Yesterday was my 17th birthday.
I had a great day.
Thanks to everyone who called, sent messages and thanks for prayers and wishes.
God bless all of you plenty plenty.
I went to watch Saro the Musical with my mum yesterday. It was at Oriental Hotel.
I won a free ticket from 360Nobs Twitter giveaway and I was supposed to get it at the venue
When I got there, I’m like oh I’ve come to claim much ticket oh.
Next thing: “you’re not on the list”
I’m just like
So I whip out my phone and I’m looking for my confirmation email but network was poor so it wasn’t coming up.
Mums was getting angry and was like we’re leaving sef. After some “halemo-ing” they allowed me in.
When we got in, it was 1:36pm. Show started at 1pm.
It. Was. Amazing. I laughed a lot. There was a scene where they were singing a love song and I had tears in my eyes.
The music was beautiful, the dances were amazing, the acting was wonderful. Hair & Costume was too beautiful. I couldn’t see the makeup from where I was but I’m guessing it was good to.
My favourite scene was when they came to Lagos and they were at Yaba motor park. It was hilarious.
They sang songs from Zombie (Fela) to Durosoke (Olamide). From songs by King Sunny Ade, Ebenezer Obey and the likes to Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and P Square.
It was a great show and I’d watch it again.
