She is stunning on stage as a young Fulani girl who is in love during a difficult period.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Temi Otedola, an actress and media personality, made her theatrical debut in “Motherland The Musical.”
The performance, directed and produced by Nigeria’s “Queen of Theatre,” Bolanle Austen Peters, was the ideal fusion of costume design and narrative.
Otedola performs as “Young Hassana” in the theatrical drama, a Fulani girl who must negotiate forbidden love in the social unrest and political unrest in 1957 Nigeria.
She is a marvelously physical performer, as she has long shown in her cinema appearances. She surpasses herself in this song, displaying agility and adaptability in her acting and singing.
‘Motherland’ is a fast-paced, instructive, and vibrant look into Nigeria’s history and the nation’s current status. It is set in modern-day Nigeria but has many allusions to the past.
Actors like Francis Onwochei, Bamike Olawunmi-Adenibuyan, and Uzo Osimkpa appear in the drama.
Born in Nigeria and schooled in the UK, Otedola has made a name for herself as the country’s newest acting talent.
She has gained notoriety in recent years thanks to her acting roles in films like “Citation,” a Netflix Original, and “The Man for the Job,” an Amazon Prime Original, which have established her as a star to watch in Nollywood.
