The cast of ‘Colour Me Man’

Earlier this month, ‘Colour Me Man’, a stage play that explores the struggles and experiences of Nigerian men was showcased in Lagos, Nigeria.

The play directed by Najite Dede stars Deyemi Okanlawon, Timi Charles-Fadipe, Toju Ejoh, Seun Kentebe, Ola-Rotimi Fakunle and Simi Hassan.

‘Colour Me Man’ was produced by The Naked Convos in collaboration with Gbagyichild Entertainment, producers of Taruwa Arts and Culture Festival.

The play, inspired by the play 'For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf' by Ntozake Shange was adapted for stage by Ikenna Jude Okpala, Oluwole Talabi and Pemi Agude.

The story is based on an array of monologues written by young Nigerian male bloggers. Their stories explore habits, which may cause a man to be stereotyped by society.
