This play is uniquely designed to marry the intrigues and rich cultural interplay of forces that made 14th century Lagos the melting pot of modern day Nigeria. This second coming expertly marry the modern day socio-economic development of modern-day Lagos with the vestiges of traditional Lagos. It seeks to highlight the progress achieved so far as we push towards creating a global city with some of the best infrastructural development in a third world city with the 5th largest economy in the world while not losing its ancient field interspersing the story of the powerful Akitoye and Kosoko ruling families as they struggle for continued dominance.

His Excellency Akinwunmi Ambode is a publicly acclaimed supporter of the Arts and was very instrumental to the staging of the debut show last May.
