Stage Play SHIFT LEMME FAINT! Premieres in Lagos & Abuja


Gbagyichild Entertainment [The Company behind monthly event TARUWA] is out with another classic! The hilarious stage play ‘SHIFT LEMME FAINT!

Shift Lemme Faint!‘  is a set of witty monologues written by some of Nigeria’s finest writers depicting life in Nigeria and adapted into a stage production. These monologues and conversations are about the peculiarities of being Nigerian, in other words… our ridiculousness as Nigerians, because as we like to say, “We Nigerians are special!”. The play is hilarious and explores subjects like religion, the police, parenting, food, our culture & lifestyle and of course going down memory lane. All these will be explored with brilliantly written dramatic monologues, infused with beautiful music & dance and interpreted by stellar actors:

Beverly Naya [Wedding Party], Akah Nnani [Banana Island Ghost], Najite Dede [Ojos in the House], Omoye Uzamere [Aduke Hotel], & Daniel Effiong [Gidi Up


Excerpt from the play:


Some Nigerian tailors are wonderful people I swear!
You’ll give a Nigerian tailor your fabric in 1967 and say to him/her,
‘Abeg oh I go use am for 2015, shey e go don ready by then?’
To which they’ll reply,

         ‘Ah ah Oga! Why you dey talk like this. 2015 still far na. Me? Tailor swift? Oga, come by 12 midnight for 1970 e go don ready. I go do correct throw back Thursday for you. No worry.’

And you know how the story goes. It is 2017 and you’re yet to get that cloth, generations after generations…


ShiftLemmeFaint is curated & produced by Lydia Idakula Sobogun and directed by Kenneth Uphopho.
