On Friday February 5 at the Eko Hotel Convention
Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, the audience was
treated to an outstanding audiovisual stage
experience as Love Is…The Musical 3 took place
in an amazing atmosphere of colours, lights,
music and dance.
The musical proper was preceded by an
intriguing art exhibition that featured a live
painting by show director Ice Nweke.
Immediately after the exhibition, the audience,
which had in attendance, M.D Nigerian Breweries
Nicholaas Vervelde, Darey Art Alade, Deola Art
Alade, Linda Ejiofor, Denrele, Mo Cheddah and
other notable personalities were warmed up by
Tomi Odunsi and Isaac Gerald who took the
stage in quick succession ahead of what would
prove to be a night of fantastic entertainment.
Telling the story of three women who are in
search of their answer to the question “What is
Love?” the stage play held the audience
spellbound for more than three hours as the
talents of The Poet Donna, Efe Paul the Poet and
Yinka Davies came to the fore. The crowd also
received a special treat with cameos and
performances by Gordons, Emma Oh Ma God,
Igos, Sound Sultan and signature “voice” Timi
Dakolo.
The musical reached its climax with a stunning
performance by Timi Dakolo, which showcased
his full vocal range amidst a chorus of rhythmic
lights, blazing colour and irresistible sound.
Speaking afterward, producer Clementine
Vervelde remarked,
“It is a thing of immense pride and joy to see this
idea brought to life on the big stage and I am
sure I speak on behalf of the entire cast and
crew when I say that this is one of our proudest
ever moments. I am particularly pleased that the
audience had many people who were not used to
this type of storytelling and they were carried
along. It shows that that this type of stagecraft is
taking off in Nigeria and I believe we have also
impacted positively on people present in terms of
their understanding of what Love is.”
A production of Limitless Minds Africa in
partnership with Ixtreme Production, Love Is…
The Musical 3 was brought to life by a 40-man
cast and crew.
