We all love the story of Olori Moremi Ajasoro, the brave woman who fought all odds to safeguard and free her people, our number one Yoruba feminist! And we were all held spell-bound by the beautiful portrayal of the heroic story and achievement of the Queen by the House of Oduduwa Foundation, Rejevenee, and Bolanle Austen-Peters Produced show, Queen Moremi The Musical. We enjoyed the soul pleasing combination of strong musical prowess, awesome costumes, and a gripping well-retold story, what a fine blend! Well now, the story is about to get more interesting in the Easter show of the “Return of The Legend- Queen Moremi The Musical”. Remember when we shared that the ambassador to the Queen Moremi Ajasoro Initiative and Executive Director of the Queen Moremi “‘The Musical’, Princess Ronke Ademiluyi said that: “…being a queen was never only to be behind the scenes, but also getting in the forefront of solving mystery battles which is pretty remarkable and we are not going to shy away from that”. This new show would also not shy away from retelling this mind-blowing story of the Queen, neither would it fail to deliver amazing notes for the musical. The Return of the Legend also sees the return of its power cast which includes: Award-winning Omotola Jalade, Bamike Olawunmi (Bambam of Big Brother Nigeria), veteran Nollywood stars Kunle Afolayan, Femi Branch, Lala Akindoju, Deyemi Okanlawon, and Kehinde Bankole. The stage show is to kick off from thein from the 18th of April 2019 to the 5th of May 2019 at the infamous Terra Kulture Arena in Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi is in full support of the new show as he rallies royalties and community leaders for the April 22nd show of the musical. The Moremi of Yorubaland, Mrs. Olufunso Amosun also shared that: “We are dedicated to telling our story and the story of Queen Moremi is about ultimate girl power, a woman who dedicated her life to ensure that her hometown of Ile Ife was safe from invaders. She was an epitome of great female leadership, as great leaders would always put the love of their people before themselves. That’s why we have requested the phenomenal Bolanle Austen-Peters to give us an outstanding show this Easter.”
