Yaw meets AY in Shalanga
Phyno, Olamide, Burna Boy, Korede Bello, Others On Parade
As part of activities to mark Nigeria’s Democracy Day, on air personality and theater artiste Steve Onu is back with his yearly show, Yaw Live On Stage. Now in its eight edition, the show will feature a stage play with Yaw and comedian AY tagged Shalanga.
Holding tomorrow at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, the event, which will start with the traditional red carpet reception at 6pm, will be spiced with musical performances by the likes of Olamide, Phyno, Burna Boy, Korede Bello and Solidstar. Other performances include sets from Reekado Banks, Naomi Mac, Koker, Lil Kesh, Adekunle Gold, CDQ, Splash, Immaculate, Tjan, Vintage Band, Reminisce and Ycee, while some notable comedians will be on hand to deliver jaw-breaking jokes.
Written and directed by Femi Branch, Shalanga, which will showcase the acting talents of Yaw and comedian AY, is a satirical take on the past and present of Nigeria in the last one year.
Speaking on the event, Yaw said, “a lot of people do not know that I come from a Theatre Arts background and as such, I have a very keen interest in the complete spectrum of entertainment. This is what I have tried to achieve over the past 7 editions of Yaw Live On stage, and I believe this year’s event is set to be the best ever. We will be incorporating a hilarious stage play, music, dance and comedy into a 360-degree entertainment experience for the audience. I want everyone to come out and have fun with me on Democracy Day; it is going to be spectacular,” he enthused.
Previous editions of the annual stage production have seen Yaw feature Funke Akindele, Julius Agwu, Jude Orhorha, Koffi, Owen Gee, MC Abbey and Okey Bakassi on stage.
