Demi Robinson of the defunct Village Headmaster fame, has returned to the scene, this timeÂ not as actor, but with a stage show titled Ajantala.
The show, according to him, is a satire and interpretation of events that had taken place inÂ Nigeria in the last 49 years, explaining that the title of the play was coined out of theÂ popular Yoruba saying, Aja to ja ni ita nla.
He said that the show, which is being supported by the Lagos State Government, is dedicatedÂ to fallen heroes, the spirit of Kingâ€™s Collegeâ€™s school song, the exemplary life and theÂ leadership role of some old boys of the college.
The show, he said, will first be staged at MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos, on 8 October, in aÂ command performance for the state government, to be followed by another show at the NationalÂ Arts Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos, on 15 and 16 October, 2010.
Femi Robinson said that part of the aim of the stage play is to bring back life to theÂ theatre as well as give the younger ones the opportunity to excel, among other things.
