AWO the Musical: The Man, His Jewel and...

Awo vividly portrays the life and legacy of the legendary African Statesman, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, a politician, lawyer, and philosopher. Through masterful dialogue and stunning set designs, the play navigates through Awolowo’s remarkable journey, from his political endeavors and triumphs to the tumultuous period of post-independence Nigeria and the Civil War, culminating in the dawn of the Second Republic in the early 1970s.

Furthermore, Awo poignantly highlights the pivotal role of his wife, the illustrious Chief Mrs. HID Awolowo, who stood as a steadfast pillar behind Chief Awolowo’s illustrious life.
