On Sunday, March 24, the prolific poet and spoken word artist will be staging ‘Let’s Be Honest’ at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The performance will provide his Lagos audience an opportunity to see the wordsmith on stage in this whimsical, funny, insightful and refreshing look at love. Chukwumerije discusses the critical role lies and half-truths play in building relationships, and examines when and where honesty is important. He questions the rationale for giving up personal dreams in pursuit of love, and discusses the gender bias built into relationships.
Using a gripping mix of poetry, storytelling and drama, the production draws audiences into a world where love is flawed, gritty, human and beautiful. The next Sunday will also see him performing his critically acclaimed ‘Man Made Gods’ at same venue.
