This year, history is about to repeat itself as Wakaa! the Musical, a Bolanle-Austen Peters production is set to hit the stage from December 30th through to January 3rd at MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos.
Boasting a 60-man cast and crew, Wakaa! The Musical is a play about the trials, successes and experiences of six young graduates with varied backgrounds.
The story reveals the struggles and challenges young people face in present-day Nigeria and abroad and is a strong satire on Nigerian politics.
