Event Details

(Written/directed by Jide Kosoko)

A historical play centered around events in Lagos of the 18th cen-tury; it reflects on the legendary feud between King Kosoko and King Akintoye. Prince Kosoko is the rightful heir to the Lagos throne. But due to the feud between him and Eletu Odibo (the Prime Minister), his Nephew Akintoye is made king on the pretense that Prince Kosoko could not be located when Oba Oluwole died. King Akitoye realising who Kosoko is persuades his people to search for him, so as to make him return to Lagos. It parades popular actors in the Yoruba Theatre and film sector.
