 In her words:

“This is a phenomenal development. It is gratifying to know that my production is the first ever musical from Nigeria to be showcased by the South African State Theatre. This is a validation that Nigerian theatre and musicals have come to stay. In line with the Federal Government’s desire to export non-oil products, theatre has emerged as one sector that is living up to that expectation. With over 60 people being taken to South Africa. This is indeed a new dawn.”  “Nigerians form a strong community in promoting Nigerian and African culture in notable cities around the globe. We believe that a historic and cultural production like Fela and the Kalakuta Queens will be received well in South Africa – considering Fela’s iconic status and the increasing interest in afrobeat internationally.”
