Bimbo Manuel, Nollywood actor, and BBNaija season 3 finalist, Bambam, have been announced as some of the actors that will feature in ‘Moremi the Musical’.
The 90-minute musical, which is slated to hold from December 21 to January 2 in Terrakulture, Lagos, will be in memory of Moremi Ajasoro, an ancient Ile-Ife queen, who risked her life for her people.
Other artistes lined up for the show are Femi Branch, Deyemi Okanlawon, Ayo Ayoola and Kehinde Bankole.
Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ooni of Ife who was represented by Adebisi Layade, the alarao adaye of Ara Ife, said the event would rejuvenate cherished values, culture and tradition of an African woman, who through her unusual courage put herself forward in order to save her people.
“Through her quest for knowledge and sacrifice, she paid the price of injustice as a one-woman army for the love of her people,” the monarch said.
“It is the brave move of Queen Moremi that made the Yoruba people one of the first class groups in Nigeria today.
“The Moremi Project will boost the interest of women, whose potential are very high and always outstanding wherever they stepped into.
“We need to encourage women to bring out the potential in them. It’s time we start reminding our women that they have the power to change the world.
“In this world, women are very powerful. Without them, things will not move accordingly because they were created to complement the men.”
The monarch said that he started the current promotion with the history and personality of Queen Moremi because of the unique lessons the woman displayed in her lifetime.
