This November we are back! Book your tickets ahead o. 9-11th November at @terrakulture

Happy Birthday @sundayomobolanle aka Pappy Luwe. I was looking forward to meeting you on set of the film 'Year 2000' by @lancelotimasuen back then in 1997. I saw a man nicely dressed walk past me quietly and sat just minding his business. I remember asking "where is pappy Luwe"? I was shocked when I was told you were the same person that walked past me very unassumingly. Then it was time to shoot and you got into your costume,did your makeup...you 'transformed' totally. There is a clear distinction between Sunday Omobolanle and Pappy Luwe.
I haven't seen or spoken to you after that time but that encounter taught me the 'act of becoming and definition' as an actor.
You are highly favored and blessed. Many fruitful years ahead sir.

My my when I landed the role of Mrs Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti in the play for the Muson festival in 2016, I almost shitted myself out of both trepidation and super-excitement. Me! Live the life of an Amazon! I read, researched and even stalked aunty @yeniakuti just to get as much information as possible that would enable me BE the character. Such a great honor..still basking in it. Those cheek-bones though, they were created for a time like this, gbagbe! #mrsfunmilayoransomekutiandfamily

Today I remember Mrs Florence,she has been homeless for at least 5years that I know. Come rain come shine she sleeps at the #tbs. Theatre introduced us. This day when I visited her, she has been Ill for a week and a half and had no food or money. After She got food and drugs, we chatted for about an hour before I left. (September 2017) She called me 'Ireti', "ENI ti an reti ti de" and she whispered "I love you". As I walked away, I began to sing:

Ma t'oju mi
Jehovah nla
Ero l'aye osi yi
Emi ko lokun
Iwo Ni
F'owo agbara di mi mu
Ounje orun ounje orun
Ma bo mi titi Laila.
Si ilekun isun ogo Ni
Orisun imarale
JE ki imole re orun
Se Amona mi jale
Olugbala Olugbala
S'agbara at'asa mi

#tbt reciting the #southafrica national anthem and trying so hard not to bite my tongue @pacebloem #vrystaatkunstefees @pawstudiosnigeria thank you @gogoglen for recording.

Inspired by @dollinholt Dollin Holt's poem with the same title.
EDIRINVERERE
Sound it high and low
that patience, patience, is a virtue

that everything comes at its own time.
This seed-filled stomach
Will birth

and when it does

The world will applaud
It's long over-due delivery

and as these seeds grow

They shall speak of edirinverere
that patience, patience, is a virtue

that everything comes at its own time.

Ever reach a point where you’re so concerned about something that when you come before God, all you can do is sigh? Sometimes when we’re praying about a certain need, we feel it so deeply that we can’t express ourselves in words.
There are times when you’re unable to articulate a single word in prayer; nevertheless you’re making an important connection. At that point the Holy Spirit enters the picture and identifies with us. But He does more than just feel for us, He takes our pain and deepest longings and interprets them to God. "the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will"
Word For Today.

Well...I spent my Saturday evening listening to children survivor's of cancer of all kinds, put together by @phinnystalentstudiokids .and yes they are Nigerian children. With 2 non functional radiography machines in Lagos, one of the children still undergoing chemotherapy have to travel to Abuja for treatment. It's about N300,000 a session for children,the parents are hoping he won't be classed as an adult because that will be double the charge, when they can barely afford the current charges.
#childrenlivingwithcancerfoundation @clwcf has been a source of remarkable support and strength to a lot of these children. We need to join this cause.
Tomorrow Sunday 16th of September there will be another opportunity to see the play and hear the children speak. It's free. Please come. You will be better for it. @ambo_2019 thank you for supporting this project Even financially. @steveayorinde commissioner for Tourism,arts and culture Lagos State you deserve a million accolades for your never ending support for the arts. #lagosstatetransport #lagosstatehealthcommision
