Post-Thanksgiving

It's been a long, busy weekend for some of us - I haven't had time to update. Therefore, I have missed out on a few events (which I will detail below) and put up what I meant to put up for Thanksgiving (or even before thanksgiving) - smart huh?

Free Book Reading: "Celebrated: Nigerian Women in Development" by Ayona Aguele-Trimnell @ Terra Kulture (Nov. 24th)


Anyway, happy holidays - I bet everyone is looking forward to Christmas? There are a few things going on everywhere between now and January 2008 and what would I be if I didn't share this info with you?


In no particular order:





Amplifyd Entertainment presents Banky W in London - Red November (Nov. 28th)


Naij..........A Documentary (Exclusive Screening at Warwick University, courtesy - Nigerian Society) (Nov. 28th). See trailer here







Jobs Wife - A Play (Lagos on Nov. 30th & Dec. 1st)


A lovely play by acclaimed playwright Philip Begho that imagines the plight of Job's wife during the time of her husband's affliction. It is packed with humour, emotion, and a compelling message.


Directed by the accomplished actress and director, Tosan Ugbeye, the play features the talents of highly notable actors such as Joke Silva, Ayo Lijadu and Sola Onayiga.

This is the first production in Nigeria of the Garden Theatre Company, my nascent theatre/production company, and will also be my introduction to the Nigerian stage as a producer and actress.

The play is also being held at the Coral Reef Hall in 10A, a superbly located multi-purpose hall and venue that caters to the various event needs of businesses and individuals.

I hope you can come not just to support the production, but to have what I hope will be a truly enjoyable evening with friends, colleagues, family and theatre enthusiasts.

Details are in the attached flyer. Please make a note of the date and venue! Friday November 30th and Saturday December 1st at 7.30pm @ No 10 Ikoya Ave, Off Macpherson, which is off Bourdillon/Queens Drive, Ikoyi.

Tickets: 3,500.






Joe Guy - Movie showing in London - see website for details.


And finally - The Experience Lagos (presented by House on the Rock)











Kirk Franklin, Israel Houghton, Donnie McClurkin, Lionel Petersen and a host of indigenous artistes who performed to an audience of over 60,000 people throughout the night. In the course of the event, prayers were offered up to God for our Nation Nigeria, led by eminent Christian leaders like Bishop David Oyedepo of The Winners Chapel, Bishop Mike Okonkwo of TREM and leaders of other frontline Christian organizations and churches. The Experience is a sacrifice of Praise and faith. God’s visitation was evidenced by the healings and restorations that took place in the lives of people who attended. The testimonies still abound and resound!

In 2007 things only get better! This year’s concert is scheduled to hold on Friday, the 30th of November 2007 through to Saturday 1st of December, from 8pm till dawn. The line up includes, Tye Tribbett, Kurt Carr, Israel Houghton, Don Moen, Lionel Peterson, Cece Winans, Pastor Marvin Winans and the Hon. Bishop T. D Jakes. Also performing will be indigenous talents such as the award winning, Asu Ekiye, the phenomenal Mike Aremu and UK based Singer and radio presenter Muyiwa Olarewaju.
