RAI @ 3: Building Nigeria with 59 Blocks

The Permeable Wall of #Duality nay Inequality that should have been built in Jo'Burg will now be built in Lagos. Some 59 people, possibly you, will attempt to re-build #Nigeria's 59 years of independence within 59 minutes with words and bricks.

We will read, in the call and response tradition of Elegbe* our fears and dreams for the nation. We will be a reading flash mob, evocative spoken word from @outspoken_rai hosts will rent the air with accompanying string based instrumentalists. We may cry. We may heal.

As night falls, we will tear down our wall, let our hairs down and celebrate our nation's 59 years of independence and fortuitously RAI's 3rd year anniversary. You may choose not to leave till 7am in the morning.

It will start by 4pm on Tuesday 1st October 2019. It will hold at PopHub on 4, The Rock Drive, Lekki. Wouldn't you rather be one of the 59 builders ?


oversabi: Elegbe is a call and response tradition in music from the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria, popular in public gatherings viz weddings, funerals, and religious rituals.
