Already, VFD Group has indicated interest to be funding partners while Access Bank and Sterling Bank would be bankers to the project. The Executive Chairman of Duke of Shomolu Productions, Joseph Edgar, said the project, which has been named the Duke of Shomolu Arena, – the Peoples theatre – will be a main vehicle for peoples empowerment, wealth and job creation and, much more importantly, a vehicle for the preservation and continuous enthronement of cultural ethos and traditions.
According to him, the project would engage over 1,000 youths serially and while giving about 100 Nigerians the opportunity to hold a 20 per cent stake on its way to be listed on the Nigerian Stock Excbange as the very first theatre production Company on the influential bourse. In its bid to achieve this, it has enlisted the support of Kedari Capital, an influential investment banking franchise that would be Joint Financial Advisers with Hamilton and George Limited.
