How has the story of Saro The Musical influenced you personally?
Personally, Saro has been a blessing and has influenced me positively, in the course of preparation, I have been made to step out of my comfort zone; I have been taught to be persistent in my struggle for growth - a behaviour common to the 'Saro' the freetown settlers in Lagos, the play has shed more light on my history as well as that of the state I live in. It has broadened my horizons.

The final day, that graceful moment when we take our bow after the very last show.
