‘Motherland the Musical’, the show directed by Bolanle Austen-Peters, the filmmaker, will premiere at Terra Kulture Arena from December 23 to January 2, 2023.


The musical will premiere a single show at 7 pm next Friday, and then run two shows — afternoon and evening — on Saturday, December 24, 26, 27, 30, and 31.

In 2023, it will also maintain its afternoon and evening shows on January 1 and 2, with tickets purchased through www.terrakulture.com.

For a premium experience, the VVIP experience comes with increased comfort with seats that have extra legroom, drinks and canapés, and a gift bag with show merchandise.


The play is a collaboration between Bolanle Austen-Peters (BAP) Productions and Terra Kulture.


When confronted by a group of young political rallyists who are fed up with the state of the country, an Igbo man and a Fulani woman share the story of their romance starting in 1957, on the brink of Nigeria’s independence, and how the country’s history has shaped their love.


Through music, romance and necessary conversations, ‘Motherland the Musical’ tells the story of Nigeria; the past, the present and the hopes for the future.

It will feature performances from Temi Otedola, Tosin Adeyemi, Kelvin Mary Ndukwe and Uzo Osimkpa, among others.

Austen-Peters, while speaking about the musical, described her vision for it as “a showcase of the story of Nigeria, highlighting the beauty of our different cultures while also acknowledging the perspective of the young people who want to be a part of the change that takes this nation to greater heights. It will be an entertaining, colourful and rich show with an engaging story, exciting musical numbers and a beautiful message.”

BAP Productions is a production company committed to showcasing the culture, experiences, and glamour of Nigerians through art.


With almost a decade worth of experience, the company has produced nine plays that have been performed on three continents including ‘Saro the Musical’, ‘Wakaa the Musical’, ‘Fela and The Kalakuta Queens’, and ‘Death and the King’s Horseman’ written by Wole Soyinka.
