Art Mogul & Producer Bolanle Austen Peters Officially Unveils Terra Kulture Arena – Lai Mohammed, Jimi Agbaje, Pat Utomi, Olu Jacobs, Joke Silva & More attend



Art mogul and top producer, Bolanle Austen Peters has launched the 400 seater, state of the art theatre dubbed the “Terra Kulture Arena”. The arena is the first privately owned technology equipped modern arts theatre in the whole of Nigeria and has already broken records with its two day launch on the 25th and 26th of March 2017 which hosted over 1,200 theatre enthusiasts.

Regarded as the all in one center for arts and culture aficionados, the space was built to serve a significant need in the theatre industry as only a few places in Nigeria provide the appropriate ambiance, for Nigerians and foreigners alike to experience Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage.

Guests were treated to drinks by Scavi and Ray winery and an exquisite array of canapés in the new ultra-modern lounge and the audience was thrilled with short clips from Saro the musical, Wakaa the musical and BAP productions’ newest feature, Fela and the Kalakuta queens which will show throughout December.

There was also a special rendition of the soundtrack of Wakaa by soul singer, Brymo.

In his address, Minister of Information and culture, Hon. Alhaji Lai Mohammed, commended Austen-Peters and pledged the support of the Federal Government to boost art and culture in the country.

Other special guests at the launch include; Hon. Steve Ayorinde (Commissioner of Information and Strategy), Prof. Demola Abass (S.A to the Governor on overseas affairs, Lagos State), Bolanle Adesola(MD Standard Chartered Bank), Waheed Olagunju (MD Bank of Industry), Tonye Cole (MD Sahara Energy), Nonny Ugbonna (Executive Secretary MTN Foundation) Tony Attah (MD SNEPCO), Oscar Onyeama (MD Stock Exchange), Bayo Ojulari (MD Shell), Pastor and Pastor Mrs Paul Adefarasin, Pastor and Pastor Mrs Tony Rapu, Professor and Mrs Pat Utomi, Erelu Abiola Dosunmu, Mr and Mrs Jimi Agbaje, Mr and Mrs Tunde Folawiyo, Mr and Mrs Olawale Edun, Mr and Mrs Segun Awolowo and Maiden Ibru.

    Congrats to Mrs Bolanle Austen Peters (née Afe Babalola). Though a lawyer, her contributions to the growth of Nigerian modern arts is highly commendable. A real labour of love. Wish her great success.

      Aproko, we see what you did there. Who asked you for details of her family? You just can’t accept that she did this all by herself? You had to bring up her former surname? Please do not take away her hard work from her. Please.

    Awesome, now we have more venues for stage play productions, we can get more people into the sector, more jobs! If our government can only see the revenue that can be generated from the arts and invest! Hmmmm…

    Even if this is sponsored content, launching a hall with no pictures of the hall and its facilities and equipment. Just continuously pushing this glorification of celebrity and material things. No mention anywhere of the address. Once applied as editor for this blog, out of passion even though I was vastly overqualified, Don’t know who they hired at the end but the amount of grammatical errors and shoddy reporting that would take just a little effort to set right tells me some “cousin” probably was hired. You might say sour grapes but its not. This blog should be in a much better state. Your editor needs to do better.

    We were in ISI together, though she was a couple of years my senior. First, she looks younger than me (chai I have suffered in this land of America) even though she is older than me. Second, I cannot believe how far she has been able to take the culture of art/arts! Funny thing is in ISI, I never saw her as a person with such flare for the arts, however, I do remember her being very brilliant and she did take her studies seriously, even though she was what we called “funky/happening” back in the day. Good for her! I consider her very well accomplished. I didn’t discover until late last year that her father is “the” Afe-Babalola! She never used the Afe part of her last name in school.
