With the 2023 elections around the corner, One Good Man, a musical drama that tends to create necessary political awareness comes with auspicious fun and valuable information for spectators.

Directed by Patrick Otoro, who also is an actor, playwright and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Rivers of Water Production, One Good Man highlights the need for individuals to offer themselves up in service to the country.

The package highlights the need to render supports rather than criticism, which according to the producer, does not solve any problem.

Otoro who spoke to the media ahead of  his upcoming drama, further emphasized the qualities of a good leader, roles they are expected to play and the jobs that are to be done.

This is to make people make the right decision at elections and vote for the right candidate regardless of their political party.

The musical drama is neither moralistic nor political. It is entertainment packed featuring veteran and popular actors such  as Richard Mofe Damijo “RMD” in the lead role and Abuja based hip-hop dance group, The Elevators.

While exploring themes of politics, love and friendship, it also celebrates Nigerian cultures in songs, dances and festivities in other to entertain the audiences while also passing messages across.

“We don’t want to bore the audience with political talks or make them feel like it is a campaign. That is why in the story, you have all kinds of love stories, love songs, dance, music and culture”, the Director stated.

Speaking about the cost of putting up such production, Otoro noted that the musical drama with over 50 cast has gulped over N7 million and counting.

He noted that without any sponsors so far, the production is relying on sponsors and publicity efforts to attract more viewership.

Otoro also decried the lack of theaters in Abuja and called on the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), to intervane in the situation.
