‘A Truth in Time’, the stage play depicting the life and times of Muhammad Sanusi II, the 14th emir of Kano state, had its screening in Lagos and Abuja on Saturday.
According to NAN, the screening of the two-day stage play was held at the Muson Centre in Lagos.
It is understood that the screening of the project would come to an end today.
The project, produced by the Duke of Shomolu Productions, examines the drama and intrigues surrounding the dethronement of both emir Sanusi I and his grandson emir Sanusi II.
Ahmed Yerima is the playwright while Emmanuel Adeejumo (Boy Sala) is the co-director.
The stage play relies heavily on the eyewitness account of the lace guards who served both emirs.
In 2020, Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, approved the destoolment of Sanusi, for “total disrespect to the office of the governor”.
The state executive council chaired by Ganduje stated that the removal was reached in order to safeguard the sanctity, culture, tradition, religion, and prestige of the emirate.
Aminu Bayero, son of the late Ado Bayero and emir of Bichi, would later be installed as his replacement.
The three-cast stage play starts with a couple whose marriage was in tatters.
It also addresses topical issues such as insecurity, child marriage, and the culture of the Fulani and other people in northern Nigeria.
