Loud Whispers: AliBaba Explodes At The Muson as FCMB Lends Support

The Muson will tomorrow witness the unveiling of Alibaba, prominent Comedian as a serious thespian. Alibaba the undisputed father of Nigerian Comedy will push the boundaries in his enviable career by taking up the lead role in Loud Whispers the much anticipated stage adaptation of the Book written by Investment Banker, Joseph Edgar.

The play, according to Olisa Adibua, who doubles as its Producer has been in the making for the past two years after prompting from the highly respected Bolanle Austen Peters of Tera Kulture. The Book which is a compilation of a series of articles written by Edgar in his weekly column and published by Thisday Newspaper takes a lighthearted look at Nigeria and Nigerians, throwing barbs laced with humorous anecdotes while delivering acerbic punch lines to an increasingly satiated reading public.

“The play sees Ali deliver some of the 'sweetest' performances seen on a Nigerian Stage with his mesmerizing commentary on happenings within the Nigerian socio political arena, taking the audience through the ever present issues of fuel scarcity, political hobnobbing, and insecurity within the country and finally nestling with the seemingly intractable issue of the Chibok girls. Laced with spicy song and dance routines, the 40 man cast and crew are set to storm the stage with very powerful but lithe performances putting on display the very best of Nigerian craftsmanship, paying homage to our varied culture while still throwing up our challenges as a people and subsuming itself within the cacophony of multiple characterization in obedience to the traditions of Nigerian theatre.”, says veteran Director, William Benson.

FCMB has joined the list of important sponsors as anticipation builds. The play which will unfold in three shows on the 1st of May at the Iconic Agip Recital Hall of the Muson is co-sponsored by Zenith Bank, The Bank Of Industry, AIICO, Rain Oil, AXA Mansard and Wellness HMO. It is also supported by UBA Plc and Svengali.

This work is Executive Produced by Joseph Edgar and Co-Produced by versatile entertainment Impresario, Olisa Adibua, Shina Peller of Quilox and Mofoluwake Edgar and packaged by Katunga Media, a leading African Marketing Communication agency.
