“Everyone is incredibly proud of Lala for what she has achieved here with ‘The Wives’; it continues a trend that this incredible young woman has made a habit, pushing trends with big passion projects including the V Monologues and Open Mic Theatre,” said Adebola Williams who played the lawyer around whom the play’s twist was built. “On a personal level, it was gratifying to come back to the stage after 14 long years and to join an excellent cast of Nigeria’s best. Acting has always been my first love – and I was glad to see each performance get a resounding applause and the finale, a standing ovation.”
