Kakadu: [@kakadumusical] Theatre Meets Fashion

Friday, May 09, 2014Omobaswagz H



Nigeria’s first stage musical premiered in May 2013. It has been a beautiful journey of song, dance, drama and timeless fashion ever since. At the behest of the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN, Kakadu returned to the MUSON in December after a successful run at the Calabar Festival, and then on to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland as Nigeria’s export to the world. Kakadu’s performance is ever stellar, thus earning them a FESTINA Award by NANTAP (National of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners). Kakadu showcased at the Africa Magic Veiwership Choice Awards, and is billed to tour the world.


‘‘I guess Kakadu the Musical took everyone by surprise. It certainly took me by surprise, but what a pleasant one! It was a first class performance with many iconic images from the past. It brought together the diverse elements that made up the Lagos of the sixties and seventies; the Lagos that was the heart and soul of the young nation. A city full of promise and expectations, but always unpredictable”. - Governor Raji Fashola, SAN.


’’ A stellar piece of performance art, whose unique narrative is wholly compelling, KAKADU: THE MUSICAL lights the way for the future of African theatre, and illustrated this most profoundly on March 8 when it opened the highly anticipated 2014 AFRICAMAGIC VIEWERS’ CHOICE AWARDS at the Eko Exhibition Centre in Lagos. The AMVCAs is screened live to television audiences in over 50 countries across the continent, and on this night there was no better ensemble than KAKADU to speak to the powerful appeal and enduring promise of the creative arts industry in Africa. From its impressive vocal talent to its flowing choreography, from its polished band to its clever use of props, design and lighting, KAKADU was energetic, entertaining and in every way, exceptional”.
