How ‘Ewuro: The Musical,’ Rocked Lagos

It is no longer news that multiple award winning artiste- Tim Godfrey, presented the second edition of his hit play, ‘Ewuro: The Musical’’ recently, adding to the variety of action-packed shows that enlivened the action-filled month of December.

The play is an emotional stage presentation that captures the struggles of women in Nigeria, with a focus on discrimination and violence.

“Ewuro” is the Yoruba representation of the popular vegetable- bitter leaf.”  The play leads a movement that exists to address discrimination and the abuse women suffer on daily basis – from rape, to battery, molestation and widow’s funeral rites.

“Following last year’s edition, we decided to make this year’s edition bigger,” Godfrey said of the presentation.

Like last year’s edition, the audience this year had a good laugh, while the play went on and cheered at the popularity and authenticity of the stories.
