    It was absolutely worth the journey made down south to see it. Went with friends for the Saturday evening show that week and everyone of us was greatly impressed. Very entertaining and the cast was amazingly talented – so young, so passionate about what they do. They were also really warm off-stage & gracious with everyone who came to speak to them afterwards.

    And can we just say all the dancers were giving us workout goals? Especially the babes with their super toned hamstrings and arms – damn! See pins! Whatever you girls are doing, please keep doing it, your bodies are truly on point! ??

    Finally, Rexxie boo! Call me, it’s the real Cassandra this time! ??

    They did a great job. This brings back good memories. Loved the lead actress, she was amazinggggg. In fact, the entire cast were impressive, but the lead actress and actor, Rexie, Mama ke, Bimbo Manuel – whom I saw in a new light, and Dolapo Oni were just fire! Well done BA-P.

      Was a fab production and pleasant surprise all round if i’m honest. Worth the money and would love to see it come back around. I know plenty of people who heard about it too late and couldn’t get ticket. Kudos to the sponsors.
