Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu noted that the performance was a unique and inspiring performance that Lagos could proudly export to the world.

Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf

In her presentation, Ms. Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf, Lagos State Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, said the concept was designed to project Lagos as a major destination that would continue to attract local and international tourists for entertainment, art and culture.

Akinbile-Yusuf noted that the collaboration with QDance was intended to serve as a means to expand the concept of tourism.

He said it was also about bringing about a paradigm shift from conventional models of heritage-based cultural tourism to new models of creative tourism.

For his part, Onikeku explained that the choreography was written with a highly musical structure combined with an intricate and carefully designed visual aesthetic in three parts: birth, death, and rebirth.

Onikeku said it offered the world access to the ingenuity and hospitality of Lagos residents.

He added that the new creation was, however, the result of six years of continuous research with young dancers in Nigeria.
