Following the success of ‘Fela and the Kalakuta Queens’ in Lagos, Abuja, Cairo and Pretoria, Bolanle Austen-Peters Productions has announced the return of a sequel – ‘Fela’s Republic and the Kalakuta Queens’ to Terra Kulture this December.
While ‘Fela and the Kalakuta Queens’ was majorly an exploration of the life of FelaKuti and his wives, Fela’s Republic and the Kalakuta Queens has infused the celebration of the unapologetic and prophetic messages enshrined in his music into the original storyline.
Having raised the bar with the local and international success of Saaro the Musical, Wakaa the musical, Queen Moremi the Musical, and others, Bolanle Austen-Peters Productions is set to thrill audiences with this new musical play at the Terra Arena, Victoria Island Lagos from the 14th of December, 2019 to January 2020.
According to Bolanle Austen-Peters, “The play which first opened in Lagos in 2017 has now been shown in different countries across the continent. However, we’ve brought it back to Lagos because there has been a lot of clamor for that to be done. The sequel is just as exciting and the major twist to it is that the new play is a fusion of the Kalakuta Queens and Fela’s social messages.”
Fela’s Republic and the Kalakuta Queens is proudly supported by Ecobank, Amstel Malta, MTN, Dormanlong, the Estate of FelaAnikulapoKuti, Africa Magic, Red Media Africa, Beat FM amongst others.
