Rhyme and Reason 2017: Eversion
For the very first time ever in Nigeria, RnR 2017 presented a Broadway-styled rap and spoken word musical themed “Eversion”.
The intention was to take drama to another level, as every dialogue in this masterfully scripted production was presented in either rap or spoken word.
Our star-packed cast included P4cm’s Ezekiel Azonwu, and some of Nigeria’s finest such as Daboomsha, Ami (formerly Provabs), Gamie and a host of others.
Eversion held on the 15th of July at the Lekki Coliseum. We had two shows: 3-5pm and 6-8pm on the same day.
The show was definitely one to see. None like it had ever happened before. Everyone that attended was glad they were a part of that moment in history.
