From Wakaa The Musical to the acclaimed Fela and the Kalakuta Queens, she has made a name for herself in Nigerian theatre.
This year, Bolanle Austen-Peters Production (BAP Productions) is back with a new musical about the legendary Queen Moremi of Ile-Ife. At a point in the 12th century, the kingdom of Ile Ife was at war with an unnamed Igbo tribe. To save her people, Queen Moremi, the wife of the king at the time promised to sacrifice all she could to the spirit of the river Esimirin.

Consequently, she was captured by the Igbo army and eventually married the chief who was enticed by her beauty. She used this marriage to her advantage as she escaped back to Ile-Ife after learning the secrets of their enemy. As a result, the kingdom was able to drive out their opposition with the valuable information Moremi provided.
Moremi is easily one of the most important figures in Nigerian history. Leaving her home and loved one behind to save her people is a story of bravery and sacrifice. We can’t wait to see how BAP Productions interpretes this legendary story when the musical shows at Terrakulture this December.
