crack their ribs. And the plays left them with no disappointment.

Drop a comment here if you enjoyed any of these plays.

    I enjoyed Wakàà, so much so I did a review While I am yet to review Kakadu it was my 2nd time watching it and I loved it as much! Project fame Ben can do no wrong in my eyes.

    I saw Wakaa…and it was simply amazing. I can’t fault it. The story-line, the acting, the singing, the lighting, the use of humour….I could go on! I’ve already begun selling the idea of seeing it next time to my folks and I’ll definitely see this again. I celebrate Bolanle Austen-Peters…Excellence is not a caucasian trait, like many believe.

    I Loved Wakaa, watched Kakadu last year so I didn’t bother watching it this time around. Please how can people who are interested in the arts find out about auditions for stage plays like this.

    Seems anything Bolanle Austen-Peters touches turns to gold. First Saro, now Wakaa. I loved Wakaa so much. The way they used the songs was amazinggggg. The “Beast of no Nation”, “won kere si number wa”..infact just too many to mention. I hope they do another show for Easter. I’m yet to see Kakadu, hopefully next time its showing.

    Wakaa was nothing short of amazing, so much so that I went to see it twice! Kike Johnson’s character, Rex’s character, the Governor’s character, Ozzy Agu, you lot were on fire! And I see you Sisiano, you great dancer, you! 😉

    Moving back to Naija has been fulfilling in the “what-to-do-aside-from-going-to-Quilox” department. 5 stars to Bolanle Austen Peters and her team.

    Hey, did anyone see “Hear Word” also at the MUSON? Well THAT was a beautiful thought provoking one!

      I saw “hear word”, it was really Good. Wakaa was amazeballs!!. Kakadu I had mixed feelings about.. Damn too long and they spoke too much.

      *whispering from the sidelines* Nne, what is Quilox, please? Share biko, “should in case” I’ve been neglecting certain forms of entertainment in the ‘Deen…

      Ran into a certain Naija actress over the festive period and my major rant to her was how we in-the-abroad are missing out on the seemingly amazing stage shows they put on in Lagos. She responded by sharing the unfortunate truth of many producers not having the funds to do more than a week’s run of their shows right there in Lagos so touring around Naija is money that’ll be hard to source, much less touring in London. I understood but it’s still so frustrating to miss out on the good Nigerian live productions. ??

      And this our neighbourhood theatre here sef can like to be showing some ballet tinz I ain’t interested in… *deep sigh*
