It was a day of total theatre feast at the March edition of Live in Theatre, held at Neca Hall, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos. Theatre Centrik again took centre stage with their performance of the play titled Owonri Meji (The Sojourn). The play talks about three jolly friends who are in sojourn from Isalu Orun to the earth to fulfil their destiny and bring joy and happiness to the people.

In the pursuit of happiness they must sacrifice to ensure the filthiness in the world of man does not sore their garment of divinity. Then the big instruction for them was to sacrifice; instead of following the simple instruction of sacrifice they went ahead fighting and contesting who to be the leader or spokesman.

This certainly destroyed the fulfilment of the journey of the trio except The Gong who was patient enough to sacrifice. She understood that there is no way you can be a leader or a successful person without sacrifice. This comes in different forms; diligence, obedience, sensitivity, humility, passion, and truthfulness – these are part of life sacrifice.

“Oworin Meji is a play about life, existence and interactions; the connection between those around us and those within our reach.

We at Theatre Centrik used the play to remind Nigerians and indeed the world, that leadership shouldn’t be seen as a thing of force or a birth right, but that anyone who is not ready to sacrifice should not consider being a leader, the founder and artistic director of Theatre Centrik, Tony Biyi Boyede said, adding that the event also serves as a platform to remind friends, clients, colleagues and the general public of its core values which is to raise a right thinking and patriotic youths for future positive engagements and development.

The event attracted prominent personalities including Mrs. Tokunbo Johnson of Lihams School, Mrs Itohan Otts, Ebele D Flutist, Mr. Femi Ogundare Wahab of the clique , several entrepreneurs and other stakeholders
