Temi Otedola makes her stage debut in 'Motherland The Musical'
She dazzles on stage as a young Fulani girl in love in a difficult time.
Directed and produced by Nigeria’s ‘Queen of Theatre’ Bolanle Austen Peters; the play was a perfect blend of costuming and storytelling.
In the stage play, Otedola acts and sings as ‘Young Hassana', a Fulani girl who must navigate forbidden love amidst the political and social turmoil of 1957 Nigeria.
As she has long demonstrated in her film roles, she is a marvellously physical actor. She outdoes herself here, showing dexterity and versatility with her singing and acting.
Set in Modern Day Nigeria, but making many references to the past, 'Motherland' is a fast-paced, educational and emotional look into Nigeria's history and the country's current state.
The play features actors like Francis Onwochei, Bamike Olawunmi-Adenibuyan and Uzo Osimkpa.
Nigerian-born and educated in the UK, Otedola has established herself as Nigeria’s newest acting ingénue.
