The coming of age story is an exclusive celebration of womanhood, brought alive through an all-female ensemble that will feature the soul stirring poetry of Titilope Sonuga and the breathtaking vocals of powerhouse performers, Ruby Gyang, Omolara, Falana and Deborah Ohiri.
Sonuga, formerly based in Canada, stunned lovers of poetry last Friday also at Agip Recital Hall with her poetic virtuoso. So, too, did Falana, who was also formerly based in Havana, Cuba, with her guitar and vocal prowess. They both performed at the maiden edition of Lagos International Poetry Festival that ended on Sunday. With the other three women, Becoming promises to be a spectacular performance that will tell the unique story of women in an effort to liberate them from age-old stereotypes and cultural prejudice.
