Omobola Johnson, Bola Adesola, Rita Dominic, Tunde Kelani, Olu Jacobs, Osas Ighodaro, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, others step out for #TheWives

by Jewel Stephen

The best of Nigerian society came out to watch what some are calling the theatre production of the year, ‘The Wives’. The command performance which held on Saturday, 11 October at the Agip Recital Hall of Muson Centre, Onikan Lagos wrapped up a 3-day festival of brilliant stagecraft.

Guests at the performance included Minister for Communication Technology Omobola Johnson, Chief Executive of Standard Chartered Bank Bola Adesola, Chief Executive of WIMBIMZ, Osayi Alile, Rita Dominic, Olu Jacobs, Patrick Doyle, Tunde Kelani, Aduke Gomez, Wana Udobang, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Noble Igwe, football legend Emmanuel Babayaro, Osas Ighodaro, Shade Ladipo, Subomi Plumptre, Mo Cheddah, amongst others.

The play, written by Professor Ahmed Yerima was brought to life by iconic actors including Joke Silva, Jide Kosoko, Iretiola Doyle, Kate Henshaw and Lala Akindoju, there were guest appearances by Toyin Oshinaike, and Media Entrepreneur, Adebola Williams who makes a return to the stage after 14 years.

“It literally takes the soul to pull of a stage play in this day and time,” said Lala Akindoju, producer of the play. “But those who are passionate about keeping the soul of the culture alive understand why it is important to anchor major productions like ‘The Wives’. The turnout – a full house everyday – makes it all totally worth it. I thank MTN and all other partners for, forgive the pun, making this happen.”

The audience also enjoyed a command performance by multi-talented singer, songwriter and music producer Cobhams Asuquo. The show was anchored by award winning actor, OC Ukeje. The first two days has also enjoyed brilliant musical performances from Femi Leye and Aramide.

“Everyone is incredibly proud of Lala for what she has achieved here with ‘The Wives'; it continues a trend that this incredible young woman has made a habit, pushing trends with big passion projects including the V Monologues and Open Mic Theatre,” said Adebola Williams who played the lawyer around whom the play’s twist was built. “On a personal level, it was gratifying to come back to the stage after 14 long years and to join an excellent cast of Nigeria’s best. Acting has always been my first love – and I was glad to see each performance get a resounding applause and the finale, a standing ovation.”

The Wives was produced by The Make it Happen Productions and supported by Africa Magic, BellaNaija, YNaija, 360nobs, Life House, Red Communications and Terra Kulture.

rocked it best

Let’s put your fashion radar to work this Thursday morning!

It’s a Fashion Face Off between Model/TV Presenters Eku Edewor, Zainab Balogun & Nollywood actress Rita Dominic.

All three ladies rocked the thigh slit “Cassandra” dress from Nigerian fashion label “Clan” – a dress that features a V neckline, peplum detail and a thigh high slit.

Eku Edewor rocked the dress first in March 2014 for the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards. Her glam gown with peplum detail dress was champagne coloured, she teamed it with gold heels and accessorized with gold jewellery.

Presenter Zainab Balogun modelled both the black and chamoagne version of the dress in the label’s recent look book.

Rita Dominic was spotted in a black version of the dress a few days ago on August 4th for the Heritage event which went down at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, Washington DC.

The event was attended by President GEJ, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Flavour, Don Jazzy and others.
