R&B singer, Timi Dakolo will bring his art to bear in the third edition of musical drama, “Love Is…The Musical”, taking place on February 5, at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The singer who won big at the last edition of Headies Awards is expected to headline a 40-man cast in the creative presentation of a musical story of three female characters – a poet, a professional dancer and a businesswoman – who are on a journey in search of love. The show follows their journey of discovery as they attempt to answer the question “What is Love?”.
Created and directed by Ice Nweke and produced by Ixtreme and Limitless Mind Africa, organisers say “Love Is…The Musical” will be preceded by an art exhibition entitled “Love Becomes Art” at 6pm. The night will also witness comedy sets from comedians Gordons, Igos and Emma Oh Ma God as well as performances by Yinka Davies and dance group Ijodi. Completing the night’s A-list lineup are Efe Paul The Poet and The Poet Donna.
In the mind of event Producer, Clementine Vervelde, “Love Is…The Musical” is set to be the richest and most nuanced in the series thus far.
She said: “The idea behind this edition of Love Is…The Musical is to take the exploration of the theme of love to a new elemental level that resonates with everyone at a very deep part of their soul. The reference to a journey or a quest or a search of love is one that the audience will understand and connect with. At the end of the day, those in attendance will go home having watched more than just a show, but having enriched their personal experience and understanding of what love is.”
