The Birth of Theatre in Colonial Lagos.

By 1886, the population of Lagos had risen from 25,000 in 1861 to 38,000 and with it, came rise in the need for recreational facilities in Lagos. In direct response to this need, the top cream of the Lagos elite- Bishop Ajayi Crowther, J.A Otunba-Payne, Robert Campbell, Charles Foresythe, J.P.L Davies and a host of others go together on October 24, 1866 and opened “The Academy” as it was called “as a social and cultural centre for public enlightenment, dedicated to the promotion of arts, science and culture”
Between 1866 and 1910, several groups after the fashion of “The Academy” were founded, dedicated in one way or the other to the promotion of culture and arts. Among the most successful were the Philharmonic Society which was founded by Otunba-Payne in 1873, the Lagos Grammar School Entertainment Society (1872), the Rising Entertainment Society, the Orphean Society, founded by J.Otunba-Payne, the People’s Union (1904), the Lagos Glee Singers(1910),the United Native Progressive Society and the Brazilian Dramatic Company under the management of P.Z.Da Siliva.
There was also the Annual Coker Concerts, organized by Robert A. Coker, the “Mozart of West Africa” which became extremely popular in entertainment circles in “ Victorian Lagos”
Practically, all these groups organized shows of their own. Quite predictably ,the programmme format and contents of these performance were based on those of the English music halls that were prominent in England in the late 1860’s and the early 1870’s--- comic songs, love songs, duets. Solos, glees and recitations, usually excerpts from plays, novels ,and comic sketches. Somehow, music tended to dominate in these performances.

Ewer made of ivory, iron. The jug is originally from the Kingdom of Owo but the artistic influence of the old Benin Kingdom on the arts and craft of that time can’t be over ruled. The skill of Owo’s ivory carvers was also appreciated at the court of Benin. During the seventeenth and
eighteenth centuries, Benin’s rulers increasingly utilized insignia made from ivory, and imported Owo’s art objects and recruited its artisans for their own royal workshops. The old Owo kingdom then was a vassal of the great Benin Kingdom. #owo #beninkingdom #artsandcraftstime #ivory #jug #heritage #culture #ASIRIMagazine #history #photography #iron #edoculture #trades #carving #traditional #culturalheritage #carver

"As Herbert Seelas Macaulay prepared to enter the Lagos gaol in 1913 he was to become one of His Majesty's prisoners, though understandably not a proud one,for the next two years serving a term for criminally converting estate Money of 350 pounds to his personal use. He should have known better since he was already a distinguished ex-government surveyor and a rising thorn in the side of the British government. But the exacting toll of looking after a large extended family alone from his own income might have gotten the better of him. The government just chose not to look the other way because it was Macaulay".
