Wana Udobang has kicked off the second season of the web series Culture Diaries with Nollywood actress, Ade Laoye .
A Nollywood actress, Laoye spoke about her love for acting, her transition from theatre to primetime TV and the challenges encountered in her career.
Speaking about theatre in Nigeria, the actress who has featured in stage productions like "Saro The Musical" said, "In Nigeria, there seems to be a renaissance of sorts going on. I am definitely thankful for people like Keke Hammond, Bolanle Austen-Peters and Wole Oguntokun for keeping the flame of theatre going. I would love to see Lagos have its own Broadway".
